Will feature a thoroughly updated front fascia.

Carwale reports that Toyota Kirloskar Motor will introduce a facelift for the Toyota Etios sedan on September 13. It will share most of the cosmetic changes with the 2016 Toyota Etios Platinum launched recently in Brazil.

Dual front airbags were standardized on the Etios series, and will continue on offer with the facelifted model.

As seen in spyshots of the Etios facelift in India as well as official images of the Brazilian-spec Etios Platinum, most of changes are concentrated up front. It gets a new V-shaped grille with black inserts and chrome accents and a sporty bumper with a larger intake and round foglamps. At the back, the Etios facelift features a redesigned chrome bar running across the boot and an updated rear bumper.

The interior of the Etios facelift has 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. Toyota will reveal the variant break-up as well as new features when the Etios goes on sale.
