The Etios Liva is the hatchback version of the Etios Sedan. The car was designed solely for the Indian market but is also sold overseas as well. The Etios was first showcased at the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo and was then launched a year later. The Etios Liva competes with other hatches such as the Hyundai i10, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Honda Brio and Tata Indica. The Etios Liva comes with petrol and diesel variants in different trim levels.
The Etios Liva is basically the hatchback version of the Etios and they share the same design pattern. There is a large and prominent front grille with chrome lining. Then there are the attractive headlamps and the sharp lines along the body. The wheels get very nice 12-spoke alloys. The overall design is contemporary, but not the best looking for sure. The car is well under 4metres in length and it also has a decent ground clearance of 170mm, making it perfect for city use.

Good bits: space, driveability in city, light clutch, quick acceleration, good suspension. Bad bits: cheap plastics, no illumination of switches, no power lock buttons, loose plastics on steering column.The car is good to drive in city considering its low end torque,light clutch, and strong suspension, that can pull through most of the speed breakers without letting you know. the light half travel clutch is smooth. The factory fitted media player is bare basic and is audible when windows are closed as soon as the windows are open, you have to put it near full to hear. also the bass is too poor. AC is good. There is no gaskets/rubber lining on the bodypanel inside the door frames, as a result, too much dust gets accumulated inside the car quite often.A bare basic city car, at affordable price with Toyota branding and quality.

I bought this in Aug. This car is cool and very good. When I drive this Car, believe me I forget about Swift, do not look over on the interior, this car is very comfortable also. And most important things is milage, near about 20.5 with A/c on.

Toyota Etios Liva is an under hyped car. Probably because of the so so exteriors and lesser color options. But feature wise it is exceptional. I feel it is actually under priced if you consider it as a package. An optimum powered diesel engine with a mileage of almost 22KMPH with AC. Very powerful AC and what I loved about this car the most is the comfort you get at the back seat. Even with 3 people sitting, it is very comfortable. Interiors are simple yet effective. pick up is good and the first time I rode it was on a hilly area and the acceleration impressed me. Being a diesel engine, noise exists but it is less than other diesel cars in the same category. If you are thinking of buying a diesel hatchback and you budget is around 6.5-7Lacs. I think this is the car. You can get the top model, fully loaded in this budget.

Having driven this car for more than 2000 km I feel it is a very good car. Exterior styling is good(though the Swift is better). Aerodynamic shape, nice appearance, good quality paint job. Interiors are a weak point in terms of the plastics used. The centrally placed speedometer/odometer feels funny at first but is actually more convenient than the normal speed for which you have to take your eyes off the road. The absence of a tacho is definitely annoying! The number of cup-holders is amazing; lots of space behind the gear for keeping knickknacks. The dash has a square depression in front of the co-driver. which is a great place to keep cell-phones etc which do not fall-off during turns. The interior space esp in the rear seat is amazing... probably best in class !! The presence of an air-conditioned glove box is wonderful. You can keep two 2 litre bottles of Pepsi cold in it for those long trips!! Overall a lot of thought has gone into making the interiors very convenient. The AC is great(definitely better than Swift Dzire). Suspension over bad roads feels great. Low-gear driving in city traffic is what this car is suited for. However overtaking on the highway with fast vehicles coming from the other side, is a bit problematic. Cabin noise while driving is present but that is probably true of all diesel cars; it is not a problem. Boot space is good...better than Ritz/Swift; Figo however has more boot space(20 litres more). Fuel efficiency on the highway with AC on all the time- 22 kmpl. Overall it is superb package.

I bought one Etios liva expecting as quality like Innova. But the ethos surprised me with low quality plastics,poor quality door pads,local seats etc. Now my family as a whole is hating Toyota because of this. I now wants to dispose this car because I am unable to take this vehicle to club or even for function as I am loosing my image. I expect others also should not be fooled by Toyota.

The car is absolutely stunning, specially in Blue and Red colors. The design is such that it slowly grows on you. I am one of the first customers of Etios Liva and am very happy to be one. The biggest forte of this car is the space it comes with. 5 people can sit in easily and lots of space is there to stretch legs. The seats are slim but comfortable and AC performance is great. The interiors are not as great as of some some other cars in this category, but i believe this is still a better car to own. The drive is smooth and the car can easily be driven in any gear even at low speeds. Add the Totota reliability and this becomes a great package. All in all, it is a perfect family car that has space, practicality and sense together. I strongly reccomend this car. After all, its a Toyota.
