Small cars are convenient to drive in urban environments. Why? Because they are designed to be fuel-efficient, nimble, comfortable and affordable. Toyota took the affordability aspect and made their most affordable car on the market: the playful new Toyota Vitz!

A car with a personality. The new Toyota Vitz aims to bring fun and victory into your daily activities, with a unique look, spacious interior and overall charm.

The Toyota Vitz is available in 3 variants:

  • New Toyota Vitz 1.0
  • New Toyota Vitz 1.0 XR
  • New Toyota Vitz 1.0 XR AMT

Power. Yes. Even small cars need at least a bit of power to keep you moving forward. The 49 kW. twin-injection, three-cylinder engine of the new Toyota Vitz, can harness an impressive 89 Nm of torque from an accessible 3 500 revs. This allows you to blitz to the shops, home or school as fast as possible and back!

“Shaped for success!” This is the motto used to describe the exterior of the all-new Toyota Vitz! Going for a more refined look and feel than its peers, the Vitz shows off soft-contoured lines and swept-back headlights. Teardrop rear light clusters and a distinctive chrome grille enhance the cultivated yet fun side of the new Hatchback.

A top-of-the-range model should always add something extra or contribute in a distinct way to the overall personality of its vehicle range. The Toyota Vitz XR AMT understood this and added front fog lamps, glossy smoked 15” alloys as well as colour-coded door handles and side mirrors.

Small car, big heart! The Toyota Vitz aims to give you the most favourable experience with its spacious interior and best-in-its-class 295-litre boot space. Adding to the functionality of the all-new Vitz is a 60/40 split rear seat as well as a selection of in-cabin storage spaces which comes in handy for storing small items.

On the side of convenience, the Vitz offers remote central locking, air conditioning, electric mirrors/windows and a four-speaker sound system as part of the integrated infotainment system. This innovative unit features Bluetooth and USB functionality, Apple Carplay and Android Auto for easy navigation, touchscreen activation and important vehicle data display such as fuel efficiency etc.

What is more important than feeling safe in your car? Toyota focuses extra on the safety aspect of all their vehicles. The Toyota Vitz is no outlier. To start with, the Toyota Vitz’s body is designed to enhance underbody stiffness and disperse energy more efficiently and thus, contribute to the overall collision safety of the vehicle. Spotlighting safety systems such as ABS, EBD, Vehicle Stability Control and Hill Assist Control, the Toyota Vitz really cares for your safety above all else.

The Toyota Vitz is the most affordable Toyota currently on the market with its entry-level model costing as little as R189 900 and its top-of-the-range model only R239 900.
