Toyota will have the world premiere of its new small SUV based on the Yaris at the Geneva motor show next month. Slated to be positioned below the C-HR in international markets, the new Toyota small SUV (internally known as B-SUV) is yet to receive a market name. Toyota will build this new SUV at its Onnaing plant in France, alongside the Yaris.

An official teaser released confirms that the small SUV will come with a hybrid powertrain and all-wheel-drive as well.  To be based on the modular TNGA-B architecture, the model will share powertrains with the recently unveiled Yaris; this includes a1.0-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre petrol option, along with hybrid setups too.

The new Toyota small SUV will first hit the European markets, followed by a few ASEAN markets. Key rivals will be the Nissan Juke and the Renault Captur. 

For India, Toyota has plans to introduce the BS6-compliant Fortuner SUV soon, and is also working on two new vehicle launches with its partner Suzuki for next year.
