LEAKED! Full Specs, Prices Of The 2022 Toyota Raize

Toyota Motor Philippines’s opening salvo is a big one as it’s set to enter the sub-compact SUV segment with the 2022 Raize. As exports of left-hand drive models started in September, it’s only a matter of time for the Philippine market to get their hands on this much-awaited SUV. Check the official brochure, specs here.

Dealers have begun their marketing activities today (reservation books open on Monday, January 10), so we’re getting a clearer picture of what the Philippine spec Raize looks like.

For starters, Toyota has set a tentative launch date of February 4. Tentative is the operative word here because this may be pushed back given the upswing of COVID-19 cases, and the resulting community quarantines and restrictions.

Regardless, Toyota Motor Philippines is set to introduce no less than four variants of the Raize. The standard engine is a 1.2-liter normally-aspirated 3-cylinder mated to either a 5-speed manual or CVT. This version makes about 88 horsepower and 113 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line variant will get the turbocharged 1.0-liter 3-cylinder good for 98 horsepower and 140 Nm of torque mated to a CVT.

The range topper will be fully loaded. Outside, it will have a two-tone color scheme, LED headlights, sequential-type signal lights, power folding mirrors, and 17-inch alloy wheels. Lower end variants will be simpler with halogen headlights and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the turbocharged variant is impressively kitted with features such as a 7-inch TFT digital meter cluster, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, fabric/leather combination seats, and smart keyless entry with push-button start/stop. Lower variants will have simpler gauges and a relatively smaller 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Safety-wise, the Raize will get dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD, and stability control as standard equipment. Moving up the variant ladder adds 6 SRS airbags, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a rear camera, and back-up sensors.

As for the pricing, Toyota Motor Philippines is to start the Raize range below P 746,000 for the manual transmission variant (P 816,000 for the CVT). Meanwhile, the turbocharged variant will be priced at P 1,031,000, while the CVT-equipped mid-grade variant will be P 906,000. Take note that these prices are tentative and may change.

There are six colors, the availability of which depends on the variant: Silver Metallic 4 (1.2 E, 1.2 G), Gray Metallic (1.2 E, 1.2 G), Red 2 (1.2 G), Yellow SE/Black (1.0 Turbo), Turquoise Mica Metallic/Black (1.0 Turbo), White Pearl SE/Black (1.0 Turbo). As usual, the White Pearl commands a small premium, albeit here, it is just P 5,000).

If these specifications and pricing are correct, the Raize is expected to get a chunk of the sub-compact SUV segment probably at the expense of Toyota’s very own bread-and-butter model, the Vios.

  1. This could be the biggest improvement in overall product quality of Daihatsu-based Toyotas here in PH in a very long time, and the specs and prices are not bad at all.

    1. True, but not really a high bar to clear LMAO currently, we've got the underwhelming Wigo, the simply awful Rush, and the dinasaur Avanza. All poorly insulated, noisy, crappy riding with nasty interiors. Other Toyotas like the Vios, which isn't anything special, are much better by being actually decent.

      The Raize is a global model, so it meets global standards unlike the other models mentioned above. No contest the Raize will be much better, more refined, and better engineered with the DNGA platform. The upcoming all-new Avanza also appears to be a big improvememt for the brand, too.

    2. it's crap because it is basically a Daihatsu rebadged to a Toyota... Even if Toyota partially owns Daihatsu, R&D, Tech Engineers, QA will still be different from Toyota... So no to a rebadged vehicle. Stick with true Toyota Global Vehicles - Corolla, Rav4, Land Cruiser, Camry, Prado

    3. I'm also hoping the Raize won't disappoint like how the Rush did. The Perodua Ativa, as the Raize is called in Malaysia, is said to be easily the best among the Daihatsu-based products in Malaysia in terms of refinement, driving dynamics, and comfort.

  2. Wow! At those prices, I could see the Raize eventually surpass the Vios sales.

    1. Agreed. It's possible. I can imagine Toyota PH killing off the Yaris hatchback too.

    2. Surprised the Yaris lived this long. The 2013 model was quite a decent seller. IIRC, Yaris E at the time was a bit cheaper than the contemporary Vios E. However, the refresh model in 2018 got pummeled due to higher prices and the emergence of newer and more desirable subcompact crossovers.

    3. yeah they could position this as a replacement for the Yaris....I have no doubt this will sell like hotcakes...

  3. Higher SRP for the Vios due to being locally manufactured, which Toyota says results in higher prices due to high local costs. If Raize affects Vios sales, then Toyota can justify shutting down its local manufacturing just like Nissan, Honda and Isuzu

    1. Possible, but hopefully not for the sake of our industry. But, with Vios moving to a brand-new platform (reportedly DNGA-based) and the Innova also being replaced soon, if Toyota Motor PH decides to close their local manufacturing, it could happen real soon.

    2. Shouldn't local manufacturing lower costs, rather than increase them? Or is that because the government doesn't give enough tax breaks for local manufacturing?

    3. There's still hope... Don't worry Toyota won't close the Santa Rosa Factory for the sake of it's Employees and our Industry.

    4. "Don't worry Toyota won't close the Santa Rosa Factory for the sake of its employees and our industry."

      You sound so hopeful. Remember how Nissan and Honda closed shop here in our country. And if the Raize starts to eat away profits from Vios (they're both on the same price bracket, albeit Vios is slightly higher—and the market in our country have more preference for cars with higher ground clearance) then I don't really have high hopes for our local car manufacturing. The only thing these car manufacturers go back is to give them tax breaks.

      Not being a Debbie Downer here, just being realistic.

    5. Remember, no matter what your stand is, still the market wins. And these companies only chase the market preferences.

      We should act or make new laws encouraging local car production, make it for EV manufacturing and infrastructure (because I have to be brutally honest—it's too late now to save our local car industry here in our country, save for the only two Japanese car manufacturers in our country. They might close up shop too, if we don't encourage them and/or their competitiors to set up shop here once more. It's probably too late to be a hero now.)

    6. Our country is a low-profit one for these major manufacturers and their competitiors to consider local manufacturing now. Hyundai made Indonesia its regional hub, while Kia set up shop in Malaysia, and I wonder why not our country. We are seriously lagging behind way too long, I might not get surprised if Toyota close their Santa Rosa plant and consider themselves as importers (just like majority of car brands.)

    7. Problem with any manufacturing here in the Philippines is the high cost of operating here. We have the highest rates of Electricity in South East Asia. No wonder Nissan and Honda closed up shop..Also electricity here is not sustainable since DOE already announced we will have Red alerts this upcoming May June in our power grids..that also means lost income from these manufacturers

  4. Finally, japanese cars felt the pressure from chinese carbrands which offers so much features for less money.
    Toyotas specifically are underspecced overpriced cars.
    They even made the pricing at par with chinese cars..

  5. Empire Strikes Back after being outgunned by Chinese SubCompacts

  6. This Raize Subcompact Crossover could be the Best selling Toyota in 2022. It will outgun the Vios if the price is true according to the report.

  7. Sir Uly, when reports about the Raize surfaced last year, I was excited about the model. But now, when I realized how it will possibly affect local manufacturing, I began to fear for the jobs of Toyota employees in Sta. Rosa. My cousin lost his job when Honda closed its manufacturing facility, so I very much know the effects of this scenario.

    1. I think the only thing that will ensure that Toyota will not stop local car production here is they included Philippines to retrofit their manufacturing to accommodate Daihatsu-rebadged models (they're soon gonna use the new DNGA architecture, which the new Avanza, Raize and the future Rush will probably use and, soon, the Vios. I don't know about Innova's future though—they just can't sell Innovas forever unfortunately.) And that will require Toyota to put billions of pesos of investment again.

      But this switch to DNGA architecture is the solution for them to stay—since we have more preference to cars with high ground clearance that's why Pinoys love Innova and SUVS/Crossovers.

    2. Hopefully Toyota manufacturing in the Philippines will continue.
      Another hope: Please provide the Rush with a better engine (higher displacement or turbo) and a better suspension for a more comfortable ride. Hope the new Avanza will demonstrate the better suspension with its unibody construction. As for the Avanza's engine, well, it's the same..
      - Mark J.

  8. Sir Uly, is there a Cruise Control function for the 1.0 turbo?

  9. this sure like a winner for toyota. it might spur nissan to bring in the magnite abd hyundai, the casper, similar engine specs to the raize, with 1 lter 3 cylinder turbo. don't know much about the turbo, but the natural aspirated engines would be the choice of most buyers. many know from watching youtube videos, turbo engines have lots of issues, lag, has peak power but..., need premium gas, synthetic oil to cool that turbo, noisy than NA engines, needed to stay the engine on before shutting it down unlike NA where one can off the engine at once, consume more fuel if the turbo starts spooling not to mention, if the turbo breaks down, it would be uber expensive to replace or repair. remember with a turbo it would really get hot and what's the enemy of an engine, too much heat. another issue is the small engine with a turbo, 1 liter 3 cylinder, it remains to be seen for reliability and if the engine would last longer than without a turbo.

    1. Nah. All those diesel cars you see on the streets have turbos and they're as reliable as NA gasoline engines. Peak torque comes in earlier and stays there longer than in peaky gas engines with unachieavable redline peak HP numbers. What yiu should be worried about here is that rubberbanding CVT transmission. Even though it's from Aisin, these trannys are designed for cost-cutting and are disposable.

  10. I don't see anything special with this model. It should have higher quality & safety features given that it's supposed to be a global model unlike most of the local Toyota Turd World lineup. I hope the steering wheel is finally aligned with the instrument cluster binacle unlike in the Vios & Yaris.

  11. I hope their price will remain competitive and variants from other country should be same in the Philippines.
