When it comes to exterior of the new 2019 Toyota Etios, we can say that this car will keep most of its recognizable features already seen on the current model. However, being the next-generation vehicle, it will have to undergo some significant changes and improvements. The front fascia, especially, will acquire a sportier look than the one seen on the current model. You will notice the new V-shaped chrome grille with black details and new set of headlights that will be using the latest LED technology. It is possible that they will get a boomerang shape. On the other hand, there are unique and round fog lights and a restyled bumper. This stylish sedan will definitely enhance its body appearance. It has also been said that the new Etios will be standing on new 15-inch alloy wheels, but this information has not been confirmed yet. We have as well been informed that this model will be available in several new paint colors and in four different trims, so the equipment you get will depend on the trim you choose.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Etios can be described as modern and hopefully upgraded, especially in terms of technology. This model is expected to be comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate five passengers, with enough headroom and legroom and, of course, the space for your luggage. Also, we hope for some high-quality materials and leather seats, but that will probably depend on the trim you have chosen. The interior will probably come in two tones, offering ivory and dark color as a combination. The dashboard will come significantly improved and with a multifunctional steering wheel. You will also get a touch screen for the latest infotainment system and numerous options such as Wi-Fi, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, loudspeakers and many more. The new Etios will also be well-equipped in terms of safety, including ABS and EBD.
None of the information about the powertrain of the new 2019 Toyota Etios has been confirmed, but two possible engines have been discussed. The first option would come with a 1.2-liter four-cylinder 16V DOGC engine and its 79 horsepower and 77 pound-feet of torque. It would be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The other version is diesel and offers a 1.5-liter four-cylinder 8V with 67 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque.
