If you are planning to buy a Toyota Calya for your daily commute, then it is best to know the features they offer, including automatic or manual transmission options. Also, you need to know that the Toyota Calya is available in several variants, namely the E-STD manual, the E manual, the G manual and the G automatic.
Oia, the Toyota Calya has really undergone some enhancements since the facelift was introduced on September 16, 2019 or last year. Most notably, all types of airbags or airbags and anti-lock braking systems (ABS) are still in service until now, except for the minimum standard E-STD MT.
The difference between the two is evident in the appearance between the E and G variants, just as the G type fog light housing is wrapped in glossy black or piano black, while the E type is just plain black plastic. In addition, the G type itself is equipped with fog lamps, while the E type does not yet exist and only provides a location.
The Toyota Calya Type G has black or dark brown chrome trim on the front and rear of the body wraps. Maybe it makes it look more luxurious. While in the E-type, this part is accented with body color.
Another difference occurs in the turn signals in the rearview mirror, where the G model is equipped with turn signals and the E model is not. In addition, the color of the column of the E-type, the color of the B & C column on the side is the body color, while the color of the G-type column is black plastic.
For the interior differences, the most obvious is the color of the AC panel, where the E-type, AC center console dashboard and AC knob are black, while the G-type is silver.
In addition, there is a storage area under the AC panel for the G model. The E-type, on the other hand, does not exist. Starting with the door handles and AC exhaust vents, the chrome finish on the Calya G models feels luxurious, while the E-models are just plain black.
Oia, the silver Calya Type G accessories are located on the trim pieces and the armrests on the steering wheel crossmember, while the E-Type is only light brown in seat color. As a result, the Type G looks more luxurious.
At the same time, some other differences, such as the retractable mirrors feature that can be electrically folded in the cabin, are only available for the Calya Type G, while they are not available for the E-type.
Then, the Type G hosts a touch-screen monitor, while the Type E still looks like a regular double din with a monochrome display and does not support video display.
The “audio steering switch” can also be found on the steering wheel of the Calya G as an audio setting button, which is not yet present on the E. There are also automatic and manual G gearbox options, while the E does not have an automatic gearbox.
For the core of driving, all variants are the same, namely with a 1.2-liter engine with the same 3NR-VE code as the Etios Valco and used in combination with a 4-cylinder engine with inline Dual VVT-i, producing power at 6,000 rpm and torque up to 86 Tk and a maximum of 107 Nm at 4,200 rpm.
As a result of these differences, the price of each type varies.
