    if so toyota should improve the features, brand name will not help them in their sales

    not better than i20 but as good as i20.. has a good space and comfort.... much much better than swift and Dzire...

    The comments given here are baseless. This type of review is very obviuos, because the people are going to Toyota showroom for test drive with very high expectations. Then big disappointment. The car is best in all respect if you look at the price tag, car design/space, comfort, and performance. In Rs. 6 lacs range, you are getting a good looking, reliable, standard sedan, and a reputed brand. If you are disappointed with etios, then test drive Corolla Altis and be ready to spend equally good money.

    amit |18 Jan,2011 11:09:10 AM

    u r right

    amit |18 Jan,2011 11:11:17 AM

    i means reply by Jguru is right those u compare quality in six lakh go for altis then

    Amber_Naik |04 Feb,2011 02:33:53 PM

    yeah u r ryt amit.. U cant get such good features in 6 lakhs... The car is much much better than Dzire... by the way doesnt swift petrol make engine noise like Etios? It is... Engine noise should be controlled by toyota but I love it as it sounds like sports car... I got my delivery yesterday and already drove about 400km and mileage is good.. i got 18.5 on highway....

    tom |07 Feb,2011 11:21:35 PM

    the car gives about 17 on highway! how you got 18.5????? pls explain,may be toyota dint put correct mileage results?

  • S Joardar |23 Jan,2011 03:52:09 PM

    How's the vehicle in comparison to Swift Desire??? Or for that matter Honda City... can some one throw some more light on the issues being discussed in the forum..What about the ground clearance of the Etios compared to the City??

    priyangshu |30 Jan,2011 11:49:13 PM

    etios even not near to swift dzire city is far ahead from it.

    Amber_Naik |04 Feb,2011 02:36:09 PM

    Its much better than Dzire.. but city is far ahead... But u cant get such a good sedan in 6 lakhs... its much much better than Dzire.. I have both swift Dzire and etios.. but Etios is much better....

    tom |07 Feb,2011 11:19:55 PM

    dont ever compare the Etios to the honda city! the city is far better

    VS |31 Jul,2011 09:29:27 PM

    Honda city has kneed down in price war strating from 7.49 now. its poer of etios

  • nitin |24 Jan,2011 06:36:32 PM

    best petrol car in the price of rs 6 lacs features perfect according to the cost

  • CarDekho Team |27 Jan,2011 12:44:23 PM

    The Toyota Etios is the latest king of the 6-7lakh sedan car segment. Its a very well made car with an superb engine and good fit finish. The efficiency is also high on the Etios and so is the comfort level. Thanks, CarDekho Team

  • jisha |28 Jan,2011 09:02:42 PM

    **Really its not worth going for toyota etios as told my many others its got just brand name nothing inside i request you all to see the interiors,,engine noise ,etc before making any comment i went for booking later i changed since its not worth for your hard earned money

    priyangshu |30 Jan,2011 11:55:21 PM

    Totally agree car making for Indians only. With price tag of 6lakh this car really except brand name not worth

  • Dr Ravi Gupta |31 Jan,2011 08:53:09 PM

    How does etios compare with Hyundai Accent, which is available for cheaper price and nice interiors with 1497cc engine

    CarDekho Team |01 Feb,2011 11:53:21 AM

    Dear User, Wew would like to inform you that Toyota Etios is a good option as compared to Hyundai Accent. Interior space of Toyota Etios is more as compared to Hyundai Accent. Toyota Etios is more stylish and a fresh entry in its segment range,but its cost is more as compared to Hyundai Accent. Thanks

    Pathikrit Naha |23 Apr,2011 08:31:02 PM

    Do not compare with accent, in totality its a bad car, Etios is much much ahead but suppy is really poor.

  • Amber_Naik |04 Feb,2011 02:40:33 PM

    To all those who are commenting in favour of dzire.... Etios is much better than dzire in terms of comfort and performance... only drawback is the engine noise.... And by the way Toyota gives you better service and better car than Maruti Suzuki.... Engines are much better than Maruti cars... Simply dont compare an ordinary brand with toyota... ;)

    priyangshu |05 Feb,2011 11:37:13 PM

    Maruti is not an ordinary brand in india. They are just perfect to to indian conditions. A car will be brought in villages also not only in cities.Maruti is best in India followed by Hyundai. Toyota may be in Europe not in India.Toyata has only one dealership to give ASS in some states.Who will drive a car 500 to 800 km for A.S.S. ETIOS no way Better than disire with a proven engine and fual efficiency.Now petrol prices are going up day by day Dzire has option of diesel. If you talk about gigh end models of etios its costly then dizire petrol's. Base version of ETIOS is a same from toyota without power steering. Total wastage no worth no power window no power steering, no central locking for a car of 5 laskh. What they think of us Indians?? Only for a brand name one will invest 5 lakh OTR ???

  • Sanjeev |06 Feb,2011 10:08:54 PM

    Test driven Toyota Etios VX (Today - 6 Feb 2011). Really disappointing. Not the one expected from Toyota. Well it seems they have not understood the Indian customer. The car is like the INDICA (10 Yrs ago), Cheap plastics inside, interior color combination distastefull (red with silver and black button in door) - It seems the interior design guys were not paid well. Dashbord like the Nano (Man it is not a 1 lac Car). The speedometer looks as it toyota is making car for the first time. But i appreciate the engine - good minus the sound(Toyota justification - sporty ) I don't think SPORTY means loud sound without the required power and driving dynamics. Spacious - Only Saving Grace. Well the list will go on. I would request prospective buyers to really test drive the car along with other similar brands like Honda (Owns), Hyundai, Ford, volkswagen (haven't test diven) before making any decision.

  • tom |07 Feb,2011 11:27:32 PM

    i am shocked at the reviews of the toyota etois! thought toyota could have given much better interiors and engine! must have been a hastily design! the manza will be a much better car than the etois! lets hope ford launches the new fiesta soon! and knock some sense into the etios crazy bookings!

    priyangshu |09 Feb,2011 09:56:26 PM

    if you really want an upgrade from dzire go for honda city , vento diesel is good don't go for petrol.

  • Alexander |22 Feb,2011 11:07:22 AM

    I havent the faintest idea about who writes the reviews for CARDEKHO and from where they are based, but here is a honest feedback for whoever has written the above review, the TOYOTA ETIOS reminds one of the Toyota Echo and not the Altis, The Echo for the information of all who havent heard of it has been discontinued from all other markets with the introduction of the YARIS, it is being introduced in the Indian Market after it was taken off most other markets worldwide. Apart from that , ENGINE & MAINTENANCE -this car is a work horse and doesnt need much maintenance, INTERIOR & EXTERIOR - the exterior and interior are very boxy and unappealing , the interior has a lot of places for storage, PRICE - At this price (5.2L to 6.2L) this is probably the best buy in the market. The car is slightly overpowered and has been involved in a lot accidents , so speedsters be wary.
