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.
