It seems that Toyota has been planning to release another redesigned sedan soon. It will be the new Toyota Etios which will hit the market as a 2019 Toyota Etios model. The Japanese carmaker has prepared lots of changes and enhancements in terms of exterior and interior design, but this model will also come with an improved fuel economy and lower price.
It has been said that the 2019 Toyota Etios will be specially designed for the Indian market. It will of course appear in other markets too, but it is certain that this model will have to improve its fuel economy and general efficiency to help your driving through busy city streets. It will represent an everyday sedan with affordable price. When it comes to exterior design, the new Etios will mostly be based on the current model’s features, but it will also upgrade many of them and get a bit more aggressive and sportier styling. In the front fascia, you will notice the V-shaped grille that will be made of stainless steel and get some black details on it. The bumper will also seem sportier with larger air vents in it. The boomerang-shaped headlights as well as rounded fog lights will be refreshed and use the latest LED technology. It has been said that this sedan will be standing on 15-inch alloy wheels. Its suspension and general protection will be improved and innovative so the new Etios will get the EBD (Digital Brake-Drive Circulation) and the Anti-bolt Braking System.
The Japanese brand will definitely tend to make the interior of the 2019 Etios innovative and upgraded. There will be enough space inside its cabin to perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. Also, the seats will be modified due to a new design, offering more support and comfort. You will also notice a two-tone interior design while the dashboard will look more sophisticated and modern in its beige color. The driver will get a multifunctional steering wheel with easily controlled buttons and commands on it so there is no need of taking your eyes of the road. The new Etios will also provide a larger touch-screen display with the infotainment system and options such as audio system with loudspeakers, radio, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection. Numerous safety systems and driver assist features will be included as well.
One of the options considered under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Etios has been a 1.5-liter 16-valve DOHC engine. Such an engine is expected to deliver 80 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. It will probably be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. A diesel version will be available too, but we expect more information soon.
