Driver’s corner

A tough, reliable and hip Japanese hatchback, the EtiosLiva does everything you’d expect and more. EtiosLiva is just what you need for those long summer drives out on the streets of Nepal!

The Exterior

The front end of the car is quite deceiving as it gives off a sleek and elegant look of a sedan while the back is definitely a hatchback.

The Interior

The whole console looks a little less button-busy and complicated, therefore giving off an elegant and classy look. The fancy dashboard is definitely the highlight of the interior design. It’s a car that is spacious and packed with extra gadgets that make you feel at ease on the road. For hot summer days, Liva is equipped with a powerful air-conditioning system with multidirectional vents and blowers along with a 13 L Cooled Glove Box for drinks that’s bound to keep you refreshed on the go. Liva performs well both with and without the AC, unlike other cars manufactured in neighboring countries. The reliable Japanese giant has also outfitted this car with an adjustable front seat to match your levels of comfort.


Liva is equipped with a powerful inline 4 cylinder engine performance that leaves no room for disappointment. Although, there’s absolutely no doubt that Toyota would compromise its performance, Liva is a perfect blend of high performance and fuel efficiency. Pick up, acceleration, breaks and cruise are all above and beyond the expected. A major advantage is the light and powered steering allowing for a smooth handling of the car.


Liva is a wonderful car for youngsters as well as a family. There’s plenty of leg room for both the front and back seat passengers and it’s equipped with very comfortable seats. Although, Toyota did compromise on the height of the car. The Audio system comes with USB, AUX-IN, Steering mounted controls and a Bluetooth system, yet the sound system is quite average and not out of the ordinary. Surprisingly, the single wiper not only provided a cool sporty look but also covered a larger area.

The only major drawback that comes to mind is that although hatchbacks tend to have a relatively small trunk this car has a smaller trunk than expected. Although it’s okay for small families, it’s a nuance for someone who travels often and requires luggage space.

The compact size of the car along with a good clearance of 170mm and suspension is perfect for unpaved roads in Nepal.

Toyota EtiosLiva is available in both diesel and petrol
