Full Review

Exterior: Very good design, however the Rugged Finished plastic body quality could have been much better.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort): Huge space, once i have driven the car with 6 people, of which 4 were fat..  Nice experience on Long drives..  Nice Interiors. But lacks Bluetooth and volume control in stearing in this varient- Wrong decision by Toyota . No seat belt adjustment- once again wrong planning or stingy decision..

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox- Gear shift is very smooth, First car to drive but got a 15.5 on a long drive with AC. 

Ride Quality & Handling: Gear ratio for second gear could have beet better, as it lacks power and stops on small spead breakers. Had to shift to First gear in many places which is quite Inconvenient.

Final Words Low power in second gear may be to improve the milage in local drive, may be a good move but people drive on bad road would have tought time..

Areas of improvement No Safety feature like ABS or Airbag option even for extra cost. Which is a biggest wrong decision by a Auto company. Cheap decisions.. Giving as a option for 1.5L Variant.

Bluetooth, Volume control on stearing are the difference between 1.2 L and 1.5L Variant. Once again cheap decisions by Totota I am happy to pay another 1-2K extra to get this feature fitted outside, but cannot match with company fitted models.. It they had to consider these features, it would be a bare minimum cost.

In net some one in the marketting guy of Toyota company has screwed up 1.2L variant with no options and making these minor as a difference factors for 1.5L variant. I doubt people would upgrade for these reasons.

Very useful review. Thanks.

The models that come now however has Airbag as standard and Etios Cross G version also comes with Electronically Adjustable ORVMs. (As told by a Sales person in Ravindu Toyota Bangalore). Not exactly sure what other features have they added but there are a few additions I believe.
