Toyota to launch the facelifted Etios in India tomorrow

Toyota to launch the facelifted Etios in India tomorrow

Toyota will reveal the facelifted avatar of its Etios sedan and the Liva hatchback in India tomorrow. The carmaker will then officially announce the variant-wise prices of the cars at an event in Bangalore.

The Etios facelift boasts of a new V-shaped grille with black honeycomb inserts, a chrome bezel near the fog lamps and a refreshed front bumper. Coming on to the sides, newly-designed alloy wheels and side skirts can be seen. At the back there is a reworked bumper and an integrated spoiler in line with the Brasilian version.

Now let's give you a sneak peek into the interior of the new models. Both the Etios sedan and Liva hatchback get an updated semi-digital instrument cluster, but the layout and dashboard mounted central placement remains the same. The Indian model will get a 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity even on the top-of-the-line trim. This is unlike the Brasilian model that gets a touch screen system. Nevertheless, the car boasts of a dual tone grey and ivory dashboard and new fabric for the seats. Then the car is also expected to get safety features such as ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) and pre-tensioners.

As for the engine specifications, the 2016 Etios is expected to get the same petrol and diesel mills from the current models on sale. This includes the 1.5-litre petrol engine that churns 90bhp of power and 132Nm of torque. Then the oil-burner is a 1.4-litre diesel unit generating 68bhp of power and 170Nm torque. On the transmission front, the five-speed manual gearbox will be offered on all models.

You may have already heard a lot about the latest iteration of the hatchback and sedan. We had shared the details of the refreshed cars that are already available through leaked brochure scans and spy shots. The uninitiated should however note that this is not a next-generation model but just an update to the existing car. We will let you know the prices of the variants as the car is launched tomorrow.
