The success of the Etios and Etios Liva may show no signs of abating and if the diesel is anything to go by, then this could very well be the sign of things to come.

A 1.4-litre diesel motor is identical to the one found on the Corolla diesel, except that it has a fixed geometry turbocharger instead of a variable one. A 5-speed manual is mated to the motor and the company claims an ARAI figure of 23.59 kpl for both the Liva hatch and Etios sedan. It produces 67 bhp@3700 rpm and 17.2 kgm of peak torque from 1800-2400 rpm.

The Liva hatch is expected in a single trim, called the GD. Weighing in at 980 kg, the Liva hatch will come with a body-kit that includes a rear-spoiler and skirts but with plastic wheel caps instead of alloys on its 175/65 R14 tyres. The GD has ABS with EBD as standard, twin airbags as an option but no music system nor a tachometer. A single tone grey trim adorns the interiors.

There is no perfect car, in the hatchback shootout, one needs to identify parameters in the comparison matrix that really matter; any number of reviews and discussion cannot help in the purchase decision. Following the heart is a better option (rather than being swayed by the mind)!

personaly its a good vehicle,, only the dashboard is little bit disappointed with combination of silver grey color.Over all engine is very good. Toyota is as usual focus more on Safety and fuel efficiency..
