Our Verdict

Unlike other cars in the segment, the Toyota Etios Cross is mainly made for driving appeal rather than showing off with it. It is made to be a utility vehicle with good efficiency for economical use. Portrayed to be a cross country car, this doesn’t quite match up to the name that it says. It does not have great engine performance and nor does it catch the curves on road. It is a simple car basically designed to help commuters within the city limits to travel from one place to another with at good mileage.
