Toyota had introduced the Etios to the Indian market back in 2010. Due to raise in demand of compact SUVs and crossover, the Japanese car manufacturer has revealed their new ‘Etios Cross'.
The Etios Cross will compete against the likes of Ford's EcoSport and Volkswagen Cross Polo. The Japanese manufacturer intends it's car to be more of an off-roader than the competitors. The crossover will look aesthetically different from it's derivative.
Toyota will offer the car with the same engine option available on the Liva. A 1.4 litre diesel engine will be offered along with two petrol options the 1.5 litre and 1.2 litre naturally aspirated.
The Japanese will however, price the Etios Cross definitely above the Liva. We believe this car has what it takes to compete against it's competitors.
