Editorial Test Drive Review of Toyota Etios Liva

Mileage

The Toyota Etios Liva looks identical to its sedan sibling, the Etios, save for the absence of the boot. The Etios Liva also has a 90mm shorter wheelbase but that’s about it. Look it from the front and you can easily mistake it for its sedan cousin. The Liva, like any other Toyota offering, has high levels of reliability and even panel gaps.

The interiors of both the petrol and diesel versions are the same. Space is another plus point of the Liva and contrary to its small size on the outside, the car is very spacious on the inside. While Toyota has improved the interiors of the car overtime, there is still room for improvement in terms of design and quality of materials used for trim.

On the equipment front, you get a new 2-DIN audio with USB, Aux- In and a remote control for the unit, the driver seats comes with height adjust and combimeter with new blue illumination. Safety wise, the Etios Liva can be availed with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD.
Toyota sells the Liva in both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol Liva is powered by Toyota’s 3NR-FE engine in a 1.2-litre engine that has been tuned perfectly well for Indian driving conditions. This all new engine generates a decent 80PS of power along with an equally decent 104Nm of torque. The diesel Etios Liva comes with the same D-4D motor as found on the Altis. The maximum power output from this engine in the Liva is 68PS while peak torque stands at 170Nm.

The Liva offers you one of the best combinations of ride and handling in the Indian hatchback segment today. To start with, visibility from the driver’s seat is terrific and the steering light to operate. The Liva, being light and small, is also very flickable in traffic and maneuvering this car is an easy affair. For typical Indian bad roads, which are full of washed away patches, potholes, etc, the Liva will surprise you with the way it rides, although ride cushioning could have been better.

Toyota Etios Liva Interiors

The interiors of the Toyota Etios Liva offer plenty of space and offer a big car feel. That said, Toyota can definitely provide more cushioning to the seats. Quality of plastics and other trim material can be improved too. While top-end variants of the Etios Liva are decently equipped, it could do with some more features.
