It was interesting to read old posts from this thread :-). So few years later, we know that Axio has nothing to do with Vios :-)
facelift has arrived with new 1.5l NR-FKE engine that brings VVT-iE and atkinson cycle as well as 15% improvement in efficiency.. .its got new safety system standard on all but base model and it also has optional bi-led lights which look good for this crappy/cheap car. Interior is largely the same, i think hybrid got nicer instruments and few nicer plastics overall.
Both versions look nicer, but Wagon is kind of nice where sedan still ugly, just less so.
I think only Japanese bring base spec cars to unveil, half of the pics were of base model with hubcaps.
