Scheduled for launch on the 9th of September 2011, the diesel injected Toyota Etios and Liva hatchback versions will certainly make India's diesel car space a brighter and more varied market to choose from

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’ve waited and wondered, and perhaps even asked why, but all said and done there is no denying the fact that Toyota has waited long enough studying and analysing the demand for diesel cars in India, only to now officially announce that it will launch diesel versions of its Etios sedan and Liva hatchback on the 9th of September 2011.

 

The globally successful diesel mill up for the task is none other than the company’s versatile D-4D engine, that is already in action in India under the hood of the Toyota Corolla Altis and the best-selling Innova MPV. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The already refined 1.4 liter diesel powerplant that has worked wonderfully for Toyota’s diesel cars in India till date will now work its magic on the Etios and recently launch Liva hatch. However unlike in the Corolla Altis, the oil burner for both Etios and the Liva will not feature a Variable Geometry Turbocharger, which will definitely result in a slight drop in the overal power output on both cars as compared to the Altis.

 

But taking the overall credentials of this proven performer, the launch of the new Toyota Etios and Liva diesel models will most definitely silence the countless enquiries that Toyota customers have made about the availability of a diesel version of both cars right since the launch of the Etios sedan in 2010. 

 

For further insights on the credibility and performance attributes of the D-4D diesel powerplant that now will come alive once again on the new Etios and Liva diesel models, check out our Etios Liva Diesel transplant preview : Etios Twins ready for Diesel Transplant

 

SLIDESHOW:

 

  • Toyota ETIOS  LIVA

The LIVA shares a lot with its sedan sibling the Etios and this can be seen from the similar front design treatment. With the trunk knocked off and replaced with a stylish rear hatch, the LIVA actually looks a lot better than its sedan sibling, at least in flesh
