Toyota is readying three new SUV launches for India within the next 18 months. The brand will introduce an all-new three-row SUV based on the Hyryder sometime in 2025. Additionally, another SUV based on the Corolla Cross is also in the works. While these two models are still some time away, the Japanese brand will introduce a badge-engineered SUV based on the Fronx, likely to be called the Taisor, sometime this year.

  • Hyryder-based three-row SUV launch expected in 2025
  • Corolla Cross-based SUV launch also expected in 2025

Three row Hyryder to sit below the Corolla Cross SUV

The three-row Hyryder will also have a common production setup just like the standard Hyryder SUV that gets a badge-engineered twin, the Grand Vitara. As reported by us last year, Maruti has begun work on the three-row Grand Vitara (codename: Y17) that will be built at Maruti's new Karkhoda plant; the factory will start rolling out cars from 2025 onwards. The three-row Hyryder, which will be based on the three-row Grand Vitara, will be built and supplied by Maruti to Toyota. While the wheelbase is expected to remain the same, the three-row Hyryder will get a slightly longer rear overhang in order to accommodate the third row.

The two-row versions of the SUV are built by Toyota and supplied as the Grand Vitara to Maruti, however, it will be the opposite with the three-row version. This new SUV will sit alongside the Innova Hycross and will be aimed at customers looking at the Alcazar, XUV700 and the Safari

Toyota Corolla Cross expected by 2025

Toyota is readying another SUV for a 2025 launch, which will be built at its new facility. This new SUV will be based on the Corolla Cross SUV sold overseas, will sit on the popular TNGA-C platform shared with the Innova Hycross, and hence, be positioned above the three-row Hyryder.

Toyota India future line-up

The rebadged Fronx, Hyryder three-row, and the Corolla Cross-based SUV will add to Toyota’s already vast model portfolio for India, which includes the Glanza, Rumion, Innova Crysta, Innova Hycross, Fortuner and the Vellfire MPV. Apart from the aforementioned SUVs, Toyota will also bring its first born-EV to India – co-developed with Maruti – sometime in 2025. Read more on that here.
