Looks lovely from the front. Has anyone seen any reliable images of the Maruti offering? I mean the unveil is less than a month away and all I have seen so far are photoshopped images by amateurs pretending to be auto journos

Not authentic. That YouTube channel is filled with edited images/videos. If you ask me, I would say this is photoshopped from a ZS EV facelift. Just by looking at the air dam/grill.

One look at the placement of wing mirrors and you know its fake. No two ways about it.

Both hybrid systems will be based on the 1.5-litre K15C petrol engine from Maruti Suzuki, with lower variants getting the mild-hybrid versions, while higher versions get the full-hybrid set-up.

Official Press Release:

The SUV will boast a 1.5-litre petrol engine with both mild-hybrid and segment-first strong-hybrid technology. The former will be developed by Suzuki while the latter will be taken care of by Toyota. Plus, the mild-hybrid unit will be available with an optional all-wheel drivetrain while front-wheel drive will be standard.

Which engine for the strong Hybrid remains to be seen.

Marutiís version is expected to commence a month after the Toyota model has been rolled out.

As per the link in this post, both models will be built by Toyota technicians by Toyota in a Toyota plant. Does this translate into any real benefits for the end customer in terms of consistency and quality of build when compared to say a Maruti built vehicle? Not meant as a insult to Maruti build process, but this is a genuine question. Did their previous joint offering Baleno/Urban Cruiser have a similar arrangement?

Seriously amused at the AWD option for the K15 mild hybrid.

But, why is there a camouflaged Gloster in this thread?

AWD is offered with Toyota strong hybrids internationally. The news scoops must have mixed things up, or maybe the K15 C will be tuned for performance in the AWD version.*

Brezza 2022 has same engine K15C with mild hybrid technology. I am sure Suzuki will ensure different engine tuning for the upcoming higher segment car. But from customers point of view, same engine/output numbers as Brezza will be hard oil to swallow.

Logical choice will then be to opt for strong hybrid variant. Hoping against hope here that Toyota and Suzuki keep the strong hybrid variant cost below 20-21 lacs OTR.

Maruti and Toyota continues with the tradition of offering the least power output of all cars in the segment and that too, when they are the last to enter the segment. Hope they price it competitively and offer a 5* crash safety rating, which will be a USP over the 'unsafe' Hyundai/Kia twins.
Why a strong-hybrid offers only 116 PS when the 1.5L Honda city offered 118 PS 15 years back?

And AWD on a 100 odd PS car, really?

Got a call from dealer that they have unofficially started taking booking with a cheque of Rs 50,000. On asking how they will put the booking, I was told that they will maintain the excel and will put the bookings in system in same order they get booking in excel file and encash cheque only then. I again asked what if the official booking amount is Rs 11000/Rs 15000 then he said will return the Rs 50,000 cheque and take fresh cheque of new amount. I told him to call me once they can enter into system and have confirmation of booking amount.

Looks cool, it’s high time the Korean Duos dominance is challenged by someone!

An AWD System if it’s true is coming, will be a masterstroke in this segment, where various rivals are basically raised Hatchbacks being called SUVs.

Please, pretty please, Toyota don’t goof up the pricing, you won’t get another Golden Opportunity like this ever again in the Indian Market!!

Looks cool! Should be a hit if Toyota price this correctly and the mild hybrid version has some decent power output.

The strong hybrid would be engaging to drive for sure but the mild hybrid would be underwhelming if it produces the same power as the Brezza/UC.
