Toyota might launch the Maruti Fronx based Taisor SUV very soon
Speaking about the common factors, the Toyota Taisor will have the same body dimensions as the Maruti Fronx.
Toyota has joined hands with Maruti since the last couple of years in order to launch rebadged vehicles. Maruti has also benefitted from the partnership with Toyota as the company launched the Grand Vitara last year. The Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara is the rebadged version of Toyota Hyryder. Speaking about rebadging, Toyota will launch a compact SUV that is based on the Maruti Suzuki Fronx.

However, when it comes to the exterior, the Toyota Taisor will have its own distinguished design (just like the Glanza). The price of the compact SUV is expected to start from Rs 7.5 lakh and might go as high as Rs 10 lakh. With the launch of the Toyota Fronx, the company might expect a hike in the volume of sales.
