Toyota Kirloskar Motor is evaluating few vehicles including both rebadged one’s and all-new unit, hence expanding it’s portfolio even further in order to cater the demands of buyers with different taste and preferences.
Below we have listed out top 5 upcoming Toyota Cars which are slated to launch in India soon.
1. Toyota Hilux
The Toyota Hilux is the most anticipated Pickup Truck Amongst the Indian off-road Maniacs. Considering the fact there were no primary rivals of Isuzu D Max V-Vross, Toyota is now keen to keep it’s hand into this segment by launching it’s mighty pickup truck Hilux by Diwali (November) 2021.
The Hilux will share it’s underpinnings with Innova and Fortuner and will be offered with 2 engine options, a 2.4L Turbo-Diesel Mill producing 150 PS and 360 NM of power and torque respectively and a 2.8L Turbo-Diesel Engine producing 204 PS of power and 500 NM of Torque.
2. Toyota-Badged Ertiga
The rebadged version of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is also on the cards of India launch. The Japanese Automaker will do the same thing which they did with Glanza and urban Cruiser.
A slight change to the exteriors are expected with the styling of this Toyota MPV. It will be powered by the same 1.5-litre k15B naturally aspirated petrol engine (105 PS/138 Nm) as the present Ertiga. Nevertheless, the 1.5L diesel is also expected to power the MPV.
3. Toyota Ciaz (Belta)
According to the rumors , Toyota is likely to replace the Yaris with Rebadged version of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz which is expected to be named as ‘Belta’. This upcoming Mid-size sedan wont flaunt any major changes over the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz except for the Badging and revision of front profile.
Mechanically, it will be powered by the same 1.5-litre k15B naturally aspirated petrol engine (105 PS/138 Nm) used in the outgoing Ciaz, also we expect Maruti’s upcoming 1.5-litre diesel engine to be carried forward in this Sedan as well. The Toyota Belta is expected to launch in second half of this 2021.
4. Toyota-Maruti Midsize Crossover
This upcoming crossover is likely to replace Maruti Suzuki’s flagship Vehicle S-cross. Afcourse, will be manufactured jointly with Toyota. Reports suggest that, both the crossovers would have their own unique design and styling rather than being simply rebadged version of each other.
Expected to be powered by Maruti’s K15B naturally aspirated petrol engine (105 PS/138 Nm) ,which also does it’s duty under the hood of the S-Cross and the 1.5-litre diesel engine is also likely to do it’s duty here as well. Likely to launch by mid 2022, hence going up against the likes of Creta, Seltos, Kushaq etc.
5. Toyota LC300
Toyota recently unveiled LC300 in UAE and it received massive positive response. The Full-Size SUV is now based on an all-new platform which has now strengthened it’s solidity and simultaneously reduced it’s Kerb Weight by 200 Kilograms.
The Land Cruiser is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This setup generates 381 horsepower and 543 Nm of torque. Full-time four-wheel drive is standard.
