Toyota Vios 1.3


Me and my katukayo were talking about cars last night since he was almost convinced to buy a brand new 2.0 sedan. What kept him off from buying the car is his first love – a red 1997 Mitsu Lancer. My friend then asked me what will I buy if I’m in his shoes, and I said with that budget I’ll go for 2006 Toyota Vios 1.3 J. First reason is because it’s 300K cheaper and 2nd reason is because of its efficiency. With the fuel prices going up evey month you’ll definitely look for a 1.3 sedan. I also told him that two of my officemates sold there cars just to get a Toyota Vios 1.3 for one primary reason – Fuel Efficiency. A Manual transmission Vios 1.3 is boosting a 22.16km per liter that’s why it was awarded as “Most Fuel-Efficient Car in the Philippines” by the Department of Energy.
