Exterior It’s simple & straight forward design without any bells & whistles like Elite-i20 Every one may not like it. But for me its ok looks always been second priority over reliability & function!
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Dash board design isn’t that great but it’s functional. I wish Toyota might have carried Toyota Yaris interiors for Liva.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Engine is refined clatter noise is minimum during idling its vocal only when you rev it hard during overtake. Engine tuning & gear ratio set for sedate drive & linear acceleration you will enjoy the flat torque & tall gearing while cruising at 80-120kmphLow speed drivability is very good. Clutch is on heavier side & also long pedal travel may cause leg pain is stuck traffic. Fuel economy 14-15kmpl is city, 18-19mpl on highway +single lane ride (where frequent shift needed most of the time) with 95% AC ON. Good braking .I highly appreciate Toyota for giving safety features as standard, Hope all car manufacturer adopts this without waiting for Govt. rule.
Ride Quality & Handling No complaint of ride quality. Its superb
Final Words Its value for money package with Safety feature .It got 4-Star rating in global nap test. I strongly recommend this. This car meant for those people who loves simplicity & reliability over jazzy and premium look and feel J
Areas of improvement Dash board to layout. Provide Toyota Yaris interior need speed sense door lock. Cabin insulation need to be improved. Lighter clutch is most welcome. Automatic diesel variant is most welcome.
