Report suggests that a stiffer setup will complement the sporty character of the car.
We all love Initial D, don't we! Well, we might not have the Toyota AE-86 at our disposal but a hotter version of the Etios Liva won't hurt either. You see, it's well balanced, looks like a proper JDM car and with a better powertrain and suspension setup, the Liva could prove to be a cracker of a car.
Economic Times reports that Toyota has plans of launching a sportier version of the Etios Liva next month. A 1.5-litre petrol engine, stiffer suspension, wider wheels and better braking capabilities will find their way into what could be the real Hot Hatch of today. ET also added that the plastics on the new car will be of better quality.
With plans to launch this hotter version of the Liva, Toyota will win a lot of hearts!

The picture used above is for representation purposes only. We too are eagerly waiting to see the car! As for the Initial D reference, don't expect the Etios Liva to get an FR layout like the Hachi-Roku though. Toyota's brave decision of bringing a petrol hot hatch to the market needs to be appreciated. Time for some old school fun then!
