Toyota has been enjoying rather strong success in the Indian market in recent times, thanks in part to its rebadged Maruti cars. Currently, Toyota has two such vehicles in its lineup – Glanza and Urban Cruiser – and more are slated to be added soon, including a Ciaz-based sedan and an Ertiga-based MPV. Apart from that, the Innova Crysta and Fortuner are also seeing a strong sales performance in our market.
Commenting on the sales, Mr. V. Wiseline Sigamani, Associate General Manager (AGM), Sales and Strategic Marketing, TKM said, “Demand in the personal mobility segment continues as we step into the festive months. Customer orders have been on a constant rise and we are witnessing a steady growth, ever since the second wave.”
“The Crysta and the Fortuner continue to dominate their respective segments, both garnering huge customer interests and orders. All other segments have also attracted good traction from customers and we are very excited to cater to all such personal mobility needs of our customer, this upcoming festive season,” he continued.Toyota is planning to update the Fortuner range in the Indian market soon, slated to happen on October 8. The biggest change will be the addition of a 4×4 option on the Legender variant, which currently is only available in RWD format. Other changes will include a space-saver steel spare wheel (instead of a full-size alloy spare wheel), dual-zone climate control, etc.
