Rebadging the RAV4

Recommended Posts

Took the wife’s Suzuki Swift in for service today. Was talking to the salesman who sold her the car and in conversation mentioned I had a hybrid RAV4.

Surprised when he said the new Suzuki Grand Vitara is going to be a rebadged RAV4 hybrid.

Googling appears to confirm this. https://uk.motor1.com/news/314562/toyota-suzuki-deepen-partnership/

Wonder how it will compare on trim and price?

Posted previously - see below. Probably be a bit more than just a re-badged Rav4 with cosmetic differences say at the front and rear. Similar to the Peugeot 3008 and Opel/Vauxhall Grandland X.

Presumably as Toyota will be building Suzuki's new engine for compact vehicles in Poland, this will feature in the next generation Yaris together with Toyoa's new 1.5 engine (which presumably replaces the 1.5 hybrid unit). Suppose the Suzuki engine will replace the 1.0 litre 1KE-FR currently used in the Aygo/Yaris.

Thanks.

Presumably it will be like the Aygo. Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108.
