Pros : Excellent ground clearance, nice suspension, comfortable interior.

Cons : Average looks, low mileage.

Look and Style Talking about the looks of new Toyota Etios Liva its much better than Chevrolet Beat and Maruti Wagon R, but not so great like Nissan Mirca. Over all it looks average with somewhat appearance of its sedan Etios Liva. Toyota Etios Liva price me Rs 5.99 lakh its top model. Pickup The pick up of the car is quite good, I have reached to the speed of 120 Kms in 2 seconds starting from zero. Mileage My new Toyota Etios Liva provides me a mileage of 12 Kmpl on highway with AC, which is quite less. Best Features Ground clearance is so good, it is according to the Indian roads. Apart from this Toyota Etios has nice suspension, one can,t feel the jumps and the enjoy the smooth drive. Interiors of the car are very spacious and comfortable and gives the feel of luxury car. Needs to improve I am not satisfied with the mileage of the car, its too less, Toyota has to improve it, Apart from this, Toyota Etios Liva doesn't have a classy looks as its a hybrid version of its forerunner Toyota Etios. Some more modification are needed to make it more classy. Overall Experience Its quite early to speak about the car but my experience of one week with my new Toyota Etios Liva is quite good. I am quite happy with its interiors which give me so much comfort. Other features which impress me are its excellent ground clearance and suspension ratio.

    Hi, How could you reach 120KMPH speed in 2 seconds????... Even the Rolls Royce or Aston Martin car can not do it.... BTW, Live is just another car to compete the Astar, Ritz kind of low quality cars... Not at all classy and looks very cheap car.. I am not against Toyotaor Live... But toyota failed to impact the market with this car... It is very very normal car nothing great.. Anyhow i didnt take a test drive. But i saw each corner of the car in the show room.. I am not impressed at all...

    Shame on cardekho for publishing such reviews... 120kmph in 2seconds, pal? u guys must have gone nuts... I am gonna unsubscribe from cardekho...thank you guys for your humor.

    sriram |12 Jul,2011 11:37:59 AM

    Hi Joel, It is not the mistake of cardekho. I think they must verify all reviews hereafter... It is my suggestion to cardekho and i am a big fan of cardekho and i get lot and lot of information from this. Thanks to cardekho...

    0-120km in just 2 don't talk like a stupid....

  • mohammed Samiullah |13 Jul,2011 08:56:19 AM

    I think its 2 minutes,

    sriram |13 Jul,2011 12:13:29 PM

    :-).... I think it is 20 seconds which would be much logical....

    mohammed Samiullah |13 Jul,2011 07:34:23 PM

    20 secs is good and logical hope this is fact, mileage is a concern

    Sachin bought a Nissan GTR, looks like he could settled for Liva which is faster than GTR.

    @sriram...beter drive al cars n den coment..astar and ritz are decent cars..n ritz in a european based design..n i knw silly indian like u wil never like......n wen a car is sold at lakhs(swift) al go like backras n fal for that frog shaped car..lolz..wat people man..n u coment here..go get a life

    sriram |18 Jul,2011 06:55:33 PM

    Hi Santosh, YEs You are right. A person who comments on cars needs to have driven all cars... In this case, Me too right as i already own 2 cars and already owned 2 cars.. If you say Ritz is a european based design means you had never seen any european cars it seems.. I already own 2 european cars dude.. Hence it seems you are very silly indian... BTW, Maruti Suzuki have sold lacks of lakcs car as there were no compeititors from Europe. In few years you will come to know that. Ultimately including swift, A-star & ritz, they are just below average cars (for you very very below to average europe car) except their K-series engine and After Sales Service.... You too go get a life...

    I am planning to buy Liva Petrol (Model V). I am quite confused with users' opinions posted here. Some users have strongly condemed the vehicle and some recommend it. I have seen the car myself and outer appearance, inner space, boot area is quite spacious. Ground clearance is very good. Vehicle looks manly. I do agree that interiors need improvement but it would surely add to cost by 50 thousand. Though the company has compromised on quality of interiors, they have provided ABS and EBD in the package to compensate.

    sriram |18 Jul,2011 07:18:28 PM

    Hi, You can visit all car shops and have a test drive of all cars and finally decide your car that suits well for u.. Dont decide based upon your read of the cars in website...

    scorpio |21 Jul,2011 03:51:27 AM

    Hi...i think u should go for cars my experience says buy the car of ur choice not of peoples choice...each n every car is good..we juss have to keep in mind our money,needs,choice...

    go for toyota liva. Reason it is developed according to roads in india. Its safety features are best and reasonable. Drive quality in city is better than any other car. It is a very practical car with a very good build quality and paint quality. It does not have plasic fuel tank and plastic nut and bolt. Overall no cheap material is used. As far as performance, safety and economy, and maintainance cost , it is best buy. Not good finish from inside is only negative aspect and not a racing car. Be practical we will not run car with family.

    Hi, Has taken test drive of liva, nothing significant found in pickup of the car. The interiors are quite boring ang looks like china made. Beat is having the best interiorsover all cars. Etios sedan version also didnt gr8 in market. Better to go for Beat or Swift

  • Shridhar S Vyas |20 Aug,2011 10:30:36 AM

    The base model priced at 4.0 lacs, and next model is costly by 60 thousands. If the company provide additionaly power steering with base model with elevation of price by 9-10 thousands, sale may boost up.
