Toyota has introduced a Dual Tone Limited Edition of the already popular Etios Liva. The new model is based on the top variant, the Liva VX, and comes in two engine versions. The limited Dual Tone car will only be available in select cities in India.
In terms of design upgrades, the Liva Dual Tone variant features the standard white tone body of the Liva with slight red accents on the front grille and headlights. The top including the roof of the car is completely black.
The Etios Liva is already available in regular dual-tone variants of orange, white and red exteriors accompanied with the black color roof, however, the limited edition is launched in the white exterior only along with appealing red inserts all over the car which are not present in the standard dual-tone variant.

The new limited edition Toyota Etios Liva gets a dual-tone grille in red & black colors, red door handles, red inserts on headlights, boot and the side. The roof is, however, complete back in line with the dual-tone theme of the car.
As for the interior, red accents are given around the gear knob and AC vents. The car also gets a new 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that also works as the display for the back reversing camera, as opposed to the standard Liva which has a double din audio system and no reversing camera.
The new dual-tone variant gets the 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 80PS power at 104Nm peak torque, and a 1.4-litre diesel engine that generates 68PS power at 170Nm peak torque, the same engine as the standard Livo.
As the limited dual-tone edition is inspired by the Liva VX, it gets all the features of the variant including rear defogger, foldable and electrically adjustable ORVMs, cooled glovebox, steering-mounted controls, tilt-adjustable steering and 15-inch alloys. The car has also been equipped with advanced security features like dual front airbags, keyless entry, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

As for the price, the petrol variant of the limited edition Liva costs at Rs 6.51 lakh against the Rs 6.2 lakh - 6.3 lakh cost of the standard Liva. The diesel variant of the new car is priced at Rs 7.66 lakh against the Rs 7.35 lakh - Rs 7.45 lakh cost of the standard Liva diesel variant.
So, the limited edition dual-tone car will cost you about Rs 21,000 more than the standard dual-tone Liva, which seems only justified given the additional features and equipment it gets.
