Look and Style
Eye catching impressive good look. Colour and painting is classy. frontal, rear and total design and appearance of LIVA is simply beautiful. The frontal appearance makes LIVA a look of SEDAN where as rear is really classic hatchback, more spacious and delightful.
Very good size(3775 mm x 1695 mm x 1510 mm) with wheel base 2460 mm, ground clearance 170 mm is sufficient, Fuel Tank 45 litres is enough with goo turning circle radius 4.8 m with light weight like i10.
Body colour Door Handles and ORVM, Intermittent and Rear Wiper,Tube less Tyres with alloy wheels are extreemly good.
More than enough leg space, comfortable push backs even for tall and handsome three persons in rear seats though it is thin, good hand rests with cup space. foldable rear seats. 4 speakers in right places. good power windows for both front and rear, power steering with audio control is better than other hatchbacks in similar range, smooth handing of gear, easy leg space for clutch, brakes. Also centrally located Tech and speed meters for good driving control. Single long wiper is good for the Driver but not for other front seater. The good large tyres with ABS makes us confortable driving in any speed and terrain and Dual SRS AIRBAGS for Frontal Passanger and Driver in LIVA in top Two varients. These are not made available in few higher varients of other 1.20 litre cars.
The Boot space of 251 ltrs is comparatively enough in relation to other cars. The front cabin lights, central locking,rear defogger audio system with remote, sun visors with mirror, rear wiper with washers are other comforts.
The Head rest for both front and rear are comfortable and relaxful.
LIVA is having very good Pickup in long elevated road streep even in top gears which can not be experienced in cars like Hyundai i20 and others. However for city traffic we have to go in lower gears only. The Engine 1.2 L with 80 PS@ 5600rmp (torque 104 nm@ 3100 rpm) is good enough for LIVA, however it is not equal to ETIOS which is 1.5 L Engine.
The fuel efficieny as per ARAI 18.31 is better than Swift and many other cars in its equal range. In city limits we may get average normal mileage between 14-5 to 16 Kmpl. For long journey, we may get 18 to 18.5 kmpl.
A good family hatchback with TOYATO Brand with excellent after sales service. Effortless to drive within the city, safe handling with Super light facility
Well Tuned suspension . ABS, EBD and Airbags in top variants which is optional in middle varient.
Spacious Interiors which can accommodate 5 persons easily
Needs to improve
Controlling of Road Noises , Improve in Insulation , Engine and suspension and Interiors are of economical range and it can be improved to TOYOTA Standard.(Engine capacity may be improved since Etios is 1.5 where as ETIOS LIVA is 1.2)
Areas of Improvement needed in :
Some of the equipments like child lock facility, climate control, height adjustable driver seat, alloy spare wheel etc has to be provided for top varients atleast.
TOYOTA Hatch back ETIOS LIVA is having all the standard features of good performance and appearance and it will make the owner to feel proud of having TOYOTA Brand ( The seventh one among the Top Most BRAND cars in the world).
The excellent Mileage with good safety covers which are not available in top varients of many of the other cars and TOYOTA is named for post sale service.
