Reports in Japan this week suggested that Toyota and Suzuki are in talks to collaborate in the manufacture of compact and small cars for emerging markets, including India and South-east Asia.

Reports in Japan this week suggested that Toyota and Suzuki are in talks to collaborate in the manufacture of compact and small cars for emerging markets, including India and South-east Asia.

The two companies denied the reports carried in the Nikkei business daily and by Kyodo News. The Nikkei also suggested a capital tie-up is also being discussed.

The reports suggest Suzuki would benefit from Toyota's more advanced technologies in areas such as new energy vehicles and automated driving.

Suzuki has had unsuccessful tie-ups in the past with global manufacturers such as General Motors and Volkswagen.
