However, the rear is still mostly the same. The new rear lights resemble the lights of the previous model, and the bottom of the rear bumper is slightly move curved. Sides of the car are almost the same, and no much is going on there.

The Chinese-market Vios is powered by 1.3-liter and 1.5-liter 5NR-FE four-cylinder engines with Dual VVT-i, mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic. However, there is a rumor that Toyota will be offering the 2NR-FE engine as well as a CVT transmission for some markets as well.
