2021 Toyota Raize 1.2L variants go on sale in Indonesia; Ativa's cheaper, non-turbo twin

PT Toyota Astra Motor, has officially marked the world debut of the 1.2-litre variants of the 2021 Toyota Raize. This launch is two months ahead of its original schedule, owing to hot demand (up to a 9-month waiting list!) of the model over in the archipelago.
Like its name suggests, what's new here is its engine: there's a 1.2-litre, naturally-aspirated three-cylinder under the hood now.
When the Raize was first launched in the archipelago alongside the Daihatsu Rocky back in April, it came with the 1.0-litre, turbocharged three-pot mill just like the JDM-spec cars of the same names and our Perodua Ativa.
Here's how both engines match-up, pound-for-pound:
2021 Toyota Raize Indonesian specs
1.0L, turbo 3-cyl
1.2-litre, NA 3-cyl
98 PS @ 6,000 rpm
88 PS @ 6,000 rpm
140 Nm @ 2,400 - 4,500 rpm
113 Nm @ 4,500 rpm
CVT or 5MT
CVT or 5MT
Luxury tax-exempt prices of the Raize 1.2L starts from IDR 202 million (manual, ~RM 58k) and tops out at IDR 215 million (CVT, ~RM 62k).
This variant of the Raize comes with LED headlights, 16-inch wheels, and a choice of only single-tone colours.
Moving inside, it still keeps its digital air-conditioning controls and power mode (for CVT only), but its 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is an inch smaller than the unit found in more expensive variants.
Of course, the most glaring omission of all is that the 1.2-litre variants lose out on the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) suite of ADAS, instead coming with just two front airbags, stability control, and hill start assist.
