Pros : Exteriors are awesome, catchy, good design and colours,above average interior spce and boot space

Cons : Interiors looks,plastic, AC vents/control to be improved

Look and Style Eye catching impressive  good look. Colour and painting is classy. frontal, rear and total design and  appearance of LIVA is simply beautiful. The frontal appearance makes LIVA a look of SEDAN where as rear is really classic hatchback, more spacious and delightful. Very good size(3775 mm x 1695 mm x 1510 mm) with wheel base 2460 mm, ground clearance 170 mm is sufficient, Fuel Tank  45 litres is enough with goo turning circle radius 4.8 m with light weight like i10. Body colour Door Handles and ORVM, Intermittent and Rear Wiper,Tube less Tyres with alloy wheels are extreemly good. Comfort More than enough leg space, comfortable push backs even for tall and handsome three persons in rear seats though it is thin, good hand rests with cup space. foldable rear seats. 4 speakers in right  places. good power windows for both front and rear, power steering with audio control is better than other hatchbacks in similar range,  smooth handing  of gear, easy leg space for clutch, brakes. Also centrally located Tech and speed  meters for good driving control. Single long wiper is good for the Driver but not for other front seater. The good large tyres with ABS makes us confortable driving in any speed and terrain and Dual SRS AIRBAGS for Frontal Passanger and Driver in LIVA  in top Two varients. These are not made available in few higher varients of other 1.20 litre cars. The Boot space of 251 ltrs is comparatively enough in relation to other cars. The front cabin lights,  central locking,rear defogger audio system with remote, sun visors with mirror, rear wiper with washers  are other comforts. The Head rest for both front and rear are comfortable and relaxful. Pickup LIVA is having very good Pickup in long elevated road streep even in top gears which can not be experienced in cars like Hyundai i20 and others. However for city traffic we have to go in lower gears only. The Engine 1.2 L with 80 PS@ 5600rmp (torque 104 nm@ 3100 rpm) is good enough for LIVA, however it is not equal to ETIOS which is 1.5 L Engine. Mileage The fuel efficieny as per ARAI 18.31 is better than Swift and many other cars in its equal range. In city limits  we may get average normal mileage between 14-5 to 16 Kmpl. For  long journey,  we may get 18 to 18.5 kmpl. Best Features A good family hatchback with TOYATO Brand with excellent after sales service. Effortless to drive within the city, safe handling  with Super light facility Well Tuned suspension . ABS, EBD and Airbags in top variants which is optional  in middle varient. Spacious Interiors which can accommodate 5 persons easily Needs to improve Controlling of Road Noises , Improve in Insulation , Engine and suspension and Interiors are of economical range and it can be improved to  TOYOTA Standard.(Engine capacity may be improved since Etios is 1.5 where as ETIOS  LIVA is 1.2) Areas of Improvement needed in : Some of the equipments like child lock facility, climate control, height adjustable driver seat, alloy spare wheel etc  has to be provided for top varients  atleast. Overall Experience TOYOTA Hatch back  ETIOS LIVA  is having all the standard features of  good performance and appearance and it will make the owner  to feel proud of having TOYOTA  Brand ( The seventh one among the Top Most BRAND cars in the world). The excellent Mileage with good safety covers  which are not available in top varients  of many of the other cars and TOYOTA is named for  post sale service.
