Toyota has launched a limited edition variant of the Etios Liva, known as the Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition. It is based on the top-of-the-line VX variant and costs Rs 6.51 lakh for the petrol and Rs 7.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the diesel version. Toyota states that the limited edition Liva will be available in select cities in the country.
The Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition can only be had with the standard white shade of the Liva with red accents and a black roof. If you don’t want to go for the white exterior colour, you can opt for other regular dual-tone variants of the Etios Liva. However, the limited edition Liva gets contrasting inserts inside and out which are not a part of the standard dual-tone Liva. The standard dual-tone Liva comes with orange, red and white exterior colours with a black roof.
What’s new in the Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition?
The limited edition Toyota hatchback gets a red & black dual-tone grille, red inserts on the side and boot, and red door handles. True to the dual-tone theme, the roof is done in black. Inside, there are red accents around AC vents and the gear knob. The highlight of this limited edition Liva is the 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system which also doubles up as the display for the reversing camera. The standard Liva gets a 2-DIN audio system and misses out on the reverse parking camera.
Engine specs remain the same. The Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition continues to be powered by the regular 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 80PS and 104Nm, and a 1.4-litre diesel engine generating 68PS and 170Nm.
The limited edition gets all the features of the VX variant including electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, rear defogger, cooled glovebox, tilt-adjustable steering, steering-mounted controls and 15-inch alloys. In terms of safety, it is equipped with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, keyless entry and ISOFIX child seat anchors.
The Etios Liva Dual Tone Limited Edition attracts a premium of around Rs 21,000 over the standard dual-tone Liva. The premium seems to be justified for the additional equipment and cosmetic add-ons that it gets.
