The interior is appointed with a multi function leather wrapped steering wheel, Piano Black theme, sporty seat fabric with white stitching and logo, chrome surround on the air vents, and a 2 DIN Audio with Bluetooth, USB, AUX-in & Remote.
Features on the Nepalese spec Etios Cross include keyless entry, Day/Night inside mirror, engine immobilizer, ABS and dual front airbags.
The car is powered by a 1,364 cc four-cylinder engine that develops 68 PS (50 kW) @ 3,800 rpm and 170 Nm (17.3 kg-m) @ 1,800-2,400 rpm, matched to a five-speed manual transmission. Its ARAI certified mileage is 23.59 km/l.
