Chronology
Successor

The Toyota Etios is a subcompact car consisting a line of four-door saloon/sedan and five-door hatchback produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota for India (2010 to 2020), Brazil (2012 to 2021),[9] Indonesia (2013 to 2017),[10] South Africa,[11] and Argentina. The saloon version was launched in December 2010 and the hatchback version (with additional "Liva" and "Valco" suffixes in India and Indonesia respectively) followed in June 2011.[12] The vehicle is built on the EFC platform.

The "Etios" nameplate comes from the Greek word "ethos", meaning spirit, character and ideas,[13] while the name "Valco" is coined from terms "value and "comfort".[14]

Overview[edit]

During the development phase, the Etios was codenamed "EFC" (Entry Family Car).[15][16] Originally, the Etios was planned to be built on the Yaris platform, however a low-cost platform derived from the NBC platform called the EFC platform was used instead.[17][18] Aimed as the rival to the Dacia/Renault Logan, the vehicle is centered around India and Brazil as the manufacturing base. Toyota invested $350 million building a second plant in India to produce the Etios, with an initial annual production capacity of around 100,000 vehicles.[18]

The Etios Concept saloon with 1.5-litre petrol engine and Etios Concept hatchback with 1.2-litre petrol engine were unveiled in 10th Auto Expo automobile show in New Delhi.[19] The actual commercial production started in December 2010.

Since its introduction, the Etios has been updated three times, in March 2013, November 2014 and September 2016. No changes to the overall design were made, but there were changes to the interiors, front fascia and taillamps.

In May 2012, the Etios series reached total sales of 100,000 units in India.[20] Indian production stopped in March 2020 there as the Bharat Stage 6 went into effect in April. Since Toyota had no interest to upgrade the Etios to meet the updated emissions standards, it was replaced by the more upmarket XP150 series Yaris saloon and the Suzuki Baleno-based Glanza hatchback as Toyota's subcompact car offering in the country.[3] The Etios is also discontinued in Brazil in April 2021, but the production continued for export markets with 620,000 units produced in Brazil up to March 2021.[21][22] The XP150 series Yaris would assume the role of Toyota's entry-level car in the region.[22]

Engines[edit]

The petrol engines and transmissions are made locally at Toyota Kirloskar Auto Parts (TKAP), Bidadi, Karnataka, India.[23]

The series started in 2012 and witnessed an overwhelming response from the Indian youngsters, there were 3,300 applicants.[citation needed] After a 3-round selection procedure, Toyota held 2 rounds of exhibition races in 2012, one at a purpose built race track in Chennai called the Sriperumbudur race track and other in the form of ROC (Race of Champions) in Gurgaon. The 25 selected drivers competed in the main championship held in the later half of 2013.[citation needed] The cars are prepared by Red Rooster Performance based in Bangalore and designed by Toyota Racing Development (TRD).
