    Only those jokers and blind people may have bought the Etios Cross. It is just plain mockery that the toyota company is playing with the Indian consumers. What a shame that we Indian fall to such cheap ploy of a reputed company. Why is toyota not bring the RaV4 and Rush model ? They think that Indians only for cheap cars. Look and BMWs, MERC, Audi… all doing well. Change this mindset, Toyota…

    I completely agree with Deeapk .Etios is the ugliest car in India now with age old interiors and buttons etc.I think these 5400 blind people didn’t know that its nothing but plastic cladding and bumper in the front.
    Altis is a good looking car but 1.4 diesel engine competing with Elantra, Fluuemce, cruz is juat laughable..

    I can wholeheartedly accept the 3000 odd bookings for the new Corolla…BUT the 5400 reported bookings for the Etios Cross is shocking, unbelievable and highly negative for the Indian automobile industry as such.

    Is Toyota the brand name so strong enough to drive 5400 odd poor people to the showrooms to book a car, which is widely regarded as the ugliest ever car made in India ??? Pity them..sorry
