Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will feature a thoroughly revised front fascia.

Toyota is working on mid-cycle refresh for the Etios, which will launch in India during the festive season. Pre-production examples have been spied testing recently, revealing some of the changes in store.

Pre-production examples of the new Etios have been spied testing recently, revealing some of the changes in store.

The front fascia of the facelifted Etios will be thoroughly redesigned, featuring changes identical to the ones seen in the just-launched Toyota Etios Platinum from Brazil. It gets a new V-shaped grille with black inserts and chrome accents, sporty bumper with a larger intake and round foglamps, redesigned chrome bar running across the boot and an updated rear bumper.

Spyshots of the interior have revealed 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.
