Toyota planning to invest in mid-size sedan segment to challenge Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and Honda City

The mid-size sedan car market has drawn tremendous attention with fantastic products such as Hyundai Verna, Maruti Ciaz and Honda City.  It is only recently, Maruti Suzuki launched Ciaz, Honda introduced the all new City and Hyundai has revamped the Verna to make it look ever so stylish and contemporary than before. Eyeing the high-intensity desirability and competition in this segment, Toyota has plans of investing in mid-size sedan segment.

The Indian unit of Toyota Motor Corp, Toyota Kirloskar Motor has introduced immense luxury in the sedan market, and is now keen to infuse extravagance in mid-size sedan segment. The newly introduced sedan car will be fitted between the highly luxurious Toyota Corolla Altis and Toyota Etios entry level sedan. For years the brand Toyota in India is associated with luxury and desirability and now we wonder how the upcoming mid-size sedan is going to be.

Now what is Toyota’s vision behind the introduction of mid-size sedan, the senior vice-president of the sales division of Toyota Kirloskar Motor, N Raja commented saying, ‘’we have submitted the feedback to the main Japanese unit, and they have noticed that there needs to be a car that fits between Etios and Corolla Altis and we are now working on connecting the gap.’’ Since Toyota Kirloskar Motor has now recognized that there is a gap between Etios and Corolla Altis that needs to be filled in order to gain wider consumer attraction, the firm is keen on launching the new mid-size sedan worldwide not just in India, but catering mainly to the entire breath of Asia Pacific markets.

The sale outcome of the Indian car industry is moving at a slow pace, and Toyota Kirloskar Motor is among the companies to be affected by the challenging market and Raja feels the most favorable method of tacking the grim situation of the passenger car segments is to introduce new launches in segments that are gaining wide consumer attention. He also said that his team will carefully analyze the market situation and working on introducing new launches when needed. N Raja also mentioned that the company is not too keen on investing in sub compact SUV segment to compete with best sellers like Renault Duster, Hyundai Creta and Ford EcoSport.

The mid-size sedan market is flourishing to a vast degree in India, and the top sellers are Volkswagen Vento, Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and Honda City. An important point to note is, this is not the first time Toyota has spoken of its plan to introduce a new sedan car, this point came across a couple of years ago. The entry level Etios sedan was launched in the year 2010 and it is a popular sight on Indian roads.

It will be interesting to observe how the upcoming mid sedan Toyota car is going to look, and one can expect nothing but something stunning, especially if it is going to be pitted against Honda City, Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna.

Indian Innova fans miss out on the grand new Toyota Innova Crysta in Delhi NCR

Toyota Kirloskar Motor India has finally launched the all new Toyota Innova Crysta MPV in the country ending the long wait of the Indian Innova fans. The second generation Innova Crysta launched on 2nd of May 2016 all set to write a new chapter in the long successful journey of India’s favorite Innova MPV. Toyota showrooms are witnessing more footprints of the potential buyers and admirers of the Innova MPV owing to the launch of the latest generation Crysta. However, all the Innova fans who are in the Delhi NCR region are missing out on all the excitement around the Indian launch of the Toyota Innova Crysta MPV owing to the extendedital.

The Supreme Court’s temporary ban on all diesel vehicles with engine displacement of 2 es to be in effect in the Delhi NCR, which means that the newly launched Toyota Innova Crysta will not be available for sale in the national capital region. Thus, the new dashing Innova Crysta MPV will remain out of reach all those who reside in and around Delhi.

Although it was rumored that the new Toyota Innova Crysta will launch in India in both petrol and diesel avatars this time around to dodge this diesel ban, Toyota has decided to bring in only the diesel version of the massively popular MPV. Moreover, while the Indian UV maker Mahindra has worked around the SC ban by offering downsized diesel engines on its Scorpio and XUV500 SUVs for Delhi, Toyota India seems to be unbendable with no such plans of downsizing its diesel engines for its offerings.

While strongly denouncing the apex court’s decision on the large capacity diesel vehicle’s Toyota Kirloskar Motor India’s vice-chairman, Mr. Shekar Viswanathan said that this the worst anno said that this the worst announcement of India and if the company doesn’t get a breakthrough its vehicles will continue to be banned despite being compliant of all the regulations in the country. This is certainly the most awful advertistainly the most awful advertisement of India. When enquired what Toyota India is planning to do if this ban continues, Viswanathan said that the company will miss the ope the company will miss the operation in such markets where the ban is in effect, as the company just can’t change the engine specifications as the buyers might not want it.

With this, Toyota India strongly voiced its opposition for the ban on the diesel vehicles with engine capacity of 2 liter and above, as other older vehicles which are not even compliant with the regulations are still moving and polluting the nation, while the major car makers are facing difficulties in the market because of this ban. Other auto giants like Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz have also strongly opposed this ban in Delhi NCR.

Toyota’s two segment rulers, namely the Innova premium MPV and the Fortuner premium SUV models both come with large capacity diesel engines, and have been out of the Delhi NCR market ever since the diesel car ban.
