At the end of the wait, Toyota has officially unveiled its Belta sedan. The manufacturers have now introduced the vehicle's Middle Eastern Spec.
The sedan will go on sale soon in the Middle East markets.
This is a rebranded version of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the only difference being the different logos on the vehicle. Other features such as mechanical, equipment, and features remain the same.
The cabin is complete with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, semi-digital instrument cluster (with color MID included), multi-function steering wheel, all-power windows, and cruise control.
In addition, the vehicle offers power-operated ORVMs (auto-folding), keyless entry and go, LED headlights (with integrated LED DRLs), and LED taillights.
The Toyota Belta is powered by a 1.5 liter, naturally aspirated, inline-four petrol engine. This motor can generate a maximum power of 105 bhp and a peak torque of 138 Nm. However, unlike its Maruti twin, the Toyota Middle Eastern is only available in the market with a four-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
In the Indian market, Toyota will also offer a five-speed manual gearbox, as cars with a manual transmission are very popular in India because of their affordable price.
Like the Glanza and Urban Cruiser (rebadged versions of the Baleno and Vitara Breza), the Indo-Spec Belta also avoids the base variant of the Ciaz, so it is expected to have a higher starting price than the Maruti model.
Toyota has already launched its Yaris sedan in India and Belta is expected to launch the brand in the country soon as a replacement.
Japanese manufacturers have not revealed the official launch timeline, but we expect the Belta sedan to hit the market in the first half of next year. The company is likely to introduce some changes in the exterior design in the India-spec version, including a new front grille and possibly redesigned bumpers.
Recently, the Toyota Maruti Ertiga MPV was launched in South Africa with a rebadged version of the Rumion. The new MPV is expected to go on sale in India soon. The MPV is expected to arrive in early 2022. Upon arrival, it will be positioned below the Innova Christie in Toyota's lineup in India.
But this will expand Toyota's model range, but it's more of a rebranded model and more of a lineup than the original Toyota models.
It's up to you whether you want to pick up a Maruti or a Maruti model with a Toyota badge. Currently, Toyota's only Innova Christa, Camry, Fortuner, and Welfare models are available in the Indian market.
Toyota is expected to launch the brand's small hatchback crossover models Corolla, Corolla Cross, Yaris Cross, and Aigo X in the Indian market.
