TKM officially launches top-end Liva diesel variants, updates mid-level variant


Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

It was reported last week that Toyota had added top-end variants on the Etios Liva diesel. While the company’s website listed the price of these variants, we did not receive a confirmation about the same.

Yesterday, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) sent out a press release confirming these variants, while also carrying out a minor update on the mid-level variant.
