Toyota Etios India Review

The exterior photos of the Etios reveal that the car is very sleek and aggressive. The upper grille, lower grille and headlamps all give the look of a human face with a cute dimple. The upper grille is in chrome with the lower grille embossed in black. The fog lamps are pearl white located at both end of the lower grille. The rain wipers are a miss at both the front and rear face. The rear view mirrors are the usual body color along with door handles, rear cowl and bumper.

The rear of the Etios however does give something to think about.  The tail lamp of the Etios is a three sided triangle. The luggage space is also on the larger side. The 170mm ground clearance also makes it a perfect suit for the uneven Indian roads.  The car comes with Body Colored Bumpers, Front Fog Lamps for the V and VX versions.  It has body Colored Door Handles for the G Version, Body Colored ORVM, B Pillar Black-Out, Intermittent Wiper excluding the G version, Side Skirt for the VX version, Tubeless Tyres, 12 Spoke Alloy Wheels for V and VX models and Chrome Garnish on Boot.
