Toyota has been an aspirational brand in the Indian market. It is famous for its reliability and fuss-free ownership experience. It is currently enjoying great sales from the Fortuner and Innova. But it is going through a lull phase when it comes to new car launches. The last new car from Toyota was the Yaris in 2018. Since then, Toyota has launched cars like the Glaza, Urban Cruiser and facelifted the Fortuner and Innova. But these cars are a rebadged version of Maruti cars. So effectively, Toyota hasn’t launched a new car for three years now. It can bring some cars from its global portfolio to feel this void. In today’s article, we will see Toyota upcoming cars.
The Hilux is a pickup truck manufactured by Toyota. With the growing popularity of pickup trucks, the Hilux can be a good option for Toyota to bring in India. The Hilux is based on the Fortuner, which is the best selling full-size SUV in India. It can benefit a lot from the popularity of Fortuner. The Hilux is rugged in nature like other Toyota cars. Engine options will include 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engines. It will also come with 2WD and 4WD drive options. Toyota will price the Hilux competitively to compete with the Isuzu D-Max.
Toyota mid-size SUV
Globally, Toyota sells a mid-size SUV called Toyota Harrier. Toyota can bring this mid-size SUV that can help it expand its SUV line-up even further. The Harrier is based on Toyota’s New Global Architecture K platform. Design-wise it is quite stylish and sleek. Globally it comes with a 2.5-litre petrol engine with an all-wheel-drive option. If Toyota brings it to India it will have to change its name to differentiate it from the Tata Harrier. The pricing of this mid-size SUV is expected to be Rs 38 lakh (ex-showroom). If manufacturing is localized and something else is made – it would be cheaper.
Toyota has been testing the RAV4, CH-R and the Yaris hatchback too in India.
