Bumper To Bumper – What should Toyota do with the Etios facelift?

Toyota Kirloskar Motors has announced that they are not going to bring any new products for the next three years.

Instead, the car maker is going to divert all its attention on the Toyota Etios twins whose sales have been slipping and sliding in the recent months. The facelifted versions are expected to be here by mid-2013. So what do we expect from Toyota on the Etios facelift?
For starters, the dashboard should be totally revamped and the plastic quality should be vastly improved. The front seats too should get some quality improvement along with adjustable head rests. The uninspiring interior design puts many potential buyers off.
The exterior design too has ample of room for improvement. We would like to see trimmings from the Dear Qin concepts that debuted at the Beijing Motor Show to filter into the Etios twins’ facelift.
In long term perspective, Toyota should consider advancing the next generation models of the Etios twins because the current models will age quickly and will be left helpless in the presence of much more modern and attractive rivals.
We would love to know your thoughts and opinions on what should change in the Etios. The comment box is all yours!
