Compact SUVs and Crossover have gained popularity over the last couple of years. Toyota Brazil has decided to join in the game and has launched the Toyota Etios Crossover in Brazil. The new Etios Cross is not very different over the hatchback.



Toyota has given it the same underpinnings as the Etios Liva hatchback. The difference is that the Etios Cross comes with the a raised suspension which gives it higher ground clearance, but also raises its centre of gravity. In addition to the raised suspension it brings roof rails that can carry luggage of upto 50 kilos in weight.



The exterior receives a facelift with muscular wheel arches, courtesy of plastic moulds added onto the vehicle it gets a sportier look. The bumper has been given a facelift, it now brings a silver skid guard as well. This gives the front end a more aggressive look. It receives the ‘Etios Cross’ badging on the boot lid and diamond cut alloy wheels to add to the transformation from a hatchback to a crossover.

The interior has been revised slightly and the Etios Cross brings new seat fabrics and trim.  However, the engine remains the same as the standard Etios. It brings a 1.5 litre petrol engine that makes 96 Bhp of power, and 139 Nm of torque and it comes with a 5 speed manual gear box.

The price for the Etios Cross in Brazilian Real is 45,690 which converts to around ₹12.35 lakh. Although the Etios Cross looks appealing the price certainly is not! The Etios Cross looks bigger and slightly wider owing to its raised suspension and flared wheel arches. However, if priced correctly in India it could result in decent sales, the looks of a small-SUV, rugged and fuss-free ownership along with excellent after sales back up from Toyota may ensure success for this vehicle if launched in India.
