Toyota Platinum Etios Photo Gallery

Toyota Platinum Etios Photo Gallery

Toyota Kirloskar Motor launched the new Platinum Etios this week in India. Well, yes it's a facelifted model, meaning not a complete next-gen model. However, Toyota has brought in changes after taking substantial feedback from Indian consumers. Take a look at these pictures and let us know if these revisions are much desired or not.

The carmaker says it has changed its design direction for this model, which is now more sporty and elegant. We think it is evidently seen from the front fascia with a new bumper and revised grille.

The headlamps remain the same, but there is a new V-shaped grille with black honeycomb inserts. This, along with a chrome bezel near the fog lamps have definitely added to the appeal.

Coming on to the sides, the newly-designed alloy wheels and side skirts can be seen. The former for the Liva has been lifted from the Etios TRD Sportivo version that was sold earlier.

At the back there is a reworked bumper and an integrated spoiler in line with the Brasilian version. And that's about it. We would have loved to see some changes to the tail lamps.

Nevertheless, the changes as a part of the model life management cycle are majorly concerning the customer's requirements and safety.

So consumers have the option of opting for rear parking sensors. These have been intended to park the long vehicle in the tightest spaces with ease.

So, the primary focus has been on safety and thus Toyota has made ABS standard across all variants. Then the car is also equipped with dual front airbags and child seat locks.

The exercise also involves incorporating a host of new features in the cabin. The most evident being new fabric for the seats.

Sure the layout and dashboard mounted central placement of the instrument cluster remains the same, but a closer look reveals that it’s an updated semi-digital instrument cluster.

We've seen the Brasilian model that gets a touch screen unit for the audio system. However, our Indian model just gets a 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity even on the top end trim.

In the second row, there is now a fold-able rear arm rest. However, the most important change comes in the form of a three-point seatbelt.

Then there is a removable middle head rest offered as standard across all variants. It is designed to enhance comfort and reduce the injuries to the neck in case on a collision.

Toyota is also offering a new Isofix child seat lock that meets international safety standards. It is offered on all variants and comes with a secure and easy to fix design.

The Etios has always been known for its best-in-class boot space. The 592litre boot accommodates all the luggage needs with bags of different shapes and sizes.

For people who had set expectations very high, these changes might be perceived as disappointments. However, with Toyota's focus on safety, they have definitely pushed the envelope further.
