Variety is the spice of life! The Indian car customer loves that spice. Manufacturers are the merchants that need to bring the spice before the competition reaches the market. And if the competition reaches the market before them, the car has to be better, more feature loaded and a total Value For Money product. Like the XUV300 recently. The car came after every major Indian manufacturer had an offering in the form of a sub-four meter compact SUV in India. The Indian car makers have to make sure they have the correct combination of vehicles to make the dent in the market. The Toyota Harrier Competition SUV will be tasked to just that.
Toyota Harrier Competition SUV – The need?
Toyota is a very serious manufacturer. So when alleged reports and rumors come that they want to enter a new segment, it’s got to be an important one. The Toyota Yaris was one important new segment. Toyota is also going to get the Toyota Brezza SUV and the Toyota Baleno hatchback soon, thanks to it’s deal with Maruti. Thus, the Toyota Harrier Competition SUV makes complete sense. An SUV that will compete with the Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass, Hyundai Creta and the Mahindra XUV500. An SUV the rest of the manufactures will be very cautious of. Toyota makes some of the best SUVs in the business and we expect a Toyota to be more dependable, more feature loaded and carry forward a good resale value. With the Toyota Harrier Competiton SUV, the whole SUV line up for Toyota will become very attractive.
Toyota Harrier Competition SUV Launch
