2020 Toyota new models – What’s coming soon

Eric/Feb 06, 2020 03:35 PM

Having just introduced the new 2020 Toyota Alpbard and Vellfire, UMW Toyota Motor isn’t slowing down just yet.

Following the debut of the updated luxury MPVs, we can expect UMWT to introduce the facelifted Hilux and Fortuner later this year.

This notion is supported by the fact that both updated models have been caught on Thai streets, indicating that Toyota is readying up these models for a likely 2020 debut.

Apart from these models, UMWT is also expected to introduce the all-new fifth-generation RAV4.

Sources within Toyota have indicated that Thailand could be in charge of assembling the RAV4, though it does not necessarily mean that units bound for the Malaysian market will come from Thailand as the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement (AFTA) require a minimum 60 percent of regional content to quality for import duty exemptions.

As such, it is possible for UMWT to import the RAV4 from Japan instead.

Last but certainly not the least, UMWT has also confirmed that the hot GR Yaris will be arriving here as well, joining the GR Supra as an enthusiast model.

Our friends over at CarSifu have revealed that the GR Yaris will be arriving here by 2021 in limited units, though we expect bookings to be opened in late-2020.

One can expect to pay close to RM 300k for the GR Yaris, or about RM 1,000 for every one of the 272 PS the 1.6-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder produces.
