The Toyota Vios is the best-selling car in the Philippines. It was only natural for Filipino car enthusiasts to get all worked up when they received news of the all-new model's arrival. The official unveiling is scheduled at the Bangkok International Motor Show this week, which is being covered by TopGear.com.ph wordsmiths Dinzo Tabamo and Patrick Tadeo as you read this.
We have been on the lookout for the first available images of the all-new Vios for months, but have not been able to secure a single one--save for a spy photo we shared on our Facebook page last week. Fortunately, we've stumbled upon a couple of frontal shots of the car, and we're sharing them with you ahead of our official story on the much-awaited subcompact model.
And so, before we bring you a full article on the new Vios complete with a collection of multi-angle photographs, you can feast your eyes on these appetizers first. Tell us if the car's new styling pleased your taste buds.
UPDATE: Someone asked on our Facebook page why we called these photos "official" and "leaked" at the same time. By "official," we mean photos done by Toyota, as opposed to spy shots. By "leaked," we mean photos acquired from a source other than the authorized one (Toyota's Bangkok Motor Show presentation, which had not started when we wrote this story).
