Not one to rest on its laurels, Toyota Motor Philippines further solidifies its foothold on the segment by unveiling an affordable yet decently-equipped variant, the Vios XE. This Xtra Economical, Xtra Efficient, and Xtra Easy to drive model packs quite a lot of features for its P735,000 pricetag.

For that kind of money, you get the tried-and-tested 1.3-liter Dual VVT-I engine that has proven its worth when it comes to fuel efficiency. It is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission that makes for easy driving in and around the Metro’s gridlocked streets.

Stuff like power steering, windows, and doorlocks, as well as a 7-inch touchscreen display with a load of connectivity otions. And safety kit such as ABS, Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, and 7 SRS airbags are likewise standard.
