Toyota has showcased Etios Cross at the Auto Expo 2014, which will be launched in the Indian market in May this year.
The Toyota Etios Cross is nothing but a more ‘macho’ looking version of the Etios Liva and should appeal to those who have been looking for a rugged ‘five-door’ but have been staying away from SUV’s. The Toyota Etios Cross is equipped with plastic body cladding, faux skid plats, new design alloy wheels and roof rails.
Powering the Toyota Etios Cross would be the same engines which power the Etios sedan and the Etios Liva hatch.
The Toyota Etios Cross is equipped with some additional bells n whistles such as :
- Height adjustable driver seat
- Leather wrapped steering
- Audio system with Bluetooth, USB and Aux-in
- Steering mounted audio controls
- OVRM’s with indicators.
- Rear window defogger
- Centrally mounted tachometer and speedometer unit with a digital clock.
Due to the addition of body cladding, skid plats and roof rails, the Etios Cross isn’t identical in exterior dimensions to regular Etios Liva. Length x Width x Height now stands at 3895 mm X 1735 mm X 1555 mm, compared to 3775 mm x 1695 mm x 1510 mm for the regular variants. The wheel base, at 2460 mm, remains the same. The new design alloy wheels will come shod with 180/60 R15 spec tires.
