From post 131, it's the trd ( Toyota racing development ) variant of the vios. The other one which you liked is the normal variant of vios.

The new generation Vios even takes some styling cues from the new Camry, some of which are visible from the car's exterior profile. The car came with alloy wheels and electrical ORVMs with integrated turn signal lights. That said, the test mule did not have projector headlamps or LED tail lamp.

Multiple sources seem to suggest that an India launch is imminent. If someone with inside information can shed more light, it would be useful. Perhaps they are waiting for response to the Platinum Etios before deciding whether to offer this in the Indian market.

Spotted doing the testing rounds by Zigwheels' spies.

Another test mule, with a temporary Karnataka number plate, was spotted recently in Lonavla. The car wore no camouflage but the Toyota logo was taken off the front grille.

From the outside, the car looks more upmarket than its smaller sibling, the Etios. The front design is reminiscent of the Corolla Altis, thanks to the front grille and the swept-back design of the headlights. Just like the Etios, the Viosí side profile looks rather simple, but the eight-spoke alloy wheels immediately demand attention. At the back, the wraparound taillights design has a touch of the Hyundai Verna.

I think Toyota might be too late on this one. I think there's no chance this car will be launched at all. They may just be testing some other engine (or hybrid powerplant) with this body.

Why I think they won't sell this car: The car shown in the picture was third generation car launched in 2013. Considering it'll be phased out by 2018 or 2019, there's no point in investing on the manufacturing setup just to sell the car for two years. Considering the dismal performance of the Etios and the fiercely competitive segments priced between 9-13 lakh, they better put their best effort if they want volumes. The new Verna is not too far away and Honda City's face lift is expected soon.

If Toyota wants to, they can sell an old model for a long time.

I checked the prices and interiors of the Vios on the Thai Toyota website. When converted to INR, the cheapest one is about 12 lacs and its goes upto 15 lacs. The interiors themselves are relatively spartan and look at least one generation old if not two. There is no rear AC vent, no touchscreen ICE, no SAT NAV - I am assuming that like in most markets - the interior 360 degree view captures the top variant rather than the bottom variant. With such features and prices, it would be wise to declare the product DoA.

Corolla Altis price in India is around 75% of what it is in Malaysia.
Applying the same logic, the pricing should be in the range of 9.3 lakhs to 11.7 lakhs ex-showroom in India
