Toyota Belta (rebadged Ciaz) revealed in the Middle East

The Toyota Belta is a rebadged version of the Maruti Ciaz and will replace the Yaris in India.

Toyota has revealed a new mid-size sedan for the Middle Eastern markets. It's the Toyota Belta - a rebadged version of the Maruti Ciaz.

In terms of design, the Belta features the same front grille, bumper and headlights as the Ciaz. Similarly, the rear end is exactly the same except for the Toyota badge on the boot lid.

The Belta is powered by the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine that is offered in the Ciaz. It produces 103 BHP and 138 Nm and comes paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.

The Toyota Belta will be manufactured in India for left-hand drive markets including the Middle East.
