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.

Reported to launch on September 13.

GaadiWaadi has posted more images and brochure scans of the upcoming Toyota Etios facelift, ahead of its launch reported to take place on September 13.

The facelifted Etios features a new V-shaped grille with chrome embellishers and a sportier bumper up front.

The exterior of the new Etios sports a redesigned front fascia, featuring a new V-shaped grille with black inserts (chrome embellishers for Etios) and a sportier bumper with larger intakes as well as round foglamps with boomerang-shaped chrome accents. At the back, the bumper has been slightly re-profiled. Another notable change is that the Etios Liva loses the chrome garnish on its tailgate, while the Etios features a bolder chrome garnish repositioned to the middle.

Inside, the new Etios gets a revised instrument cluster, featuring a chrome highlight around the large speedometer, and a digital tachometer. Top-end VX models also feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio buttons, a dual tone grey and ivory dashboard, new beige fabric seats, power-operated ORVMs, foldable rear bench seat, and a central armrest for the rear seat (Etios sedan only).
