Toyota Motor Corporation unveiled its all-new Vios FS to the Chinese market at the 2016 Auto Guangzhou, which was held in late November.
The Vios is Toyotaâ€™s four-door compact sedan for the Asian market. The current model was introduced in April 2013 at the 2013 Auto Shanghai.
Since the end of 2013, the Vios has been locally produced and sold in China by Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor, a joint venture in China between Toyota and China FAW Group Corporation. With a tax incentive for compact vehicles of less than 1.6 liters implemented in 2016, sales of the Vios have been successful thus far.
The recently unveiled Vios FS is a variant of the Vios series. This five-door hatchback has been added to the Vios lineup, which only consisted of four-door sedans till now.
Sichuan FAW Toyota Motor established this hatchback to target young Chinese consumers who were born in or after the 1990s.
