Incidentally, the latter also managed to photograph etc from Daihatsu: as expected, for cross revived the name Rocky (in Tokyo novelty introduced simply as “new SUV” and Rocky called compact frame SUV with permanent all-wheel drive, which produced in the 90-ies of the last century).
So, for the Japanese crossover Toyota called Raize, and he is actually the twin of the new Daihatsu Rocky, the only difference in the design front. So, Raize new radiator grille, horizontal led strips daytime running lights instead of vertical Rocky other lights. Feed new Toyota the same as analog from Daihatsu, replace only the emblem.

Toyota Raize, rather the same setup.
