Pros : Looks, Mileage, Comfort, Performance

Cons : None

Look and Style I am fond of Toyota's cars, what I like the most about Toyota's cars is looks and style. The recently launched Toyota Etios is yet another sporty looking car, it has the style and class Toyota is known car. Toyota Etios is different from the conventional sedans present in the Indian auto market. What makes it different from the rest of the cars in the same segment is its overall appearance, from the sharp headlamps to sporty Chrome Ornament front grille and the black lower grille. Comfort Prior to buying Toyota Etios I had the opportunity to go for a test drive. The aesthetically designed Toyota Etios is a spacious car which offers enough legroom and comfort. The 13 liter air cooled glove box with seven bottle holders gives a luxurious feeling. Pickup Amongst all the cars I have possessed Toyota Etios is one car which has the best acceleration. The car equipped with 1.5 liter petrol engine which enables it to raech upto 180 kmph speed. Mileage When I bought the car I was told that the car will deliver a mileage of around 17-18 kmpl, however it is too early for me to comment on that. Best Features It is stylish, I like the overall appearance of the car. Most importantly you get all this and more at such a reasonable price. Needs to improve I have not come across any such thing which needs improvement , I think it is a good car to drive. Overall Experience I am extremely happy with the looks of the car, the icing on the cake is its performance. It is a good deal at such a reasonable price. I had names of some other cars in my mind too before I bought Toyota Etios. But I now I am happy that I bought this car, though it took some time to get the delivery.

    I've heard that you cannot adjust the driver seat in upward / downward direction in G-Safety model, is it true? Please advise.

  • Johnson |08 Mar,2011 11:18:03 PM

    The review is a one side. I heard that, the interior is not upto the mark which Toyota offers. I felt its a old Maruti 800 type inside the car. I am fond of Toyota due to its safety and style, but can not find the style inside the car.

  • anuj garg |09 Mar,2011 08:30:09 AM

    The interior is not as per the quality as toyota knows as a brand. When i see the interior i found that qulity is like as small cheep car.

  • narasimhan |09 Mar,2011 09:49:05 AM

    no diesel version?

  • Mainak Banerjee |09 Mar,2011 11:36:27 AM

    There are various cons of this car.The interior styling of this car doesnt give you a refined feeling.Comparing it to the stalwarts in this segment the Maruti Swift Dezire & Ford Fiesta ,Etios will never be the car to go for.It gives you a feeling of having to ride in a cheap car.

  • S.Ramakrishnan |09 Mar,2011 12:37:44 PM

    It is good to see the review. But I felt during my test drive that the smoothness of petrol engine is not experienced. Other words, vibration is coming from the engine.

  • uday |09 Mar,2011 12:54:52 PM

    The looks of car is not so adorable... the tail lamps look so OLD SCHOOL... Toyota Etios, people had more expectation than what toyota has delivered.. Compared to the price which is offered by Toyota, we could better go for VW Vento, with better style, comfort, design, look...

  • vijay |09 Mar,2011 02:46:16 PM

    I guess experience is always relative. Generally people compare the new car owned with the previous one they were driving. It would be nice if you may share with which car you were comparing on different aspects of pluses and minuses. It will give a better understanding of the car to the readers like me who is in process of finalising for a new car.

  • Amit Kumar |09 Mar,2011 04:12:04 PM

    Comfort is 0 in this Car. Was Excited about it but when I entered in it in a showroom I changed my mind.

  • BHAT MANZOOR |09 Mar,2011 06:36:22 PM

    The look of car is very beautiful & price is also affordable.definatly i will buy this car.The designer of the car has powerful brain I THINK so

  • yatin |10 Mar,2011 11:16:08 AM

    Yeh apko kis angle se sporty lag rahi hai.....sporty ka matlab bhi pta hai....curve lines toh aisi hai jaise koi 2k ki car se comparable nhi hai....

  • Mainak Banerjee |11 Mar,2011 02:44:44 AM

    had a test ride last week..what better place 2 test the car but the bumpy roads infront of the toyota showrum in uncle owns a swift diesel hatchback..i wud bet dat the engine of swift diesel is far more refined than the petrol etios..albeit i can comment that this car wil give pain 2 its owner after 3-4 yrs of rigorous driving..was vry excited when it was launched..but after the test ride i can say that i m utterly disappointed..nor does the looks of this car is aweinspiring..i can just say to the guys who plan 2 buy this car 'dikhawe pe maat jao..apni akal lagao'..thx..keep writing

  • Mainak Banerjee |11 Mar,2011 02:52:36 AM

    1 more thing guys..dis car is very vulnerable on bumpy roads at speeds around 75-80 kmph..i dont drive fast generally..but since it was a test ride,thought of giving it a full this price range maruti suzuki swift dezire is the leader in all perspective..moreover had a trembling feeling when i was going beyond 80..vento too is more preferable than the etios..the engine gives u a somewhat shaky unrefined feeling..etios is no way my first car choice..i am more concerned about engine troubles after 3-4 yrs..which will definitely haunt its owners..moreover the dealer facilities of toyota in kolkata is not dat widespread..

  • MUKUL SARAN |13 Mar,2011 08:13:05 PM

    Interiors of Etios are not at all up to the mark, gives a feeling as if you are inside a cheap car, could have been improved in the top end model, also a hand rest on the rear seat would have been great addition.

  • Savio |13 Mar,2011 08:55:58 PM

    The only success way out for Etios Toyota is to introduce two tone Beige/Brown foamy interiors with soft beige artificial leather finish seats. Than Toyota can maintain its logo dignity

  • valay |10 May,2011 02:24:01 PM

    just tell me can i book or not this car?
