    Fantastic entry level segment . Used it for 2.5 yrs with average 15k km/yr. The maintenance cost was a surprisingly low at RS 3000/ yr. It’s more stylish internally than Swift Dzire and of course huge spacious as we’ll. I think one needs an intelligent though process to be able to select from between practical and gaudy/ show off. It’s a perfect city sedan which does equally well on highways.

    Another joke from Toyota after the Etios Cross. Just plain ugly, scrap the Etios, Liva & Cross ; they look third rate and dated.
