Missed this earlier because my YouTube account wasn't viewing the livestream, but the good people at Toyota sent us important information about the new Toyota Viios GR-S variant. This was built with their TOYOTA GAZOO Racing brand (who developed guided its creation) in mind and yes, it looks absolutely impressive. The passenger car gets an upgrade and they made it motorsports worthy.
According to Toyota Motors Philippines President Atsuhiro Okamoto, he says "In the country, there are over 340,000 owners of the VIOS model. They know these are the most reliable, tried and tested which serve as their companion in their daily lives. We want every ride to be more pleasurable hence the Vios GR-S. Whether on the track or on the road, this will give you the thrill in your everyday drive."
It's going to be available on March 15, 2021 and if you haven't seen it yet in person, maybe a visit to your local dealership would be fine while observing protocols. As for aesthetics, this has a more sporty look hence the striking exterior, especially the front bumper, grille, aerokit and spoiler. Aside from that, the interiors look immaculate with the stitching and suede material on its seats. The 10-speed CVT transmission variety also has 7 airbags + clearance sonars with your safety in mind. It comes in White Pearl Crystal Shine, Super Red V or Black 1 colorways. SRP is around Php 1,020,000-1,035,000.
You can watch the online public launch on March 13, 2021 (Saturday) at 6PM via their Facebook and YouTube channel. If you think this is your drive, you can find out more information at toyota.com.ph.
