The facelifted Etios and Etios Liva (pictured) are unlikely to see drastic mechanical changes.

The changes seen in the Etios Liva above will also be shared with the Etios sedan. Like the Brazilian-spec Etios Platinum, the new Etios features a V-shaped grille with black inserts and sporty bumper with a larger intake and round foglamps. The Indian-spec Etios exclusively gets chrome embellishers beside the circular foglamps.

The interior has not been revealed yet, but spyshots of a pre-production Etios facelift reveal 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. A detailed variant break-up as well as new features will be released when the Etios goes on sale this month.

The Etios is likely to retain the current engine lineup, which includes a 1.5L petrol engine and 1.4L diesel engine. The former produces 90 PS/132 Nm of torque, while the latter outputs 68 PS/170 Nm. The only transmission option is a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Etios Liva offers the 1.2L petrol engine.
