The braking and handling of Toyota Etios J is humble. There are a lot of things that are missing from the sedan. The major reason behind this is that because Toyota Etios J is a base variant and due to cost cutting many things have been chopped down from the mode. The handling of the car is okay but not spectacular as the car misses out on electric power steering. Apart from that, the suspension system of the car is nice, which comprise of McPherson Strut for the front and Torsion Beam for the rear axle. This makes sure that the drive in Toyota Etios J provided you a smooth and bump-free ride. The braking system is also good and comprises of ventilated disc brakes on the front and drum brakes at the rear. Sadly the car doesn’t feature ABS, EBD and brake assist thereby making the braking department a bit on the down side.
