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).

Q. Which is best between Swift LDi and Toyota Etios Liva GD?
  • Confused as both the cars are equally balanced. For after sales service and resale value swift but for only performance I feel Toyota etios liva.
  • Go for Swift Vdi... Liva is outdate car. It has a worst dashboard. Since 2011 till now it doesn't have any major update. Swift will bring smile on your face... Its a fun to drive car.
  • Etios is good car but if you need more power it is better to have a swift diesel and better features

    45k kilometres

    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.

    Light weight

    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.

Toyota Etios Liva Expert Reviews

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
