But, which one is the car for you? Let’s compare all we know about the Toyota Vitz and Toyota Aqua.

EXTERIOR

Toyota Vitz

Toyota Vitz has always been dynamic and in demand for its gorgeous shape and beautiful exterior styling. The 2017 Vitz is to be Euro-inspired, with sleek styling and an oversized black grille. The 16-inch machined alloy wheels, integrated fog lights rear spoiler and Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature a catchy accent.

Toyota Aqua

Toyota Aqua is like stretched version of Vitz as it is slightly longer, but it does have distinctive Toyota styling. It features a bulging front bumper, fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, wide front with black grilles at top and bottom, and massive cuts and edges. Big lights in the rear and slanting roofline has covered up almost half the rear fenders.

Though Aqua has trademark Toyota design and bigger in size but Vitz has a more exquisite exterior to appeal drivers.

INTERIOR

Toyota Vitz

Vitz 2017 has enough room inside it to offer to its passengers. There is an extra touch of class with piano black trims and white stitching on the seats. From inside it has a sporty look with the leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshift surrounding.The 5-door hatchback is offering 15.6

The 5-door hatchback is offering 15.6 cubic ft. cargo space in the backyard storage. 60/40 split fold-down rear seat changes your idea of the subcompact. Entertainment is within in your reach with features like Bluetooth hands-free music streaming, HD Radio; steering wheel mounted audio control, USB aux and more.

5-door Toyota Aqua is a driver-centric car and fairly simple from inside including dashboard and cluster panel which is all digital. The build quality inside including seating and dashboard material is not what one can expect from its exterior look.

However, it has power lock doors, keyless entry and steering adjustment capacity. The entertainment aspect is good enough with the multimedia system integrated with the panel. Overall, the extra room which it offers to the driver boot squeezes the space for rear passengers.

As a whole, Vitz is way ahead in providing comfort and everything classy inside the car to the users.

Toyota Aqua gives 2W drive and also runs on with automatic transmission. Being a driver-centric, hybrid car, it performs fairly well in this area.The driving position is quite nice and feels like everything revolves around him. However, the suspension is average still, it is good for normal city driving.

Both these cars are not manufactured in Pakistan and imported in the country. Toyota Vitz Price ranges PKR 1,700,000 to PKR 1,800,000 whereas Toyota Aqua is priced nearly 2.5 million PKR, which is quite high!
