Fol­low­ing the trend of in­di­vid­u­al­ity and buy­ers’ need for more ex­pres­sive per­sonal trans­port, the limited-edi­tion Etios Sport fea­tures a strik­ing bi-tone colour scheme. The black roof and pil­lars are paired with ei­ther Glacier White or Retro Red lower-body fin­ish­ing to make the Sport stand out from the rest of the range. Com­ple­ment­ing the con­trast­ing two-tone ar­range­ment is a black ra­di­a­tor grille, black ex­te­rior mir­rors and black treat­ment for the rear-roof spoiler. The Sport model is avail­able ex­clu­sively in hatch­back guise.

Up­grades to the en­tire range in­clude a new Op­titron in­stru­ment clus­ter, pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion to the driver with greater res­o­lu­tion and clar­ity. A new dig­i­tal-sweep tachome­ter is po­si­tioned on the left, with a full-sweep speedome­ter com­plet­ing the gauge lay­out. The en­try-level Xi model re­ceives an ad­di­tional up­grade in the form of power win­dows in the rear – now pro­vid­ing mo­torised win­dow op­er­a­tion right around.

The Etios range re­mains a sta­ple in Toy­ota SA’S pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cle sta­ble, av­er­ag­ing around 1 000 sales per month.
