I PURCHASED ETIOS LIVA PETROL 'V' Varient IN DEC-2016,HAS DRIVEN IT UP TO 3000KM.
Exterior MY RED COLOUR CAR LOOKS BOLD, STYLISH. I have satisfied with it.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) The BEST IN CLASS SPACE& & COMFORT. All the safety featurers are made available from BASE varient itself.Instrumentation is less as compared to HUNDAI & other cars but its optimum & all decreases complaints, Maintenence cost.Everything inside this car feels SOLID,eventhough Dash board is very simple (but functional). Plenty of storage places,cooled glove box, 1 lt bottle holder. On all the doors realy enhances comfort level.MUSIC System is Ordinary, if it is replaced.
With a Touch screen & option of having a rear camera exists then surely it will beat all its rivals.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox 1.2 lt Petrol engine is peppy & Responsive. Gear box is Superbly smooth,gear shifts are positive. Fuel economy is average, in city-13 km/lt,Highway-17 km/lt, OVERALL-15 km/lt approximately.
Ride Quality & Handling Ride Quality is outstanding probably the best in class. Handling is descent,steering is super smooth at low speed & at high speeds its quite accurate. Around the Corners there is considerable Bobyroll so fast cornering is not easy.
Final Words My overall experience is JUST FANTASTIC.
Areas of improvement Music system should be replaced with touch screen otherwise atleast OPTION OF REPLACING INNER REAR VIEW MIRROR BY A DISPLAY. SYSTEM SHOWING REAR VIEW FROM CAMERA. THIS SYSTEM SHOULD BE COVERED IN TOYOTA GENUINE ACCESERIES. Now they are telling that if we install this system from ouside shop, the WARRRANTY will be Hampered.
