Toyota Etios diesel on test run, will be launched in September

     Toyota is already testing the Etios diesel in India. The recent AutocarIndia magazine has a picture of Etios diesel testing somewhere in Kerala. The Etios diesel is expected to be launched in September this year which is the time when the car sales will be on a high in India.

     Toyota Etios diesel will be powered by the same 1.4L diesel engine which also powers the Corolla Altis. The difference is, the diesel engine in Etios will not have variable turbo geometry, which means the Etios diesel will have power of 75 Bhp as compared to 87 Bhp of Corolla Altis. With 75 Bhp of power, the Etios diesel will have sufficient power to drive the car as Etios is much lighter than the Corolla diesel.

     The Etios diesel will be mainly tuned for fuel efficiency more than the performance and about the performance, who cares now as the fuel prices are rocketing. The Etios diesel will be priced Rs. 1 lakh more than the petrol model. After the launch of Etios diesel, Toyota will also launch the Etios Liva diesel soon.
