Toyota Platinum Etios Latest Updates

Toyota India plans to discontinue the Etios in the country. The model comes with BS4 1.4-litre diesel and 1.5-litre petrol engines, neither of which will be updated to BS6. Production stopped in January and dealerships are clearing the BS4 stock before the March 31 BS6 deadline. The Glanza will be Toyota’s entry-level offering in India after April, and the Yaris will be Toyota's most affordable sedan.

Platinum Etios Specifications

The Toyota Etios Liva can be had with two engines - a petrol and a diesel - both paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol develops 90PS of maximum power and 132Nm of peak torque. The 1.4-litre, turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine develops 68PS of power and 170Nm of torque.

Platinum Etios Variants

Four variant levels are offered with each engine - G, GX, V and VX - with prices ranging from Rs 5.25 lakh to Rs 6.21 lakh for the petrol and from Rs 6.54 lakh to Rs 7.36 lakh for the diesel variants.

Platinum Etios Features

Updates include a new bumper and grille that give the Etios Liva a hint of sportiness. Toyota has used the same formula for both the Liva and the Platinum Etios, adding a bloder face which includes a new bumper with fax intakes. The changes seem to be minimal in nature when viewed from the side. That said, the dual tone paint option is a welcome addition.

Like the Platinum Etios, the Liva has the same well built feeling about it. It has enough space to seat five people properly, but misses out on a rear centre armrest. The sense of space inside is enhanced thanks to extra large windows and a beige theme. The updated instrument cluster and electrically foldable mirrors along with standard safety features are the only additions to the Liva. It misses out on an automatic climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system like many of its competition.

Toyota Platinum Etios Competitors

Maruti Suzuki Swift: The all-new Swift starts from where the old model left off - at the top. The chassis is lighter, there is more space on the inside, the design is evolutionary on the outside but revolutionary on the inside and there are new features which make it even more premium.

Hyundai Grand i10 : The Hyundai Grand i10 has been given a facelift to keep it in contention in this fast moving segment. Though it is on par with the competition in terms of quality, features and a good diesel engine, it loses out on interior space.

Fiat Punto Evo : One of the oldest cars in the segment, even the facelift is an old car - launched back in 2014 - the Punto Evo lives on a legacy of build quality and handling prowess with surprisingly low interior space and old features.

Renault Pulse: One of the other old cars in the segment, the Pulse is Renault’s version of the Nissan Micra. While it does have space and an efficient diesel engine, the car’s age is showing in the sea of new age competition.

Toyota Platinum Etios Price

Toyota Platinum Etios prices start at Rs. 6.50 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 8.03 lakh. The prices of Platinum Etios diesel variants start at Rs. 7.60 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 9.13 lakh.

Editor's View of Toyota Platinum Etios

  • Upside

    Spacious especially at the rear, Comfortable ride, Engine tuned for easy city commuting, Backed by dependable Toyota service network

  • Downside

    Looks bland even with facelift, Interior quality feels sub-par, Features missing including touchscreen infotainment system, Cost-cutting is obvious

  • Our Verdict

    The Toyota Etios Liva sense for those who prefer space, practicality and crave a hassle-free ownership experience. The Etios is let down by cost-cutting measures and bland design.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Platinum Etios

Q. Which is best dzire or etios?
  • You can't go wrong by choosing either these two. Both the cars are good in terms of efficiency and safety. Maruti has tried to provide all the safety features, which make the passengers safe during the ride and also make sure there is less damage to the car in case of an accident. The top end trims are equipped with anti-lock braking system, EBD along with dual SRS airbags. The central locking system, engine immobilizer, side impact beams, three-point seat belts and child safety locks come in as standard features. Toyota Etios Sedan is loaded with numerous safety features, in the top end trim you would find ABS, EBD, dual SRS airbags, driver’s seat belt warning, and keyless entry. On the other hand, the engine immobilize, day and night inside rear view mirror, door ajar warning, central locking system, headlight –on warning are other regular safety traits here. Toyota Etios Sedan is a good looking car, which is also pleasurable to drive. However, Maruti Swift Dzire gets good marks in the mileage department whereas Etios has spacious cabin as compared to Dzire. An option of automatic variant on the Dzire also makes the offer more appealing. Therefore, Maruti Suzuki has always been ahead in the race and here too.
  • 2 things which makes ratios a clear winner in my eye is the superb low on noice diesel though delivers average power with variable turbo ,second Toyota after sales experience. Now maruti had stopped ldi dezire new design is nice but engine life after 1 lac? petrol both gives a value for money performance. Thanks.
  • First of all don't compare Etios with DZire. Etios is the clear winner.

Q. Which engine oil grade and quantity to be used - Platinum Etios?
  • Toyota Recomend Only
  • 3.5 litre or 4 litre
  • Castrol 5W30
Q. How much is the Toyota platinum Etios engine life?
  • It is a Toyota and with the prescribed services & oil changes, there is no reason why it should not give you well over 300+ thousand kilometres. As a matter of fact the Etios engine & gearbox is over engineered & in South Africa an ex-racing engineer are boosting the 1.5 petrol engine (Google "Etios RSi South Africa". Several articles online) and if done right, the gearbox & engine can handle up to 160kw although he is only taking it to 140kws. Incredible if standard Etios delivers only 66kws. So the engine should give very high milage, to answer your question.

    The engine (petrol) is observed to be slightly underpowered . The vehicle is extremely stable and gives very good ride quality. Being rugged one need not be concerned about the occassionally fall into a pothole unknowingly. Further steering alignment is strong and stable requiring only a minor correction even at 10,000 km. The vehicle is very spacious both front and rear. The vehicle should be upgraded with a powerful hybrid motor coupled to an autobiography and headlights changed to projector lamps. NVH can be further improved to keep the noise levels still lower.

    I am Like the platinum Etios VXD car. But still, I expected more features like a touch screen, a reverse camera like this for this price. But, really one main disadvantage is ground clearance when we travel 5 person getting damage under the car while crossing the speed breaker. This is the main issue. Otherwise, it's very comfortable for 5 people and good for a long drive.

    Overall its a good car. But the only problem with this car is its ground clearance. The chamber quite often gets hit in the hilly terrain, and co. has no protective, sheer or layer beneath the oil chamber.

    At the eve of Honda's first ever sub 4 meter sedan launch in India we take a closer look at all of its closely priced competitors, namely the Toyota Etios, the Mahindra Verito, Tata's Manza, the venerable Maruti DZire and Chevy's rookie the Sail sedan. Many of these have already taken on their next generation avatars and in doing so evolved into more flattering products based on customer feedback of their previous versions.

    The Verito is just out of the green room and Mahindra seems to have ironed out most of the issues plaguing the outgoing model, at least as far as styling and ergonomics are concerned. Pricing too has been kept at an enticing Rs 5.27 lakh for the base petrol variant. Here's how the entry-level sedan fares against its competitors
