Toyota will officially launch the new Etios Cross in the middle of May 2014. However, its dealerships have already begun accepting bookings for the car for an amount of Rs 50,000. The new Toyota Etios Cross is expected to retail for around Rs 60,000 more than the price of the standard Liva. The deliveries of the new Etios Cross are expected to begin a week after its launch.
The Etios Cross was first showcased by Toyota at the Auto Expo 2014. The new Etios Cross is essentially Toyota’s regular Etios Liva hatchback with a considerable amount of thick side body cladding to give it a more rugged appearance. On the exterior, the new Etios Cross gets a matte black plastic band that goes right across from its chin, to the flanks and around the rear. It also gets skid plates that have a dull silver finish.
The Toyota Etios Cross gets a new front grille with turn indicators in the fog lamps. It also gets roof rails, wing mirrors with turn indicators, a rear spoiler and diamond-finish 15-inch alloy wheels. It also gets a prominent ‘Etios Cross’ badge across its boot lid. These bits make the new Etios Cross look more rugged and menacing than the Toyota Etios Liva. The Cross will be offered to buyers in eight color options. Also, the new Etios Cross is 120mm lengthier, 40mm wider and 45mm taller than the standard Liva.
