Toyota has launched its new Platinum Etios with some exciting new features and upgrades. Platinum Etios especially focuses on the family factor and has added features accordingly. Let us check out all the features one by one. I am writing for the New Toyota Etios blogging activity, in association with BlogAdda.
New Toyota Platinum Etios features
The front and rear bumpers of the Platinum Etios are redesigned along with the front grille, giving it an elegant look. The build of the new model is much stronger than the previous one. The boot space of the Platinum Etios is 592L, making it excellent to keep all your luggage. Leg space at the rear seats is increased, so the passengers can sit more comfortably. The height of the driver’s seat is now adjustable. To make it easier, audio controls are present on the steering wheels itself. Interiors have a new color code, black and ivory, with the new centrally located Optitron combimeter (This center shift might seem a bit different than what you see in regular cars). There is this cool wooden finish on the central cluster and the gear, which looks great. Overall, the car has a modern look now with all the design upgrades.
Considering all the safety features included in Platinum Etios, it can be considered as a perfect car for the whole family. There are now 3 seatbelts on the rear seat along with 3 head rest so that every passenger can travel safely. The seatbelts are built with special PTFL (Pre-Tensioners Force Limiters) hardware that will reduce the impact on chest while collision or emergency braking. They also have a feature for children, called as ISOFIX child seat lock, which is rarely seen in Indian cars. Airbags are present for the safety of front seat passenger and driver. To avoid accidents, Platinum Etios has ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution). Other features include rear-centre armrest, electrically operated ORVMs (Outer Rear View Mirror),reverse sensor and central locking system.

For the braking system they have ventilated disc at the front and drum at the back. The wheelbase is of 2.550m and the fuel tank capacity is 45litres. The turning circle radius is 4.9m for the Platinum Etios, which is quite good. The dimensions of the tires for the petrol version are 175/70 R 14 and for the diesel 185/60 R 15.
