Toyota has struck a deal with Suzuki which will involve them using the Brezza and the Baleno. This move will help Toyota filling the gap in their line-up. It will be interesting how the Suzuki plant will cope with the added number of cars that it will need to produce along with the Toyota vehicles. Amidst all this, there was also news coming in last week about – 364 units have been manufactured and Maruti adding these units to its sales report. This is a point of contention where an OEM is not reporting the sales of a car wearing its badge and the sales is reported by the supplier.

The storage, instrument cluster and the seats. We will have to wait and see the car in person to see the bigger changes and some details that have been altered.
