Toyota Etios HatchbackThe Toyota Etios was developed to beat the Suzuki Swift and the Dzire

By Swift twins we mean Swift and Swift Dzire.

Toyota will launch an all-out attack on Suzuki in December 2010 when its second plant in Bidadi, Karnataka will start producing the Etios hatchback and sedan, which will debut internationally in India.

The Toyota Etios will be 10% more fuel efficient than the Suzuki Swift and should be slightly more spacious as well.

Toyota Kirloskar managing director Hiroshi Nakagawa –

The car’s exact price, we expect to be in the range of Swift and Dzire cars. We plan to sell 70,000 units in 2011. Despite lot of features and high quality, Etios will have a localisation level of around 75% initially and then will be increased to 100% in the near future

Toyota will concentrate on the local demand for the first year and from the second year onwards, exports will begin. ASEAN and African regions will see ‘Made in India’ on their Toyota Etioses.

If Toyota have got a very strong contender that is better than the Swift in every imaginable way, then Suzuki’s fitting reply could be in the form of the new gen Swift that is expected to debut at the Paris Motor Show in late 2010.
