Toyota Raize seeing good response in Nepal

It has already been more than two months since United Traders, the official distributor of Toyota vehicles in Nepal, launched a new passenger car–the Raize. The Raize is Toyota’s most affordable compact SUV, which sits below a lineup comprising the Rush and the Corolla Cross. 

The new SUV–powered by either a 1.0L turbo petrol or a 1.2L petrol engine–comes in four variants, at a starting price of Rs 66 lakh and it goes up to Rs 86 lakh.

Get to know more about the vehicle:


The Raize is 3995 mm long and 1695 mm wide. Despite having a shorter length than the Rush, the Raize is equally wide and will be standing on 17-inch alloy wheels as well. 

The Raize’s exterior features a trapezoid lower grille and angular bumper corners at the front. As for the lights, the vehicle comes with thin LED headlights with DRLs and indicators, and LED taillights. The interior features leather-and-fabric upholstered seats. The steering wheel features mounted controls, and near it sits a seven-inch TFT LCD cluster.


The Raize comes with two engine options: a 1.0L 1KR-VET turbo and a 1.2L WA-VEX DVVT.

The car powered by the 1.0L 1KR-VET turbo engine generates 72 kW of power at 6200 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 2400-4000 rpm.

And the one powered by the 1.2L WA-VEX DVVT generates a power of 64 kW at 6000 rpm and a torque of 113 Nm at 4500 rpm.

The engine comes paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
