As the Maruti Swift and Hyundai i20 had long waiting periods I went out and bought a Toyota Etios Liva. On hindsight though this was not the best decision. The interior plastic quality of the Etios Liva are below par, the car does not have enough in terms of features or creature comforts and the thin seats are downright uncomfortable. I mean, what was Toyota thinking? I agree that the interiors of the base model Swift also leave much to be desired but I expected much more from Toyota.
The only good part is that I spend close to no money on maintenance of this car as it is very reliable and only requires oil and filter changes during service. Super mechanical product as always from Toyota, but not much else.
