Toyota Taisor name trademarked in India

The name could be used for Toyota's version of the Baleno Cross or a new mid-size MPV.

Toyota has filed a trademark application for the 'Taisor' name in India. The new name could be used for an upcoming model, the details of which are still murky.

It has been speculated that Toyota’s version of the upcoming Maruti Baleno Cross could be called Taisor.

The Baleno Cross (codenamed: YTB) is a compact crossover based on the hatchback. Spy images suggest that the car will get a redesigned top hat with a raised ride height. It has a large grille with a split headlamp setup up front and a coupe-like roof line.

The Baleno Cross is expected to be based on the Heartect platform. It could be offered with either a BoosterJet turbo-petrol or a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine paired with a choice of either a manual or automatic transmission.
