Delhi : Toyota plans to debut some interesting new vehicles that will shake up the Indian automobile industry. Toyota is doing all possible to satisfy the various needs of Indian automobile consumers and enthusiasts, from small SUVs to full-size SUVs. The well-known Japanese automaker has several gems planned for our market. Toyota has something unique in store whether you're looking at a little SUV, a luxurious minivan, or a tough full-size SUV.

Here's a sneak preview of what's to come:

Urban Cruiser Taisor

With a rebadged Maruti Suzuki Fronx, Toyota intends to re-enter the sub-4-meter SUV market segment in the near future. According to a trademark application the manufacturer filed, the Toyota-badged car will most likely be called the "Urban Cruiser Taisor."

Expect a familiar dashboard, little exterior modifications, and minor upholstery adjustments. A 1.0L turbo-petrol or a 1.2L gasoline engine, both with manual and automatic transmission choices, may be found under the hood of the vehicle.

Next-Gen Toyota Fortuner

The venerable Toyota Fortuner is about to undergo a generational transition, and the new model is eagerly anticipated. In 2024, the third-generation Fortuner is anticipated to be unveiled to the world, and it will then quickly make its way to India.

The 48V mild-hybrid system that was added to the 2.8L diesel engine, which increases fuel efficiency by about 10%, is the big news. This electrified powertrain will change the game when harsher emission regulations are in effect.

Toyota Corolla Cross 7-seater

With a twist, Toyota will launch the Corolla Cross SUV in India. The Indian version will be a 3-row/7-seater SUV, unlike the worldwide version. Toyota will increase the wheelbase, which is now 2,640 mm, to accomplish this. To support this metamorphosis, the TNGA-C platform will undergo changes, likely with unique front and back designs from the 5-seater model.

This initiative attempts to challenge vehicles like the Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus, and Tata Safari by introducing a new 7-seater SUV class below the Fortuner.  A 2.0-liter gasoline engine and a 2.0-liter strong hybrid gasoline engine are expected to be offered as options, although a diesel option is still unlikely.
