Toyota Etios

Toyota Etios

The Toyota Etios was first unveiled at the Auto Expo in New Delhi in 2010 by the Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. In spite of not being a production model, the car grabbed the attention of the people and gave them a clear picture of what to expect from the model once it hits production. It was launched into the Indian market by Toyota in December.


Since then, multiple variants and versions of the car have been brought out, and the last model to be introduced to the Indian markets was the Toyota Etios 2014-2016. The last model came out with an array of design and style changes. However, the car has been discontinued by Toyota, and it is out of production now. It has been replaced by newer and more improved models like the Toyota Etios Liva, Toyota Etios Platinum, and the cross-over Toyota Etios Cross.


The Toyota Etios was available in 8 amazing colors – Classic Grey, Blue Metallic, Symphony Silver, New Pearl White, Harmony Beige, White, and Vermillion Red.
