    But first, let’s see what the Toyota Raize has to offer.

    The all-new Toyota Raize

    From the outside, the new kid on the block impresses with its cute yet aggressive look. At the fore are either halogen or LED headlamps with daytime running lights (DRL), front turn signal lamps, and front fog lamps.

    Inside, the Toyota Raize packs decent comfort amenities like seats that are covered in either fabric or fabric with synthetic leather trims, a digital or an Optitron meter cluster, segment-type or a seven-inch multi-information display (MID), as well as an eight- or a nine-inch infotainment system.

    Other notable interior appointments include a urethane or leather steering wheel and a manual or automatic air conditioning system.

    Under the hood is either a 1.2-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a 1.0-liter turbocharged mill paired with a CVT.

    Toyota is offering the Raize in four variants priced from P751,000 to P1.051 million.

    If you’re not sold on the Toyota Raize, here are some of its segment rivals at the same price point.

    Kia Stonic

    Known to have the "style that's iconic", the Kia Stonic has the looks and features that can definitely challenge the Toyota Raize. At its front are standard projector-type halogen headlamps with either a pair of front fog lamps or DRLs. These lights flank either an all-black or a black-and-silver grille. It also offers standard front and rear skid plates, a standard roof rail, a fin-type antenna, and power rearview mirrors. The Kia Stonic rides on a set of 16-inch wheels.

    The cabin boasts more comfort amenities like cloth seats, a three-spoke polyurethane steering wheel, standard power door locks, standard power windows, and in the range-topping variant, a push start function.

    Tech features come in the form of a 3.5-inch multi-functional instrument panel and an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

    Power comes from a larger 1.4-liter engine mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic.

    Kia Philippines is selling the Stonic in four variants with a solid price point ranging from P835,000 to P990,000.

    MG ZS

    MG is yet another company that offers similarly-priced subcompact crossover SUV — like the MG ZS. Like the two vehicles before it, this automobile has no shortage of style. Front and center is its large Stardust grille bearing the “MG” badge. On both sides are halogen projector headlamps with adjustable beam height, DRLs, and fog lamps. The rear is bedecked with a similarly stunning lighting setup with the Polaris tail lamps, chrome-trimmed lower corners, and an “MG” badge on the liftgate handle.

    Inside the MG ZS offers posh amenities like faux carbon fiber-finished center console, a black or chrome-trimmed shift lever, a leather or urethane steering wheel, leather or polyurethane door panels, and leather or fabric seats.

    As for its gadgets, the MG ZS gets either a 6.4-inch or an eight-inch infotainment system paired with an instrument cluster with a mix of digital and analog gauges.

    The bonnet of the Brit-born crossover hides a 1.5-liter engine mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic with manunal Triptronic function.

    It comes in three variants with prices ranging from P818,888 to P998,000.
