Small Toyota Etios Liva Feels As Great As Other Giants

Review

 

To compete with carmakers like Maruti Suzuki and Ford, Toyota has been doing detailed research in the auto market and extracting as much information as possible. Then, here it gets a little hatchback which is quite right for the customers’ willing. Toyota Etios Liva is derived from its sedan sibling, Toyota Etios, and shares many of its features. And now hatchbacks are becoming more and more popular in India because of their practicalities as well as the value of money. What’s more, Toyota Etios Liva offers dual-tone choices for its customers, combined with the attractive alloy wheels, Liva can be sportier and more modern.

Driving Performance

 

Engine and Transmission

Sadly, Toyota Etios Liva only provides a 5-speed manual gearbox for us. There are two engines for the Liva, a 1.2-litre petrol engine which can deliver max. power of 56 kW (76PS) @ 5291 rpm and max. torque of 99 Nm (10.6 kg-m) @ 2929 rpm, another one is a 1.4-litre diesel producing 48 kW (65PS) @ 3591 rpm and 161 Nm (17.3 kg-m) @ 1701-2268 rpm.

Steering and Handling

The steering provides tilt function and the clutch is extremely light, which makes the car very smooth and flexible on the road, like a bird in the sky. The well-tuned suspension makes it a safe ride. Even you need to take some time on the road for your daily commute, Live doesn't make you feel upset. However, the cabin would be a little noisy at high speed.

Mileage

 

Thanks to its small engine and Toyota’s good fuel technology, the fuel consumption of the petrol variant is 18.16 kmpl and the diesel one has 23.59 kmpl.

Exterior

 

Dimensions

※Length: 3.884 m

※Width: 1.695 m

※Height: 1.510 m

※Wheelbase: 2.460 m

Design

The front and rear bumpers are all new and the fascia now is better than the old generation. It has the traditional Toyota family grille and the chrome surrounds on the improve fog lamp housings. The new sporty 15-inch alloys wheels match the stance of the car really well. There are no big differences at the rear except the fresh rear bumper mentioned above.

Tyres

185 / 60 R15

Interior

 

Dashboard

As you can see, Liva has a special design in the cabin, the dashboard is rarely set in the middle, which provides a bigger driving sight for the driver than other cars. But, at the same time, the driver needs to look to the left to know the speed information of the car and this is a very dangerous thing on the road. Besides, both tri-spoke steering wheel and shift knob have silver accents.

Space

Its spacious interior can allow five people with ideal ease and provide them with impressive comfort. You can enjoy ample headroom, shoulder room and legroom in the cockpit and such roomy cabin is out of my expectation.

Specification and Features

Comfort and Convenience

※Air Conditioner w/ Heater & Clean Air Filter, Electric Power Steering w/ Tilt Function

※Central Locking, Height Adjustable Driver Seat, Audio Controls on Steering Wheel (VX VXD)

※2 DIN CD MP3/AM FM w/ USB, Aux In, Bluetooth, 4 Speakers

Interior

※3D Textured Fabric Seats – Ivory, 7 Bottle Holders (1 litre) Front & Rear Door Pockets

※Assist Grip w/ Coat Hook, Remote Fuel Lid & Tailgate Opener

※Piano Black Finish on Instrument Panel, Dual-Tone Interior (Ivory & Black)

Safety

※Dual SRS Airbags (D+P), Child Restriant System - ISOFIX x 2 & TETHER ANCHOR x 2

※ABS w/ EBD, Immobiliser, Keyless Entry

※Front Fog Lamps, Reverse Sensors, Rear Defogger, Speed Alert System

Conclusion

Sporty and fashionable look with not-so-big dimensions make Liva attractive on the street and very smooth and agile in the city. Small engines with great ride quality and the spacious cabin for the driver and passengers, these are a little bit unexpected for me. Its functions and features are more useful and practical than you think.
