Pros : Spacious, freshness in design

Cons : Pathetic Petrol fuel avg, & poor design dashboard

Look and Style- Good from outside. Freshness in outside design But dashboard design & also a very poor quality plastic material used is very pathetic. Even door panel plastic is of poor quality. Comfort: Good comfort. But a lot of noise in the cabin, which does not go with Toyota brand image. Co. should improve insulation. Also on start, engine heavily vibrate like a diesel engine. Pickup : Average for 1400cc petrol car. Not great. Mileage : Comapany claims avg of 17.3 km/pl. However my petrol Etios(2012 registered) give avg of 8 to 9 km/pl in Mumbai city. It is not even 50% of what Toyota claim. Nobody accepted from brand like Toyota for this lie. Best Features : good boot space. Good braking & driving control. Needs to improve: A)Aveage on Petrol Etios, B) Quality of dashboard & door panel, C) Better insulation for less noise in cabin, D) Stop of engine vibration at start.  Overall Experience Good but much less satisfaction specially from International brand TOYOTA. Company either call back all car & change parts for improvement or stop selling this model to save company`s brand image.

    I am sorry to say that u must be having a bad driving habit. I am saying so because I ahave just recently purcased an ETIOS and getting an average of 17kmpl for first 200kms in 5 days in petrol in city with Ac mostly on. Secondly there is no noise in the cabin as well. Yes i agree that the engine vibrates a bit both at the start and stop

    Dear Dipen, I have checked 6 times & average has improved to 10.5 km pkm. Pls.clerify is your car is on Petrol? There seems to be some mistake in calculating fuel avg. Further do check avg.with full tank & also ensure to shake car well to avoid gas inside petrol tank. Looking ur feedback..

    Yes boss, I had filled 551/- worth petrol which lasted for 232 kms of which the 94 kms was the reading when I took the car and filled the petrol. Rate of petrol in mumbai 70 something

    I also stay at Mumbai. I once again suggest you to first full tank of petrol & after 100km driving, again refill & test avg. Even company authorised dealers supervisor claim avg.of 10 to 12kmpl in city. If ur car giving your avg.then it is really amazing.Great Dipen. Wish u all d best.
