Japanese auto major, Toyota is now planning to launch a sportier and more powerful version of its flagship hatchback Etios Liva with some major modification next month with an aim to boost its sales in India. As per a report published on Economic Times today, the new Liva Variant will sport a 1500cc petrol engine, and the other major changes would consist re-tuned suspension, improved brakes and wider wheels to complement the additional power.

However Toyota Kirloskar Motor's Deputy Managing Director and COO (marketing and commercial), Sandeep Singh said, "There are several product plans going on in the company and I would not like to share them at this moment,"

The new Liva model will also use better quality plastic, so to give a more premium feel to the dashboard, switchgear and door panels. There will also be a new colour scheme given to the vehicle, so all these changes would certainly help the vehicle get better in quality, which has been facing criticism for the interior quality ever since its launch in India.

"The Etios sedan and Liva hatchback lack the quality benchmarks Toyota is known for globally," an industry analyst said. "As expected the new vehicle would have the some recipes of success that Toyota's Indian subsidiary desperately needs to make a dent in hatchback, India's largest car segment," the person added.
