After the success of the Etios and the recent launch of the Etios Liva, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) further expanded the Etios product range by announcing the launch of the diesel variants of Etios and Etios Liva. The vehicles are powered with a refined 1.4 litre D-4D Common Rail Diesel Engine that generates maximum power of 68PS @3800 rpm and highest torque of 170NM @1800-2400 rpm. Toyota’s D-4D technology, the most advanced diesel technology offered by Toyota, used in Innova, Corolla Altis, Fortuner, Prado and LC 200 has earned a reputation the world-over for its high quality, durability and reliability.
The 1.4 litre D-4D Common Rail Diesel Engine with intercooler offers an ideal combination of excellent driving performance and best-in-class mileage. The high performance engine of the Etios provides flat torque leading to less gear shifting finally resulting in improved fuel efficiency.
