Hey guys good news!! The etios Liva will be launched in June end. The car will be powered by a 1.4 diesel which powers the corolla, but will have a FGT. The car will be priced very aggressively at 6.2lakhs on-road for the top end diesel. Please mark my words as i got to know this from a person in the Toyota factory near Bangalore and production has already started. Tha ARAI mileage is 25kmpl.
Cheers,
Naparajito

That's great news. A middle version for about 5.5L will be surely competitive. I hope they have done something about the garibchand interiors though.

Naparajito: you seem to have the inner contacts at auto industry! I think you only spilled out the mini xylo was going to be 5+2, even before it was appended in the title of that thread. Any updates for that thread too mate?

So the prices are for Bangy?? That should be around 10K lesser than the Swift VDi ABS in Bangalore right ? This is a solid price but hope they have done something to the interior to make it better. And an ARAI mileage of 25 is way too brilliant. Benchmarking swift's 21kmpl, this is already a 4 kmpl more. Any idea whats the power going to be like ? 1.4L D with a VGT = 90, so 1.4L D with FGT = 75 bhp ??

So the diesel sedan is also getting launched by June end ?? And that also going to have the FGT version ? I was told by one of the salesman that they might launch the diesel sedan only next year since the waiting period is something they are not able to handle well.

Offtopic:
@Naparajito..You ROCK !! So Toyota is planning to launch 26 new vehicles / variants in the next 4 years ?? Thats an average 6 models an year!! Wow, thats a great news. Do you have any idea of all those? Would you mind opening a new thread and shifting the discussion there and keep this as a LIVA thread itself ?

Thanks Naparajito for this update, hope the Liva launch news is true !
Are there any changes to the interiors ? really the Etios sedan interior is a turn off. I think just changing the interior plastic colour combination will make a big difference to the feel of the car. Some of the Etios owners have complained about rattling issues hence I am keeping my fingers crossed about the overall build quality levels.

I am sure a diesel top end prices at 6.2 lacs will be quite competitive however the equipment level needs to seen. Remember B+ segment is a far more competitive than sedan’s hence Liva has to come with a good value for money proposition to be a winner.
