I am planning to buy Toyota Etios Liva, please suggest whether it is a good choice?

The Toyota Etios Liva is a very good looking car. The new style grille, nice clean flowing line and rear end offer it a sporty look. The petrol variants come fitted with 1.2-litre DOHC unit which produces 79 bhp power along with 104 Nm of peak torque while diesel variants on the other hand comes fitted with 1.4 liter oil burner which produces 67 Bhp power and 170 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are mated to 5 speed transmission gears.
It has a spacious interior which can easily carry 5 adults. Seats are very comfortable and supportive. Car comes with decent 251 liter of boot space. The dashboard is same like Etios sedan. Features like electric power steering with tilt function, digital trip meter, air conditioning with heater, remote fuel lid and tailgate opener comes as standard across model range.
The car offers good handling, gear shift is smooth, clutch and power steering feels light. The car potters around at city speeds very comfortably. Suspension is good enough at absorbing bumps. In my opinion Etios Liva’s diesel variant feels more fun to drive than petrol variant as it delivers better mileage and its better low-end punch and strong mid-range make it a better highway performer. I advise you to take a test drive to experience the ride quality of both variants for yourself.
