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

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 .

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).

    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.

    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

    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

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

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
