Toyota has recently unveiled the Raize sub-compact SUV. This new offering, which is based on a low-cost derivative of Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) i.e. the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA), at the moment, remains exclusive to the Japanese market. Measuring under 4-meters in length, it comes across as a perfect offering for the Indian market. However, the Raize, in its current avatar, is unlikely to reach Indian shores as Toyota, under its partnership with Suzuki, is going to introduce a rebadged version of the Vitara Brezza in the aforementioned segment.
