As Toyota has promised to provide a world class technology and quality, the Toyota Etios has it all. The design concept for the car is Bold Simplicity which is referred to affordable luxury and functionality in one machine. This car will have its competitors like Maruti Swift Dzire, Tata Manza and Hyundai Accent. Toyota India has planned to manufacture around 70,000 units of the car per year. With its small car Etios Liva, the company plans to acquire a 10 per cent market share in Indian compact cars segment before the end of 2011.
The suspensions are very much similar to Toyota Yari. The shock absorbers at front are independent MacPherson strut while the rear suspension is non-independent Torsion Beam. Having a weight of 930 kg, the frames of the cars are rigid and strong.
The Toyota Etios sedan is loaded with a new 1.5 litre petrol engine which will pump up 90 PS of power. The engine displacement is 1496 cm3(cc) and it promises peak power of 90PS at 5600 rpm and torque of 132 Nm at 3000 rpm. It is blessed with 5 Speed Manual type suspension. Hence we see that Toyota Etios makes no compromises with power. The engine acts as its power house and supply is made smooth through smart engineering. The model offers best torque in its class which adds to its utility.
Though the front face of the Toyota Etios is sharp and compact. the upper grille, lower grille and headlamps collectively make a shape of a face of human being that seems smiling with dimples (headlamps) at both end of lips (upper grille). The upper grille in chrome finish while the lower grille comes in black. Pearl white fog lamps are placed at both end of the lower grille. Rain wipers are provided at front and rear face. Standard rear side view mirrors are in body colour along with door handles, rear cowl and bumper.
Toyota Etios designers tried hard to give stunning looks to the interiors of Toyota Etios and as a result a creative kind of output can be seen. However, the company failed to provide it eye-catching and eye-soothing appearance. Dashboard is a conventional type that houses instrument panel in the centre which can be easily read out by rear passenger. AC vents are at both end of the dashboard. There is enough storage space at dashboard facing front passenger. A touch-screen audio-system is installed in the middle of the console along with operating switches. Additional steering mounted audio controls are there provided for the convenience of driver.
