The Toyota Vios (Japanese: トヨタ ・ヴィオス, Toyota Viosu) is a four-door subcompact sedan produced by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota, primarily for emerging markets in the Asia Pacific region. Introduced in 2002, the Vios serves as the replacement to the Tercel (marketed as Soluna in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore), which filled the Asian subcompact or B-segment class, below the Corolla and Camry which are also sold in the region. Beginning 2005, the Vios was also marketed alongside its hatchback complement, the Yaris in most Asia Pacific countries. The second generation Vios is known as the Yaris sedan in the United States, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, the Middle East, and Australia. The name Vios is derived from Latin and means “to move forward”.

All models use the same 1.5 L 1NZ-FE engine from the previous model. Additional features are available on top of the basic equipment in the premium variant which consists of a front/rear aero kit, smart entry system, engine push start button, smart climate control, multi-information display (MID) and piano lacquered trim.
