About Toyota Etios Cross

The Toyota Etios Cross is a beefed up version of the Liva hatchback and is targeted at other faux-crossovers or sub-4 metre SUVs like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V, Tata Nexon and others. First launched in May 2014, the Etios Cross was given a limited-run update in September 2017 with the launch of the X Edition variant. The Etios Cross offers a more rugged, SUV-like design on the dependable platform of the Etios Liva hatchback.

Toyota Etios Cross Overview

Toyota India has discontinued the Etios Cross hatchback in India and has removed the BS4 model from the company website. In the BS6 era which began on April 1, the Glanza will be Toyota’s entry-level model.

Production stopped in January and dealerships are clearing the BS4 stock before the April 24 deadline for BS4 sales.

The Etios Cross is a cross-hatchback based on the Etios Liva. It distinguishes itself from the hatchback with bulkier bumpers and body cladding. Under the bonnet, it offers the choice of the 90PS and 132Nm 1.5-litre petrol engine from the Etios sedan in addition to the Etios Liva's 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel motors.

It offers a more premium cabin than the Etios Liva, although the design is identical between all three models of the Etios family. The Etios Cross may not be an SUV, but its powerful engines and protective cladding make it seem more rugged than its hatchback and sedan siblings.

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.
  • Both are very different cars need a small size sedan to just commute in the city with unfairly medium size passenger go for the dezire its a best buy with a low maintenance cost and budget but if you are a person looking for a premium class sedan car with better options and better leg room and head room which will serve you for the long runs to come toyota always :)....
  • 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.

Q. Which car better i20 or Etios cross?
  • I will prefer Hyundai i20 over Toyota Etios cross. There are no specific reason, I just love Hyundai cars and that is why I am going with i20. When looking to the features of both cars both are at almost same level. Some of the main factors like, fuel efficiency, price range, performance, maintenance cost are almost same. There is a slight difference between both of the car when it comes to comfort & luxury.
  • Since i 20 petrol is 83 bhp,115nm and diesel is 90 bhp ,220nm engine ,usage of ac will not effect the performance. Generally petrol engine performance is not good if the number of people in the car is 4 or more as its under powered.Diesel engine is the best in class and is very smooth also. But its 1.5 lakhs costlier than petrol.
  • Hyundai I20 for ride quality. If you concern about legroom and boot space , go for Etios , but you have to miss smooth suspension and ride quality.

    Its almost been 3 ears since I own this car. I would just like to say, that if you are looking for a car in this segment. This is a car to go for. Spacious (for sitting) even healthy people can sit comfortably. The plastic body if very strong to absorb all the minor impact due to dumps and hits on roads. Your car looks with not be impacted as the black plastic will remain as it is with all the hits. I accidentally jumped over a broken road during my trip to gujarat. I felt like driving a rally car. The car didnt had any damage (excellent shock absorbers).The seats are much more comfortable, the riding experience is excellent.What i didnt like:Small boot space Mileage (approx 13 on highway 9 in mumbai city - you know the traffic well)Spare tyre is a normal one not alloy

    Very reliable car and has fairly good looks with the cladding. The only drawback is the low ground clearance due to which at speed-breakers it tends to touch the underbelly unless you are dead slow and maneuver very carefully.

  • 4.3

    A pretty good car overall, the plastic outside doesn"t do anything but make it look rugged. It actually gets damaged really quick by the slightest thing. Otherwise a pretty good car

  • 5.0

    i am happy to have this car, but i am scared that this model of car is stopped manufacturing

  • 4.3
