The side profile of the sedan resembles the Logan. I think the rear combination lamp is the culprit here. Any update on the prices? Centre mounted instrument console is a strict no no.

The hatch looks nice though. And at least, Toyota did a better job than Maruti did with the Dzire

Sedan looks like a Logan facelift !

Interior looks good, with the curvy and flowing surfaces, 2 air con vents on the passenger side ?!?!? What were the designers thinking ?

and oh lord, a single wiper & washer nozzle ! Haven't the Toyota designers driven a car in the pouring Indian monsoon season ??

Agree with that. The hatch definitely looks better than the sedan. The sedan is more of a contemporary look.

not so logan type is my opinion. its OK if they price it around 7-9 lakh. with toyota brand and may be good looking this car is going to rock.. they should not however make a mistake to position hatchback in the same price braket though (like jazz) with difference of few (read 2-3 lakh)

Etios behind is good. I will surely consider this car for my garage when they launch it.

The hatch looks half decent, but still somehow it has a tacky look to it. The interior is disappointing too.
As I said in the very beginning, the sedan looks a lot like the logan. It's looks will go down well with the elders.

To be honest, I'm completely disappointed. VW, let us down with the engine in their polo, and now this from toyota. I wish they had revamped the yaris and brought it down here, with it's more classy looks and clean styling.

yup agree with the comments above the sedan looks like a spruced up logan, not what i expected from a toyota (dacia maybe) but hey the hatch looks quite cheeky and nice

Whats with these manufacturers! India is like thrash bin for them. Bringing the outdated stuff here with some cosmetic surgeries and selling them at premium.
First it was Ford(Figo) and now Toyota.
Etios looks so ugly both sedan and hatch. And for this! they were saying "quaity revolution" "first to india" bla bla blah.
and those interiors, eeks.
Come on Toyota, Why not bring the better looking Yaris instead.

Etios hatch and sedan deserves price tag no higher than say a swift and logan respectively. ANHC need not worry
