The latest reports indicate that the Toyota-Suzuki’s Creta rival SUV has already entered into the trial production phase at the plant, we can expect the car to officially debut in June or July while the launch could occur during the peak festive season of 2022.

The new SUV will support the made-in-India version of Toyota’s TNGAB platform, the majority of the components will be supplied through Maruti Suzuki’s existing vendors. Some crucial systems will be provided by Toyota regulators, while there is no official word on the upcoming rival of Creta, it is likely to arrive with two petrol engines and a hybrid drive unit.
