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.

The Raize 1.0 GR Sport

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:

Indonesia's Raize range

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.
