The Indonesian market has been growing and almost every big car manufacturer is trying to launch its products there. Even Tata Motors is trying its best to give Tata Nano the golden opportunity to fetch a huge chunk of market share over there. Recently, the Datsun brand of inexpensive cars was rolled out in Indonesia, Russia and China by Mr. Carlos Ghosn, Renault-Nissan’s head.

There are many reasons of success if Toyota launched Toyota Etios Liva hatchback there. One of the main reasons is that an average Indonesian family has the same kind of budget for the car as an average Indian family does. The second best reason is that A and B segment cars are very easy to maintain.  The pricing strategy of Toyota would come to test here. rumor has it that the car will be priced around 120 to 170 million Indonesian Rupiah, which comes to 6.7 lakh to 9.5 lakh in Indian Rupess.

The Liva hatchback, which was seen on the Indonesian road, was very similar to the Indian model. And if Toyota Motors actually launched this one there, then it might be a possibility that the hatchback is shipped from India as CBU or could assemble CKD kits at Toyota’s Indonesian plant.  Liva might be rolled out in 1.4 litre petrol and 1.4 litre diesel motor options as present in India. The diesel engine might get a retuning.  When Toyota Etios Liva hatchback is launched in Indonesia, it is likely to be positioned above the low cost green car, called Toyota Agya.

It seems Toyota do not want to back-left from competitors at global level too. After getting much popularity in Indian auto market this well admired hatch would receive good response in Indonesia too.

The only selling point is great roominess and comfort for five six feet tall people. Spaciosness and comfort is best in its class and comparable to the sedan class! Also looks good.
