The fact that Toyota enjoys selling big daddy of SUV Fortuner and the very famous Innova to Indians; it gets disappointed when it looks towards the not-so-peppy sales figures of Etios and Liva.
It is no doubt Toyota pushed both of these products hard in our local markets, but result doesn’t tend to change a bit rather than going against the favor of carmaker. Meanwhile, latest answer from Japanese to our country is the Etios and Liva second anniversary celebration edition, which is being christened as ‘Toyota Liva Xclusive’ and ‘Toyota Etios Xclusive’.
Both of these cars are only the minute cosmetic change of their present generation, engines are said to be carried in the form of 1.2 liter (80 PS-104 Nm) and 1.5 liter (90 PS-132 Nm) petrol motors and a 1.4 liter (68 PS-170 Nm) turbo diesel jag. Both of the fuel-trims mellows down five-speed manual gearbox as standard, meanwhile the recent addition to the list of these vehicles were TRD Sportivo kit, which adds the revvy 1.5 liter petrol engine to the car.
Coming to cosmetics, it was revealed Toyota Xclusive edition Etios and Liva dons the two-tone interiors i.e. of beige and grey, chromic accents on the gear-knob, and new seat fabrics for visual makeover trip. Technical aspect stands frugal with the audio system applied with Bluetooth and remote control, inclusive of reverse parking camera. In overall, comprising both of the tweaks, owners can enjoy the Xclusive Edition Badges on their anniversary edition cars to flaunt the assortment which the carmaker had limited only to 1000 units for each of the model plate.
However, this launch is concluded on the official website of Toyota, hence prices weren’t made informed to us. But we hope the carmaker to deploy same tags which presently are there on the ongoing production-specific, so a large number of footfalls for Liva and Etios can be contoured in the showrooms easily.
