Minor cosmetic and feature changes for Toyota’s entry-level model.

The soon-to-launch Toyota Etios Liva facelift was snapped inside and out by Gaadi Waadi. The refreshed Liva was spied days after the refreshed Etios sedan was fully revealed in spyshots.

The new grille is the only defining design element on the Liva and Etios facelifts.

Like the sedan, the refreshed Liva too gets a new grille although its not a chrome element, but a body colored one. Save for the grille, there are no other changes to the sides or rear of the car.

Interior changes can be described as minimalistic at best. The steering wheel of this top-end VX-D model gets a leather wrap, while the door armrests get a new fabric insert. The area around the gearlever gets a chrome garnish as well. Feature changes come in the form of electrically-adjustable wing mirrors and rear parking sensors.

The interior continues unchanged save for minor feature additions.

According to the report, Toyota will offer a driver-side airbag as standard fitment on all variants of the Liva, and the top-end variant seen here will continue to get dual front airbags.

Mechanical changes are not in the offing, and the Liva facelift will continue with its 1.2-liter petrol engine and 1.4-liter diesel engine.
