It has emerged that Toyota Kirloskar Motor recently introduced two new trim levels of the Liva diesel hatchback. Christened as the VD and VDSP, these become the new top-end variants of the Liva hatchback range. It may be noted that while the petrol engine-d Liva hatchback has been on sale in J, G and V trim levels, the diesel was on offer only in JD and GD variants until recently. With the addition of the new VD and VDSP, the Liva diesel, akin to its petrol sibling, now comes with a longer list of high end features.
For the exteriors of the Liva hatchback, the VD and VDSP trim levels bring along a double chrome front grille, front fog lamps, rear wiper and washer, 12-spoke alloy wheels, chrome garnish on the boot and turn indicators on the ORVMs.
For the interiors, the VD and VDSP come with a tachometer, dual-tone interiors, wood grain finished door armrests, a chrome gearshift knob, a rear defogger, and a bluetooth-compatible audio system. Also, the car gets leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering mounted audio controls and a gamut of safety features like dual airbags and ABS with EBD.
Mechanically, the car remains unchanged and continues to be powered by the same 1364 cc, 4-cylinder D-4D diesel engine that has a max power of 68 PS and peak torque of 170 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The VD and VDSP trim for the Liva diesel cost INR 6,72,000 and INR 7,12,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) respectively.
