Toyota Etios facelift (Etios Platinum) detailed in video


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.

Most of the changes will be seen in the India-spec Toyota Etios facelift.

Following its launch in Brazil last week, Noticias Automotivas has uploaded a video of a detailed walkaround of the Toyota Etios Platinum (facelift). The new Etios Platinum is priced from R$ 62,490 (INR 12.81 Lakhs) and R$ 65,990 (INR 13.53 Lakhs) for the hatchback and sedan, respectively.

Most of the changes are concentrated up front, featuring a new V-shaped grille with black inserts and chrome accents, a sporty bumper with larger intakes and round foglamps and a faux silver skid plate. It also gets new 15-inch alloy wheels with diamond cut finish, side skirts, a rear spoiler integrated on the boot and a slightly redesigned rear bumper.

Inside, the familiar design is retained, but it is now all black with piano black trim around the center console and gets a redesigned steering wheel with buttons, new fabric upholstery and an all digital instrument cluster inspired by the Toyota Prius. Some of the changes seen inside the Brazilian-spec Toyota Etios Platinum may not be featured in the India-spec Toyota Etios facelift.
