The Toyota Etios is a subcompact car consisting a line of four-door sedan and five-door hatchback produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota for India (2010 to 2020), Brazil (since 2012), Indonesia (2013 to 2017), South Africa and Argentina. The sedan version was launched in December 2010 and the hatchback version (called "Liva" in India and "Valco" in Indonesia) followed in June 2011. It is built on the EFC platform, which is derived from the NBC platform.
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. It stopped production 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 sedan and the OEM-supplied Glanza hatchback as Toyota's subcompact car offering in the country.

The Etios Concept sedan 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. The actual commercial production started in December 2010.
