Editor's View of Toyota Etios Liva
A genuinely spacious 5-seat hatchback, the Etios Liva offers a lot of storage space - a 13-litre cooled glovebox and 251 litres of bootspace! The engine and transmission are tuned for city driving while the electrically adjustable ORVMs, powerful A/C, steering-mounted multimedia controls and good all round visibility enhance comfort. The ride is comfortable while the handling is neutral. It is backed up by Toyota dependable quality, service network and affordable parts.
Looks rather bland from the side while the interior quality feels sub par. There‚Äôs not even touchscreen infotainment system on offer. Other cost-cutting measures prevent it from feeling premium. For example, the A/C controls are old-school, dial-type units with flimsy build. The front seatbelts are not height adjustable and can prove to be cumbersome for shorter drivers. Also, there‚Äôs no dead pedal or space to place your left foot on longer drives.
The Toyota Etios Liva makes sense for those who prefer space and practicality over everything else. The 1.5-litre petrol is smooth and the 1.4-litre diesel is dependable. The Etios is let down by cost cutting measures and a bland design.
Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Etios Liva
- 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 .
- Go for Hyundai I-10,as it is easier to maintain , it looks sophisticated and the car has good seating space plus will have no parking and driving problems in congested cities..if your budget is a little higher then go for Hyundai I-20
- If you increase budget by little bit (say 8.30 lakhs) then Toyota Liva diesel followed by ford freestyle diesel followed by Hyundai diesel basic version will be better choices from a cost, safety and long term maintenance perspective. Ford will be superior in build quality in above 3 cars. Toyota is best and proven track record and lowest maintenance. Hyundai has good mileage and look n feel is better than rest of the two.
- I had very good experience of suspension of etios liva. Suspensions are very durable n good.
- It is a good car depends on the individual choice
- It a vague question best hatch in the segment is Hyundai i20
- You can go for it, even if it discontinues, you can get it's spare parts. It's a solid build car. My car etios Liva is nearly 9 years old and no problem with it. Gives good mileage around 16. it is the best car. Or if your mind is not willing to buy as it is going to be discontinued then you can go for the Ford Freestyle 1.5 Diesel which is very good
- Liva is a no non sense, solid built car , and Toyota will provide spares and service for the entirety of the life of the vehicle (15yrs ) .... So if you like it , then go for it!
- Not recommended it , because of lot of cascading issues down the line ( from resale to maintainance)
- Etios live might not look that much appealing from outside but from inside it is very spacious,it's seats are wide to give comfort to 3 people with good leg space
- Yes in hatchback only Liva and Vista are good ones for 3 people in rear seat. I did one long trip and my family members felt comfortable in rear seat.
- Yes very comfortable

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.
I am driving Etios Liva VXD last six months. Continuously I have drive this car upto 800 km non stop with any average speed of 60-70 kmph. No issue faced. car is most stable on road and quick response of engine. Comfert level is quite good. Value for money car.& it is best car for small famlies. Truly said go for it. As compare to Maruti swift its far batter in build quality. But Maruti gives more features. as per me this car need some up gradation i mean to say that there should be more features in it.
I have had this car since 2013 . It's been a reliable and the service has been cost effective . However as of now the compressor for the AC has burnt out and I got a quote of 42 thousand from the authorised service centre .
This car back in 2014 had ample space inside but the quality of the interior did not meet the expectation from a brand known for premium cars. engine performance is satisfying but no feel good factor in this car at all
I am using this car from last four years, i have a wonderful experience with car and also with Toyota. Now i can go anywhere with fully comfortable mind happy with my etios liva simply i like it.
good performance and good maintenance
Very good car goodhandling mileage etc
Overall good but mileage issue and noise is more
It's a nice car for city driving and zero maintenance cost
It is ok

Toyota Etios Liva Highlights
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.
Etios Liva 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.
Etios Liva 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.
Etios Liva Exterior and Interior
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 Etios Liva 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.
While the Toyota Etios Liva scores high in terms of interior space, affordability and dependability, its built-to-a-cost quality and please-all but bland design let it down in a segment filled with more excitable products.
