Etios Cross highlights
February 11, 2016: A special edition of the Toyota Etios Cross named “Dynamique” is slated to be launched in India, soon. The upcoming crossover hatchback will remain mechanically unchanged, but will incorporate aesthetic and feature updates on the outside and inside of the car. Speaking of the updates, the new car will incorporate black-finished door handles and wing mirrors. The roof rails of the car will also flaunt black inserts and the c-pillar of the crossover hatch will flaunt a ‘Dynamique’ badge. Toyota will offer this iteration of Etios Cross in two colour schemes viz. Inferno Orange and White. This update will help the automaker provide a dual-tone cabin upholstery, which is exclusive to the colour scheme selected for the body of the car.
The Toyota Etios is an absolutely wonderful family car. The car may be down-to-earth in the looks department but the running of the car is smooth as "maska", no jerks and no jolts. The steering of the car is very easy and light enough for even a young girl to drive comfortably. The car can be very easily turned around even in small places. Etios gives an excellent mileage. The storage place (dicky) is amazingly large for a car so small. It can take 2 large suitcases and one medium sized read more 3
Look and Style If we think of a compact suv then it is having a bold and decent look on similar lines. The design is eye catchy and one can get lot of people attraction when on the move or still.
Comfort: Toyota Etios is all well with respect to interior comfort. It is more spacious and also the seats are adjustable which makes seating further comfortable.
Pickup: It is quite good for city but highways are the thing that puts it to a real test. Excellent for highways.

If there was something lacking in the Etios Liva, it was a fair bit of flamboyance. It?s got a reliable drivetrain, a sorted chassis and decent driving manners, but the styling won't be a major highlight on its resume.But Toyota has nearly acknowledged that, and has now come up with a change. But hold on, it's not a mid-life update or a facelift. Toyota is aiming at making a 'new' crossover out of this compact city hatch.How, you ask? First, it has slapped on some serious plastic read more 4
Toyota joined the cross-hatch league with the Etios Cross in May 2014. This Etios Liva-based beefed-up hatchback was launched nearly three years after the introduction of the hatch in the Indian market. At the time of launch, the Etios Cross had just one competitor, the Volkswagen Cross Polo, since the vehicle that started the segment in the country, the Skoda Fabia Scout, was discontinued long back. In the present scenario, Toyota recently updated the Etios range in India both inside and out, however, the Cross remained unaltered. That said, it has borrowed a few features from the updated models without carrying any aesthetic changes. Let us see what it has to offer in the cross-hatch segment, which features vehicles such as the Hyundai i20 Active, Fiat Avventura and the Cross Polo.
Things We Like in Etios Cross
Appreciable standard safety features – dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, front seat belts with pre-tensioners, ISOFIX child seat mounts and three-point seatbelt for the rear middle passenger
The Etios Cross 1.5-litre petrol is only second to the Fiat Avventura/Urban Cross 1.4-litre T-JET when it comes to engine performance
Spacious cabin with absolutely flat rear floor, similar to the Etios Liva
More road presence than the Liva as it is slightly longer, wider and taller, and also rides 4mm higher
Things We Don't Like in Etios Cross
Missing features such as push button start-stop, touchscreen infotainment system, rear parking camera and others
It is also not spared from the Etios series’ low-rent feel
A 4mm lift in overall ground clearance is not enough; more lift would have been preferred, like the Fiat Avventura (205mm)
Unlike the Liva, the Cross has not received any aesthetic changes and has started to show its age. In fact, the entire Etios series is ageing
Stand Out Features
15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels
Only car in the segment to offer standard dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and front seat belts with pre-tensioners across all its variants
After the initial hype, this cross-hatch segment is dwindling in terms of sales as customers are inclined towards similarly priced sub-4m SUVs. Also, Toyota has not given any aesthetic upgrades to the Etios Cross since its launch, unlike the Etios sedan and the Etios Liva. The company need to bring a compact SUV or update the Cross’ aesthetics to come back in the game in this price range.
"The punchy 1.5-litre petrol of the Etios Cross is definitely one of the best offerings in its segment in terms of performance and safety. "
We Indians love SUVs; we drool over any vehicle with the mildest hint of SUV-ism and would love to own true blue SUVs except for the price deterrent. Most SUVs are expensive and out of budget for the average buyer which makes us drift towards pseudo SUVs or soft roaders or any vehicle with an SUV badge within...
With the growing market for compact SUV market, several manufacturers want to cash in this new segment and they are now introducing even a cross-country version of their existing hatchbacks. The first one to do so was Volkswagen with the Cross Polo, then Fiat and Toyota showcased their versions of the cross c...
