Braking & Handling

Ed's take: The ride on the Etios Liva is well sorted at low speeds. It glides over potholes with a muted thud. The handling is better on the Liva as it has a shorter wheelbase, but it does get a bit jittery and unsettled at higher speeds.

While the G trim has aspects like a keyless entry function along with an option to incorporate anti lock braking system with electronic brake force distribution.
