Overall, the VX variant seems like a very well-rounded and value-for-money variant. It covers all the basics and also gives some added features. In hindsight, the only difference between the ZX and the ZX(O) variants is the ADAS features. For anyone who doesn’t want ADAS, but seeks all the luxury, the ZX variant is a perfect choice, especially for people who will be spending more time in the back seat. 

The G-SLF and the GX variants are available only with the petrol engine. And the VX, ZX, and ZX(O) variants are only available with the strong hybrid model.

  1. Petrol GLX does not come witj 17 in. and 18 in. Alloy wheels.
    Why ?
    Can it be fitted by replacing it by buyer or is it not possible.
    If possible what are the pros and cons ?

  2. There is no mention of Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) in any of the official communication from Toyota. How are you confirming the presence of AEB in the ZX(O)?
