If you drop in at a UMW Toyota Motor showroom and take a close look at the Toyota Unser, chances are you’ll find that the gearlever is different and for an automatic transmission. Although not officially on sale, UMW Toyota Motor is already putting the additional variant in some of its showrooms and is taking orders.
According to a salesman AUTOWORLD.COM.MY spoke to, the Unser Automatic will be officially on sale in the near future. The approved price has not been obtained yet but the estimated price quoted by the salesman was RM82,000, inclusive of insurance. “Usually, our estimated price is quite close to what the actual price will be,” he said.
UMW Toyota Motor’s marketing department staff declined to elaborate on the new model or when it will be launched but a look at the latest catalogue shows the specifications of the automatic transmission as a 4-speeder with electronic controls. It will only be available with the 1.8-litre petrol EFI engine and not the 2.4-litre diesel.
