Toyota Etios to be launched in May

Toyota Etios to be launched in May

The Toyota Etios which was shown at last years Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) is set to be launched in South Africa on the 21st May this year.

The Etios is meant to fill in the gap for Toyota in the Sub-B segment which was previously filled by the Toyota Tazz which was discontinued more than five years ago.

Not much has been said with regards to the vehicles specifications but we know it will be powered by a 1.5 litre engine. If the specs of the Etios are similar to those offered on the version sold in India, the 1.5 litre engine should have a power rating of 66 Kw at 5600 rpm and 132 Nm of torque at 3000 rpm.

The overall wheelbase of the car is 2550 mm and according to Toyota the Etios hatch will have the biggest boot (595litres) in its class.

The Etios will be sold as both a hatch and a sedan. There will be two model grades offered in South Africa, the XI and XS. Both model grades will have body-coloured bumpers and 14-inch steel wheels with full wheel trims. The XS models also get a colour-coded grille and door handles as well as a few chrome accents.

Toyota will be revealing more about the Etios in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for additional updates.
