Toyota Etios Liva, a hatchback has completed two months in Indian market but the car has performed sadly may be because of the availability of petrol variant only. To add the grief Maruti India launched new version of Swift hatchback and Honda brought Jazz into the Indian market to compete with Toyota Etios Liva. Toyota Etios diesel will replace the sedan Toyota Etios currently being tagged in range of Rs 4.99 to 6.97 lakh (ex-showroom price). The earlier mileage of this car was a mere 17.6 kmpl.
