    The Vios is the “Yaris sedan” in America, Starzzguitar.

    It is obvious that Toyota is keeping all their good looking cars overseas, and selling to us here in the U.S. their ugly cars like the Camry and the Corolla. The Vios would sell very well here, along with some of the other ones I see on this website. People who are not Toyota fans are always saying why do the Toyotas suffer in the styling department compared to say, Hyundai and Kia, but I see that they CAN do a decent job, they just don’t sell those cars in America.
