The first launch from Toyota will be the Urban Cruiser HyRyder. It is the new mid-size SUV which was previously codenamed D22. The HyRyder will be sharing a lot of components with the Maruti Suzuki YFG. It will be offered in two 1.5-litre petrol engines.

The lower-spec engine gets a mild-hybrid technology and produces 105 PS. It gets a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Then there is the strong hybrid engine that produces 115 PS and is offered only with an e-CVT automatic transmission. Toyota will launch the Urban Cruiser HyRyder on 1st July.

Maruti Suzuki will be launching the new generation of the Brezza on June 30th. Toyota’s version is expected to launch soon once Maruti launches the Brezza. It will get the new 1.5-litre K12C engine that produces 103 Ps and 137 Nm. It will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. There would also be a mild-hybrid system on offer. Toyota will make some changes to the bumpers and also change the interior theme too.

Innova Hycross

 

Toyota is also working on a new generation of Innova. It will come with a hybrid system this time so Toyota is calling it Innova Hycross. The new Innova will be based on a monocoque chassis and will be front-wheel drive. It has been codenamed 560B. The new Innova will measure 4.7-metres in length. You might think that this means it will be smaller than the current Innova. However, because of the new platform, the space inside the cabin will be used more efficiently. The wheelbase will measure 2,850 mm and it will also be 170 kgs lighter than the current Innova. That is huge weight savings which should help in increasing the fuel economy. According to media reports, Toyota will use a 2.0-litre petrol engine which will come with hybrid technology.

Toyota Rumion

Toyota Rumion is essentially a rebadged version of the pre-facelift Ertiga which is currently being sold in South African markets. It looks exactly like the pre-facelift Ertiga. However, when Toyota launches the Rumion in the Indian market, it will probably be based on the facelifted version of the Ertiga which Maruti Suzuki launched recently.

Toyota Belta

The Belta is the rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz that Toyota is selling in Middle Eastern markets. The Belta is being manufactured in India and is being exported. Toyota did not make any changes to the sedan and is selling with the same exterior, interior, features and engine. It is expected that Toyota will bring the Belta to the Indian market in the future.
