Toyota Etios User Reviews

Reviewed on May 21, 2011

Rated 1.0/5

Toyota wanted to make Etios cheaper but they ended up making a cheap Car. 1)Luxury We buy sedan for social status and the driving comfort and safety of passengers. But in Etios there is no luxury. 2)Comfort High levels of Noise in the passenger cabin from engine. High levels of noise inside the passenger cabin from Road. High levels of Vibration felt at steering, Instrument panel, arm rest, and seats. Petrol engine sounds like Diesel fuel driven vehicle. No speakers in the rear. 3)Performance The weight of the vehicle is only 930Kg. Low mileage irrespective of high performance engine. Low mileage irrespective of light weight body. 4)Safety Higher NVH levels can lead to fatigue and tiredness to passengers. Higher vibration levels can make driver impulsive and lead to accidents. Low weight of vehicle makes it unstable at high speeds. 5) Style The car looks average from the looks and you have to pay to get the radiator chrome grill installed to make it stylish. Toyota can not produce cars below INR 10 Lakh Whenever we talk about the problems being faced in Etios, the dealership people answer that since the price of Etios is kept low Toyota could not provide any luxury feature and even compromised on the material used in making the car. The inteior itself is worth discriminating, the floor mat also looks thinner and of lower grade, the EPDM gaskets are removed from all the four doors. The absence of gasket makes it convenient for insects, cockroaches, ants, spiders and lizards to get inside the vehicle as soon as the door is opened. The interior area of the cabin trapped between the frame and door is always dirty even though the vehicle is cleaned from outside. After spending a hefty 7.5Lakh plus the Etios is not able to deliver the Comfort, luxury and the pride that comes with the brand. Etios model V and VX are disasters and there is hardly any significant luxury parameter to distinguish the two variants. Etios fails to impress because of noise and vibrations from the engine caused due to poor quality of the engine and further reduction in the dampers used to suppress the sound and vibrations emanating from the Engine. Are we buying Etios because it is cheaper? No certainly not. We are buying because of the brand and trust associated with Toyota. Toyota has made Etios Cheap in Quality in an attempt to make it Cheaper. The cost cutting is very much evident as no Luxury feature is present in the car and even the basics of designing a good vehicle have been ignore by compromising in using good quality material to make the interior passenger cabin comfortable and vibration free. In an attempt to reduce price the gaskets are also removed In Etios which makes the dust and dirt trapped in between the door and body and also make room for lizards, insects, cockroaches etc.
