Five models are scheduled to hit the Indian market over the next two years, and we’ve covered them all in our forthcoming Toyota automobiles list.
TKM’s recent successes with the Innova Hycross and Urban Cruiser Hyryder have boosted the company’s reputation. The Japanese automaker is planning to enhance its sales in India over the next two years by introducing as many as five new models. The following is an explanation of each:
1. Toyota SUV Coupe:
The Maruti Suzuki Fronx will be released next month, and the forthcoming Toyota SUV coupe will be based on that vehicle. Similar to the Fronx, the five-seater will likely take styling inspiration from the Yaris Cross and ride on the Heartect platform while using the same 1.0L turbo petrol and 1.2L NA petrol engines.
2. Toyota Ertiga Based MPV:
In other countries, like South Africa, Toyota’s Ertiga-based Rumion is already on sale. The version destined for India, however, will be more than just a rebranded version. The MPV will likely take styling cues from the Toyota Innova Hycross and will be powered by a 1.5L mild-hybrid four-cylinder petrol engine mated to either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
3. 7-Seater Toyota Corolla Cross:
Toyota may bring a three-row variant of the global Corolla Cross to India. The Innova Stretch will be built on the same TNGA-C platform as the Innova Hycross, but it will have a larger wheelbase and additional interior space. A 2.0-liter naturally aspirated (NA) gasoline engine and a 2.0-liter powerful hybrid gasoline engine are both viable options, and they might be shared with the Hycross.
4. Next-Gen Toyota Fortuner:
For many years, the Fortuner has been one of the best-selling vehicles in India. The demand for the full-size seven-seater continues to rise, even as the price of the vehicle rises on a regular basis. The next-gen Fortuner will have a redesigned ladder frame chassis and represent a step up in luxury from the current model. An evolutionary design philosophy will be used for the exterior, while a more luxurious aesthetic will be implemented for the inside. Diesel hybrid propulsion is a possibility, and a release as soon as the end of 2019 is possible.
5. Toyota Electric SUV:
It’s likely that the 2025 Toyota electric SUV will take styling inspiration from the worldwide bZ4X. It will be a Maruti Suzuki offspring built on a specialised skateboard platform developed from the widely-used 40PL language. With a claimed range of over 500 kilometres, it might be available with either a single or a pair of electric motors.
