Exterior: Amazing styling exteriors, chrome grills, finishing and superb looks
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort): Ordinary interiors, nothing noteworthy
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox: I was disappointed with poor engine performance, struggled climbs on parking ramps, knocking sound in first and second gears, difficult gear shift (reverse does not place easily).
Ride Quality & Handling: Ride on smooth roads is pleasing, but on bumpy roads or speed brakers it is irritating. I can feel the uneasiness and shake on the steering wheel. Ground clearance is too low, front bumper has hit several speed brakers. Steering wheel tilt adjust does not give enough space to driver. Shock absorber is not upto the mark.
Final Words: I do not see real value for money on my Etios 2016. I should have evaluated more options before falling for Toyota brand and buying Etios. May be it is more suited for other countries but not Indian roads.
Areas of improvement: Features to catch up big time with the latest, mileage on petrol version to improve, body weight to be increased to absorb vibrations.
