Toyota Launches Etios Sport

Toyota South Africa has introduced a meaner-looking version of their top-selling hatchback: the Etios Sport.

If you were expecting power gains, you might be disappointed. The sportiness is limited to the aesthetic side of things. Under its hood sits the same 1.5-litre engine that does duty in the rest of the range, producing 66kW and 132Nm of torque.

The Etios Sport is available in four colours: Sparkling, Retro Red, Super Blue Metalic and Midnight Black. It has new additional features such as a front spoiler, body-coloured side skirts, rear bumper spoiler, roof spoiler and distinctive badging.

The cabin benefits from an upgraded tech-enhanced, double din audio system similar to the one fitted to the new Etios Cross. This unit comes with USB and AUX-in ports and adds extra functionality in the form of Bluetooth to facilitate hands-free mobile phone operation.
