Toyota has launched its TRD Sportivo variant on the Vios sedan in Thailand, with prices starting at 694,000 THB (INR 13.17 lakhs). Available in colors of ‘Super White’ and ‘Black Mica’, the Vios TRD Sportivo gets a host of cosmetic updates, but its mechanicals remain unchanged.

The Vios is offered with a 1.5-liter 109 PS petrol engine in Thailand.

The exterior sees a TRD bodykit with side skirts, a chin spoiler with integrated LED daytime running lights and a diffuser-like element for the rear bumper. A piano-black grille complements the slightly blackened headlight clusters which get projector lights.

New 15-inch alloy wheels, a stainless steel exhaust system, an integrated spoiler and body graphics are other changes to be found on the sedan.

Inside, Toyota has opted for an all-black layout with leather upholstery for the seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearlever. On the feature front, a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth telephony, HDMI, SD-Card and USB ports, which doubles up as a display for the reverse camera is offered. Other minor changes include TRD Sportivo badges and new carpets.
