The new small car from Toyota, the Etios Liva is, well another hatchback. It’s also one of the most popular small cars in India, having sold several units since its launch. The Etios Liva comes in both petrol & diesel variants; where the diesel variant is powered by a 1.4 Liter D-4D engine that can deliver a maximum power of 67BHP.
Maruti Swift recently got a makeover. There has been a steady increase in the sales of the Swift, making it a best seller on Indian road. The Swift is…yes, swift. It’s also cute, and in its new avatar it looks ready to regain whatever ground it may have lost due to its age and lack of upgrade.
