This is the Toyota Raize, a compact SUV which is scheduled for a reveal before the end of the year. However, thanks to some leaks, we can get a closer look.
First reported by Autocar India, the Toyota Raize shares mechanical and visual componentry with the Daihatsu Rocky compact SUV, which was revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show recently.
The Raize looks smart and upmarket, so kudos to the designers there. We can see LED daytime running lights and a bold front end, not too dissimilar to that of other Toyota compact SUVs.
Autocar India reported the Raize rides on 17-inch wheels and will boast a long list of accessories, as well as a TRD package. In terms of dimensions, the Daihatsu Rock is almost 4 metres long, 1.7 m high and 1.6 m wide, with a wheelbase of 2.5 m and we expect the TNGA platform or a variation of such to underpin the vehicle.
In terms of engine, the Toyota Raize SUV will feature a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder 12-valve turbo engine with 73 kW and 140 Nm, mated to a CVT, with the option of a 6-speed manual transmission to come later.
We'll update this story as we get more info.
