Toyota is gearing up for the 2018 Auto Expo and will be showing the brand new Vios sedan at the event. The Vios will be positioned as a premium mid-size offering above the Platinum Etios and will take on formidable rivals in the segment like the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. It will also compete with the likes of the Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid in the Indian market. The new Vios will be a major attraction for visitors at the 2018 Auto Expo and is the same as the Yaris which is sold in several global markets.
Going by initial reports, the Vios will first launch with a sub-100 BHP petrol mill while there is no official word on the introduction of a diesel engine in the future. The interesting bit is that some reports state that Toyota may consider launching a hybrid or all-electric Vios powertrain later on as well. The Toyota pavilion at the Auto Expo will sport the Today, Tomorrow and Future theme.

There may be the Concept-I-Ride or Concept-Fine-Comfort electric concept shown at the event as well. There will be some facelifted models on display as well. While the Innova Crysta, Fortuner and Corolla have already launched in brand new avatars, expect some changes to models like the Liva and Etios.
