New Competition in compact SUV Segment “Toyota Raize”
Finally after knowing the real demands of Indians, Toyota plans to launch it’s new compact SUV in Indian market.
Toyota is very powerful brand in MPV & SUV segment because of Innova & Fortuner & still there is no competition of these.
To sustain the competition Toyota now plans to entered into Indian market by it’s new product name as Toyota Raize.
But Is new Toyota Raize contain features like Hyundai Venue & power like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza ?
Yes Toyota is not doing well in previous years specially like Glanza & Yaris product, but after seeing it’s features & specifications New Raize seems to be a tough competitor for these two.
Design & Dimension:
New Toyota Raize main USP is it’s sharp look which contain rocky design projector headlamps at front & thick chrome lining which connects both the headlights also Toyota logo at the front.
This time grills design & position, both maay changed. New grill shape like trapezoidal shape with black finish. Just by side rounded fog lamps along with DRL’S may positioned accurately.
Because it’s an compact SUV so it’s length is 3995 mm long. Apart from dimension side look features 17 inches of funky design diamond cut alloy wheels with dual tone exterior with black roof on the top & door chrome handles.
Back look conatines wrap around horizontal tail lamps with LED lighting, body cladding & bumper lighting as well.
Dimensions of Toyota Raize:
Length: 3995 mm
Width: 1620 mm
Height: 1695 mm
Interior Design of New Toyota Raize:
Toyota not officially reveal it’s full interior design, but showing some highlights which may contain dual tone interior with badge+black colour shade with rocky design dashboard & aluminium bits on AC vents.
Seats seems to be comfortable with fox leather seats. Most interesting parts is it’s centre console which may contain 8 inches of head up tough screen infotainment system which contain features like apple car play, android auto,bluetooth connectivity & aux compatibility.
The main point is that is new Toyota Raize contain connective feature like Hyundai Venue Blue link. Company not officially reval it’s connectivity feature but if contain than surely it beats Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza & if not than it become difficult for Toyota to sustain into Indian Market.
Engine Specification of All new Toyota Raize:
New Toyota Raize contain 1.0 litre turbo charged 3 cylinder 12 valve petrol engine which produces a power of 98 BHP with 140.2 Nm of torque.
Same engine option can be provided in Hyundai Venue but only in top model so if same engine option will provide in new Toyota Raize also in base model than surely Toyota Raize is one of the toughest competitor for Hyundai Venue.
In terms of transmission Toyota only provide 5-speed automatic CVT transmission. So majorly it’s a drawback for a company if manual transmission was not available there.
Overall we give 4.5 stars out of 5. Officially company may not reveal it’s pricing but we may hope to be vary in between 8-12 lakhs Rs.
