The first generation Vios, codenamed XP40, was assembled in Thailand’s Toyota Gateway Plant in Gateway City, Amphoe Plaeng Yao, Chachoengsao Province, as part of a cooperative project between Thai engineers and Toyota’s Japanese designers.
In Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, and Taiwan markets, the first generation Vios is equipped with a 1.5 L with VVT-i. The smaller 1.3 L engine is offered in the Philippines. In China, the Vios comes with the 1.3 L and 1.5 L . Trim levels for Southeast Asian markets include J, E, S, and G, while the DLX, GL, GLX, and GLXi are offered in China.
The first generation Vios was adapted from the Platz with modified body panels and portions of the car feature design cues from the E120 Corolla. Like the Vitz and Platz, the Vios features instrument panel mounted on the top center of the dashboard.
In September 2005, the Vios received minor cosmetic changes to its exterior and interior for the 2006 model year. Updates included the front bumper, headlights and tail lights, redesigned alloy rims, speedometer dial design, and added a console box in the interior.
The first generation Vios was campaigned in the Touring Car Championships in Indonesia and One Make Races in Thailand.
Taxicab versions marketed in Indonesia have less equipment and is rebadged as the Limo. This is not to be confused with certain taxis with the same name in Thailand, which use Corollas.
In China, the Vios was produced from 2004 to 2008 equipped with the 1.3 L 8A-FE and 1.5 L 5A-FE engines paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The 5A-FE engine was replaced by the engine and engine in 2006. Trim levels consist of the DLX, GL, GLX, and GLXi trims.

And the 1.5 G is the top-of-the-line model, included a 1NZ-FE VVT-i engine, and available with either a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission.
In Singapore, the Vios came in E and S variants and powered by a 1.5 L 1NZ-FE engine. The top-of-the-line S comes with only a four-speed automatic transmission. It has a digital speedometer, foldable wing mirrors, foglamps, chrome door handles and boot lid garnish. The E version was available in both 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions and has a conventional speedometer.
In Malaysia, the specs and engines are generally similar as Singapore, the only difference is that in Malaysia it is sold in E and G variants and comes with 15-inch alloy wheels and mudguards while Singapore versions do not.
In Taiwan, the Vios comes with a 1.5 L 1NZ-FE engine in E and J versions. The first generation Vios was sold and produced until the first quarter 2014.
A «Turbo» variant of the first generation Vios was made available only in Thailand. A turbocharged 1.5 L engine with an air-to-air intercooler produces 143 PS (105 kW; 141 hp) with light boost at 6,400 rpm with 196 N⋅m (145 lb⋅ft) of torque. It can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.1 seconds. About 600 units were produced. Standard on the Vios Turbo are a functional scoop on its hood, wrap-around body kits, stiffer springs, firmer shock-absorbers and 16-inch alloy wheels. Colours available were red, black, and silver. The transmission ratio and differential ratios were based on that of a MR-S.
