I have said this before – Dual Tone theme is fast catching up in India (see Mahindra KUV Dual Tone) and the latest car to offer the same is the Toyota Etios Liva. Dual tone will be offered only in the V/VD and VX/VXD versions and not the lower G/GD and GX/GXD. The dual tone trim will cost approximately Rs 10-14,000 more than the normal ones depending on the version you pick.
Here’s a quick look at the prices (ex-showroom Delhi)
Toyota Etios Liva Dual Tone V Petrol: Rs 5,94,535
Toyota Etios Liva Dual Tone VX Petrol: Rs 6,44,861
Toyota Etios Liva Dual Tone VD Diesel: Rs 7,24,361
Toyota Etios Liva Dual Tone VXD Diesel: Rs 7,61,403
This new version gets the following features:
- Sporty Roof Spoiler
- New dual-tone painted contrast roof and pillars
- Bold front grille with black finish
- Chrome Fog Lamp Bezels
- Electrically Foldable ORVMs
- Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels
Toyota has already been offering dual SRS airbags and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) across all grades. The Liva will continue to come with a choice of both petrol and diesel engine options which means you can pick from either the 1.2-litre petrol or the 1.4-litre diesel. There is no automatic on offer currently.
Sharing his thoughts on the new offering, Mr. N. Raja, Director & Senior Vice President (Sales & Marketing), Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd said “We are delighted to present to you the “The New Dual-Tone Etios Liva” with stylish dual tone exterior, best safety features and bold design. Toyota Kirloskar Motor believes in constant innovation to upgrade its products and offer the best features to its customers. It is with this underlying philosophy that Toyota has come a long way with the Etios series. We had introduced our first dual tone Etios during the festive season in the year 2015 which had received overwhelming response. Later during September 2016, we had introduced the Platinum Etios and Liva catering to the changing taste of Indian customers, setting new standards of safety, dependability, quality and performance.
