That's what bothers me it has several links to other places ,, will have to wait and see ,a potential alternative for  c-hr .. But not the best buy for the permit as the tax is only 20 (my permit is 36.5) 

 

Got a quotation for one though..

This is the direct competitor for the Vitara, but for me considering the looks, the Vitara seems to have a more conservative approach while the Raize having a sporty approach. Of course the latter might become more popular. Before deciding upon one, better to compare both those models and select the best one. Still it’s early to comment on reliability and fuel figures, but “EVERYONE WHO EXPECTS TO BUY A RAIZE SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER THE VITARA”.

True ,, Vitara is more time tested,, but in Sri Lanka the raize has that Toyota market xfactor ,, I guess that would be a major reason for it to outsell the Vitara (IF it does) ..

Oh hell No !

I saw this at the Tokyo Motorshow (see the Japanese Car News Thread for a long discussion). This is pretty much the size of a Vitz but taller and maybe like 10 or 15 cm longer. The interior is decent but does not have the refinement of a CHR nor the spunkiness of the new Yaris.  The seats too are not as huggy as the CHR.

But it is not bad. 

This is a Daihatsu....not a Toyota...a Daihatsu with a Toyota badge and bits and pieces from Toyota. So finally Sri Lankans are willing to embrace a Daihatsu after about 3 decades (albeit they will be doing so without knowing and be in denial forever)

Toyota calls this a passenger car with SUV LOOKS ! Not a mini SUV like our car salesmen keep harping about. This is NOT a competitor or an alternative to the CHR or the Vitara (even the Vitara is larger than this). This is much smaller. This is an alternative for a Vue or Kwid or a Redi-Go (i.e. a small crossover if a Hatchback does not cut it for you)

Most of our Sri Lankan car buyers are going to go for this because it is cheap and looks like a 4WD (so gives them added excitement and ego strokes). This will not be as comfy or as refined as the CHR or the Premio/Allion which some people are thinking of replacing with this :D

This is the replacement for the Terios/Rush. Ironically neither the Terios nor Rush did that well in SL (except for the few permit imports) but this will probably be a hit because it is cheap due to the low engine capacity and the taxes that it will attract.

Do not get me wrong...this is not a bad car....but it is not a replacement for a CH-R, Vitara, Premio/Allion. If you are okay with a Terios like car..then sure...it will be okay...but for 1000cc...also remember this is the same 1L 1KR-VET engine from the Thor/Tank. It is an updated engine that came in the 1L Vitz (1KR-FE). The 1KR-FE was not very good but seems like the 1KR-VET has been much better so far.

Also, the 1KR is a Daihatsu engine...

Oh no...why am I getting pictures of riced out Raizes going over a muddy puddle and a videos of it surfacing online saying 'Raize Offroad club of Srilanka' or 'Raize club meetup' with a cringey music/filter edit over it?

Rice = raize?

You forgot the Passo

On the other hand, Vivas, Avanzas and Wigo/Axia are also essentially Daihatsus...

On a different note, Daihatsus, even with Toyota badge, don't have a good record for reliability (compared to actual Toyotas like Vitz and Vios)... so I would expect Raize to have some reliability issues...

But for the average Sri Lankan, it's the badge that matters.

I guess Raize is a direct competitor for the Hyundai Venue. Despite the similar tax bracket Vitara is a pricier, larger Crossover not in the same group as the Raize.

Yes ! Vitara is pricier because it is much more car ! The Vitara used to be a competitor for the RAV4 in the past but now it has been re-positioned as a competitor for the C-HR.

Oh right...the Daihatsu Boned...

Well..this is their very first car that is based on their DNGA platform...which is pretty much a derivative of Toyota's TNGA platform. So lets hope some of the niggles have been resolved.

A typical japanese play on English words that is just ridiculous...

Raize comes from the the car being Raised and the active lifestyle it gives you leaves you surprised  and amazed (or some balony like that)...Thus..Raized....
