Toyota Upgrades Vitz With 1.5 Litre Hybrid Engine Replacing the Popular Aqua
7 days ago
Back in 2003, when Vitz hit the market, it instantly clicked the market. In that time, import of cars was not very common. Vitz 1.0 was one the first cars to be imported.
Its premium quality impressed its users a lot. They considered it to be one of the best options available in the 1000cc class. After seeing the success and popularity of the car, Toyota has decided to upgrade Vitz to 1.5 hybrid synergy.
This new version is a huge step up from its former model. The manufacturing of Aqua, which is Toyota’s smaller hybrid Prius, will also be discontinued and Vitz will be taking its place.
The Best of Two Worlds
The new Vitz is a combination of Vitz 1.0 and Toyota Aqua 1.5.
Hybrid F2, Jewela2, U2, and Sports Package are the four packages the vehicle will be available in. A new range of colors will also be introduced along with the existing ones. The car will be available in Barrel brown and Avant-Garde Bronze metallic, along with 17 other colors.
The Game Plan
With this revamped new car, Toyota hopes to deal with its declining sales of Vitz 1.0.
The reason for the decline was the availability of Aqua with better specifications and a very minimal price range difference. Another reason was that Passo, with a lower budget, was also available in the 1000cc range. But this new vehicle will completely change the game for Vitz.
The Hot New Design
The new design has a class of its own. The sleek new design has a dominating aura to it. In addition to that, the power efficiency has been increased by adding an electric motor.
The front of the car has a little upgrade from its previous model but the back of the car is completely renewed. To an extent, the lights resemble those of Honda Vezel. The fuel consumption has also been increased to 34.4km/L.
Many critics believe that with the new design and features, the car will be a huge hit just like its predecessor. Toyota is hoping that it will give a healthy competition to its competitors along with satisfying its customers.
