The novelty has not yet acquired a marketable title, but it has an interesting shop name “local boy”, which is translated inton as “the local guy”.
This name could indicate that the Japanese company is preparing a practical and versatile car that will be able to show their best qualities and to “belong” in any conditions – in town and on the roads.
Under the assumptions, the production version of TJ Cruiser will be different, angular design with an abundance of straight lines, wider arches and side protective body kit of unpainted plastic, which is fixed around the perimeter of the body.
The SUV will be built on a compact platform GA-C, which underpins cars like the Toyota Prius, the C-HR and Corolla. The novelty will receive a length of 4410 mm, width 1815 mm and height 1600 mm. In the line of engines will be gasoline engine (specifications-kept-secret) and the hybrid powertrain, which will include petrol “turboservice” capacity of 2.0 liters and an electric motor.
The novelty is expected to debut in 2022, while the release date is not yet known. First of all, the new model will surely appear in the Indian market and then in China and Europe.
