The diesel version of Toyota's mass-market hatch is finally out, but a host of seriously good diesel offerings stand in its way!
One of the best value for money diesel vehicles around has many standout points, owing to which it has won numerous accolades last year. The diesel mill may not have great pull, but the real deal-sealers in its favour are the space it offers for its price, and fantastic balance between ride quality and comfort. The Liva in its diesel form has a great ride quality too which is neither too wallowy nor too bumpy, but the Figo (Read : First Drive) does offer better roadholding. The other thing it may lack in is when it comes to the badge value, and the allied trust that buyers have in the brand.
Maruti Suzuki Swift
The all-new Swift which has just made its appearance on the scene certainly has the headstart on the Liva when it comes to the diesel variants. The proved 1.3-litre DDiS powerplant more or less started the diesel revolution in family hatchbacks, and the new Swift (Read : First Drive) takes these same characteristics. Great fuel efficiency, larger on space, funkier when it comes to the interiors and a sharp handling car that likes being driven quick – the Swift has it all when it comes to the young buyer.

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.
Toyota 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 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.
Toyota 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.
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.

Q.What is the price of Toyota Etios Liva?
The starting price of Toyota Etios Liva in top cities are:
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’s 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’s 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.
