Toyota’s Renegade-Killer A Rebadged Suzuki Jimny?

By  | 

Last year saw Toyota teasing on several new vehicles and some of them are body-on-frame SUVs. The rugged setup on these SUVs are something that Toyota is interested in building as they desire to compete closely with Jeep.

Aside from the already confirmed TJ Cruiser, Toyota has also talked about building a compact off-roader. The vehicle will look to compete against the Jeep Renegade and we have to say that the potential offering looks promising.

If you are to check out the latest rumours surrounding Toyota, it is claimed that the compact off-road SUV will be a rebadged version of the Suzuki Jimny.

The Jimny is a popular compact SUV over in Asia and photos of the next-gen model shows a lot of Wrangler in its design but in a smaller package. The Jimny may be utilized to compete with the Jeep Renegade and it will generate greater revenue for both Toyota and Suzuki.

But of course, there is no telling how accurate the reports are hence you should take the above with a grain of salt until an official statement from Toyota gets released.
