Toyota Platinum Etios (Facelift) Priced at Rs. 6.43 Lakh!


Toyota India has launched the new Etios facelift. The new Toyota Platinum Etios 2016 facelift should looks like the Brazil’s Etios. Toyota India‘s C-segment sedan hasn’t done too well on the sales charts. This is mainly due to its bland styling and a “cheap car” image. This new version should help Toyota’s Etios twins appeal to more buyers.

Toyota has not made many mechanical changes to the Etios. Both the body styles continue with the earlier engines. However, ABS is now standard across all models. The side body structure has also been refined for higher impact absorption. The rear bench sits on a stronger tubular structure. These improvements have increased the weight by 20 KGs.

New Toyota Platinum Etios 2016 Facelift Interior


Images of the Brazil-spec model show a different steering wheel and black colour scheme. However, the India-spec model gets a beige treatment. The Platinum Etios facelift comes with more features like standard ABS. The new model gets a flat-bottomed steering wheel and a digital instrument panel. The new Etios also gets new rear seat headrests. Apart from this, there isn’t much else.

New Toyota Etios 2016 Engine and Transmission

Engines remain the same. The sedan continues with the 89 BHP, 1.5 litre petrol and 67 BHP, 1.4 litre Diesel engine. The hatchback gets a 79 BHP, 1.2-litre petrol and the 67 BHP, 1.4-litre Diesel engine from the sedan. All engines come with a 5 speed manual transmission. The new model’s clutch system and front shock absorbers have been improved. Also, the rubber engine mounts have been replaced by hydraulic mounts for reducing vibrations.

The 2016 Platinum Etios is aimed at private car buyers. The Etios is popular among cabbies. However, it is yet to attract the private lot. The new Etios could change things. It looks better. It also has more features. The engines too should be more refined. Even the pricing is attractive.
