Users choose Veloz because the family has used many Toyota cars – Graphics: MYSTERIOUS

About 5 days after Toyota Veloz launched to Vietnamese users, Mr. Duong Phong – owner of a restaurant and travel service business in Da Nang decided to down the deposit. Even then, Veloz’s price was not low compared to the manufacturer’s announcement.

“My family used to use many different types of cars because they specialize in tourism services and provide contract cars. Models like Vios, Corolla Altis, Fortuner or Hiace, I have all used. However, buying a car just to serve the family is not yet. Choose Veloz partly because it can carry many people, partly because of the Toyota brand,” Phong said.

The young businessman is also a speed enthusiast, loves sports cars, including motorcycles. Therefore, Honda Civic also caught the eye of Phong in the price range of 700-750 million VND. However, family comes first, so personal interests are put aside.

Received the car in April, after more than 2 months of use, Phong feels satisfied with the money spent. The Veloz has run more than 10,000 km, helping restaurant owners in Da Nang somewhat feel the strengths and weaknesses.

“The driving feeling of Veloz is good for the price range. However, the engine is a bit sluggish when running at full load on the pass or when it is necessary to overtake the car, “said Phong. In more than 10,000 km, this young businessman has conquered passes such as Hai Van (Da Nang – Hue) or Bao Loc (Lam Dong).

With a 1.5 liter engine, the requirement for smooth acceleration is too demanding, especially when going on steep passes. Veloz uses a 1.5L gasoline engine, 4 cylinders in line, with a capacity of 105 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 138 Nm at 4,200 rpm.

In addition to the engine weakness when traveling on a fully loaded pass, users also appreciate the thin tires, especially the two upper doors. “If Toyota has improvements to the bodywork to make the car more solid and stable, even better. At the same time, the car’s engine can be further improved, which will be great,” said Phong.

In return, Toyota’s MPV is highly appreciated in equipment. According to car owners, Toyota has changed a lot in terms of product philosophy in recent years, no longer as conservative and rigid as before. In the MPV segment with a price of 700 million VND, Veloz has many superior equipment compared to competitors. “The equipment according to the car is completely acceptable in the price range,” Phong said.

Veloz is currently priced from 648 million VND.
