Toyota Etios Liva is the only hatchback from the Japanese carmaker in the B segment space in Indian automotive scene. This is the segment which is closely guarded by Maruti and Hyundai and they claim that this niche is their turf. For cars such as Etios Liva, it is like survival of the fittest. Looking at the same, the manufacturer has recently introduced the facelifted version which is the fourth in the lifecycle of the vehicle. The new generation Toyota Etios Liva is a whole new package along with the best in class safety aspects. The car receives a lot of cosmetic updates as well as plenty of detailing inside for better experience. The updated Toyota Etios Liva gets stylish looks, better fuel efficiency, high quality interiors and enhanced performance.
On the outside, Toyota Etios Liva comes with cosmetic updates that make the hatchback look all the more appealing. The front façade of the Liva hatch has been tweaked, the car gets new bumper with subtle changes. It gets an aggressive radiator grille that includes prominent logo of the brand in the centre. The side profile retains the elements that are seen in the pre-facelifted version. At the back, the car gets revamped tail lamps. In terms of dimensions, its base trim gets overall length of 3775 mm while the other variant are measured at 3884 mm in length. The width stands at 1695mm, the height is measured at 1510mm while the wheelbase stands at 2460mm. Toyota Etios Liva comes in vibrant shades such as Silver Mica Metallic, Classic Grey, Vermilion Red, Celestial Black, White and Harmony Beige. The dual-tone model in the range comes with black roof with contrasting colours including Inferno Orange, Vermilion Red and Super White.
Stepping inside, Toyota Etios Liva comes with spruced up cabin and revamped seats. The car though gets several of the updates but remains identical at most of the places. The high end variants are equipped with roomy interiors and packed with numerous sophisticated aspects. The cabin is designed quite beautifully and is adorned with dual tone colour scheme. The seats are covered with new fabric upholstery. The car offers enough legroom as well as headroom for the passengers to be seated comfortably. As for the convenience of the occupants, Toyota Etios Liva comes with several goodies that includes air conditioner with heater and clean air filter, power windows with driver side auto down, electric power steering with tilt function, steering mounted controls, height adjustable driver seat, electrically adjustable and retractable ORVMs and cooled glove box. Other features are digital trip meter, tachometer, 2-DIN music system that gets MP3 player, CD player, FM/AM tuner with four speakers. The unit also supports AUX-In, Bluetooth connectivity and USB port.
Under the hood, Toyota Etios Liva continues to operate with the same engine which powered the predecessor. It gets both the diesel and petrol powertrains for the buyer to choose from. The 1.2L 4-cylinder petrol oil burner is capable of generating the power output of 80PS and the maximum torque of 104Nm. On the other hand, its 1.4L diesel powertrain can churn the power output of 68PS and belts out the maximum torque of 170Nm. Both the engines come mated to 5-speed manual transmission. Still the automatic option is not offered in the car. The car delivers ARAI certified mileage figures for the petrol and diesel trim which are quite impressive. The petrol variant delivers 18.16kmpl while the diesel variant returns 23.59kmpl of fuel efficiency figures.
As for the safety, Toyota Etios Liva is packed with various safety aspects that includes Dual SRS airbags, keyless entry, engine immobilizer, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat, reverse sensors, rear defogger, driver seat belt warning, door ajar warning, central locking, power door lock, turn indicators on ORVM and headlamp beam adjuster.
Toyota Etios Liva is offered in four different variants such as G, GX, V and VX. The pricing for the same starts from Rs. 5.25 lakh for the petrol trim and Rs. 6.54 lakh for the diesel variants. Toyota Etios Liva G is tagged at Rs. 5.25 lakh and Rs. 6.54 lakh for the petrol and diesel variants respectively. The V model is available at the price tag of Rs. 5.72 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 6.95 lakh for diesel. Toyota Liva top of the line trim VX is tagged at Rs. 6.21 lakh for petrol and Rs. 7.36 lakh for diesel trim.
As far as rivals are concerned, Toyota Etios Liva goes against the well-grounded competitors they are Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo.


The cabin of the Etios Liva hatch is identical to the sedan sibling as both share the same platform. The car now looks less bland than the earlier model with dual-toned interiors including the dashboard which features ivory black colour scheme. The dashboard now also features new optitron speedometer which is a combination of digital tachometer as well as analog speedometer with beautiful graphic illumination.
The seats gets new beige finished fabric upholstery while the rear seats are foldable to spare more room for luggage. Even with the reduced wheelbase, the car is able to absorb 5 adult occupants. Interior room is not only one of the best in its class but also equal to some of the c-segment sedans, especially the rear seats which are way ahead of the rival Swift. There is enough room for head and knees but a bit more cushioning could have been better. Though the thigh support is nice, the back support was not that good enough. The boot space at 251L is decent enough for family luggage while the loading bay could have been slightly lower for easy load/unload.
The first thing that catches the attention is the sporty 3-spoke steering wheel which is one of the best in its class. There mounted controls are super light while the leather stitching gives a premium feel. The thick and flat bottomed steering is tilt adjustable but the range is quite limited. The fit and finish inside the cabin has much improved from the predecessor. The list of equipment has also been increased to make it stand shoulder to shoulder to its rivals. The new Etios Liva features height adjustable driver seat, cooled glove box, rear removable headrests and remote fuel-lid opener.
The car comes with manual air conditioning and non-touchscreen infotainment which is pretty disappointing looking at what the contemporaries are offering. However, the carmaker has given a music player which allows USB, Bluetooth and Aux-in connectivity. Another good thing is that there are plenty of storage spaces across the cabin which makes it one of the best in its class. There are seat back pockets, 7 bottle holders and front and rear door pockets for storing all those knick knacks. What is better this time around is the operability as the switchgear and controls are clutter free. However, the overall cabin still needs improvement if we look from what contemporaries such as Ford Figo and Hyundai Grand i10 are offering.


The new Etios Liva has received exterior tweaks as well. At the front, the car gets revised bumper and redesigned grille which enhance the overall front profile. The animation on the smiling grille and the chrome highlights on the revamped fog lamp housing need special mention here. The traditional headlamps remain identical.
The side profile is flanked by 15-inch alloy wheels which were first seen in the Sportivo model. The lower variants get 14-inch wheels. The panel on the roof are ribbed to keep it light and rigid. The flat type door handles are outdated, in fact, more than one and a half decade back which is something the carmaker has to seriously look into. The ORVMs with integrated turn indicators remain the same streamlined units that gels well with the overall design.
The rear bumper has also been restyled while the tail lamps remain the same well-designed unit which perfectly suits the rear profile. The thick chrome strip which was there in the earlier version has been removed while the sweet rear spoiler has been retained which looks pretty good, especially on the dual tone version. Overall, Toyota has given decent cosmetic changes which add to the sporty character of the car.

Mileage Running Cost

In terms of fuel efficiency, the new Toyota Etios Liva does justice especially when we look at the competition. Where the petrol powered Liva returns ARAI certified mileage of 17.71kmpl, the diesel one on the other hand, is good for delivering 23.59kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

The ride quality remains identical and one of the strongest points of this car. The carmaker has beefed up the suspension taking in mind the extra weight the diesel engine carries. The suspension is now more on softer side and the car feel composed over bumps and other road undulations.
However, at highways speeds, the car tends to bounce a bit especially when the car is unloaded. The meaty steering as mentioned is wonderful to hold and the light nature makes the car a fun to drive vehicle. Overall, the ride quality and comfort remains one of the best in its segment.

Engine Performance

The engine options remain the same in the new Etios Liva. Talking about the petrol one, the 1.2L 4-cylinder DOHC engine produces 80PS and 104Nm of torque, paired to 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine on the other hand, is the 1.4L 4-cylinder SOHC unit which pumps out 68PS and 170Nm of max torque, mated to 5-speed manual transmission. It’s a pity that still the car is not available with the automatic option when even the cars below segment are offering it.
Nevertheless, the petrol one is the free-revving one start off the line pretty quickly giving lively driving experience in the cities. This is possible through good-mid range and the light clutch. The 5-speed manual gearbox does the job of slotting with least effort. Even for daily commuters who are devoting a lot of time struggling through the busy traffic won’t find any reason to complain as far as comfort is concerned.
The progress becomes less inspiring when you leave city premises and head on to open stretches. Once you get into the triple digit speed, don’t expect the car to pull strongly. However, irrespective whether you are driving in cities or highways, the engine remains fairly smooth. The diesel engine on the other hand is the same working in Corolla Altis. The carmaker has emphasized the drivability of the engine through wide band of torque.
Start the engine and you will witness that the 1.4L turbo-diesel motor settles down to a refined idle state with minimum clatter. Initially, there is some clatter like typical diesel engines do, but once the engine warms up, it becomes quiet on the outside. The power is transferred in a linear manner while there is minimal turbo lag and one can upshift early without getting stuck. The mid-range performance of the diesel engine is quite good and the overall drivability is quite better than Ford Figo.

Braking Safety

One area where the car excels is the braking capacity; it is sharp and inspires confidence. In terms of safety, the Etios Liva does comes shoulder to shoulder with the dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child restrain system offered as part of standard fitment.
Other important safety aspects in the car include engine immobilizer, keyless entry, height adjustable front headrest, removable rear headrest, driver seat belt warning with buzzer, front fog lamps, rear defogger and reverse parking sensors.
