Toyota's Vios gets the "Limited Edition" treatment...


..with the recent release of the Vios XX "Limited Edition" model to celebrate Toyota Philippines' 20th anniversary in the country. As further proof of the car's "exclusivity," only 800 units will be made available to the public and shall be sold only until the end of this year, sort of like Toyota's "Last Quarter Storm."


To differentiate the Vios XX from the run-of-mill models in the street, be on the lookout for the ones that have HID headlamps, turn signal light-equipped mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler marked with the 20th Anniversary XX "limited edition" badge. As for the interior, the Vios XX's audio system gets upgraded with a premium six-speaker set-up with an amplifier as well as an iPod interface. And of course, to make things really special, only the Vios XX gets the special Cosmo Red shade (although the standard Grayish Blue Metallic and Medium Silver Metallic colors are still available) as well as an exclusive keychain that only comes with the Vios XX - the perfect accessory to twirl around your finger to "absent-mindedly" show off that you have a special "limited edition" ride.



The Vios XX can be had with a standard automatic transmission for P785,000 while the one with the manual gearbox is available for P750,000.



Now, for a model that's just a year old, setting aside the occasion of Toyota Philippines' 20th anniversary, it got me thinking; why launch a limited edition series roughly just after a year of the model's launch. Hmmm....

And then I found this...
