Toyota may call this a concept, but it's close to production and will go on sale in India later this year where its primary competition will be vehicles like the Skoda Fabia and Maruti/Suzuki Swift. With an expected price tag of around $10,000 it's four times more expensive than a Tata Nano but also powered by an engine with twice the number of cylinders.

In addition to India, Toyota plans to offer the Etios in Russia and South America.
