    We’ll find that out as we check out the four available variants of the Philippine-spec Toyota Raize.

    The all-new Toyota Raize

    Raize 1.2 E MT

    The Toyota Raize 1.2 E MT is the base variant of the subcompact crossover. That said, customers can expect to get base-level exterior features from it such as a monotone exterior finish, halogen headlamps and fog lamps, standard turn signals, as well as power-adjust side mirrors.

    Likewise, the base model Toyota Raize sings the same tune when it comes to its interior appointments. It comes with fabric seats, a urethane steering wheel, a basic instrument cluster, and an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

    Power comes from a 1.2-liter gasoline engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.

    While some may say that the Toyota Raize 1.2 E MT does offer the bare minimum when it comes to features, most will agree that what it has to offer is just enough to make it a decent family car and a daily driver.

    Raize 1.2 E CVT

    The Toyota Raize 1.2 E CVT variant packs the same set of features as the abovementioned manual gearbox-equipped model.

    In addition to the aforementioned features, it does come with standard safety amenities like airbags and seatbelts, an anti-lock brake system, vehicle stability control, hill start assist control, as well as clearance and rear sensors.

    The Toyota Raize 1.2 E CVT shares the same powerplant as its manual transmission-fitted brother. Nevertheless, it uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which makes driving easier for many car owners.

    Raize 1.2 G CVT

    Taking the nameplate’s exterior and interior features a notch higher is the Toyota Raize 1.2 G CVT.

    While it does retain the monotone exterior finish, it flaunts split-type LED headlamps (with line guides), LED sequential turn signals, LED rear combination lamps, as well as power-adjust and power-folding side mirrors.

    Inside, it does offer a more upmarket suite of amenities like a digital seven-inch instrument cluster, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a tonneau cover, a push-start ignition system, and automatic air conditioning.

    Toyota also added a rear camera for this variant of the Raize crossover.

    The Toyota Raize 1.2 G CVT shares the same powertrain setup as the Raize 1.2 E CVT model. All 1.2-liter engine-equipped variants make as much as 86 horsepower and 113 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque.

    Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT

    The Toyota Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT is the range-topping variant of the family. On that note, it comes with all the bells and whistles that Toyota is able to pack in this subcompact crossover.

    Owners are treated to a two-tone finish on top of the exterior features found on the Toyota Raize 1.2 G CVT grade. Also, it rides on variant-exclusive 17-inch wheels.

    Inside, those driving the Toyota Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT get seats swathed in fabric and leather material, a leather steering wheel with paddle shifters, a digital instrument cluster, and a larger nine-inch infotainment system.

    Toyota also bolstered the safety features of the Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT with a blind spot monitoring system, a rear cross-traffic alert system, a more robust suite of airbags, a rear camera, and two more sensors at the front on top of the two it has on the rear.

    The powertrain setup of the Toyota Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT is why you’d want to spend more on the nameplate. That’s because it packs a turbocharged gasoline mill mated to a CVT. Compared to the 1.2-liter engine-outfitted models, the top-of-the-line variant produces more power at 96 horses and more power at 140Nm of pulling power.

    Pricing

    Raize 1.2 E MT – P751,000
    Raize 1.2 E CVT – P831,000
    Raize 1.2 G CVT – P926,000
    Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT – P1.051 million

    Verdict

    Should money be of no concern, the best choice would be to go with the range-topping Toyota Raize 1.0 Turbo CVT variant since it has a better powertrain setup and offers better exterior and interior features overall.

    Nevertheless, going for the base manual variant would still be a good choice, especially for car owners who want to drive and not be driven. Driving stick allows the person sitting behind the wheel to better control — and be one — with the vehicle.
