2020 Toyota Raize Interiors

Toyota Raize Brochre

The interiors of the vehicle dual-tone. The steering wheel of the vehicle is a simple one. A flat bottom engine would have been a bit sportier. The dual-tone is seen in small places. This is also seen around the AC vent surrounds. The black interiors make it look slightly small. A lighter colour for the seats and interiors would make it more spacious. These images have been leaked before its launch. The boot space of the vehicle seems huge. The rear seat has been made to look big by placing a kid as a reference for the legroom. We feel that the vehicle will be a bit cramped at the rear. To the advantage, there will be more boot space. The centre console of this vehicle feels like it is made by joining different elements from different cars together. The infotainment system does not feel like its in flow with the theme of the centre console. The instrument cluster seems borrowed from the Toyota Corolla.

The design of this Toyota Raize will be a bit boxy. According to the rendered images, the vehicle will sport some sharp lines.

Their front grille will resemble the Toyota Yaris. The vehicle will have a split set up for the grille. The lower portion for the grill will be much bigger than the upper part. The upper portion of the grill will be seen as an extension to the headlamp area. This will also include the daytime running light strip. The lower grill will have a trapezoidal shape.
