Japanese car giant Toyota has a few SUVs in the pipeline for the Indian market and here, we have listed the ones that are expected to be launched soon.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor plans to launch several new automobiles in the Indian market, and the company has several SUVs in its pipeline. In India, utility vehicles have seen a lot of success in recent times, which is why car manufacturers are now planning to focus too much on SUVs and MPVs.

Here, we have listed four upcoming Toyota SUVs that are expected to launch in India within a year.

1. New Toyota Urban Cruiser

Maruti Suzuki is working on the next generation version of Vitara Brezza, which is expected to launch in India next month. Also, Toyota will launch a revised version of this compact Maruti SUV, as the new-gen Urban Cruiser.

There will be some differences in exterior and interior styling between the Maruti and Toyota versions of this upcoming SUV, but mechanically they will be identical. It is expected to be powered by a 1.5L NA petrol engine, and the transmission options will be a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic torque-converter (including the pedal shifter).
