The front fascia of the facelifted Etios will be thoroughly redesigned, featuring changes identical to the ones seen in the just-launched Toyota Etios Platinum from Brazil. It gets a new V-shaped grille with black inserts and chrome accents, sporty bumper with a larger intake and round foglamps, redesigned chrome bar running across the boot and an updated rear bumper.

Spyshots of the interior have revealed a dual tone black and beige dashboard with beige fabric seats, black leather-wrapped steering wheel with buttons, and chrome inserts for the HVAC vents.
