But it is based on internet survey and the survey that we did before.We are neutral and we can’t say which one is better.We’re pretty sure that there’s a sizeable number of buyers who are going to buy the Honda City or Toyota Vios on purely rational ground.
The driving environment in both cars emphasises user-friendliness. Instrumentation and other controls are in their logical place. Whether the Vios’s centrally positioned panel dials are better or not than the City’s conventional layout is merely a matter of personal preference because both are effective in their own rights.

the new vios look like dugong le :X..
I 100% choose City.
1st- Because whole engine and gearbox is new! Instead of using old tech like Vios.
2nd- 5speed automatic compare to Vios 4 speed.
4th- 16” wheels
5th- Better Fuel Economy
No matter Toyota put 1.3 in Vios, it also leading! Because he is Tai Kor in our market.. People purchase Toyota because Toyota has been well established in worldwide so do Malaysia. No matter it’s good or bad people 1st will consider Toyota!
Just my 2 cents.

I’m driving Toyota Vios S type..when drive at h.way at 150km/h it’s such drive 110km/h using wira..smooth and steady..=)
Quote from DAV2277 (…for quality, dont xpect ct n vios have problem free…. my advice, go n test drive…. look their plastic part, ct n vios oso used cheap plastic….)
Agree with you. Last week I was at SS14 Toyota showroom. There were 3 Vios in the showrrom. As I enetred the 1st one, the first thing that struck me was that there was a HUGE UNSIGHTLY GAP netween the radio panel and the grey dashboard. I think the gap was about 2 mm wide but as it is also uneven at some places perhaps 5 to 6mm. I thot perhaps that for this particular unit the radio panel was not fixed properrly but the same thing was also on the other 2 units.
Somehow the dashboard does not cover the radio panel well. As for the price the Vios goes for 90k, 30k more than the Persona SE. Of course our Boleh gahmen makes sure that this is so. If the playing field had been level, Proton would find it extremely tough to sell even with their best model.
There are two colour schemes one black and one beige.In Thailand and Singapore also has two colour scheme.Both will likely be used by Honda Malaysia, with the black for a high-spec or sports-specced version of the car and a beige one for the other.
But from the information that we got from the Honda website.The interior colour for Grade S and Grade E Honda City in Malaysia is Black. Honda said that specifications may vary in some cases and can be changed.
