Yesterday, we managed to receive insider information about Toyota's upcoming vehicle, the 2022 Veloz. According to our well-placed source, the PH-spec Veloz will be available in two variants and will have a starting price of PHP 1.185 million.

Today, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has confirmed that the all-new Veloz is now in the country. Set to officially debut on April 29, 2022, the soon-to-be-revealed Veloz is now its own model and is no longer just a variant name of the Avanza. Billed by Toyota as its newest subcompact SUV, it's set to combine stylish looks with features and performance that are designed for adventures.

Based on the teaser image provided, the PH-spec Veloz will look similar to the vehicle launched last year in Indonesia. It gets a blacked-out grille with unique inlays, inverted L-shaped accents on the foglights, a distinct lower air intake, and what appears to be new LED headlights.

“The upcoming introduction of the All-New Veloz marks another milestone for Toyota in the Philippines. Previously known as the top grade variant of the Avanza compact MPV range, the Veloz has evolved to become a new standalone brand ready to claim its position as a sub-compact SUV of choice for customers seeking new adventures,” said Sherwin Chualim, TMP's First Vice President for Vehicle Sales Operations.
