sgCarMart–The place of origin has profound effects on the image of a product. Yes, we may be accustomed to goods from the People's Republic (of China), but still our perception will change without a moment's notice when met with a 'Swiss made' tag.
Toyota is one of the first few car brands that forayed onto foreign grounds (outside Japan) to have their cars made. For a good part of our memory, the Vios and Altis (which replaced Corolla here) rolled out of their plants in Thailand.
While it is safe to say the locals are biting the Tom Yam-flavoured baits - just by looking at the sheer number of Vios(es) and Altis(es) on our roads - Toyota isn't going to take things for granted.
Be in for a surprise - the new Yaris is now built in France.
