Toyota launched its first Etios in the Indian car market in the year 2010. Etios is the first budget offering from the manufacturer. The company has been providing the Etios sedan updates every now and then but its 2016 updates have numerous changes including the mechanicals as well. In a bid to combat increasing competition in the sub-four meter sedan segment day by day, Toyota has enhanced the overall appearance of the vehicle and now christened it as ‘Platinum Etios’. The front façade of the car has been changed a lot and along with various cosmetic changes, it also gets mechanical updates for better performance and enhanced ride quality.
Talking about the outer appearance, the overall looks of the Etios has been changed. The 2016 Toyota Etios facelift carries the same body shell as the outgoing model but the changes are evident. The company has really worked towards making the car superior and we can say that by looking at the stylish updates. Talking about the changes, Toyota Etios gets new V-shaped radiator grille that features black inserts and chrome detailing. Front bumper too has been redesigned while the front flaunts larger air-intake and revised housing for the fog lamps.
Coming on to the side profile, it largely remains unchanged save some minor tweaks. The rear part also gets a minimal nip and tuck with revised tail lamps and reworked bumper. Electrically retractable ORVMs and new alloy wheels are standard on all the top of the line variants. Toyota Etios is available in different colour pallets such as Vermilion Red, Celestial Black, Harmony Beige, Pearl White with Crystal Shine, White, Classic Grey and Silver Mica Metallic.
Interior is the part where we can witness majority of changes, Etios inner profile have been revamped to make it look premium. The layout of dashboard remains the same but the centrally placed instrument cluster gets digital treatment for the tachometer. The seats are also worked upon and it now offers more comfort to the occupants and is also wrapped in new upholstery. Other aspects include 2-DIN music system with Bluetooth and USB, electrically operated wing mirrors, steering mounted audio controls, Air conditioner, keyless entry, cooled glove box, height adjustable driver seat, foldable rear seat, rear parking sensor, rear seat armrest and power outlets 12V.
Toyota Etios continues to be powered by the same 1.5L petrol and 1.4L diesel mills. The 1.5L petrol engine is capable of generating the power output of 88bhp and peak torque of 132Nm. On the other hand, its 1.4L diesel powertrain can churn the output of 67bhp and belts out the maximum torque of 170Nm. Both the engines come mated to 5-speed manual transmission. Toyota has worked on the engines to control the noise seeping in the cabin, in other words, its NVH has been improved.
As per the safety, Toyota Etios has scored a high four-star rating in the NCAP test. It’s one of the most reliable cars when it comes to safety. Among various safety aspects, dual airbags and ABS are standard across the range. Other features are central locking, EBD, engine immobiliser, child safety lock and power door lock.
Currently, Toyota Platinum Etios is available in three different variants such as GX, V and VX. Its base trim GX is available at the price tag of Rs. 6.8 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 7.9 lakh for the diesel variant. The mid-range model V is tagged at Rs. 7.09 lakh and Rs. 8.19 lakh for the petrol and diesel trims respectively. The range-topping VX variant is offered at the price tag of Rs. 7.69 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 8.79 lakh for the diesel trim, all priced ex-showroom, Delhi.
Earlier, the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Ciaz were making it difficult for Etios to stay in the competition. Now, with all the shuffling happening in various segments all these years, Etios now falls in the price category of under 4-meter cars such as Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze and Hyundai Xcent.


The interiors of the new Etios are undoubtedly a notch above the outgoing one. The earlier version was unusually equipped with instrument binnacle placed on the top of the centre console. It was annoying for many people as they cannot see the information without road distraction. Though the new one also gets the same unit, they now feature semi-digital combi-meter display for the convenience of the driver. The car gets new black-ivory colour scheme while the styling of the rest of the dashboard remains identical to the outgoing version. The large windows and the beige upholstery inside makes the cabin looks bigger and roomier.
The sedan is a proper 5-seater and the legroom is amongst the best you can have under Rs. 10 lakh car. The seats are large and comfortable while one will also notice the alteration in the texture of the seat fabric. However, the use of rough plastic, especially the bottom of the dashboard seems to be really out of place. The carmaker has added a central armrest for more comfort. But, the addition of features such as automatic climate control, multi-information display and rear ac vents would have really boosted its image among the class.
Among the plus points of the car, ingress and outgress is amazing while the height adjust functionality and tilt-adjustable steering making the driving position more comfortable. The storage space is also abundant with plenty of cubby holes and bottle holders across the cabin. The infotainment system is still limited to the 2-Din audio system with Bluetooth and USB which is again a disadvantage given the budget cars are also coming up with touchscreen units.


Compared to the outgoing model, the new Toyota Etios Platinum do pose an appealing stance. Updates can be seen at the front with the new wider bumper and revised grille to give a touch of sportiness. The carmaker hasn’t gone extreme when it comes to using chrome appliques. The use of carbon-fibre texture, in fact, looks really nice on the front bumper. The v-shaped grille is mounted high with black inserts and the chrome studded signature mark at the centre looks cool. The rounded fog lamps now get boomerang styled highlighted enclosure.
The side profile of Etios largely remains intact except the new set of alloys and the same thick protruding strip running in the middle. The rear end of the car feature new bumper and thick chrome slat with red reflectors on the boot lid connecting the two tail lamps. Overall, the changes are subtle but do provide a bit of youthful touch to the car.

Mileage Running Cost

As mechanically Etios remain untouched, the fuel efficiency is also the same. Where the diesel engine returns ARAI certified mileage of 23.59kmpl, the petrol engine, on the other hand, returns 16.78kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

The company claims that it has worked upon the shock absorbers. While the ride quality is undoubtedly very good but isn’t different as compared to the earlier version. However, as the suspension has been tuned, one can expect a slight slandering into the corners.
The car never feels less composed and remains stable regardless of the road conditions. The steering also feels nice and comfortable to operate.

Engine Performance

The car gets the same set of petrol and diesel engines with minute tweaks. The 1.5L 4-cylinder petrol motor with electronic fuel injection produces 90PS and 132Nm of torque, mated to 5-speed manual transmission. The engine offers excellent drivability in cities but somehow run out of breath on the freeways.
The diesel engine is the 1.4L 4-cylinder CRDi unit that pumps out 68PS and 170Nm of max torque, paired to 5-speed manual gearbox. Toyota claims that the NVH levels of the engine have been improved. The powertrain behaves practically allowing you to move on high speeds effortlessly.

Braking Safety

The performance of ABS+EBD brakes is confident and performs just as expected. One of the biggest talking points of the car in this version is the updates in the safety department. The sedan now comes equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX mounts, keyless entry and driver seat belt warning as standard features.
Move on to the top variants and you also get front fog lamps and reverse parking sensors. The carmaker has also reinforced the chassis so that it could perform better in case of crash. And this can be seen in the fact that Etios got 4-star safety rating in Global NCAP crash test.

    Every penny you spend to buy this car is worth. And the main part is the maintenance cost, no other car can be compared to its cost of maintenance.
