Toyota’s best-selling subcompact sedan, the Toyota Vios, and its stylish hatchback, the Toyota Yaris, has been updated to carry dual VVT-i engines and CVT.

The upgraded versions of the Vios and Yaris promise a more powerful and fuel-efficient drive as it comes with the new NR-series engine that is also equipped with Dual VVT-i and Continuous Variable Transmissions (CVT) for the A/T variants.

Aside from better mileage and fuel economy, the updated engine gives both cars higher engine output and decreased fuel emissions similar to other Toyota vehicles like the Altis, Camry, and Rav4. Meanwhile, the Vios and Yaris variants with automatic transmission benefits from the new CVT by getting a 7-speed-like sequential shift mode instead of the 4-speed gearbox in the previous models.

Both cars also come with a refreshed looks. The Yaris now has a sportier feel to its interior seat fabric and a new dark silver face display for the audio head unit. Meanwhile, the Vios comes with new chrome trims for fog lamps (G variant). As for the colors of the new models, the Vios added two shade options—alumina jade metallic and blackish red mica—while the Yaris retains its standard color lineup.
