About Toyota Etios Liva

The Toyota Etios Liva has been given a facelift along with its larger sibling, the Platinum Etios, to help it look more premium in the face of increased competition. Toyota has even added eye-catching, dual-tone colours to make the Etios Liva look a tad sporty. Like the Platinum Etios, the Etios Liva has the advantage of offering more space on the inside than any of its hatchback rivals, a whole lot of safety features as standard, proven underpinnings and the backing of a reliable and affordable service network.

Toyota Etios Liva Overview

Toyota India has discontinued the Etios Liva 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.

Previously, Toyota had launched a new version of the Etios Liva for the Indian market, called the Eitos Liva Limited Edition. The new version is based on the top-of-the-line VX and VXD variants only. Prices for the VX start from Rs 6.5 lakh while the diesel variants’ prices start from Rs 7.65 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Limited Edition features a black front grille with red accents and a black roof. The dual-tone Etios Liva Limited Edition is only available with the super white paint scheme. Inside, the red and black theme has been carried over. In terms of safety, the car gets ABS with EBD, dual front airbags and ISOFIX child seat mounts which are standard across the range. The Etios Liva is powered by a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine making 80PS of max power and 104Nm of torque. There’s a 1.4-litre diesel engine too, which produces 68PS of max power and 190Nm of peak torque.

The Etios Liva competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Etios Liva

Q. Which is best car between Baleno and Etios Liva
  • Baleno is a better car, smooth and easy to drive, quite engine & cabin. Good features on offer at lower prices but where it falls short is built quality. It\'s so light that it gives great mileage as well but at the cost of built.Etios Liva is a nice looking car, has a spacious cabin(can seat 3 easily) and Toyota have added nice panels on the interior making it look worth the money. Even the outside gets nice looking alloys and the dual tone option makes the car look great. This car is light as well and returns a great mileage and it\'s also peppy(good torque on offer). But the car doesn\'t have alot of features on offer. But the car is also built well for a 900+kg vehicle (4 star global n-cap) so I feel Etios is a good option but it\'s discontinued now :(
  • If its diesel then no doubt Liva but if petrol then Baleno in all sense except safety and very long term reliability. Maruti's service network is superior and parts are cheap and resale value is more whereas liva is best for long term reliability and tension free ownership.
  • If you are looking for tech things then you should go for baleno. But if you want a stable car with good ride quality then you should go for Liva

Q. Which car should I buy under 8 lakh with good built quality, good average and safety?
  • You have many options under 8lakh but if you want good built quality then forget about MARUTI cars.And you want good average to the forget about HYUNDAI petrol cars too. So you left with I20 diesel, Honda amaze (petrol and diesel),Ford figo .So acc. to me I personally suggest you to avoid diesel cars in todays time . So you can go for honda amaze petrol if you want a sedan and ford figo petrol if you want a hatch.i personally recomend you ford figo because it is more fun to drive car .
  • Maruthi - milage only rest all leave it to god,Hyundai - just like whatsapp always gets updates and feel like new and the car you bought is older version in 1year,renault - no safety rest all leave it to brand,nissan - bhul jao service ka jhatka lagega,honda - only premium cars are good in built quality small cars baath tho chodo who lene pe 2nd hand me old maruthi lesakthe,WV - best to leave laugh as comment LOL,Skoda - nahee yar ham middel class hei maintain nahee kar paayeFORD - haa figo ya freestyle le sakthe vo hi disel only maza,milage,safety,aspire ek dam hey fir bhi back side bottel holders,project head lamps nahee hei fir bhi adjust hojayega. I am talking all cars under 9 Lakhs only. yaar FORD he lena drive karetho achee legega .. family ko safety dena 6airbags doosre cars me tho chodo..
  • Go for a Volkswagen Polo Comfortline TSI. Excellent build quality and safety. Super fun to drive. A great infotainment system (not a touchscreen tho). Good boot space. The perfect size for Indian roads. Overall, a great car for its price. (not like Maruti Suzuki, which are toycars).

Q. I wanted to buy a new car. I have selected three cars 1. Toyota Etios Liva diesel 2. Honda Jazz diesel 3. Hyundai i20 Elite diesel. My purpose mainly city driving. I have 3 shops so I have to drive from one shop to other. My average km is around 75 km per day. So which car should I choose.
  • I'm using liva since 2012 and one thing I must share is that I drive it on my reflexes only. If you drive in proper recommended way, 300-400 km driving is just a fun. I have done it so many times without getting tired. It never shivers even at 120-140 kmph (on express highways). In city goes smooth in crowd @5-10 kmph. The shape in terms of driving comfort is so good that I do never care if the front part is passed in a narrow situation, the rear portion passes away as a rule. There is no unnecessary elevation to touch other vehicles on road. AC vents position is best and optimally designed. The looks and shape may be not be as good as i20 or Baleno. The interiors and light body may not be very exciting in comparison to others. But driving comfort is cheerful. I have Baleno too since last 3 years but still feel addicted to liva. The low maintenance cost is only around 3000 per year for first 5 years and slightly higher after that is an additional tension-free experience. On other cars it becomes a big headache, I got three different rates on same authorised workshop of maruti when I sent my driver for same routine service. He was smart enough to save further after negotiation when the work was completed. Still it was 1.5 times higher than what we still have pay to Toyota.

    Styling of this car is really well done. Performance is good, because of the light weight. 170 Nm of torque(diesel) it feels peppy. Very spacious, can sit 3 people easily at the back seat. Downsides are very less features and alot of hard plastics and cost cutting materials in cabin. Cabin insulation is average and Engine note is lovely.

    this has been one of the most reliable and comfortable hatchback I have drove in my family. It has never let us down , no matter what. maintenance is next to nil. the only drawback has been it's mileage. Had I baught a diesel motor I would have never parted or thaught of parting by this beauty. I am thinking of letting this go after it has been with the family for 4 years and 45k kilometres. it still looks the same as brand new. The colours are well and truly intact as it was when I baught it 4 years back.

    First gear and second gear pickup could be improved. Probably something like SOHC configuration which helps lower end torque. Upper body and bonnet and door material(finishing) is very ordinary because outside noise is noticeable including engine noise. Distance to empty is must to have feature in petrol cars at least. Safety is at its best along with seating arrangements. Interiors looks above average. Servicing in Toyota is no doubt much better than any other brand. Headlight is single beam but does its job in city area (on highway one will need fog lamps or HIDs). Cars sound in cabin is considerably higher than other petrol cars in India.

    it is one of the best hatchback ... although some may find it's interior bland but it's a matter of choice that you want a safe and reliable car or just show off ... I will recommend this car toonly those who have some substance in them... and don't quiver for materialistic things

Always quite competent, the Toyota twins get tiny tweaks to make them even better, making it harder for us to imagine if anything better is even possible, as we find out

March 22, 2013  By Priyadarshan Bawikar Photography: Kunal Khadse

Longer, swifter and sportier, the new MSIL Swift model has the potential to re-anchor its domination in the Indian small car market, but for those looking out for something a lot roomier at no extra cost, the Toyota Etios Liva Diesel may be your best bet
