The rear-end is likely to feature a chrome bar running between the taillamps and a slightly facelifted lower bumper.

The spyshot features the rear-end of the Etios facelift, which is likely to feature a chrome bar running between the taillamps and a slightly facelifted lower bumper. In older, up close spyshots, the front-end revealed a redesigned grille, where the sleek lines flow to form a V-shaped grille in the center with 4 slats, as well as new intakes and foglamp enclosures that look similar to the Toyota Vios.

Inside, the new Toyota Etios could offer a new fabric material for the cabin upholstery, while the steering pad design will be updated. A digital instrument cluster similar to the unit fitted in the Brazil-spec Etios and the Toyota Prius could also be seen in the facelifted Etios.
