The wait is finally over for Toyota fans who have desperately waited for the Japanese four-wheeler giant to come up with a mass-market model.

Available in both petrol and engine, Toyota Etios comes in variants like J, G, G SP, V VX (petrol) and D-4D GD, D-4D GD SP, D-4D VD and D-4D VXD (diesel).
The petrol-driven Toyota Etios is equipped with a 2NR-FE, gasoline, 4-cylinder, 16 valve DOHC engine that delivers 88.7 bhp at 5600 rpm and best-in-class torque of 132 Nm at 3000 rpm. The diesel variants boast of 1ND-TV, 4-Cylinder 8V SOHC, D-4D engine that dispenses 67.09 bhp at 3800 rpm and 170 Nm of torque at 1800-2400 rpm. Both the engine variants are mated with 5-speed manual transmission and conform to the Bharat IV emission norm.
On the suspension front, the sedan is armed with MacPherson strut while the rear end comes rigged with torsion beam suspension that offers exceptional comfort and stability.
Exterior and Interior:
The distinctive sculpted lines, bold and strong front bumper, ‘smiling’ front grille’ and aesthetically crafted side-skirts are a few things that you would notice about the car that just adds character to the sedan and hikes its visual appeal.
Internally, the sedan is outfitted with a stylish leather steering wheel, EPS with tilt, 2 DIN DVD audio with remote, spacious glove box, luggage space, comfortable rear floor, and a generous storage space.
The sedan offers the best safety as the car comes furnished with ABS with EBD, centre meter design, impact absorbing body structure and SRS airbags.
Toyota Etios is available in a host of interesting shades including White, Celestial Black, Harmony Beige, Serene Bluish Silver, Symphony Silver, and Vermillion Red.
A petrol driven Etios would cost you anywhere between 5.14 lacs to 7.18 lacs and a diesel variant would cost you 6.76 lacs to 8.23 lacs.
