Spyshots have revealed the final exterior design of the Toyota Calya, which draws cues from the Toyota Agya and Avanza. It measures 4,070 mm in length, 1,655 mm in width and 1,600 mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,525 mm and a ground clearance of 180 mm.

The front-end has a bold chrome bar flanked by a pair of regular headlamps, while the bumper houses a large hexagonal grille and foglamps. At the back, it features Innova-inspired taillamps, roof spoiler and a bold chrome applique above the registration plate area. Top-end variants will ride on 14 inch alloy wheels, as seen in spyshots.

The only engine option in the Toyota Calya is a 3NR-FE 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 88 PS (87.76 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 108 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. It is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, while a 4-speed automatic transmission is available in both grades.

4. Features

The Toyota Calya is available with a 2-DIN music system, power-operated ORVM controls and power windows for first and second row, roof-mounted rear HVAC vents, MID, one-touch tumble second row seats, dual SRS airbags and reversing sensors.
The G grade gets foglamp with garnish, electric mirrors with integrated turn signals, silver trim on door panels and dashboard, chrome HVAC vents and chrome-trimmed gear lever.

Similar to the Toyota Avanza-Daihatsu Xenia relationship, Daihatsu will also launch a rebadged version of the Calya – dubbed as the Daihatsu Sigra. One of the biggest differences with the Calya is that the Sigra will additionally offer a smaller 1KR-FE 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine producing 67 PS (66.06 hp) and 89 Nm of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
