  • Q. How is the performance and maintenance cost?
    Zigwheels | 11 months ago

    What's particularly impressive about the Platinum Etios is the improvement in NVH levels. The thick insulation under the bonnet keeps the noise at bay. The motor is as tractable as ever, and has a tremendous amount of shove low down the rev range. Output remains unchanged at 68PS and 170Nm, which seems just about adequate for the saloon. Toyota has been marked with the best after sales service network & their products are by Toyota dependable quality, service network and affordable parts. The Toyota Etios 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. As experts we have no doubts about the Etios being a comfortable family road-tripper & it definitely knows how to keep the wallet happy.

    Similar to R15 bike. Light weight.. more power.. medium torque. Goes high speed, but struggles off road. If you ask me, it is a very good decent city sedan. Everything is proportionately given. Engine is good. Go for petrol.

  • Q. Is 67bhp and 170 nm torque enough for Platinum Etios? It is not having much power than its compatitors, does it feels powerful?
    Premnath | 2 months ago

    Its felt to be under powered with full complement of passengers and luggage with AC. But you can always drive in low gears and tap the engine power around 2000 rpm then it will be ok. You need to understand the vehicle and its engine characteristics to have a satisfactory drive, In short you need to be patient and then you can get good results without much of engine noise.

    Infact, it is comparitively less weight than others. So technically speaking the power and torque is enough for its weight, bcoz if there is more power added to such light car, it is unsafe while driving in corners. So technically this is right amount of power and torque for etios.

    NISHANTH | 5 months ago

    No way. Its 90 horsepower engine has loads and loads of torque ( 130 Nm ) which even makes overtaking a brezze in 4th gear. Ive even climbed up the Nilgiris hills in 4th.

    Low maintenance.Great riding comfort of sedanRugged built as suspension and steering assembly can take a little bit of offroading yet remain undisturbed.Tyre wear is nominal.Slightly underpowered when AC is on.Very reliable and sturdy engine for gruelling hill drives. Advice: Upto 10,000 Kms engine heat will be there so after a drive or if time permits in long drives allow good to be opened for rapid cooling of engine block. This helps in proper annealing of engine parts thereby allowing for proper setting which will result in higher mileage than what company states as 16.70 km/lit if petrol. Mileage in long drive including mild hilly terrain with engine at not more than 2000 rpm using Indian oil "Xtrapremium" or HP "Speed" was 19 km to the litre. Air filter should be regularly checked and replaced for good results and performance. Good roomy vehicle. Comfortably seats three at the rear.

  • Q. Is Etios VD diesel worth the price?
    Zigwheels | 3 months ago

    While the updates do make the Etios a more compelling package, the biggest talking point this time around is safety. Dual airbags and anti-lock brakes are now standard across the Etios range, which is a welcome move. It also gets ISOFIX mounts on the rear bench for the child seat. Toyota has gone a step ahead and reinforced the chassis; so it will fare better in a crash too as it scored a four-star rating in a crash test conducted by the Global NCAP. Yes, there's a lot missing on the feature list when you compare it to, say, an equivalently priced compact sedan. But, in exchange, you get a full-sized saloon that can accommodate five and their luggage, an efficient motor, and the backing of Toyota's fabled reliability. The selection here completely depends on one's choice and preference, do take the test drive of the car in order to clear all your doubts.

    Talking about the maintenance, the estimated maintenance cost for Honda Amaze diesel for 3 years is of Rs. 31,153 whereas, estimated service cost of the Toyota Platinum Etios for 6 years is Rs. 18,196. Clearly, in terms of maintenance, Etios is a better pick. Moreover, Honda Amaze is available with a 1498 cc i-DTEC diesel engine which churns out 98.6bhp@3600rpm and 200Nm of peak torque with the fuel efficiency of 27.4 km/l. Platinum Etios, on the other hand, has a 1364 cc D-4D Diesel engine which generates 67.05bhp@3800rpm and 170Nm of peak torque with the fuel efficiency of 23.59 km/l.​If you want a car with good power and good mileage, Honda Amaze is a better option for you. However, if you require a low maintenance car with decent performance then you can opt for Toyota Platinum Etios.For further comparison, click on the below link: https://www.zigwheels.com/compare-cars/honda-amaze-vs-toyota-etios

  • Q. How is it performed in village roads?
    Zigwheels | 7 months ago

    With the ride height of 170 mm it will get the job done in all type of road conditions. Moreover, Toyota has updated the Etios sedan and it's now christened, ‘Platinum Etios’. Toyota has given plenty of cosmetic changes to the Etios, but it is the front fascia that has changed the most. Mechanically, the Platinum Etios has remained unaltered and is powered by a 1.4-litre diesel (68PS, 170Nm) and a 1.5-litre petrol (90PS, 132Nm), with both engines mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, with retuned suspension setup, the updated Etios comes with improved ride and handling over the previous model. Do take a test drive in order to clear all your doubts.

  • Q. How much is the Toyota platinum Etios engine life?
    Fritz | 8 months ago

    It is a Toyota and with the prescribed services & oil changes, there is no reason why it should not give you well over 300+ thousand kilometres. As a matter of fact the Etios engine & gearbox is over engineered & in South Africa an ex-racing engineer are boosting the 1.5 petrol engine (Google "Etios RSi South Africa". Several articles online) and if done right, the gearbox & engine can handle up to 160kw although he is only taking it to 140kws. Incredible if standard Etios delivers only 66kws. So the engine should give very high milage, to answer your question.
