We reported in detail when Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) showcased the Toyota Etios Cross at the recently conducted Auto Expo 2014.
Now, it has emerged that Toyota dealerships across the country are accepting bookings for the Toyota Etios Cross. While the prices of the car will be announced at the time of new Toyota Etios Cross launch in May, the car can be booked for a sum of INR 50,000.
To be promoted by the tagline ‘Born with attitude’, the new Toyota Etios Cross is basically a ‘crossover-styled’ variant of the B segment Liva hatchback and becomes the third such offering after the now defunct Skoda Fabia Scout and the Volkswagen Polo Cross.
The new Toyota Etios Cross will be available in three engine options –
- 1.5L Petrol (Max power- 90 PS @ 5600 rpm)
- 1.2L Petrol (Max power- 80 PS @ 5600 rpm)
- 1.4L Diesel (Max power- 68 PS @ 3800 rpm)

Visually, the new 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.
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
