As a part of Toyota's global strategy, Toyota is concentrating hard on increasing the safety of cars in India, while simultaneously reducing the cost of manufacturing the cars. To initiate the process, Toyota has unveiled a new platform called the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which will be shared across many cars, reducing the cost of manufacturing manifolds.

As much as the platform will be rigid, it will also be lighter and compact and can be used in both the front and rear drive cars in the future. The new TNGA platform also promises improved handling, thanks to a lower-mounted powertrain, which will result in the lowest center of gravity compared to any of its mainstream rivals. Toyota says that as much as 50% of the cars by 2020 will underpin the TNGA platform.

The world's largest car manufacturer currently has more than 100 platforms and sub-platforms. According to Toyota, the new TNGA vehicle will help the new vehicles get around 15 percent of more power, mated to more efficient automatic and CVT gearboxes and much more efficient thermally. Bundle it with the fifth generation hybrid powertrain and you will get 15 percent more economy. 

Toyota's TNGA will join the likes of Volkswagen’s MQB, Audi’s MLB, Renaults CMFA, Mercedes’ MFA and MRA.
