Cause Toyota will offer you a 7 year warranty on it which Maruti won't leading to better resale and peace of mind. Also the brand value of Toyota is much better than that of Suzuki globally. Suzuki has either ceased sales in many parts of the globe or has filed for bankruptcy.

PS: Toyota is respected for its bullet proof reliability, hope they realise that Maruti is known for their inferior built quality and it doesn't end up tarnishing their record .

Maruti Suzuki may completely move Brezza production to Toyota’s Bengaluru plant.

Quote:
If the company goes ahead, this will be the first of its kind move as Maruti has not outsourced the production outside the Suzuki fold till now.
Toyota will get access to Brezza and will be allowed to sell the SUV under a different brand name starting 2022.

Toyota may have better fame globally, but talking about India, if both the manufacturers sell the same car except the brand name, why will I go to Toyota, when I am getting the same car from Nexa at a lower price (considering Toyota sells it at a higher price).
Moreover, in India Maruti has got workshop at the remotest village. Even local garage mechanic dares to work on a Maruti and not on a Toyota.

I feel rather than sharing models and confusing buyers, these brands should have swapped the models.

Suzuki, Toyota to extend partnership to sales, service learning and could perhaps integrate Toyota’s way of selling and servicing cars.

Hinted at the dealers summit in Macau, earlier this month it was hinted to expand co-operation between the two companies.

Quote:
One key takeaway from the summit was that Maruti will take help from Toyota in areas beyond technology also. Toyota’s sales training module, its processes will be adapted by Maruti. Toyota does not have the best priced vehicle in the world but it has the best system in the world
Quote:
Under Toyota’s way of working things, if a service center promises delivery of the car within one hour then it is the same in any country and the car will be delivered within one hour after servicing. But that’s not necessarily the case at Maruti. That is why it is important to learn Toyota’s processes

Considering the utilisation factor of man power at Toyota from last couple of years, this is a good initiative from Maruti. This may save the lives of labors from an uncertain future.

Post April 2020, Toyota Altis will not be available for sale in India.

With that the badge- engineered program of Altis for Suzuki stands cancelled. With the segment showing a down slide the business case seem not viable.

Toyota's badge engineering efforts post Baleno - Glanza to continue with Ciaz , Ertiga and Vitara Brezza.

Post that the MUV being developed will differentiate from Toyota and Maruti in looks and features.

Quote:
First Toyota-Maruti model that won’t be just a rebadged model might be the new C-segment MPV.

The MPV will be launched by Toyota first, possibly in 2022.

Toyota and Maruti’s version of the upcoming MPV will get different features
- It will be launched as a Toyota first and later as a Maruti Suzuki.

-The MPV will be positioned above the Ertiga in Maruti’s portfolio and below the Innova Crysta in Toyota’s.

I hope rather than just badge engineering the suzuki cars, toyota differentiate it based on safety and build quality (or atleast use the export variant). So that people who are willing to shell out extra for safety get an option.

Hi,

Reference post no 143 by Volkman and quoting from link posted by him

"Toyota will be adding a significantly redesigned and re-engineered version of Vitara Brezza and a Toyota variant of Wagon R EV in 2020, a Ciaz sibling will come in 2021-2022, followed by an offspring of Ertiga before a jointly developed C MPV/SUV is launched in 2023, several people in the know told ET"

Glanza is a stepping stone for Toyota and they will not compromise on Toyota values at all. I remember reading in TOI Pune edition (when both CEO's announced collaboration) that Toyota had started evaluation of MSIL vendors to confirm where they stood with respect to Toyota Quality.

Regards
Nikhil

"Significantly redesigned and re-engineered" Brezza will mostly be the next-gen Brezza itself that could look a bit different for Maruti.

Secondly, the next-gen Ciaz is the one that would be shared with Toyota and not this.

Lets see how this pans out, I am pretty sure this will make many Maruti dealers, especially Nexa ones upset big big time.

Default Re: Toyota & Suzuki to supply cars to each other in India

Toyota is planning to source more models from Suzuki.

- The vehicles sourced from Maruti Suzuki will be below Rs 10-lakh category and include hatchbacks and sedans.

- Toyota will invest Rs 1,500-2,000 crore in either re-badging or converting those vehicles into hybrid version.

-The vehicles will be used by Toyota for the domestic as well as the export markets

-Hybrid versions will also be shared with Maruti Suzuki.

- Toyota will provide Suzuki its hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technologies in India through local procurement of HEV systems, engines and batteries.

- Maruti Suzuki — will be relying on Toyota for the large-sized vehicles (MPVs and SUVs)

So as per the latest news Toyota and Suzuki are readying to get into a much deeper and a long term alliance at a global level.
I believe with the way the Global Auto makers are facing disruptions on multiple fronts i.e. car ownership (Uber, Ola etc) Or Electric Car Or Autonomous Cars its best that the giants combine forces to come out stronger and in front. Interesting times ahead!

Suzuki's Baleno helps Toyota net more first-time customers as the Glanza.

With the Glanza, the company says, is doing better than expected.

More Suzuki models waiting to be badge-engineered are the Vitara Brezza SUV, Ertiga MPV and the Ciaz sedan.

MD of Toyota Kirloskar:

Quote:
These are giving new platforms for us to engage with customers in two ways -- new customers, and existing additional customers,". Toyota Kirloskar Motor wants to gain customers for life, and the cross-badging strategy will be leveraged to gain more of them at a stage earlier than they enter into the Toyota fold in other segments now
