The Toyota Limo is a special lower spec version of both the Toyota Vios and Toyota Corolla with lower trim levels and only offered in Southeast Asian markets designed specially for taxicab use, primarily in Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. It is a robust low cost, low maintenance variant designed specifically for taxi fleet, with longer service intervals that may be yearly or every 100,000 kilometers. It is essentially a scaled-down variant of the base model Vios/Corolla that lacks any extra equipment. It still retains the same engine of either the Vios or Corolla, but with a specially tuned ECU for more fuel efficient and economical use.
