Detailed Toyota Etios Liva Review

What's Good?

I purchased this car (Etios Liva Diesel-Tn-18-U-3013) from M/s. Lanson Toyota,Chennai on 24th June 2013.The dealer is very customer friendly, prompt and I personally rate their service the best.I have driven so far 4100 Kms. The car has a very refined diesel engine. It is very smooth with a decent torque. The NVH level is reasonably OK inside the cabin. The gear shift position is comfortable and operation of the gears are very smooth and precise. The overall engine performance is fine.The upholstery is of better feel and quality. The inside cabin space is very roomier, especially the very spacious legroom with flat flooring behind. The up and down driver seat adjustment is very useful. The power steering is very smooth and best in class. Real toyota quality. The overall build quality of the car is good. The exterior paint quality is decent.

What can improve?

The front and rear suspension is very jerky and needs refinement. The overall quality of the plastics used in the car is very average. For a price Rs.7,02,012/- toyota should provide a better quality. No. RPM meter,heat gauge and alarm warning for seat belts which are standard offering even in Tata make cars. Behind there is Only one side reverse gear light. Not very easy and comfortable to get in and get out of the car because of low seating type. The Rear seat parcel tray is straight and slippery resulting in things kept there falling with the slightest braking. A feature less car and cost cutting is very evident.

Overall Comments

should come out with more colours in future.

Very average with poor plastics


Look at Hyundai i20 and improve further in features.
