Highlights

September 13, 2016: Toyota has updated the Etios sedan and it's now christened, ‘Platinum Etios’. The face-lifted Etios range starts at Rs 6.43 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). Toyota has given plenty of cosmetic changes to the Etios, but it is the front fascia that has changed the most. Mechanically, the Platinum Etios has remained unaltered and is powered by a 1.4-litre diesel (68PS, 170Nm) and a 1.5-litre petrol (90PS, 132Nm), with both engines mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. However, with retuned suspension setup, the updated Etios comes with improved ride and handling over the previous model. Toyota has also added additional features in the Platinum Etios such as digital tachometer and electronically foldable ORVMs, among others. In terms of safety, apart from the standard dual-front airbags, the Platinum Etios now comes with ABS and ISOFIX child-seat mount as standard across variants.

At the same time, its door trims and seat covers are done up in a dual-tone color scheme that renders a new look to the cabin. Apart from this, the overall design of its cabin remains largely unchanged. It is currently available with petrol and diesel engine options for the buyers to choose from. All the petrol trims are equipped with a 1.5-litre engine, while the diesel variants have a 1.4-litre mill. Both these engines have been mated with a five speed manual transmission gearbox. Its external appearance looks pretty decent, thanks to the dynamic chrome plated radiator grille, which is complimented by expressive lines on the bonnet.

However, all these trendy features are missing in the entry level variant. The top end variants have been bestowed with a set of stylish 15-inch alloy wheels, which adds to its urbane appeal. However, the remaining variants have been fitted with conventional steel wheels including full wheel covers. The rear profile too remains to be the same as its earlier version.

Interiors

Editor's take : The interiors of the Etios have undergone a major change. It now has adjustment head rest and even the quality of the product has been improved. Even though most of the changes on the vehicle there is still more scope for improvement. The instrument panel design doesn’t appeal to many.  

The design of the newly launched special edition looks pretty much similar to the existing variants. However, it gets wooden accents on its central console of dashboard and door panels. Furthermore, its seat covers and door trims are now in dual tone color scheme, which adds exclusivity to the interiors. Additionally, its central console is now housed with a touchscreen infotainment system that adds sophistication to the interiors.

Furthermore, the AC vent surround, center fascia and the gear shift lever gets a lot of chrome treatment, which emphasizes its exclusiveness. However, these aspects are given only to the top end variant only. In addition to these, the car maker is also offering the VX trim with a leather wrapped multi-functional steering wheel as standard . It has a three spoke steering wheel, which is now decorated with silver along with chrome inserts. Apart from these, all the remaining aspects have been retained from its outgoing model.

The main highlight of this sedan is its 595-litre boot compartment, which is perhaps the best in its segment. The car maker is offering this sedan with several utility based features including a cooled glove box, digital trip meter, front cabin lights and an assist grip with a coat hook.

Interior Comfort:

The car maker is currently offering this sedan series in three trim levels for the buyers to choose from.

Its entry level J trim has aspects like electric power assisted steering with tilt adjustment, front cabin lights, chilled glove box, digital tripmeter, seven bottle holders, front and rear door pockets, remote fuel-lid and tailgate opener, dual front sun visors and a day/night inside rear view mirror.

Toyota Platinum Etios Gear

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The acceleration by both the engines is good and there is no denying that it is indeed quick, especially the petrol.  

Both the petrol and diesel engines are mated with a five speed manual transmission gearbox. Its diesel variants have the ability to breach a 100 kmph speed mark in approximately 16 to 17 seconds. At the same time, it can achieve a top speed in the range of 160 to 165 Kmph. On the other hand, the petrol variants can accelerate towards a 100 kmph speed mark from a standstill in close to 15 seconds. It enables the vehicle to zoom towards a top speed of 155 kmph, which is quite good.

Toyota Platinum Etios Engine

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : The performance of the engine is good and the drivability factor is in place. There are no hiccups from the engine to pull at low engine speeds.

Its petrol variants have been equipped with a 1.5-litre power plant that has a displacement capacity of 1496cc. This DOHC based engine has 4-cylinders and 16-valves, which receives fuel through electronic injection system. This power plant has the ability to produce a maximum power of 88.73bhp at 5600rpm that results in a commanding torque output of 132Nm at just 3000rpm. On the other hand, its diesel variants have been fitted with a 1.4-litre D-4D power plant, which is integrated with common rail direct injection technology. It comprises of 4-cylinders and 8-valves based on single overhead camshaft valve configuration. This mill can produce a maximum power of 67.04bhp at 3800rpm and yields a peak torque output of 170Nm between 1800 to 2400rpm. Both these engines have been mated with an advanced five speed manual transmission gearbox, which allows front wheels to extract torque output.

Toyota Platinum Etios Mileage

Mileage

Editor's take : The Toyota Etios has good mileage on the petrol and even on the diesel powertrains. The oil burner is one the most frugal engines in today’s auto scene.  

This sedan series is available with the same petrol and diesel engine options. Its petrol engine is integrated with an advanced electronic fuel injection system, which contributes towards improving fuel efficiency. It helps this sedan to produce a maximum mileage of 16.78 Kmpl on highways, which goes down to a minimum of 12 Kmpl on city roads. While the D-4D diesel engine is incorporated with a common rail fuel injection technology. This power plant can give away a minimum mileage of approximately 18 kmpl on city roads, while producing a maximum mileage of 23.59 Kmpl on the expressways.

Power of Toyota Platinum Etios

Editor's take : On paper, it isn’t the power produced by the Etios that amazes us, it is the power to the weight ratio that makes it quick.

The diesel engine has 4-cylinders and 8-valves based on a SOHC valve configuration. This power plant can produce a maximum power of 67.04bhp in combination with a peak torque output of 170Nm. While the petrol version is based on double overhead camshaft valve configuration. This mill can pump out a commanding power of 88.73bhp and yields 132Nm.

Stereo & Accessories

Editor's take : The Etios gets an in-dash music system, with steering mounted audio controls with aux and USB connectivity.

The car maker is offering the mid range and top end variants with a 2-DIN music system that has a Radio and CD player with MP3 playback. It also has four speakers and port for USB devices. While the top end variant is also bestowed with an AUX-In socket and Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take :  The handling of the Etios is decent, however it has a well-balanced poise for good ride and handling characteristics.

This newly introduced sedan is bestowed with a proficient braking mechanism that works fine in any weather condition. Its front wheels are paired with a set of ventilated discs, whereas its rear ones have been mated with solid drum brakes. All the diesel variants have anti lock braking system including electronic brake force distribution, which certainly enhances this mechanism. However, this system is provided as an optional feature for the mid and top end petrol variants. Its front axle is fitted with a McPherson Strut while the rear axle is paired with torsion beam suspension system, which helps to keep this sedan well balanced. The car maker has also incorporated a highly responsive electric power assisted steering system, which supports a minimum turning radius of just 4.9 meters.

Toyota Platinum Etios Safety and Security

Safety & Security

Editor's take : The safety features on the Etios include ABS and airbags.

This sedan is available in three trim levels and all of them have been incorporated with important comfort features. Now, the car maker is also offering dual front airbags as standard for all the variants. The entry level variant has features like door ajar warning, a day/night inside rear view mirror, driver's seatbelt warning and an advanced engine immobilizer device . While the mid range variant have aspects like door ajar warning, headlight-on notification, ABS with EBD and keyless entry function. The car maker is now offering the top end variants with dual SRS airbags for front passengers including driver's seatbelt warning notification, which further enhances the safety quotient.

Wheels

The automaker has equipped the base and mid range variants with a set of conventional steel wheels, whereas the top end trim gets a set of 15-inch alloy wheels. These rims are covered with high performance tubeless radial tyres of size 185/60 R15.

Pros

1. After-sales service is quite satisfying.

2. Petrol engine performance is remarkable.

3. Inclusion of rear parking sensors adds to its advantage.

4. Boot compartment of 595-litre capacity is its big plus.

5. Price range is quite affordable.

 

Cons

1. More updates can be given to its exteriors.
