In Images – Refreshed Toyota Etios and Liva arrive at dealerships

Posted on: Oct 28, 2014 - 4:45pm IST

Dual front airbags are standard across the range. 

Earlier this month, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched mildly updated versions of its entry-level models, the Etios and Etios Liva. Since then, dealerships have received the stock of the new models.

The grille is the single defining cosmetic change on the new Etios twins.

Cosmetic revisions extend to a new ‘tooth-shaped’ grille (the top-end Etios sedan gets a chrome grille), new seat fabrics and a new finish for the door armrests. The Etios sedan received a new color called ‘Pearl White’.

Feature wise, the top-end variants come with reverse parking sensors, a larger LCD for the instrument cluster, chrome door handles, rear speakers and electrically adjustable wing mirrors.

While these updates may be considered minor, the appreciated change is that TKM is offering dual front airbags as a standard feature across the Etios range (which also includes the Etios Cross).

The new Etios Liva petrol is priced between INR 4.76 to INR 6.57 lakhs, and is powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine making 80 PS (78.87 bhp) and 104 Nm of torque. The 1.5-liter petrol engine has been discontinued on the new Liva. The diesel Liva, which ranges from INR 5.94 to INR 6.95 lakhs relies on a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine to make 68 PS (67.04 bhp) and 170 Nm of torque.

    From a safety angle, it is fantastic that Toyota India has launched the New Etios MMC 2 – 2014 with dual front airbags on all variants. In view of the ongoing (worldwide) Takata airbag fiasco, can Toyota India confirm that the New Etios MMC 2 – 2014 (India) is free of Takata airbag related defects? Note: Nissan & Honda (India) have announced recalls of Sunny and Amaze just this weekend (Oct 27 2014).

    Hi Anjan and/or Indianautobloggers, TKM should be congratulated for their commitment to safety in view of dual airbags across all variants. However in view of the ongoing global Takata airbag fiasco, do you know if the new MMC2 Etios (launched on 15 Oct 2014) is free of Takata airbag related defects ? I ask this because I read reports (Oct 27 media reports) of Nissan and Honda recalling Sunny and Amaze respectively due to Takata airbag issues. Has anyone contacted TKM on this issue ? Please let this blog know. Thank you.

    1. Hello Mohan, not heard from them, will investigate.
