2010 Toyota Vios E Facelift fog lights

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.

2010 Toyota Vios E Facelift Audio

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.

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.

    other than the drum brakes, i think Vios E-Spec is a good buy…personally don’t really fancy chrome on the G spec anyway..

  • edvin

    I don’t really fany the rear solid disc brakes too. I think E-Spec is a good one if they add in body side moulding. That’s best.

    Hi Naz,

    I think you can get the front grill from Toyota Parts Centre.. Since the bumper didnt change.. should be PnP.

    Hi there,
    I would like to ask, where can i get the Vois Door Side Moulding in the market? i just bought the E spec and the door side look so plain.

    I’m driving Vois Grey Mica.

    Thank you.

    nice but i’m agree with edvin..add side moulding with same price.

  • talulu does lalulu at hawaii

    just booking Vios E,, but suddenly thinking to change honda city. any comments regards!!

  • Edvin

    The most obvious differentiation between the Toyota Vios and Honda City will be the 4-speed vs 5-speed automatic transmission. For Vios E, the rear brakes are drum. Engine max output is higher for City but Vios is smoother.

    At the end, it depends what kind of budget, styling and room size that you are seeking. Both are good cars with great values.
