The global partnership between Toyota and Suzuki has been mutually beneficial, with Toyota reaping significant advantages in the Indian market due to its larger market share and brand value. This collaboration has led to Toyota successfully selling rebadged models of Maruti in recent years.

The company has already seen success with the rebadged Glanza, originally Maruti Baleno, and is now set to launch a re-engineered version of the Fronx, a crossover based on Maruti’s premium hatchback. The upcoming model, expected to be named ‘Toyota Taisor’, is likely to enter the market in the first quarter of 2023.

Toyota Taisor: Expected Launch and Features

Toyota Taisor, anticipated to launch in early 2023, is set to mark Toyota’s re-entry into the sub-4 meter SUV/crossover segment following last year’s discontinuation of the rebadged Brezza, known as the Urban Cruiser. Notably, the upcoming model might be named ‘Urban Cruiser Taisor’ as indicated in the trademark application.

The Taisor is expected to feature similar equipment to the Fronx, including a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a semi-digital instrument console with a colored MID, a head-up display, a wireless phone charger, cruise control, and automatic climate control for enhanced comfort.

Toyota Taisor: Expected Engine Specifications

Like the Fronx, the upcoming Toyota Taisor is likely to offer two engine options: a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated Dual Jet unit and a 1.0-liter Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engine. The former is expected to generate 89 BHP and 113 Nm of peak torque when paired with a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox.

The turbocharged engine, on the other hand, produces 99 BHP and 147 Nm peak torque, likely paired exclusively with a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Toyota might also introduce a CNG option for its 1.2-liter unit.
