The premium hatchback is the rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and it has been gaining decent numbers since its debut last year. Just a few weeks ago, Toyota introduced the Urban Cruiser compact SUV, which is a badge engineered version of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and it will be interesting to see its numbers in the coming months.
The Fortuner registered a total of 1,045 units last month as against 920 units during the same period in 2019 with YoY increase of 14 per cent. The Yaris C-segment sedan recorded 377 units as against 232 units in September 2019 with 63 per cent sales increase while 14 units of the Vellfire and 21 units of the Camry were registered last month.
Toyota is expected to launch the facelifted Innova Crysta next month with design updates mainly concentrating on changes to the front fascia. The updated version of the Fortuner is also expected in early 2021 with a host of exterior revisions and the existing diesel engine upgraded to develop 204 PS maximum power and 500 Nm of peak torque.
