Etios Interior

1.       Horizontal basic dimensions are adapted for the instrument panel to emphasize spaciousness.

2.       Information Area: The combination meter is centrally mounted and it has simple configuration, additional to this indicators and warnings (Driver Seatbelt, Door Ajar, Fuel Level, and Hand Brake) are displayed at the bottom of the meter.

3.       Operation Area: The switches are practically positioned and are easy to operate.

4.       A urethane 3‐spoke steering wheel with a built‐in air bag is adopted, the steering has a strong grip.

5.       All models come standard with Air Conditioner.  

·      It offers best in class air conditioner performance which is achieved by the vertically positioned air conditioner registers as opposed to the conventional horizontal positioning.

·        This also ensures that the driver arm and steering wheel does not obstruct air flow to the rear of the vehicle and the air conditioner performance is enjoyed by all passengers throughout the vehicle.

Passive Safety:

·     Impact Absorption – A body structure that disperses collision energy to many different parts for increased collision energy absorption and a highly rigid body frame with efficiently placed high tensile steel sheets are adopted to suppress cabin deformation.

·         Airbags – SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) airbags are adopted to the driver and front passenger seat.

·        Seatbelts – 3 point ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) seatbelts are adopted for the front and outer rear seats and a 2 point seatbelt is adopted for the centre rear seat.

Etios Passive Safety


·       Etios boasts a newly developed 1.5L engine; this is a major advantage as competitors offer 1.4L engines.

·      Together with this performance advantage, it also offers excellent fuel consumption on par with smaller capacity engines.
