BELLS AND WHISTLES FOR ETIOS
Etios is one of the zippiest performers in its segment – and it’s about to get better…
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.
