Etios Liva design is average

By Sasi Menon on 29 June 2011

Frankly speaking, I feel the design of the Etios (both sedan and Liva) are very average and are not attractive at all. There is a lot of clutter in the form with too many unresolved elements. Its too unrefined for my taste and lacks finesse. Even the proportions of the cars are not great. For example, the chrome strip on the bootlid looks 'just about ok' in the sedan but it looks completely out of place in the Liva. The front bumper and grille (with the sweeping design) do not match each other. Somewhere, the design is 'sharp', but at other places it is 'soft'. Overall, it doesn't add up to a smooth form. Very average and unexciting. Even the wheel arches are too big for the wheels (like how it used to be in the Indica).
But knowing the average Indian consumer, these cars will be a success, as the Toyota brand name itself is enough. After all, Toyota came into India with the ugly Qualis and made it a household name!
