Toyota today marked its entry into the very popular subcompact SUV segment in India with the new Toyota Urban Cruiser. Rivalling the likes of the newly-launched Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser is a rebadged version of the Brezza and is the second product to roll out from the global partnership between Suzuki and Toyota. The Toyota sports distinguishing exterior features like a new grille, and redesigned bumpers.
The Urban Cruiser boasts a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It gets an engine start-stop button, climate control, a dual-tone interior theme, auto-dimming IRVM, steering mounted controls for audio and cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, and more.
Powertrain options are the same as the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza which means it gets a K Series 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 103 hp and 138 Nm and is paired with a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission. The automatic variants come with mild-hybrid tech.
Toyota Urban Cruiser variant-wise prices:
Mid-grade MT – Rs 8.4 lakh
Mid-grade AT – Rs 9.8 lakh
High-grade MT – Rs 9.15 lakh
High-grade AT – Rs 10.65 lakh
Premium-grade MT – Rs 9.8 lakh
Premium-grade AT – Rs 11.30 lakh
In terms of safety, the Urban Cruiser comes with all the basic requirements that include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, speed alert warning, seat belt alert, and rear parking sensors, along with Hill Ascent Assist in the automatic variants.
The Urban Cruiser comes in six solid colour options – Sunny White, Iconic Grey, Suave Silver, Rustic Brown, Spunky Blue, Groovy Orange, and three dual-tone options – Rustic Brown with Sizzling Black roof, Groovy Orange with Sunny White roof, and Spunky Blue with Sizzling Black Roof.
