Toyota Raize now available with entry-level 1.2L NA engine in Indonesia – 5MT and CVT, from RM58k


The Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize twins were launched in Indonesia on April 30. Like in Malaysia, the sister cars to our Perodua Ativa comes with a 1.0 litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine, but Indonesia also gets an entry-level naturally aspirated engine for the compact SUV.

Initially, it was only the 1.0T that was available, but the 1.2 litre three-cylinder NA engine now joins the line-up, slightly earlier than the original July 2021 timeframe given by Toyota Astra Motor, detikoto reports.

The new WA-VE 1.2L with DOHC and Dual VVT-i makes 88 PS at 6,000 rpm and 113 Nm at 4,500 rpm – that’s 10 PS and 27 Nm less than the 1.0T, but the turbo engine produces its 140 Nm max torque from 2,400 to 4,000 rpm for an acceleration advantage. A CVT automatic gearbox is available alongside a five-speed manual; the latter is exclusive to the Indonesian market.

As for pricing, the Raize 1.2L with a manual would start at Rp 210 juta (RM60,476) with the 50% luxury tax break (PPnBM) that’s in place to spur the automotive industry. For registrations that are in time to take advantage of the 100% PPnBM, it’s an estimated Rp 202 juta (RM58,119) for the MT and Rp 215 juta (RM61,859) for the 1.2 G CVT. The latter is just a few million rupiah cheaper than the base 1.0T, so the 1.2L is more of an option for those who don’t want a turbo, as opposed to massive savings.
