Toyota has launched a limited edition variant of the Etios Liva, known as the Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition in the Indian market. Based on the top-of-the-line VX variant, the newly launched limited edition Etios Liva costs Rs 6.51 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the petrol and Rs 7.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the diesel version. Though, the Japanese automaker has launched the limited edition of the car in India, but it will be available in selected cities across the country.
Speaking at the launch, N Raja, Deputy Managing Director, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “Toyota Kirloskar Motor is in the process of continually upgrading all their products to meet the evolving needs of the Indian market, by offering the best features to their customers. The Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition is a confluence modern style with substance designed to meet the modern expectations. Toyota is counting on bringing younger buyers to the fold based on the Liva’s sporty design; With this smart limited edition we are confident we will win many more happy customers and continue to sustain our positive growth for Liva.”
The customers can buy the limited edition Liva only in one color option- white with red accents and a black roof. However, those who don’t want to go for the white exterior color can opt for other regular dual-tone variants of the Etios Liva. The only catch here is that the limited edition Liva gets contrasting inserts inside and out which are not a part of the standard dual-tone Liva, while the standard dual-tone Liva comes with orange, red and white exterior colors with a black roof.
In terms of features, the limited edition Toyota Etios Liva gets a red & black dual-tone grille, red inserts on the side and boot, and red door handles, while the roof is done in black keeping it true to the dual tone theme. At the interior, the hatchback gets red accents around AC vents and the gear knob. However, the major highlight of the newly launched Toyota hatchback is the 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system which also doubles up as the display for the reversing camera, while the standard Liva gets a 2-DIN audio system and doesn’t offer the reverse parking camera.
Other than these, the limited edition gets all the features of the VX variant including electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, rear defogger, cooled glove box, tilt-adjustable steering, steering-mounted controls and 15-inch alloys. In terms of safety, the hatch comes equipped with Dual Front SRS Airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) across all grades & model, Front Seat Belts with Pre Tensioner & Force Limiter, Isofix Child Seat Locks for all models and all variants.
Under the hood, the limited edition Etios Liva offers the same engine as the standard version. The car gets the regular 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 79 bhp and 104 Nm, and a 1.4-litre diesel engine generating 67 bhp and 170 Nm of peak torque.
Earlier this year, Toyota has also announced the partnership with Suzuki. The partnership will work toward the mutual supply of hybrid and other vehicles between the two companies for the Indian market. To be specific, Toyota will supply the Corolla vehicle model to Suzuki, while Suzuki would supply the Baleno and Vitara Brezza vehicle models to Toyota.
