Toyota will launch the Etios sedan and Liva with diesel engines on the 9th of September. Toyota has started accepting bookings for the Etios. The dealers are charging Rs. 50,000 and accepting the bookings
The Liva will get a smaller 1.2 litre diesel engine which will have a power output of around 60-65 horsepower while the Etios sedan will get the 1.4 litre diesel mill with around 70-75 horse power.
The engine will be mated to a 5 speed gear box. The diesel options will be a lakh more expensive to the petrol versions.
The Liva diesel will have to fight the new Swift Diesel, Tata Indica Vista, Nissan Micra, Skoda Fabia and the VW Polo. The pricing will play a very important role and we expect it to be around Rs. 1 lakh higher as compared to its petrol counterpart.
