    please advice

    • Editorial Team

      June 2, 2016 at 8:10 PMJun

      The reason Toyota is delaying its launch is probably due to NGT’s ban on diesel cars above 2000cc in the national capita, which is quite a crucial market for the company. Also, NGT has given hints at imposing this ban in other states as well which is creating a lot of confusion among carmarkers in India. And the reason it’s called 2016 model is because globally it’s called 2016 model.

    Since this will be a similar spec to the Australian model. It would be good to know if the 4WD transfer case is still an old fashioned, Part Time, On Demand unit or hopefully a more modern Constant or Auto engaging unit as exists in the Prado, Endeavour, Pajero and many others.
    Constant 4WD allows 4WD to be used on hard surfaces or on surfaces which frequently change from wet to dry to hard to loose etc.
    Part Time, On Demand 4WD can only be used on loose surfaces as there is no allowance for slippage.
    Constant 4WD is a definite safety and performance advantage which why I’m asking.
