This is the brand new Toyota Etios Concept, a new design study that previews the new small cars from the Japanese manufacturer. The new concept was unveiled today at the New Dehli Motor Show and according to the manufacturer what you see in the photos is actually 90% production ready.
If you thought that this is going to be a rival for the popular Tata Nano, you can forget about this idea, as Toyota is planning to sell this car at a price of $10,000.
However, do not expect it on any European market because the manufacturer does not have any plans to adapt it in order to sell it on other markets.
The new Etios is based on the all-new platform and it will be offered in two versions, a hatchback and a saloon. The saloon is set to go on sale first, by the end of this year while the hatchback will come three months later.
Under the hood, the new car will offer two engine options: 1.2 and 1.5-litre DOHC petrol engines. A diesel engine was not taken in consideration at this moment, but it will be offered for sure, later.
The new Toyota Etios will be sold also in Russia and South America, besides the Indian market and the Japanese manufacturer hopes to sell over 70,000 units of the car in India in the first year.
