Toyota To Launch New Car On April 3 – Likely To Be Fronx-Based Taisor | V3Cars

Toyota have confirmed the launch of a new car on April 3. However, they haven’t revealed the name or any other details of their upcoming new car. Reports suggest that the new Toyota vehicle could be the Taisor, a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Fronx. If so, the Taisor will become the 5th shared model between Toyota and Maruti Suzuki after the Glanza/Baleno, Urban Cruiser Hyryder/Grand Vitara, Rumion/Ertiga, and the Innova Hycross/Invicto.

Toyota Taisor Exterior And Interior Design And Features

Back in August 2023, Toyota trademarked the name “Urban Cruiser Taisor” in India. Reports suggested Toyota could use this name for a crossover SUV based on the Maruti Suzuki Fronx, which, like the Baleno, is sold through Maruti’s premium Nexa chain of dealerships. While Toyota are yet to reveal images or even teasers of the Taisor, we expect it to feature subtle cosmetic differences inside out to help differentiate it from the Fronx.

We expect the Toyota Taisor to offer features similar to the Fronx, including:

  • Cruise control 
  • 360-degree surround view monitor
  • Head-up display
  • 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels
  • Automatic LED headlamps with DRLs,
  • 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • 6-speaker sound system
  • Wireless charger
  • Coloured multi-info display
  • Rear AC vents
  • Rear parking camera

2024 Toyota Taisor – Expected Powertrain Specs

The Taisor will be offered with the same powertrain options as the Fronx. Maruti’s B2-segment crossover SUV is offered with 3 engine and 2 transmission options. They include the 1.0-litre turbo petrol that is offered with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter, the 1.2-litre normal petrol engine that comes with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT, and a 1.2-litre CNG bi-fuel option with a 5-speed manual.

Here’s a look at the expected powertrain specifications of the upcoming Toyota Taisor based on the specifications of the Maruti Nexa Fronx: 




1.0L turbo petrol

1.2L normal petrol

1.2L CNG










5-speed MT
6-speed AT

5-speed MT
5-speed AMT

2024 Toyota Taisor Expected Prices

We expect the Taisor 1.2L petrol-manual variants to cost between Rs. 7.60 lakh and Rs. 9.0 lakh. The AMT variants of the Taisor could cost Rs. 9.0 lakh and Rs. 9.50 lakh (ex-showroom). The Taisor turbo petrol manual range could start from Rs. 10.0 lakh and stretch up to Rs. 12.0 lakh, while the Taisor turbo petrol automatic cost between Rs. 12.50 lakh and Rs. 13.50 lakh. Finally, the Taisor E and S CNG variants could carry an ex-showroom price tag of Rs. 8.55 lakh and Rs. 9.45 lakh, respectively.

With these prices, the Taisor will have at least one turbo petrol variant (barely) under Rs. 10.0 lakh. Moreover, it’ll have the 2 petrol-AMT and CNG-manual variants well under Rs. 10.0 lakh (ex-showroom) price. The turbo petrol with the manual and automatic transmission will have no trouble maintaining its premium appeal as it’ll mostly hover well over the Rs. 10.0 lakh limit.

When launched, the Taisor will mark Toyota’s return to the competitive B2-SUV segment. The Taisor will rival not only its Maruti cousin, the Fronx, but also take on other best-selling SUVs like the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Tata Nexon, and the Mahindra XUV300.
