It is set to compete against the likes of the MG ZS, Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Kia Stonic, Chery Tiggo 2, Geely Coolray, among others. 

So, what is the 2022 Toyota Raize offering? Let’s talk about it in detail. 


To start, the Raize comes in a compact form factor that’s sure to do well within the tight confines of city streets. Specifically, it has a length of 4,030mm, a width of 1,710mm, and a height of 1,605mm. Then again, it also has a ground clearance of 200mm, which can be useful in dealing with the occasional rough bumpy road.

Style-wise, the Raize assumes the current design language followed by contemporary Toyota crossover models. It is sharp-looking, and it comes standard with a pair of LED taillights, and a shark fin antenna. 

The top-spec Toyota Raize variant is fitted with LED headlamps, power-folding side mirrors, and a two-tone body paint. The Raize then rides on 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, depending on the variant.

The top-spec 1.0 Turbo CVT and the mid-spec G CVT version also provide a wealth of on-board amenities which include a push to start button, digital gauge cluster, automatic air-conditioning, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
