Adding some funk to its entry-level offering in the country, Toyota India has launched the Etios Liva special edition for this festive season with prices starting at Rs. 5.76 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The special edition version boasts of new exterior and interior elements for a sporty new look on the hatchback while there are new safety features on offer that will be available. The automaker has made no changes to the mechanicals and the car continues with the same petrol and diesel engine options.

In terms of aesthetics, the 2015 Toyota Etios Liva special edition gets done up with a dual tone paint job with the options of red or silver and contrast roof and pillars (including C-pillar) finished in black for that sporty touch. The automaker says the paint job is a first factory built for any car in this segment. Further, you get new 15-inch 10-spoke diamond cut alloy wheels and a matte black finished grille instead of the chrome unit to complete the look.

Inside the cabin, the 2015 Toyota Liva special edition comes with a new wood finished cabin with Bluetooth audio system and dual-tone seat fabric adding some freshness. The Japanese auto giant has also announced that the Liva will now come equipped with dual front SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) airbags as well as pre-tensioner and force limiter front seatbelts as standard. The automaker is offering a warranty of 3 years or 1,00,000 lakh kms on the hatchback, whichever comes first.

Things remain the same under the hood with the Toyota Liva drawing power from a 1.2-litre petrol motor producing 79 BHP and 104 Nm of torque. Diesel power comes from a 1.4-litre mill churning out 67 BHP and 170 Nm of torque. All engines come paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
