Well..i planned to buy a car and was in big dilema to go for i20 or Etios. I visited Tirunelveli Etios showroom(Not happy with the way they treated me) also when i asked for the accessories that come along with the car(I checked this in toyata site before visiting showroom), the sales representative told me that there is no free accessorices as mentioned in the toyata site and everything would be chargable. I AM NOT CERTAINLY OK FOR SAYING THAT WEBSITE HAS FALSE INFORMATION. I went to Hyundai, Tly. I saw a coupld of toyata cars parked in Hyundai campus and when i was shocked when enquired about this, they said that the owner of etios has come to sell this car within 3 months of purchase. Complaints - Poor Milage(8 KM/L), Heavy Noice, VIBRATION. also there was one more toyata(Liva) which was purchased just before 45 days was waiting for resale. i am not saying other vechicles are very good..but just think twice before investing a big amount in Etios...when i surfed for ETIOS now..i see many customer complaining about the milage and noise and vibration. i guess the noise and vibration is coming because of the car weight, the weight is less when comparing to other vechicles because of cost cutting and this takes to vibration and noise when we go for long drive

There are no issues with the body of the Etios, the car drives and handles well on Indian roads.
lpg kits are approved via govt of india. UNITAX is best bec its cheaper kit and isi approved only cost 9000rs from 900cc to 1500cc vahicals + 2500rs extra for government approval on your RC.
u can install lpg kit in any patrol car.
etios is just a entry level sedan in Australia ppl do lpg conversation on almost every high end cars like ford falcon holden commodor toyota camery etc. bec lpg is cheaper.
and 100% taxis run on lpg I had a toyota Rav4 fitted with Lpg converson kit.
Both Toyota Etios and Swift Dzire are good options, while the Etios has space, Swift certainly has a powerful engine, better interiors and after sales services. The Dzire also enjoys better resale value.
