Test drive the new Toyota Vios 1.5L CVT

  [car03 test drive]  Three years ago when I started, just the third generation of Vios just released, this is my car03 test the first car; three years later, in addition to the growth of weight, I also continue to learn and progress, To the mid-facelift. Coincidentally, I became the first person to contact it, three years time, as if the old friends meet, talk about each other's changes.

  The first generation of Vios in 2002 to the domestic market, which is FAW Toyota 's first car, Toyota is also designed specifically for the Chinese market, a car. The ad was directed by Zhang Yimou, the theme song is Pu tree singing "colorful days", I think a lot of people like me, impressed with it. Lay a good foundation, the Vios has maintained a good sales in the country, even if the small car market is not the economy now, but it can maintain a monthly average of 10,000 units sold.

  Ten years later, the market is changing, consumers are more mature, more aware of the car, in this case, Vios has two major drawbacks emerged: the whole body is not stable control system, automatic models use 4-speed gearbox. The first point is the Japanese low-end car more common problems, the second thing, of course, Toyota's 4AT in ride comfort, shift logic and engine matching maturity is better than a lot of 6AT, 7DCT, but the block Bit less lead to high engine cruising speed, listening to the same level than the models to become obsolete, have become troubled consumers. From the title of the article we should also be able to guess, the new Vios in I just said these two points have made improvements.

  5NR-FE 1.5L naturally aspirated engine, with double-valve variable timing technology, the maximum power of 107 hp; the maximum torque of 140 Nm (m), the maximum torque of 140 Nm . Transmission from the 4AT into a simulation of 8-speed CVT gearbox, from the Corolla to RAV4 Rong Fang, caused by Hyun to Vios, this gearbox has been gradually popular in Toyota's domestic models.

Driving experience

  For the Vios, or Toyota's car, there is a common feature is very easy to use, almost no adaptation process, throttle, steering are relatively light, power output smoothly, both young and old can easily control, basically the ignition Car will be able to go. To say less than the steering wheel can not be adjusted before and after the sitting in a bit awkward, the appropriate distance from the legs, arms have to be straight, in addition to all OK.

  107 hp engine and the same level of Fit, POLO compared to no advantage, good day-to-day driving when the difference is not large, light throttle settings do not jump for urban transport, 80km / h no problem, speed and then Fast, then, under the foot must have a point of hard. High-speed engine noise when the problem still exists, but this level of the basic car are like this, an acceleration on the buzzing.

  In fact, I was very satisfied with the performance of the previous 4AT gearbox, enough smooth enough smart, and engine matching is also mature, if not say it is difficult to detect it only four gears. But now with the level of the CVT and 6AT occupy a dominant position, and then stubbornly stick to 4AT, is tantamount to self-destruct future, combined with market conditions and technological upgrades, Vios also put on the analog 8-speed CVT gearbox.

  This gearbox through the electronic control system can simulate the AT gearbox, deep step after the throttle there is a "downshift" action, followed by the engine speed is rising, the reaction speed is very fast, ride is not to worry, after all, this is Physical structure of the decision. Just a little let me not satisfied, low speed, such as traffic jams, the release of the throttle will be a little frustrated after, just like the manual transmission oil from the co-ordination is not in place lead to the phenomenon of setbacks, the rest are good.

  From left to right to play more than three rounds of steering wheel steering accuracy has always been more vague, which is also in line with the positioning of Vios, do not always tight nerves, easy to release on the line. Suspension tuning is not blindly in pursuit of soft, a little toughness, pressure over the potholes when there will be some feeling passed to the car, but for comfort is not much impact. The facelift of the new Vios all the Department have increased the ESC, usually less useful, but in the event of an emergency situation is a life-saving thing. Links around a simple experience a bit, the work is very active, intense driving can clearly feel the braking effect, the consumer is a good thing.

2 Small changes in appearance

    After watching the dynamic performance Let us look at the static, the new Vios main changes in the appearance details, interior changes little, we need to note that we are shooting this car is test equipment, dynamic aspects have been finalized, the assembly may And production car there is little difference, please understand.

  I am more satisfied with the design of the front of the new Vios, looking at the spirit of a lot, after all, the old section of the mouth design always makes people feel a bit dejected look. Top models with LED lamp eyebrows, daytime running lights and lenses, but these things are only top with only the rest of the models can not see. As for only three models with high fog lamps before the phenomenon of the new Vios still has not changed, the low-end car control costs can understand the practice, but for the whole department to take the amount of low with models, if the re-out Sincerity is even better.

  The changes on the interior are minimal, even negligible. Space has always been the strengths of the Vios, the new Vios in this regard and the performance of the old Vios is no different for home users, nothing to be critical, very good.

● Full text summary

Now more and more around the purchase of many consumers holding "hard to buy a car, whatever the outcome, I also add some money to buy big points," this mentality, so compact cars continue to erode the small car market, In this case, although the Vios can not and POLO ratio, but the monthly average of 10,000 results are quite good, to have such sales rely on is the lowest price, space, and reliable. The new Vios on this basis will be replaced by 4AT CVT, the whole system comes standard with ESC, very targeted to get rid of the previous two "illnesses", so that their competitiveness has been further enhanced, whether for themselves or consumers , Is a love of good news.
