As per the latest details available, Maruti Suzuki has officially announced that its board has approved the supply of Vitara Brezza to Toyota Kirloskar Motor. The Toyota-Badged Maruti Vitara Brezza is expected to be launched in August 2020. Rumoured to launch as Toyota Urban Cruiser, it will be the second rebadged Maruti product that will be launched with the Toyota branding in the Indian market.

Toyota Glanza, the rebadged Maruti Baleno was the first-ever product launched after the partnership of the two automobile giants. The 2020 Maruti Vitara Brezza was recently launched with minor cosmetic changes which include the likes of an updated front grille, new LED headlights and taillights. Powering the SUV is a 1.5-litre BS6 petrol engine while the brand has discontinued the last-gen diesel engine since it has not been updated to meet the BS6 emission norms.

Powering the Toyota’s version of Vitara Brezza will be the same 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 105HP and a peak torque of 138Nm. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while the 4-speed automatic gearbox will also be available as an option.

The SUV is expected to feature similar designing traits as well as the mechanics when compared to the Maruti Vitara Brezza though one can expect Toyota to offer a better warranty package with the same.

Once launched in India, the Toyota-Badged Maruti Vitara Brezza will feature a heavier price tag than the ongoing Maruti Suzuki variant which is currently available in the market at a starting price tag of INR 7.34 lakh (ex-showroom). The rebadged SUV from Toyota will compete in the market with the likes of Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon and more.

According to the latest buzz, the Toyota Supra sports car is being evaluated by the brand for a possible India launch by the end of this fiscal year. Toyota is currently dominating the MPV and SUV segment with the Innova and Fortuner while the addition of a sports car would be much appreciated by the audience.

Toyota Supra is the sports car that has been a part of the brand’s race car division while it will be imported to India via the CBU route. The sports car has been officially christened as Gazoo Racing or GR Supra and is based on a similar platform as seen on the other racing cars in the brand’s division such as GR-Four. The Supra nametag made its comeback after 17 years back in 2019 at the Detroit Motor Show while carrying on a legacy of more than 50 years from its equally appealing predecessors.

The retro sports car design with sweeping headlight units at the front imparts it a futuristic outlook while the addition of gaping air intakes mated to the front grille on the open chin bumper adds on to its appeal. The spoiler integrates neatly with the rear bumper which offers a close resemblance to the Supra Mk4 while the unique LED tail lamps further offer it a modish appeal.

The driver-focused Toyota Supra sports car has been equipped with major premium bits inside the cabin which includes the likes of premium leather seats, robust 6.5-inch infotainment screen that can be controlled via the rotary knob positioned below the gear knob.

Powering the Toyota Supra is a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder, twin-scroll, turbocharged engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 335 Bhp and a peak torque of 495 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed transmission while the sports car is capable of accelerating from 0-100kmph in just 4.1 seconds.

The top speed of the sports car stands at 250 kmph while the equal 50:50 weight distribution offers better aerodynamics. If and when launched in India, the Toyota Supra will be priced around INR 85 lakh to INR 95 lakh (ex-showroom) and will be considered as the brand’s flagship product.

BS6 Toyota Fortuner Variant-Wise Price List: Toyota has recently upgraded its Fortuner SUV to comply with the BS6 emission norms. In terms of pricing, it remains unchanged when compared to the BS4 model of the SUV. The price range starts at INR 28.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The BS6 model of the Fortuner is available with two engine options: a 2.7-litre petrol engine and a 2.8-litre diesel engine.

Mechanically, the 2.7-litre petrol engine is capable of producing 166 HP of maximum power along with 245 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The diesel model, on the other hand, churns out 177 HP of power and 420 Nm of utmost torque. It gets paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

There is also an option for a six-speed automatic gearbox for both the engine options. However, the 4×4 drive system is only available in the diesel variant of the SUV. The automatic model of the diesel Fortuner generates a slightly higher torque figure at 450 Nm.

The bookings for the BS6 Toyota Fortuner are already open while the car remains the same cosmetically. It is a bit surprising that the brand has not revised the prices of the BS6 model. The interior of the SUV also remains untouched. It continues to feature the same leather interior and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation.

In terms of safety, the SUV is equipped with 7 airbags, hill-hold assist control, ABS and EBD. The closest rival to the Toyota Fortuner is Ford’s Endeavour. Here is the variant-wise price list for the BS6-compliant model of the Fortuner.

BS6 Toyota Fortuner Price List

Petrol Variants

  • Fortuner 4×2 MT: INR 28.18 lakh
  • Fortuner 4×2 AT: Rs 29.77 lakh

Diesel Variants

According to recent reports, the Toyota Urban Cruiser which is a rebadged Maruti Vitara Brezza will be launched in India sometime in the late July or August 2020. The brand is expected to unveil the SUV in the Indian markets after the nationwide lockdown to curb the coronavirus pandemic is lifted.

Coming to the rebadged version of the Vitara Brezza, the Urban Cruiser is not going to feature every similar trait of the compact Maruti SUV. Toyota has decided to follow a different path with their rebadged SUV when compared to the Toyota Glanza which is a rebadged Maruti Baleno and features only Toyota badging for differentiation.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser is expected to be somehow tweaked by the brand upfront. The inexpensive soft parts like the plastic used are expected to be revised while the rear is also expected to be changed a bit in terms of the material used for the taillights. The brand is further expected to retain the other expensive bits like metal sheets and alloy wheels just as the ones used on the Maruti Vitara Brezza.

New Toyota Raize
Urban Cruiser is Expected to Get Some Styling Cues from the New Toyota Raize

Coming to the interiors, the Vitara Brezza has been imparted a dull grey colour scheme while Toyota is expected to offer the Urban Cruiser a splash of colour to offer it a fresher appeal as well as impart an upmarket look. The Urban Cruiser will be the first-ever SUV from the brand that will feature a mild hybrid system mated to a manual gearbox. The manual version of the SUV is also expected to offer better fuel efficiency than the one offered by the non-hybrid manual variant of the Vitara Brezza.

Apart from this, both the manual and automatic versions of the Toyota Urban Cruiser will be mated to mild hybrid technologies though the brand is not expected to offer them an ISG external badging. Once launched in India, the Urban Cruiser will be priced in the same vicinity of INR 7 – INR 11 lakh just like the Vitara Brezza though the brand is expected to sweeten up the deal further with impressive warranty schemes for the high-end variants.

According to recent reports, the Toyota-Badged Maruti Suzuki Brezza that is expected to be launched sometime soon is going to be christened by the brand as Urban Cruiser. The Toyota Urban Cruiser was already available in the developed markets before though the brand had offered the subcompact SUV a much softer profile.

The word “Urban Cruiser” has been drawn from the brand’s existing and very famous SUVs like Toyota Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser Prado that have been a cherished part of the brand’s lineage. Coming to the design language of the rebadged Maruti Brezza that will launch as the Toyota Urban Cruiser, one can expect the SUV to feature a few exterior changes such as a redesigned front grille while featuring a Toyota badging, just like Toyota Glanza is a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno hatchback.

The brand already had the trademarks like ‘Toyota Urban Cruiser’ and ‘Urban Cruiser’ registered under its name which is expected to be offered to the rebadged SUV without any conflict. Powering the Toyota Urban Cruiser will be the same K15B 1.5-litre petrol engine equipped on the BS6 model of the Maruti Vitara Brezza that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 105 HP at 4,400 rpm and a peak torque of 138 Nm at 6,000 rpm.

The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while the 4-speed automatic gearbox will also be available as an option. The interior of the rebadged SUV is also expected to feature similar bits and pieces just like the donor model that features the latest touchscreen infotainment unit as well as multiple other premium features.

The upcoming rebadged SUV from Toyota will be based on the facelifted Maruti Vitara Brezza that was showcased by the brand at the Auto Expo 2020. The brand is further expected to offer the Urban Cruiser an interesting safety package in addition to offering effective warranty schemes so as to make it more attractive to the customers just like the Toyota Glanza.

The images of the 2021 Toyota Hilux pickup truck have recently surfaced online ahead of the official launch. The images showcase two different variants of the pickup truck that have been heavily facelifted and features almost identical styling when compared to the other SUVs offered by the brand. Some reports also suggest that the leaked images could be the internal photos of mid-cycle refresh that have been allotted to the pickup truck though, the production variant might feature some changed bits or so.

Coming to the prominent changes, the 2021 Toyota Hilux pickup truck now features a large trapezoidal grille at the front mated to either chrome detailing or paint depending on the different variants. In addition to this, the different trim features in the leaked images have been showcased with either a combination of revised halogen and LED headlamps as well as a full LED setup for the high-spec variants. The brand has further revised the front bumper which is now mated to a new skid-plate unit while the edges have been adorned with faux “L-shaped” air vents to add to the muscular profile further.

Apart from this, the brand has also revised the design of the wheels on the facelifted pickup truck while the rest of the outer detailing remains the same when compared to the current-gen version. Coming to the updated rear profile, the brand has equipped the 2021 Toyota Hilux with a tweaked tail light setup which is further mated to “E-shaped” LED units though rest of the rear design elements have been carried forward from the current-gen version. There has been no information revealed on the revised cabin of the facelifted pickup truck though one can expect it to feature some premium bits authentic to the brand’s SUVs.

Toyota is further expected to revise the petrol and diesel engines of the truck as well as offer 2WD and 4WD systems as an option. The brand is also expected to unveil the all-new turbodiesel V6 engine for the performance-oriented version of the upcoming pickup truck that will offer powerful performance and will be mated to a 4WD technology. The brand has no current plans for the launch of 2021 Hilux in India considering that its three-row sibling Toyota Fortuner is doing good in the Indian markets already. One can expect the 2021 Toyota Hilux to be launched in the international markets in the coming months.

According to recent rumours, the Toyota C-HR is the next SUV that is expected to grace the Indian markets. The brand is currently considering the launch of the compact SUV in India as the SUV market has been flourishing tenfold when compared to the compact sedan segment.

At present, Toyota India doesn’t feature any compact SUV for the Indian audience under its badging except for the Fortuner which is a full-size premium SUV, not affordable to a larger customer base. Even though the brand has decided to introduce the rebadged Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in the Indian markets, it will just cater to the needs of customers looking for an entry-level SUV only.

The brand is expected to fill the gap between the Fortuner and the Toyota-badged Vitara Brezza with the all-new C-HR compact SUV that will attract as many customers thus leading to better sales. If or when launched in India, one can expect the C-HR to get a starting price tag of around INR 15 lakh and equipped with a host of premium features that will make it compete against the likes of Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Kia Seltos and more.

The probability of the launch of the Toyota C-HR has been shared in the context of witnessing the SUV being tested on the Indian roads many times in the past few months. The crossover styling with a sporty design language is capable of attracting a larger chunk of the audience in the Indian markets while the user-friendly features that have been imparted to the C-SUV is a plus.

The Toyota C-HR that is currently available in the international markets like the United States, has been equipped with LED headlight set up while the sloping roofline adds to its unique profile further. The cabin has been shod with a five-seat set up with plenty of legroom while featuring dual-zone climate control as standard.

The brand has equipped the SUV with power-adjustable heated driver seat while the safety quirks add to its USP further. The SUV features 10 airbags and gets cruise control, pedestrian warning, pre-collision warning, lane departure assist and more. The brand has offered the 2020 model of the C-HR with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The customers in the international markets can avail the Toyota C-HR in two powertrains namely a 1.8-litre petrol hybrid and 2.0-lite turbo petrol engine. Both the engine variants have been mated to a CVT automatic gearbox. More information on the launch of the SUV is expected to be revealed in the coming months though if launched in India, one can expect it to make it to the markets sometime in the next year.

Toyota Yaris Cross, the smallest SUV in the clan has been recently revealed by the brand in Europe. The brand has based the all-new SUV on the Toyota Yaris hatchback that is available across European countries.

The SUV measures 4,180mm in length while the wheelbase stands at 2,560mm which is similar to the Yaris hatchback. The brand has equipped the small SUV with authentic Toyota styling with certain bits and pieces borrowed from the Toyota C-HR as well as the recently updated Toyota Harrier. The Yaris Cross will be positioned under the brand’s portfolio below the Toyota C-HR compact SUV.

The overall profile of the SUV imparts it a crossover-inspired outlook while the prominent wheel arches further add to its sporty character. The brand has equipped the SUV with chunkier 18-inch alloy wheels though those are expected to be made available with the highest-spec trim only.

Coming to the cabin details, the SUV has been imparted with fine interior bits complimenting its sporty exterior profile. The cabin further features ambient lighting while the dashboard features a floating infotainment unit.

According to the TKM officials, the Toyota RAV4 SUV is a more suitable product for the Indian markets when compared to the Toyota Corolla Altis sedan. The premium compact SUV segment in the Indian markets is one of the most sought-after segments for the customers when it comes to exceptional styling as well as affordable prices.

Since the Indian customers have shown great enthusiasm for the likes of midsize SUVs like Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta, MG Hector and Kia Seltos, the TKM officials now believe that a compact SUV from Toyota is what the Indian markets need next. The launch of the Toyota RAV4 in India would be one of the wisest steps taken by the brand considering the sales factor.

Commenting on considering the RAV4 launch for India, Naveen Soni, Senior VP – Sales & Service, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), stated – “We have been watching the market response and we witness that customer preference is evolving in the C segment from sedan to SUV. Considering such evolving market needs, we will decide on our further course of action.”

Based on the brand’s TNGA platform, the Toyota RAV4 measures 4,600mm in length, 1,855mm in width and 1,685mm in height. The wheelbase of the compact SUV stands at 2,690mm, making it compete against the Tata Harrier with almost similar dimensions.

The Toyota RAV4 is available in the international markets in three petrol powertrains including an A25A-FXS 2.5-litre petrol engine, an M20A-FKS 2.0 litre petrol unit as well as A25A-FKS 2.5-litre petrol engine.

As the SUV has not been imparted a diesel engine, the lack of one can make it lose customers in the Indian markets. The brand is further advised to test the customer response for the launch of the RAV4 in India and then make the final decision.
