The dust hasn't quite settled from the launch of the Rush, and Toyota is already pulling the trigger on its second model launch for the year. This one's The Big One. Spy shots have been circulating on social media for months, and over a hundred thousand people have signed up for a chance to attend the public launch party--though few of them will actually get in.
For the sake of secrecy, we're shooting atop an isolated parking building. At two in the morning. In the rain. The shops around us have long since closed, and the light drizzle keeps threatening to break out into a full-blown rainstorm.
The crew are scrubbing furiously to remove residue from the duct tape used to disguise the car during daytime transits. Talk turns to non-disclosure agreements, as we snatch furtive bites of cold dinner between photo sessions. Hard to imagine this much hype over a car starting at a measly P659,000. One that already broke cover internationally last year.
The Vios is just that kind of car.
