The Toyota Vios (Japanese: トヨタ ・ヴィオス Toyota Viosu) is a four-door subcompact sedan produced by the Japanese manufacturer Toyota, primarily for emerging markets in the Asia-Pacific region.
Introduced in 2002, the Vios serves as the replacement to the Tercel (marketed as Soluna in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore), which filled the Asian subcompact or B-segment class, below the Corolla and Camry that are also sold in the region. Beginning in 2005, the Vios was also marketed alongside its hatchback complement, the Yaris in most Asia-Pacific countries. The second generation Vios is known as the Belta in Japan and Yaris sedan in the United States, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, the Middle East and Australia.
The “Vios” name is derived from the Latin word “vio”, meaning “to move forward”
