toyota etios diesel and toyota etios liva diesel launched


The diesel Toyota Etios sedan and Etios Liva hatchback have been launched today. Prices for the Toyota Etios sedan start at Rs 6.45 lakh, ex-showroom, while the diesel Etios Liva hatchback will be available from Rs 5.55 lakh, ex-showroom. While the sedan will be available in three versions - G, V and VX, the Etios Liva hatch will be available only in a single trim level - G, but ABS will come as standard.


The Etios and Etios Liva are powerd by the same 1364 cc D4-D diesel engine, but with a fixed-geometry turbine, producing 68 PS of power and 170 Nm of torque, par for the course in the segment. As always, Toyota too claim that the diesel Etios twins will be the most fuel efficient in the segment. ARAI has ratified a fuel-efficiency figure of 23.59 kpl for the Etios Liva hatchback. The price premium is Rs 90,000 for the Etios sedan, while for the hatchback Liva it is Rs 95,000. Although the diesel Liva comes in a single variant only, the premium is higher because ABS comes as standard.


Interestingly, Toyota's head of marketing Sandeep Singh has said that the company is looking to educate its customers, to buy a diesel car only if their average monthly running is at least 2,000 km or more. The company is hedging its bets, and will produce the cars in a ratio of 60:40, with 60 % accounting for petrol cars.


The company aims to sell 63,000 units of the Etios and Etios Liva by the end of the year. So far, the company has produced 33,000 untis this year.
