Pros : amazing looks, great pricing

Cons : two pod engine mount give lot of viberation and low idling pulls back the performance at all gears,


Look and Style - Amazing Style, class of its own Comfort - Not so great Pickup - Lousy & Worst pick up at all gears Mileage -  Yet to be checked Best Features - Front Looks Needs to improve - Dash Board and rear appeal Overall Experience - OK, not exiting

    Toyota has used all the cheapest parts available in China and Korea and thrown safety of passengers to Winds .It was called echo in US and Indonesia basically built for low class people and Taxi catagory now they wanted to use the old dies so used massive funds in advertising for buying media people and planting stories like built for India ,making of Etios etc advertisements undercover of reviews by paid media. This hype will wear off once people find the care how low on safety .Just remember how many people in USA lost life on Lexus, Camry etc due to brake failures ,accelarator jamming ,engine bursting etc but as their aothorities forced Toyota to compensate and recall now toyota fearing GOVT backlash replacing evey vehicle but it can never happen in India

    My dealer called me that now Wait time for Etios in Mumbai is 2-3 Months. I do not beleive that, as just 2 weeks back it was 7-8 months. Can anyone confirm on this.

    Please advise Dear Sir, I am a senior executive in private sector & decided to buy mid segment premium car as my daily usage is around 15-20 Km a day in Delhi.Great look, reputation ,cost effectiveness, value for money is my main consideration. I was planning to buy Etios but heard that this light weight sedan(only just over 900 KG)with inferior QUALITY interiors and single wiper with poor quality of doors without any insulation , Low milage can cost me dear in future, hence confused , opted for Desire , but since the new model on the way i am hesitant to go for it. I liked the look of Etios & performance of Desire .Therefore, please advise as i am open for the both i.e Desire VXI & Etios G Model keeping in view the cost of ownership like servicing, cost of spare parts & the resale value will be low. Therefore, kindly advise as my budget is upto 6 Lacs. Thanks & regards! Rajeev Singal, FCS. New Delhi. # 9811069399.

    Hi Rajeev I own Etios for the past 2 months and it is just waste of money and I feel that I should have never owned this vehicle. The Engine is very noisy and car vibrates too much. There is no driving comfort. The doors are very light and handles are of poor quality. Interior is bad. It is a disaster.Not worth the money being charged. There is no luxury feature at this price. Maruti Dzire offers much more than Etios. The feature are also not there as compared to the amount of money spent. Overall it is not even at par with the performance standards of wagon R. Please discuss with your friends before getting emotionally inclined towards Toyota brand. Etios is from Toyota stable but is a black spot in terms of performance and clearly reflects the overconfidence of Toyota in designing the Engine.

    Go for Dezire. Toyota feels like Diesel car. I brought it 2 months back and I plan to sell it after an year.

    Hi Dr.Bhatia I have posted my serious comments abut Etios and these coments are made after observing the Etios for more than 60 days and also confirmed by the dealership technician after inspection and driving of vehicle. I own Etios for the past 2 months and it is just waste of money and I feel that I should have never owned this vehicle. The Engine is very noisy and car vibrates too much. There is no driving comfort. The doors are very light weight and handles are of poor quality. Interior is bad. It is a disaster.Not worth the money being charged. There is no luxury feature at this price. Maruti Dzire offers much more than Etios. The feature are also not there as compared to the amount of money spent.

    Etios is a poorly engineered Car. Indians must open their eyes and think wisely before buying this car. Please do not get misguided by Toyota brand.

    I have booked Etios G Opt and dealer informed that wihtin two month he will deliverd the car. The opinion is very much confused about to take delivery. I would like to know about the efficency of the engine of his car. Is the engine of Desire and Etios with same type?

  • MATHEWS |20 Apr,2011 04:00:54 PM

    This car is an insult to the Indians. Just observe the body and the interiors. The door panels even in the top end model is so flimsy that it like skin.Just press it and see the panels fitting.Toyota is believing that they can sell any crap to Indians just because of the TOYOTA badge. And the result, last month the waiting periode 8 months now less than 2 months. Why? the smart Indians with better choice canselling the booking

    about mileage of etios from owner's opinion

  • Rajesh |05 May,2011 10:40:13 PM

    Mileage is ok i have experienced arnd 16 km (including city high way), iam happy with avg, but what i have exprinced is engine noise, its been 25 days now after taking etios delivery. i mean u can feel the vibration & cranking sound if you drive slow or if you are just seating in car not driving also you can feel the cranking sound in the cabin, however u will not feel the same when u are driving .
