2014 Auto Expo: Toyota Etios Cross revealed in India

Snapshot: The compact crossover version of the Etios Liva hatchback has been presented at the on-going 2014 Delhi Motor Show.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor has finally unwrapped the much hyped Etios Cross at the on-going 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi. Based on the Etios Liva, the Etios Cross is basically the crossover version of its hatch counterpart and will go head to head with Volkswagen’s Cross Polo and the upcoming Fiat Punto Avventura in the Indian market.

Differences between the Etios Liva hatch and the Etios Cross are limited to only visuals, with no changes to the driving and performance capabilities. On the outside, the Etios Cross has gained a much larger front bumper, new 10-inch alloy wheels, faux silver skid plates, tons of cladding on the lower part of the body, wheel arches and silver roof rails with payload capacity of up to 50kgs. Overall, the beefed up Etios Cross seems to have hit the nail right and hard in the pseudo off-roader segment. 

Engine options include two petrol units and one diesel unit. The petrol range consists of 1.2-litre unit that is rated at 80PS and a 1.5-litre unit that is rated at 90PS. The 1.4-litre diesel power plant on the other hand, produces 68PS of max power. 

The Toyota Etios Cross, which is already available on sale in international markets such as Brazil and Argentina is expected the streets in the next three months. The company has not yet, disclosed the prices for the Etios Cross.
