Pros : Reliability, Toughness

Cons : Small Exhaust pipe

Look and Style Compact, Sufficient, not sloppy Comfort Excellent for this category Pickup Better than Indian make for sure Mileage Good efficiency given engine power Best Features Good economy and everyday car. Powerful enough to load many passengers and still overtake confidently. Unlike Maruti or Mahindra small cars that compromise on power (and safety when overtaking) for fuel efficiency, Toyota blends power with efficiency, giving an optimum mix. Needs to improve Aerodynamics. The design isn't cut out for high speed racing. Also the exhaust is a bit too small for airflow. Overall Experience Great car to modify and race with. Improved intake with cyclone charger and air filter, modified rear exhaust. Have a snorkel kit ready in case of floods. Increased ride height to manage hard unexpected bumps. Despite having hit on the underside many times during racing, this car didn't break or suffer oil leakages like my Maruti did. Sometimes i wish i can push this car to its limits and blow the engine so i can pick a new car and start all over again, but this car keeps on taking everything I can throw at it. There's a reason why Toyota is more expensive. It's a tank disguised as a car.

    I agree this car has all the makings to be a world car, it might be good for 2nd world countries like Brazil, southafrica but in third word country like India where there are more bad broken roads than good roads(Except NH every road is a bad road). Toyota should have firmed up the suspension of this car. I bought this car after seeing every other car that is available today cost +functionality+accomodation+fuel economy+reliability= Etios Liva. I love this car very much other than for the suspension. I am thinking of toughening the suspension myself by installing Firmer Coil springs(possibly Bilstein B3 Springs) and Bilstein B6 rear shocks which will strengthening my rear suspension so that the rear end does not flex too much when more people sit in the back, cars ground clearance is more than adequate, it just needs firm springs and shocks in the rear. I think once the rear suspension is strong this car will be amazing. I am also planning to install 15 inch wheels that is available in Liva petrol VXI, when I last spoke to my dealer he was ready to sell 4 wheels for 15000 Rs.
