Hi all,

I have decided to own a Toyota Vios (don bash me because not go for Honda City). At first i was thinking that J grade will be best suit for me since its cheaper and mostly because with the black interior. However, since i was decided to opt for the AT, E grade came to consideration too. The problem is E grade interior only came with beige colour but with airbag (at least) and some minor feature (which also keep bugging to reconsider). Please help me and let me know which one will be better? Thanks. sad.gif sad.gif

It would help if you list the price difference between the J and E spec... cos your question is should you spend the extra money or not right?

Apart from the beige colored interior of the E, the price difference you're paying is for the better looking HU, fog lamps, kinda ugly 14" alloy rims, motorized and retractable side mirrors with the strip indicator and most importantly the 1 drivers airbag. But if I were you, I would take the E-spec if budget permits coz of the additional drivers airbag and motorized and retractable side mirrors with strip indicator. These 2 items cannot be modded into the car later if you really want to have it. Maybe come OEM company will produce the motorized retractable side mirrors soon. Only time will tell. Just my opinion.

my family own vios G since last year June, regarding the beige interior i don't think it is hard to maintain, moreover with black colour you can see dust easily if seldom wipe especially the dashboard!

J = super empty spec - come with Manual
E = empty spec with airbag

like proton car always come with B-line, M-line and H-line. so J is just the base model while E is the Medium line. G is High Line and S is the Super High line lor... brows.gif

Correction:
J - ABS/EBD, 1DIN CD player, black interior, steel rim with cover.

d CD player is lousy even G,S spec, just get ur own ICE, J-dashboard can be easily replace ICE compared to other variant.

For safety feature, J n E both come with ABS, EBD, BA, COA body, but w/o VST (G n S got)... E n J only 1 driver air-bag diff..

D sport rim, E spec 14" is very ugly, but is recommended to change to 15" alloy rim...

Fog light for J now selling 300-350....

trunk spoiler definitely can add. fog light can be installed either, RIM can be changed also.

so between J and E, now basiccally u juz need to consider, ur budget(72k/79k), interior black(J) or beige(E), and wan air bag(E) or no air bag(J).

i would go for J version manual. autoboxes are just sluggish cause they do not have lockup.

as for the mirror electric fold or adjustment its not really a must have. how many times are you gonna adjust the mirror? as for the fold i do not see such a big fuss to manually fold it after you parked.

fog lights can be added for fraction of the price toyota charges for it. the steel rims maybe ugly..u can use the balance from E to get a light weight 15.

the black interior looks more classy to be honest.

but i still wont buy a vios or city cause its over priced...still even for manual at 69k. NVH is very bad. Engine noise very loud inside.

Non foldable rear seats is also something i dun understand why toyota had to remove for base models. its very useful when carrying things.

dats y when i had to replace my 4.5 yr old waja due to an idiot crashed into me i got a new waja CPS. Cheaper has better trim level and drives much better. No quality issues so far with my last waja or the new one

really with 50RM different, just go for the higher spec. i heard the J spec is all tin and nothing inside. outside yes u got vios clamshell, but inside is like...worse than a waja?

i got the same dilemma while choosing my NHC, but whaddaheck, i went for the top specced. because my argument is 50RM more is something i can afford and truth to be told, the 'more' i got in the NHC top specced totally justified the additional monthly payment.

What la you all, J or E, if I were you take J la, change HU and rim and bodykit. whole car nice nice. single air bag? what if you driving fast and your passenger no air bag? make no sense, if buy toyota vios don't drive so fast, drive slow and safe can already laugh.gif

Vios J is for low budget people and that spec well served them, if those with budget get vios E, G or S, or NHC, I suggest go take a look at peugeot 308. The whole car so nice with futuristic look and won't get old so fast. Safety, sound prove, car features, 1.6cc, nice sport rim, full airbags. no need spend money modifying also already cun. wink.gif

i agree vios is over priced even for J-spec...
but honda city with similar body, performances but need to pay extra 15-20k is really sxxks....

i own a Vios n Saga BLM.... to me both car are similar.... just diff when u press d pedal from initial to moving...and when u press d brake from moving to stop, d diff cost u (70-40k) 30k...

conclusion: why we buy a toyota or honda?
1) becoz we nvr trust proton, d QA, QC and d maintenance services...
2) we wana let ppl know or just wana let ourselves know we can own a non local brand car.... after working for ppl like a slave, u wana treat urself slightly better when u drive to work or drive back home...thats it blush.gif

if u can afford E and feel that is worth for those accessories, just go for it... treat urself nicer~ rclxms.gif

Better take E over J, 1 airbag better than none.

If you do buy J, don't peel off the J label and stick a spoiler and try to imitate an S variant then end up with 4 brake lights. It sucks.

Ya, still comparing Vios J, E, and NHC S. But NHC S is overprice which almost come close to Vios G but i personally think Vios G have more gadget then NHC S spec. I heard 80% people complaining the vios exterior design sucks but for me.... Front seem nice and only rear side abit weird coz the brake lamp too small gua. But after i review the exterior few times, i start to accept the design and love it too.

So far, i can afford max to Vios G or NHC S spec. No point to own a NHC S spec since NHC E come with full gadget only with 5k more. Therefore, NHC is not within my range and for me, the NHC design doesnt seem tht really good as claimed. (Personal opinion, please don bash me). Haiz... if NHC got new spec just in between E and S or NHC E with better gadget just like Vios G then i can save some time to decide. hehehe.

J variant is WITHOUT airbag leh...u sure abt driver only airbag? my Vios J is coming next week, i don't think it has an airbag...

btw, those rims, cd players r changeable, n i don think it costs me 10k+ i can get more than a good amps n woofers with that amount, even 5 zigen rims n continental tyres wouldnt cost me that...

i love the black interior but its only available in J n S, difference is 15k O.O

too much for me...all i want from toyota is its handling n safety features...ABS, EBD n BA are all equipped...its good enuf for me, moreover i seldom see accidents with airbags exploded...

I'm driving E spec, I think you should go for E spec too. Airbag is really important, few thousand RM more may save ur life. For me, i regret taking E spec, i should have gone for G spec for dual airbags, for my family.

vios e fort the win, got driver airbag...
and the foglamps could be useful sometimes too...
and also got little little defferences like alloy rims which can make the car ligjhter, can automatically adjust the side mirrors and can fold the backseat...all this vios J dont have.

but then again, vios J got manual which is always fun to drive for me...too bad the car is too basic:(

not if u get toyota financing, they can give u good interest rate. i got mine 2.3% for 7 years. me also vios E. the car will arrive july:)

but if can afford more, i rccomend latio...awesome car (looks like shit though...must put on impul kit then tolerable:P)

you have to take the delivery date into account... minimum 2 months from the date printed at your booking form...
maximum up to 3 months or so... look how good is the branch that you do booking...

go for S type ba, no need feel headache & spend time for bla bla modification later on.

one thing should remember, if the different for each month installation is not much, try to take highest spec, no regret in future as money can be earned back in yr continue life.

Go for J-Spec. RM 6k+ is overpriced for the 2-din cd player, alloy sport rim and single airbag.

Spend the RM 6k on :-
- Cd player
- Sport rims + Tyre
- Soundproof (Run over cat also cannot hear it scream)
- Stabilizer

If want more safety. Consider european car. If vios still your choice, learn to use seat belt and don't rely on airbag.

Don't watch your girlfriend die beside you because got single airbag only. LOL

CT more better because back seat can decline a bit to backward. this design very good by shift 2 speakers to the rear door side, this also can avoid sunlight direct to the speakers. notworthy.gif
