Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) made a big reveal today with the launch of the new Vios GR-S. Along with that one, though, TMP also made another important announcement: It has made some significant changes across the Vios range.

We already made mention of this in our previous article, but now we have confirmation (and more accurate details): The new Apple CarPlay- and Android Auto-compatible infotainment system on the Vios GR-S, as well as steering-wheel-mounted Bluetooth controls, is now available on XE variants and up.

In addition, the G, XLE, and E variants get a new seat design, while the XLE and E variants now wear new alloy wheels. XE variants have also been given two extra speakers.

As expected, there are some price changes made across the lineup—as a matter of fact, the changes have been in effect since March 2. Former top-spec G variants get significant P86,000 cuts, while others get significant price bumps. For a better look, you can check out the table below:
