Side View of Toyota Etios

The Etios has been a decent success for Toyota but now with the likes of the Chevrolet Sail and the soon-to-be-launched Honda Amaze, the Etios is facing a big threat. The new Etios launched will take care of that. The new Etios has a redesigned grille with chrome finish, rear combination lamps plus new indicators on side view mirrors. There is also a new colour called classic grey. The front for example has the huge ‘smile’ grille and clear lens headlamps. The running side spoiler, clean side lines and the running chrome lip on the boot go a long way in adding flair to the design. The interiors on the other hand are truly one of the strongest selling points of the Etios. When it comes to changes there is a two tone look with a textured dashboard, soft fabric and ash brown colour. Features wise you get a new 2 Din audio with Bluetooth, USB, Aux- In and remote, driver seats comes with height adjust, combimeter with new blue illumination and new AC control panel with clean air filters. The interiors are, without a doubt, the most practical and spacious of the lot in this price range and make the car feel like a much bigger segment vehicle on several occasions. The Etios can seat five adults in utter comfort while keeping all their individuals bottles in addition to two more, at a handy distance. Further it gets a huge 13-litre glovebox to keep more bottles chilled. The Etios is now powered by two engine options. The petrol is the best in class 1.5-litre unit which is basically Toyota’s 2NR-FE unit but does without the VVTi technology to keep costs low. It not only puts out a very healthy 90PS of power, but at the same time, the car being as light as a premium hatchback means it’s power to weight ratio is better than the competition. The company also claims an ARAI fuel efficiency figure of 17.6kmpl which is astonishing for a car of this class and with an engine so potent. However the one that will be selling like hot cakes is the new diesel version that comes with the same D-4D motor as found on the Altis though in the Etios, to cut costs, it does away with the variable geometry turbo and has a fixed one instead. The maximum power is 68PS while the peak torque stands at 170Nm. It also has a fantastic ARAI rated fuel economy of 23.59kmpl which means you will easy get around 17-18kmpl in real world conditions. Both the petrol and diesel engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The suspension set-up is on the softer side to ensure a better ride and comfort factor for the Indian families than for hitting the twisties on weekends. The car responds sharply to the driver’s inputs and its ability to zip through traffic is remarkable. It would be safe to say that overall drive dynamics and vehicle behaviour are neutral. The diesel line up will now have the newly introduced J variant and prices now start at Rs 5.45 to 7.08 lakhs for the petrol to Rs 6.7 to Rs 8.15 lakhs for the diesel. For a detailed analysis read below...

Pros: Space, Efficiency
Cons: Bland styling, Diesel (performance)

Good car but interior not good
By Posted on Apr,04,14 12:09 PM

Pros Good Performance,

Cons Average Interiors,

I am not happy with interior quality of the car. It has poor quality and overall I am unhappy with it. It looks cheap. Car has good performance. Service is very good from Toyota but when paying so much for sedan i think company should give quality interior. After 2 year use it become dull and has a smell in the cabin after i park in the hot sun during summer. Can you please help me in solving this problem. How to get Toyota to give better interior quality. Otherwise comfort is very good on bad roads and mileage is also fine.

Etios Diesel affordable luxury
Posted on Sep,09,20 9:45 AM

Pros Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,

An affordable sedan which is a quiet performer, still not reached its potential. In spite of the simple looks it is a great car to drive under all conditions. The space inside the cabin & the large boot can accommodate a family for a leisurely holiday without pinching the pocket due to its great fuel efficiency. This car can keep you satisfied in cities as well as cross country-a must drive sedan

STLYE AND LOOKS
By Posted on Oct,10,14 11:39 AM

Pros Good Performance,Great Interiors,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons Average Looks,

THE TOYOTA ETIOS DOES NOT HAVE AN APPEALING LOOK. IT IS AS IF THE CAR IS DESIGNED INTERIOR WISE AND EXTERIORS WERE TOTALLY IGNORED AND WAS SOMEHOW DESIGNED COMPLETED IN A HURRY TO MEET A DEADLINE. THE FRONT GROUND CLEARANCES ARE LOW AND EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A VERY GOOD CAR TO DRIVE AND EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH CAPACITY BOOT SPACE, I WOULD NOT BUY IT JUST BECAUSE IT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD, SOMETHING LIKE THE LAST GEN HONDA CITY. BASIC DESIGN COULD HAVE BEEN BORROWED FROM THE COROLLA ALTIS OR FROM THE LATEST INNOVA (FOR LIVA).
