The Toyota Vios has been the country’s most sold car unit for the past six years consecutively. This 4-door sub compact sedan is a popular taxicab model especially for airport metered taxis. It is currently available in a 1.3 Liter and a 1.5 Liter powertrain and is grouped in four trim levels.
This five-seater car is a favorite among young professionals. In 2013 alone, more than 15,000 brand new units of this model were sold locally. Because of its well-packaged standard features and affordability, Filipinos have grown to love this car over the past decade.

Why buy a second hand Vios
Seeing a Vios on the streets of the Philippines is a common occurrence; you may even think that it is the only sedan car out there together with the Mitsubishi Lancer and Honda City. However, what car buyers specifically like about the Vios is its “bang for their buck.” The Vios is equipped with good standard features and a superb fuel-efficient engine, and also has a low maintenance cost.
The service history of a Vios can easily tell you that it was built to last. Even the first generations of this vehicle, which were released in 2002, still brave the congested roads of the metro.
People looking for a bargain will surely like to buy a used Vios as it retains its value for money. On average, the price of a used Vios E trim 2013 for example, can drop by forty percent, making it more affordable at just P500,000.
Tips for buying a Vios
It is important to note that the Vios has a wide trim level, with the upper trims G and V, having leather seats and alloy wheels. Always inquire about the features of the car and make sure that it has an acceptable mileage on its odometer which will indicate whether car has been used extensively or not. On average, a car should spend no more than 19,000 miles on the road per year, to ensure that it still runs optimally.
