Sportier Etios for SA

13.10.2014

THE Toyota Etios is moving up in the world; we’ve seen a crossover version of the slightly vanilla but extremely popular budget option and now a sports version has emerged.

The new model gets an aero kit comprising a front spoiler, body-coloured side skirts, rear bumper spoiler, roof spoiler, badging and 15-inch alloys round off the extrovert exterior package. The Etios Sport is available in four hues: sparkling silver metallic, midnight black, retro red metallic and super blue metallic.

Inside, the Sport model gets a double din audio system with USB and AUX-in ports (as per Etios Xs) but adds extra functionality in the form of Bluetooth to facilitate hands-free mobile phone operation. Performance enthusiasts will be slightly disappointed to learn that the same 16-valve DOHC 1.5-litre engine pushing out 66kW/132Nm is unchanged for the added model

It does get a lot of kit standard with colour-coded exterior trim, front fog lights, remote central locking, electric windows all round, air conditioning, power steering, seven cup holders, 13-litre refrigerated glove box, seatbelt warning, dual front airbags and ABS with EBD.

The Etios Sport will retail for R153 500 and is limited to just 200 examples.
