Toyota has officially revealed the Belta sedan, which will go on sale in Middle Eastern markets very soon. It is a rebadged version of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and features identical styling, with the only difference being the different logos.
With the Belta, Toyota has gone down the same route as it did with the Glanza as it carries over the same mechanicals, features list, and even the design from its Maruti Suzuki counterpart, with the only change being the Toyota badging. The Belta hasn’t even received an updated front-end, like we saw with the Toyota Urban Cruiser (when compared to the Maruti Vitara Brezza).. The cabin design is also identical to Ciaz.
The Belta is powered by the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine that is offered in the Ciaz. It produces 103 BHP and 138 Nm. Unlike its Maruti twin though, the Toyota is only available with a 4-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox in the middle-eastern market.
The Toyota Belta will be manufactured in India for left-hand drive markets including the Middle East.
