Interior and Exterior Comparison

 

Toyota Vitz

BROWSE LOW COST USED TOYOTA VITZ MODELS

The Toyota Vitz is moderately large and alike to the Suzuki Swift in size. In the first row, the cabin is enough for people of normal height but a tall driver will find the space a bit small. In the second row, the space is practical and ideal for short urban travels.

On the outside, designing is certainly part of it. Although the Euro-chic look of the last-generation Vitz hatchback is absent, there’s more of a rally-racer, strong look in the chunkier-looking air dams, color-keyed and distinct wheel details of the sporty Vitz RS. It’s slightly more characteristic than before, perhaps, but also more universal. Inside is a step in the true direction with nice descriptions and materials plus an upfront new instrument-panel design, with the gauges directly in front of the driver.

(a) Cabin Storage

For the passenger cabin, the storage is on the door pockets and the front seat jacket pockets. For the seat configuration, thanks to the flat floor, the second-row seat could be folded down, giving more luggage space.

The cabin feels honestly roomy for a sub-compact thanks to the high roof. In the first row, the room is adequate and can accommodate tall people. In the second row, the room is ok for medium-sized people but tall people will definitely be small.
