Toyota Etios

After driving it for 5 years, I can proudly say that Toyota Etios deserves to be at the top in the SEDAN segment with the price range it offers. Whether you want to drive it like a sports car on the highway or like a convenient vehicle in the city having a lot of traffic. Well, let me take you through its best parts and very few disappointed ones. So, here we go..... Best parts:: 1. Interior design and parts - The interior is dual toned, makes it look luxurious, The dashboard is big and classic, All the necessary details are there in front of you. You get music mode, volume, channels change buttons on the handle also, makes it convenient. It beeps if seat belts are not used. There are enough small storages, specific for cups/glasses, elbow rest as well. On the driver door, you get buttons to slide up/down for every window, buttons to control mirrors, and yes central locking system as well. So, you see, these things are handy. Wait there's more.. 2. Exteriors: From outside, It gives a hard and a beast look, from front to rear, sideways. This car having a sleek design from front helps to cut air resistance and helps to accelerate at more pace. The build quality is rock solid, although the paint doesn't seem to be same as that. Parking it under the direct hot sunlight, may affect its shade. Well, it did for me. But I've been parking it out almost every day. 3. Comfort & Space - Much more comfortable, than you can expect in this price range, in terms of seats, the range of sliding the seats from front to rear Or let it be inclining it at almost from 80 degrees to 145 degrees, Well, that's a lot to allow any sitting postures and leg room for the driver as well as others. The quality of the seat covers are actually very good, I still didn't need to change them. 4. Handling - This is the best part of it that I love the most, Handling is so smooth and superb, Power steering helps a lot. Trust me, I've driven it on 170-175 Km/H on NH1 highway with lots of luggage, It didn't even vibrate a little. 5. AC & Sound System - Never had to think about changing the sound system, It came with enough BASS and TREBLE. AC system is powerful, cools down the car within minutes. 6. Engine and Mileage - Toyota is known for its powerful engines, Engine is efficient, being a Diesel engine, doesn't require much maintenance, Mileage is around 16-18 in the city, 21 on the highway. Gives best when driven in around 80-100 on highways. With so many pros, here come few cons as well: 1. Suspension and Shockers: I think, the life of suspension and shockers is not that much which I expected, had to change within 3 years. 2. Ground level: I had changes Tyres, with alloys, that made its ground level very low, have to be careful when driving over the high-speed breakers. Well, that's it for the cons, I really had to think hard to get them, these are the ones that I accept. Never the less, this car is trustworthy and never had to face any issues related to engines or anything except punctures, hehe. I highly recommend this car to my mates, Recommending here too, Give it a test drive. Regards, Rajiv
