The new Entry Family concept car is expected to be 90 percent same to the production version that will be on sale end of 2010.But from the ad it is clear that it is not a hatchback and will be a sedan. Maybe the Etios will be launched as a sedan and after that the hatchback version will be launched by end 2010.
Toyota has squeezed out costs of manufacturing Etios wherever possible to make it price-competitive in India and has made it stand at par with Maruti Swift. Etios will be come with two engine options - a 1.4-liter diesel that powers the Yaris and a 1.2- or 1.3-liter gasoline unit. Toyota also has 1.3L petrol engine (K3 series) but has not made it clear whether it will be downsized to 1.2L to meet the small car regulation norms to save on excise duty. Toyota will manufacture about 70,000 units of the Etios per annum, to begin with, and will aim for a 10% market share in the Indian small cars segment by end-2010. Up to 70% of the India-spec Etios components will be locally sourced, which will allow Toyota to price the car competitively. The Toyota Etios will compete with the likes of Maruti’s swift along with other premium hatchback cars in India like Fiat’s Punto, Hyundai’s i20 and Skoda Fabia. While official prices have not been announced, the Etios is expected to cost Rs 4.5-5.5 lakhs. More details, pictures, exact specifications and photos of Toyota Etios after the official launch.
