    68 bhp makes liva stand in line with Figo diesel, so sufficient power… mileage of 23.59 kmpl means, on-road, we may get 18-20 kmpl… and its a proper 5 seater. only if you ignore some bad plastic bits, the car is a promising buy.

    Etios is an ugly looking ripped off vehicle and the same applies for Liva… Manza offers an unmatched 90ps wid class interiors… The petrol engine was too noisy.. I think the diesel version would suppress a bass tube easily and unbearable vibrations… Ppl who bought etios are not xactly happy customers… Its a cheat on brand name…

    The exterior of LIVA is good but the interior is too worse, as compared to any INDIAN hatchback!
    Toyota made a great car but due to interior it’s proven that TOYOTA doesn’t have experience in developing interior for INDIAN consumers!

    My Alto K10 gives 68ps of power out of 1000cc and only 760kgs. So power to weight ration is best in the class. And I get video games like control steering and maneuvering this car. On road priced me about 4 lakh. Of course with 2 wiper string not single as in Etios :)
