Toyota took its standard Etios and gave it a little coating to make it more butch. Meet the 2017 Toyota Etios Cross, we witnessed the launch of the 2017 Etios Cross not so long ago, but a week of evaluation is more thorough. Toyota added plastic lower body trim around the perimeter of Liva hatchback, colorful silver scuff plates on the front and rear, redesigned front grille and presented an instant crossover.
2017 Toyota Etios Cross Exterior
The 2017 Toyota Etios Cross has a matte black plastic coating, a bold front grille, protruding roof rails, non-slip plates, a black B-pillar, a spoiler, alloy wheels 15-inch diamond plated And sides, ORVMs with turn indicators and rear window defogger with windscreen wiper, all of which give the car a muscular look. The coating makes the Etios Cross 120 mm longer, 40 mm wider and 45 mm higher than the Etios Liva, and the treatment ensures that it stands out in the crowd.
2017 Toyota Etios Cross Interior
Interior of the 2017 Toyota Etios Cross gave us a rather pleasant surprise. Compared to the dark and rather unique interiors offered in the regular car, the Cross Etios with its piano black dashboard and its large double-din infotainment system gives much to look forward to. The particular info entertainment system feels extremely valuable to the touch with most of the buttons and buttons on the car. The Toyota Etios Cross also comes with the sporty, flat-bottomed steering wheel that is obtained in the TRD version of the Etios Liva.
2017 Toyota Etios Cross Engine and Safety Features
There is a 1.5 liter engine powering the 2017 Toyota Etios Cross, and with 66 kW and 132 Nm, the vehicle never feels underpowered. Power is driven to the front wheels by a five-speed manual transmission that is solid and smooth in operation. While I could not find a travel computer, Toyota claims that the car will consume 6 l / 100km – not too bad. For its capacity of 1.5, it is probably the best engine in its class and it responds well when you want to beat it. This car gets ABS with EBD, two front airbags and, what Toyota calls, a collision absorbing body. It obtains the corrosion resistant steel sheet in areas subject to rust, sub body coating and anti chip coating.
