Toyota Etios Liva Mileage
Toyota Etios Liva Review
Toyota gained immense consideration after the launch of Etios sedan in December 2010, which also marked the turning point for the Japanese car maker in the Indian market. In the following year, Toyota Etios Liva was introduced and it helped Toyota establish itself in the numbers game as well. The Liva was built on the same platform and looked identical except for the missing boot. Like its sedan sibling, the Liva also has undergone many changes, the latest being in September 2016.
The new Liva looks sharp thanks to the new sculpted bumper and the restyled grille. The new fascia makes the car look premium. Since it is a facelift, the body shell is the same and so is the profile. The tail gate has also been carried forward but the rear bumper gets a few additional curves.
Like its sedan version, the Liva hatchback is quite spacious. The interiors are comfortable and come in dark grey shade. In base variants, Liva features a digital trip meter, three-spoke steering wheel, an assist grip with coat hook, day/night inside rear view mirror, AC with heater, power steering, 7 bottle holders, remote fuel lid and clean air filter. The centrally mounted instrument console now gets a digital tachometer and reads out a host of information for the driver as well as other occupants in the car. The top variants feature cooled glove box, new seat fabric, digital clock and comb meter with new LCD display. The 2-DIN stereo system having AUX, Bluetooth and USB with remote is same as featured in the Etios sedan.
Toyota Etios Liva is one of the most power-packed hatchbacks of its kind. The petrol version of Etios comes equipped with a 1.2-litre engine that produces a maximum power output of 79bhp with peak torque of 104Nm. The diesel variant of Liva gets the same 1.4-litre diesel engine from the Etios, rolling out a maximum power of 67bhp with 170Nm of peak torque. Both engine come mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
The front wheels feature ventilated discs while the rear ones have drum brakes. The mid-level variant of Etios Liva feature ABS with EBD as standard feature. The safety features include two airbags (driver and passenger), ABS (Anti-lock brake system) with EBD (Electronic brake-force distribution) and energy absorbing body shell.
This hatchback is ranked among one of the most powerful as well as spacious cars and gives competition to the Hyundai Grand i10, Tata Bolt and Maruti Suzuki Swift.
