Published on August 15, 2013 by Joey Wang
New spy shots showing the facelifted Toyota Reiz all-naked in China. The facelifted Reiz will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in September and will be launched on the China car market in October. The facelift includes a new shiny grille, new head lights, new rear lights, and new bumpers. The facelift brings the China-made Reiz back in line with the Japan-made Reiz (aka Mark X).
The Toyota Reiz is made in China by the FAW-Toyota joint venture. Price starts at 209.800 and starts at 326.800 yuan. Engines: 193hp 2.5 V6 and 227hp 3.0 V6, both mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox sending power to the rear wheels. Both engines will continue in the facelifted Reiz and price will be about the same.
Note round pipes. Compare with:
This is apparently a new sporty version of the Reiz, featuring oval-shaped pipes. The Reiz is already a rather sporty vehicle, being rear-wheel drive and all, bit sure oval pipes make it even sportier.
