At this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, Daihatsu revealed a new compact SUV – reportedly called the Rocky – and we’re now getting our first glimpse of its Toyota sibling ahead of a planned November 5 debut in Japan. Called the Raize, the model is based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which is the basis of the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) used for the Daihatsu SUV.

The Raize gets its own front fascia to differentiate it from its Daihatsu sibling, and does have the look of a “baby RAV4.” Highlights include a lower-set intake that is trapezoidal in shape which is flanked by angular fog lamp enclosures, the latter featuring horizontal LED light strips, parking sensors and the fog lamps themselves. Higher up, you’ll find a small, body-coloured trim piece with the Toyota badge, and a pair of headlamps that are similar in shape to those on the Daihatsu model.

Based on the photos posted on Twitter by @okm24k408, Toyota will offer a number of styling packages, including Modellista and TRD options, for those who want an even more aggressive look for their Raize.

Viewed from the side, both the Toyota and Daihatsu models look almost identical, sharing the same two-tone paintjob, black body cladding and “floating roof” look. While there are no shots of the rear, the SUV is expected to carry over the Daihatsu’s wraparound taillights that are linked by a thick chrome bar. Similarly, the interior should be a carbon copy as well, albeit with small Toyota touches here and there.

Toyota has yet to reveal the dimensions of the Raize, but it shouldn’t be too far from the Daihatsu SUV, which measures 3,995 mm long, 1,695 mm tall, 1,620 mm wide, and with a 2,525 mm wheelbase.

Under the bonnet, the Raize is powered by a 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol engine that serves up 98 PS at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque from 2,400 to 4,000 rpm. The mill is mated to a CVT driving the front wheels, and will be offered with a six-speed manual and all-wheel drive later on.

It has been speculated that the upcoming Perodua D55L B-segment SUV – a smaller five-seat, B-segment cousin to the Aruz – will be based on the Daihatsu SUV. We previously sighted a Perodua development model going up Genting Highlands earlier this month, which appeared to be a test mule wearing a stretched Axia body.

Prior to that, the Malaysian carmaker showcased the X-Concept during the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, and if this indeed becomes Perodua’s B-segment SUV, it will most likely get a unique front end inspired by said concept.
