Fronx Based Toyota SUV Coupe To Launch This Year
Toyota has lately introduced the Innova Hycross MPV in the Indian market. The business also aims to reintroduce the Innova Crysta with a diesel engine and a 5-speed manual transmission. In addition, Toyota will debut two additional models in the nation in 2023 based on existing Maruti Suzuki cars.
Toyota will release a new SUV Coupe based on the newly debuted Maruti Suzuki Fronx. The Toyota version is anticipated to have many stylistic tweaks that will distinguish it from the Fronx. The SUV Coupe is expected to borrow styling ideas from the Yaris Cross, which has been sighted testing on Indian roads.
The front design may be shared with the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, while the rear design will most likely be shared with the Yaris Cross. It will be available with two engines: a 1.0L 3-cylinder Boosterjet turbo petrol engine and a 1.2L Dualjet petrol engine. Suzuki’s mild hybrid technology will help both powertrains. The former generates 100bhp and 147.6Nm of torque, while the dualjet delivers 90bhp and 113Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission will be standard, as will a 6-speed torque converter with a 1.0L engine and an AMT with a 1.2L engine.
Toyota will also introduce a new three-row MPV based on the Ertiga. For those who are unaware, the business is already selling the rebadged Ertiga as the Rumion in South Africa. The India-spec vehicle, on the other hand, is expected to get considerable design alterations as well as an updated cabin. The corporation is expected to make design alterations in the form of a completely new front end and a reworked back end. The stylistic features from the Innova Hycross might be included in the design.
