Value for Money - Real Entry level Sedan ....
Full Review Exterior Etios G White. Don't forget to negotiate before paying the booking amount. You can always get all the regular accessories free. I purchased from New Delhi. So, got sun visors, mats, read door garnish, trunk mat, mud flaps free. Exterior wise, this car is basically classy and robust and not stylish like Amaze or Desire. But it give an executive look and kinda mature statement rather than teen-hormone driven statement. So I think its for people who want to buy a car for family comfort, a status symbol within this price bracket, reliable car and want a car for at least 8 to 10 yrs. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Space and comfort are real assets of this car. You won't believe the boot space and driving comfort. Take this on a long drive and you won't feel tired. But when it comes to other flowery things like stylish gear knob and switches.....it sucks. I think Toyota ppl have really given all durability and reliability but forgot internal decoration. Verdict: Sacrificing some cosmetic effects for long term usage and comfort is OK. You can't have that much boot space in Desire. I had used both cars. Etios is consensus winner. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy, and Gearbox Engine quality is superb as compared to its competitors and can even give higher end 10Lac cars a run for their money. Those ppl who want to buy a car and keep it for 8 - 10 yrs minimum should buy this. Coz it won't be outdated or outperformed. Fuel economy is satisfactory and gearbox is better than Desire. I think going for Desire where money is mainly for cosmetic effects and not for durability is a foolish choice. Just compare specifications and you'll see for yourself. Ride Quality & Handling Excellent and smooth. Total feel of driving a sedan class. Final Words Don't buy a car coz some neighbor or office colleague has bought it. Research for yourself. If you compare Desire, Amaze and ETIOS, then you'll find that ETIOS is a clear winner in every field. Toyota has outperformed Maruti and Honda. Though Maruti appears economic but in reality if you compare specifications and price, you'll find that Maruti is fooling the customer and Amaze has clearly cut down on specifications. While Toyota delivers engine performance, Space, and Comfort. It's the car for wise ppl. I am happy that I chose ETIOS G over Desire Vxi and Amaze MT. Areas of improvement Interior Accessories.
