Pros : Stylish look, cool colours, Value for money

Last month, I went in Delhi for watched an Auto Show 2010, there were many upcoming cars available for showcased in OEM,s Pavilion. I have seen all new technology cars and also Launched models. Many OEM's had launched many specialize car models. I am very impressed with Toyota's Etios car. The company was committed that it will introduce soon in the sedan segment. Its look very stylish and comfortable. I have seen all side its interior and exterior features are magnificent. But I really missed to drive for the most awaited Toyota Etios.But I have promised to own self for buy it only. I think so that It is not only stylish but also a great performed car.Its expected price at a Rs, 4 to 5 range. I have found the price in other some auto site.

    The price of hatchback I understand is between 4-5 lacs. However, price for Sedan version of Toyota Etios is likely to be between 7-9 lacs range. I was also under impression till date that Sedan version might be costing between 4-5 lacs and I wanted to wait till the launch of Sedan version. I had seen this car in Auto Expo 2010 at New Delhi and I was highly impressed and had decided to go for it as I had learnt that its cost would be less than 5 lacs or say around the price of Suzuki Dezire. I wanted to buy new car within March 2010 itself but after seeing this model in Auto Expo, I decided that its worth waiting to get Etios Sedan version which would cost @5lacs. But if the company decides to launch Sedan version in range of 7-9 lacs then I feel the price is on very much higher side and I may think of going for Tata Manza, Suzuki Dezire or even Fiat Linea, as I being a salaried class employee, I dont want to spend more than 6 lacs for Sedan car. If Toyota company people read my comment, i would like them to review thier price keeping higher middle class group of India, as the car is being launched first in India itself, in their mind and try to keep the price most competitive so that people from our group need not think of looking at other Brand and just jump to buy Etios. You are most welcom to correct me if I have understood the expected price range, wrongly.

    If toyota puts price around five lacs, they will sell like anything.

    Its very nice to see that tayota is launching Itios, but finaly when? Price of teh sedan version is little bit higher, in fact prices of tayota cars are higher in comparison to that other makes. I think Tayota may think about the price of its cars in Indian market in view of the competitive naturs. Moreover Tayota may also think to capture the market of the onther cities across all over India apart from the metros. For example Carola Altis is a very good car, but the price is very high for which most of te people hesitat to afford it or rather they opt for Honda City due to optimised price

    This is unique car in all aspects.What is the exact date of delivery to the customer.What is the exact price on road for hutchback and sedan at kolkata.Hope it will create a good market in India provided if it's price fixed within 5 will appreciate that Honda is always keep in mind to keep aforadable price to create massive market where Toyota is always high for which most of the buyer go for Honda.Although Toyota is better car than Honda.

  • R.SIVAKUMAR |19 Dec,2010 12:47:37 AM

    I thought that both sedan and hatchback will be launched at a time. Single wiper is disappointing. How such a big company has missed it.

    I havent the faintest idea about who writes the reviews for CARDEKHO and from where they are based, but here is a honest feedback for whoever has written the above review, the TOYOTA ETIOS reminds one of the Toyota Echo and not the Altis, The Echo for the information of all who havent heard of it has been discontinued from all other markets with the introduction of the YARIS, it is being introduced in the Indian Market after it was taken off most other markets worldwide. Apart from that , ENGINE & MAINTENANCE -this car is a work horse and doesnt need much maintenance, INTERIOR & EXTERIOR - the exterior and interior are very boxy and unappealing , the interior has a lot of places for storage, PRICE - At this price (5.2L to 6.2L) this is probably the best buy in the market. The car is slightly overpowered and has been involved in a lot accidents , so speedsters be wary.
