The Toyota Raize will be internationally debuted in the next few days. Before that, the interior images of the compact SUV have been leaked online, revealing some important details about this vehicle.
As we already know, the forthcoming Toyota Raize, which has been remoured under tthe name 'Toyota Rise' is going to be based on the Daihatsu Rocky and borrow the body panels, underpinnings and the motors from donor vehicle. Recently some leaked images reveal that the two SUVs will also share the interior design with numerous similar features. These include the dashboard layout which features a floating 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system located above the centre console, the digital driver’s display, the horizontally-located air vents and even the upholstery. The only thing which sets the two vehicles apart is the brand logo mounted on the driving wheel. The cargo space of the new Toyota Raize measures 369 litres.
The Toyota Raize is going to share many features with the Daihatsu Rocky on which it is based.
On the other hand, there are numerous differences between the two cars in terms of the exterior, especially in the front. The Raize gets a Toyota-typical stylish wide trapezoidal grille with mesh inserts. A Toyota logo is set high above the grille. On the two sides of the grille are the two angular fog lights enclosures. Actually, the front’s design reminds us of the Toyota RAV4. The compact SUV runs on 17-inch alloy wheels with a unique design. If you look at the side profile of the two vehicles, you can hardly realize any differences since the two cars share many components including the dual-tone paint scheme, the ‘floating roof’ look and the black body cladding. While no images of the rear are available, the Raize is likely to borrow the wraparound tail lamps which are linked by a thick chrome bar from the Daihatsu Rocky. Generally, in comparison with its donor vehicle, the Raize comes with a more upmarket and fashionable design.
The Raize's exterior will have quite a few differences from its donor vehicle.
As regards the powertrains, the Toyota Raize will receive its power from a 1.0-litre 3-cyl 12-valve turbocharged gasoline burner which can produce a maximum power of 98 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 140.2 Nm at 2,400 – 4,000 rpm. The transmission duties will be initially undertaken by a standard CVT with an optional 6-speed MT being introduced later.
