The 2010 Toyota Vios Facelift model arrived at all Peninsular Malaysia Toyota showrooms since 16th April 2010. For those are still new to Toyota Vios models, they offers Vios 1.5 Automatic Transmission with TRD Sportivo, G, E, J Spec and Manual Transmission with J Spec. All variants having the same engine and price range from RM71,990 to RM92,000.
So far, Toyota Vios and Nissan Sentra is the only 2 Japanese Passenger Cars that offering Manual Transmission besides the sports car like Civic Type R. – Which I am proud of that they know what the markets wants.
There are always people saying, Toyota selling uncle’ car with uncle spec’. Things are totally different now. UMW Toyota now finally knows what the market wants.In this article, I would concentrate on the comparisons between G Spec and E Spec.

After the new facelift, the E Spec now come with Dark coloured Interior which suddenly make things totally different – Much nicer, more ultramodern.
Prospective buyers that prefer beige interior and chrome finishing, they can now go for G Spec. While young owner that wants something sportier, you have option of J, E Spec or the TRD Sportivo.
The G Spec comes with integrated audio head unit while the E Spec comes with Standard double-din audio head unit with MP3, WMA and 4 Speakers. Overall, is not a bad thing as now you can fit aftermarket’ double-din multimedia head unit with reverse camera by simply replacing it without changing the panel.
For E Spec, there is no chrome package. As results of that, the parking brake knob, centre register knob, shift lever housing and inside door handle come in black colour.
For steering wheel, you still get the new design with flat bottom that similar with the new 2010 Toyota Wish in Japan but without leather wrap and audio controller.
For TRD Sportivo, G Spec and E Spec, they all come with dual Front SRS Airbag.
The interior seats now uses dark grey fabric and the rear seats come with 60:40 Split Foldable.
For G Spec and E Spec, both get the power adjustable & retractable with Turn Indicator. There is no Door Visor for E Spec as it is limited to the TRD Sportivo and G Spec.
Furthermore, E Spec doesn’t have Body Side Moulding which makes the car look a little plain comparing to G Spec and the TRD Sportivo.
The E Spec remains using the rim from the pre-facelift model. For E Spec and J Spec, the rear brakes come with Drum instead of Solid Disc.
