Overview

Indus Motor Company by Toyota Japan is planning to launch a Corolla Crossover SUV in Pakistan. Earlier this year Toyota has launched this vehicle in the Thailand auto market. After the launch in Thailand, there was a rumor about the launch in Pakistan. 

The hit trend of SUVs and Crossovers at the international market also affects the Pakistan local market. The sale of SUVs shows a positive response meanwhile sedans sale response is negative. In the past the trend of sedans high just because of its styling and small design but now the trend of big vehicles and high ground riding is a crush. The market of SUVs shows the highest response as compared to the sedans. As we have seen how KIA Sportage and Hyundai Tucson gain the consumer even after the increase in its prices. We don’t have compared Corolla Cross to any crossover and SUVs because there is no idea about the price. Earlier company has launched the Yaris sedan with different variants but the variants of the Corolla Crossover are not confirmed.
