Toyota discontinues Etios Liva Sportio edition

Toyota discontinues Etios Liva Sportio edition

Toyota has discontinued the Sportio editions of the Etios Liva hatchback. The petrol Sportio Liva used a more powerful 1.5-litre engine, while the diesel only had cosmetic upgrades to make it sportier than the standard variants.

The Sportio editions were part of Toyota’s efforts to establish accessories vertical at the dealerships. The cars based on the V variants of the hatchback had additional decals, body kits and special edition badging. The diesel version used the 1.2-litre engine producing 67bhp and 170Nm of torque, while the petrol was fitted with the 1.5-litre mill developing 88bhp and 132Nm. 

The cars were designed in conjunction with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and also displayed the numerous accessories that customers could pick at the showrooms. The hatchback hasn’t been doing too well for a while and this probably is the reason why company decided to discontinue these editions. Also, it didn’t work in Toyota’s favour that the petrol version with the bigger engine did not classify as a small car, attracting higher duty and costing lot more than the competition.

The Etios Liva is now available in four petrol and four diesel variants – the airbags are standard on all the variants, while the diesel versions also get ABS-EBD on the base level trim.
