So Here is little information regarding the new Premio.
It is a luxury sedan, that combines superior fuel economy with a smooth transmission, quite ride, and powerful performance.
They are sized and priced between Corolla and Camry. Premio is designed for local Japanese market & sister Allion is a sportier version compared to Premio. Premio is bigger in size than most sedans and is advertised as Family/Executive class. Premio's bloodline can be traced to the old Corona. It is mostly for middle aged, conservative driving style guys as advertised [emoji6]
Premio is supposed to be more luxury and traditional, while Allion appears to be younger but just in relative terms though.
These twins are designed to be cost effective and economical to run. They offer a fuel-saving CVT and 3 choices of engines: 110hp 1.5-liter VVT-i (which falls in lower tax band), 136hp 1.8-liter dual-VVT-i and the new 158hp 2.0-liter dual-VVT-i with Valvematic. The latter is Toyota's equivalent to BMW's Valvetronic, which continuously varies the lift of intake valves to reduce pumping loss and improve breathing efficiency. To a 1270 kg machine, the 158hp engine is plenty powerful.
Valvematic represents a positive evolution of Toyota's patented variable valve timing with intelligence technology (VVT-i ), allowing for throttle-free control of engine speed.
Regarding valvematic it provides some advantages
1.better operating performance; as the engine runs more efficiently
2. good mileage; the latest technologies generate economical driving
3.cleaner, greener operation
