2016 Toyota VIOS 2NR-FE 1.5 dual VVTI from Malaysia


Reliable but boring


Day running light (DRL) went off at 14000km.

General Comments:

The car is not fun to drive, handles poorly and has a boring CVT gearbox.

Limited space and compartment.

Bought the car because of the reliability. Toyota is well known for its engine and transmissions. Fuel consumption is good, parking is easy, as it is equipped with a reverse camera. Mine got VSC and traction control, braking is safe and proper. Generally, if you are looking for a fun car, the Vios is not the one.

Will update for any faults and flaws.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

True! Our family also has a Toyota Vios 1.5 G dual VVTi 2016 model. I agree that it is a reliable and dependable car, but I find it pretty dull and boring. Legroom space in the back is good, but for the driver, things can get uncomfortable, especially in heavy traffic or after a drive in the expressway. Reaching 80-100 kph on the expressway puts a strain on the engine and it already has a hard time maintaining the maximum speed limit here. There is absolutely a lack of enjoyment whenever I drive this car. I drove it more often when it was very new, but later on, I would rather take Uber, take a cab, or take public transportation, although I would still use this to go to rough places or whenever I just feel like it. We also have a 2013 Camry and a newly bought Fortuner, and we would use those often since they are more comfortable to drive and ride in, plus they have a more luxurious feel. This Vios is not too used often since it's just our extra car.
