First glimpse of Toyota Century SUV surfaced, know when it will be launched in India

Toyota has released the first teaser of its upcoming Century SUV and has also announced that it will make its global debut on September 6, 2023. The development of the Toyota Century SUV was confirmed globally by the Japanese manufacturer a few months ago. Come, let's know about it.

Unlike the Century sedan that will be offered only in the Japanese market, the Toyota Century SUV will be a global model. It will be used to expand Toyota's Century range of luxury models in markets outside Japan, as the company did with the Crown brand – it is now available in several markets including North America.

The upcoming Toyota Century SUV will be based on a monocoque chassis that will be shared with the Toyota Grand Highlander SUV. This makes it more suitable for cities than off-road terrains. The Century SUV is expected to be bigger in terms of space and comfort, providing an immersive experience for the buyers. The Century SUV will be around 5.2 meters long and may also feature a three-row seating option.

Currently, the Century sedan comes with a V12 petrol engine, but this will not be the case with the Century SUV. Toyota will equip the Century SUV with a petrol-hybrid powertrain. This could be the same engine that is seen on the Grand Highlander SUV. These include a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine coupled with two electric motors for a combined power of 243hp and a 2.4-litre, turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol engine coupled with an electric motor for a total of 362hp.

Toyota and Lexus are bringing their global models to India within weeks of their international debut. Examples include the Vellfire and the upcoming Lexus LM MPV.
