For Brazil, Toyota Motors might install an ethanol complaint petrol engine for Toyota Etios twins as this fuel is compulsory for the Brazilian market. This change would be done in both Etios sedan and Etios Liva hatchback. Hence there is a possibility that diesel engine options might be ruled out for Brazil. Just like India, in Brazil as well both these cars will be introduced as entry level cars. Some changes in the interiors and other specifications are also expected for Brazil.
