The facelifted versions of the Etios sedan and Liva hatchback are aimed at making the two cars more desirable for the Indian buyer which is something Toyota hasn’t managed to achieve thanks to bland styling and evident cost cutting all around the vehicle. These updates surely add to the appeal of the cars whose core strengths are massive interior space and great value for money but we’ll have to wait and see how well the Etios facelift performs against the Maruti Dzire, Nissan Sunny, Ford Classic, etc. The Etios Liva also faces stiff competition from the Swift, i20, VW Polo, etc.
