Toyota, as of today, has a total of 7 products in its India lineup. The lineup includes 2 sedans, 4 SUVs and 1 MPV. With that being said, the brand is looking to further expand its portfolio in the country in the coming time. With a wide portfolio, the brand will aim to better penetrate the market and reach more customers. This will eventually help the brand improve its sales figures in the country which will further result in an improved business case for Toyota. In today’s article, we will look at 5 upcoming Toyota cars that are expected in the brand’s India lineup in the coming time.

Which to buy – Tata Safari or Toyota Innova Crysta?

Toyota Hilux

5 upcoming Toyota cars

We expect pickup trucks to trend in the near future. Toyota Hilux is a product that the brand could use to gain on this trend. The Hilux is a Fortuner based pickup truck. The Fortuner already enjoys a huge fan base in the country. The Hilux can capitalize on the popularity of the Toyota Fortuner as well. Moreover, the Isuzu V-Cross enjoys a monopoly in the country as of now. With the Hilux now expected, the competition might take an interesting turn, which will ultimately be beneficial for the customers.

Toyota Supra

5 upcoming Toyota cars

The new Supra is under evaluation by Toyota. We believe that Toyota should definitely bring this product to showcase Supra’s legacy to the customers here. The car comes powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder engine that makes 382bhp and 500Nm of torque. This unit comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

New Toyota Land Cruiser

Powerful engine, solid build quality and premium interiors are the key characteristics of the Land Cruiser. This full-size SUV oozes massive road presence, making it the top choice for many. Toyota had to discontinue the previous-gen SUV due to the strict BS6 emission norms. With the new Land Cruiser (LC300) now launched in the global markets, we expect Toyota to bring it here.

Toyota Creta competition

Hyundai Creta

Toyota is expected to be closely working on a C-segment SUV in partnership with Maruti. The C-SUV segment has been one of the hottest in the country for quite some time now. Maruti and Toyota do need a product to take on cars like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and recently-launched Skoda Kushaq. The product is mostly expected to be based on Toyota’s TNGA platform.

Toyota RAV4

5 upcoming Toyota cars

Toyota RAV4 sits as a premium SUV in the brand’s global lineup. The RAV4 becomes a great option for buyers who want a car that comes based on a monocoque chassis. Cars like these offer better cabin comfort when compared to cars that come based on a ladder-on-frame chassis. Also, the RAV4 is globally available with petrol and petrol hybrid engines. We expect Toyota to place RAV4 in competition with products like Citroen C5 Aircross, Hyundai Tucson and Jeep Compass. The availability of hybrid tech could give Toyota RAV4 a good push in the country.

Toyota Ertiga & Ciaz

As mentioned above, Toyota under its JV with Maruti is coming up with a rebadged version of the Ciaz. The car is mostly expected to replace the Yaris. We do not expect to see major changes on the rebadged Ciaz except for elements like a new grille and new alloys. Along with the Ciaz, we expect Toyota to rebadge the Ertiga as well. This car can very well fill the gap between the Urban Cruiser and the Innova. We expect Toyota to keep the mid-spec & top-spec Ertiga for its lower variants and use the XL6 for its higher variants.
