Look and Style The car looks average from the looks and you have to pay to get the radiator chrome grill installed to make it stylish. Absence of EPDM gasket on all four Doors.The absence of gasket makes it convenient for insects, cockroaches, ants, spiders and lizards to get inside the vehicle as soon as the door is opened. The interior area of the cabin trapped between the frame and door is always dirty even though the vehicle is cleaned from outside. Comfort Engine sounds like a diesel engine-The engine sounds as if you have pressed pedal on a diesel vehicle. This is because of the poor acoustic insulation.It is as good as sitting in a diesel vehicle and paying the cost of petrol for running it. Horn Sounds more inside than outside -This is because of poor acoustic insulation in ETIOS that the sound of Horn is heard more inside the passenger cabin than outside. Mileage Mileage-The actual mileage of ETIOS in city conditions is not more than 10 kmpl. Needs to improve Strangely but true Toyota people try to escape the flaws in Etios by merely giving the excuse that it is priced less and that is why the problems are there. This is really insulting for the customer who has spent all his hard earned money for the Toyota brand. There is one more fact that all other Toyota vehicles were developed in Japan and have been launched worldwide in many countries and have undergone five or more than 5 modifications and in Toyota term it is called as generation which is mentioned in case of Corlla History on Toyota bharat website. Each generation is of approximately 5 years starting from 1966 -2011. Areas of improvement This is one of the reasons for Etios to fail because Etios is raw vehicle and and it requires 2-3 modifications/generations before the modifications can be adopted. We will have to wait till then. Overall Experience After spending a hefty 7.5Lakh plus the Etios is not able to deliver the Comfort, luxury and the pride that comes with the brand. Etios model V and VX are disasters and there is hardly any significant luxury parameter to distinguish the two variants. Etios fails to impress because of noise and vibrations from the engine caused due to poor quality of the engine and further reduction in the dampers used to suppress the sound and vibrations emanating from the Engine.
