Toyota Etios Liva Specification and Features

The Etios Liva, which will be available in four variants, J, G, V and VX just like it’s sedan sibling will come with a cooled 13 liter glovebox that common to all the variants, and thus a very nice addition to the car. This apart, another nice addition is the remote to control the 2-DIN stereo apart from the steering mounted controls the Etios Liva Hatchback comes with. The kerb weight of the car at 890 to 920 KGs for the different variants means that the performance won’t be as peppy as the Etios Sedan, which produces more power and torque from a 300cc bigger engine.

For the record, the Etios Liva hatchback produces 80 Bhp power and 104 Nm torque output from the Etios Liva. The standout factor here is the ARAI certified 18.31 KMPL fuel economy figure which is expected to really move things for Toyota at the hustings, and this is something that is very relevant in these times of sky high petrol prices, given that the Etios Liva Diesel will arrive only by the end of this year or early next year. The Etios Liva’ offers airbags, ABS and EBD as the standard safety bits in the higher V and VX variants.

A good thing though is the fact that Airbags, ABS and EBD can be specified as optional for the G variant, which is a good thing as this offers the car buyer more choice, especially when it comes to the critical safety features of ABS and Airbags. The interiors don’t seem any different from the Etios Sedan and hence expect plenty of cheap feeling bits all around. That, in a nutshell is the Toyota Etios Liva for you, a day before Toyota Kirloskar India will officially launch the hatchback in Gandhiland. The only thing that remains a secret is the price, which reportedly will be close to the 4 Lakh rupee mark or even lesser for the base variant.
