Latest reports suggest that the 2019 Toyota Vios could come completely redesigned. The popular subcompact sedan has been around for years. Designed for developing markets of South Asia, it originally came in 2002. So far, we have seen three generations of it and all versions were in tight relation with the more familiar subcompact hatchback Yaris. We have no reason to believe that the new version will continue in the same way. At the moment, we don’t have a lot of details about the new model. Latest reports suggest that we should expect to see new version riding on the company’s new modular platform. This would provide a lot of improvements for sure. Besides weight reduction, expect to see some new powertrain options in the offer as well. Of course, a new styling seems like a certain thing too. Expect to see 2019 Vios next year.
2019 Toyota Vios Redesign
The current model is present since 2012. Considering the usual production cycle of this subcompact car, next year should bring a new generation to us. This would mean improvements in all aspect. At the moment, we still don’t have any official information about the new 2019 Toyota Vios, so we must rely on rumors primarily.
According to our reliable source, the Japanese manufacturer prepares a new architecture for this small sedan. This would mean a new TNGA platform, which will surely bring some significant improvements. The new architecture is highly modular, so the company probably won’t have bigger problems to adapt it to such small car like Vios.
The benefits should be numerous. First of all, the new model should be lighter, thanks to the use of lightweight materials. Some new engines are possible as well. All in all, the biggest improvement should be in terms of efficiency.
2019 Toyota Vios Exterior and Interior Design
Besides completely new mechanics, significant improvements are expected in terms of styling as well.

Of course, we will see a new dashboard layout, with a bunch of new tech features and more attractive appearance. Besides more style, the 2019 Toyota Vios will come with more practicality as well. Considering all the benefits that TNGA brings, there is no doubt that the new model will feature better space efficiency, which eventually means more room for passengers and more cargo volume as well.
2019 Toyota Vios Engines
The current generation comes with several engines in the offer. The powertrain lineup differs from market to market. Most likely, many of these units will carry over.

Same goes to the slightly smaller 1.3-liter unit, which is in offer on markets like Malaysia and Indonesia. This unit is good for about 95 horsepower. As we’ve already mentioned, the new platform could easily bring some new engines in the offer. One of the engines that seems quite possible for certain market is a super-efficient 1.2-liter turbo engine, which is good for about 115 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. It also provides great mpg ratings, which is crucial for this segment.
