Toyota is now officially accepting bookings for the all-new Urban Cruiser, which is the brand’s second rebadged product in India after the Glanza. Based on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the all-new Urban Cruiser will be Toyota first car in the sub-4m compact SUV segment in India. Here are all the details that you want to know.
The all-new Toyota Urban Cruiser has been personalised by Toyota with quite a few changes when compared to the Glanza. Looking at the Urban Cruiser, you will be reminded of other Toyota cars. In fact, the grill of the Urban Cruiser is designed in such a way that it looks very similar to the Toyota Fortuner. There is a two-slat grille in the front with a new bumper and faux skid plate. It comes with LED headlamps and fog lamps just like the Vitara Brezza.
On the side, the Urban Cruiser gets a new set of 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. Since Toyota is yet to reveal the variant details officially, it is likely that the base variants will get different set of alloy wheels. At the rear, the upcoming car gets a different bumper.
The cabin layout of the all-new Urban Cruiser will remain similar to that of the Vitara Brezza. However, a new colour scheme has added to the vehicle to set it apart. Apart from the updated logo on the steering wheel, the cabin gets dark brown and black tone cabin. The dark brown tone sure looks very premium on the Urban Cruiser.
The feature list includes a few standard features like keyless entry and push-button start-stop feature along with automatic climate control system will remain standard across all the variants. The top-end variant will come with features like automatic rain-sensing wipers, cruise control system, auto-dimming electrochromic rearview mirror and the Smart Playcast touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay system with smartphone-based navigation system.
Just like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Urban Cruiser will come powered by a single-engine option. There will be K-Series 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine available with the all-new Urban Cruiser. It will generate a similar 105 PS of maximum power and 138 Nm of peak torque. It will get SHVS Smart Hybrid system that will come with Integrated Generator System with the four-speed automatic variants. However, the manual variants will be offered without the SHVS Smart Hybrid system. This will be similar to the Vitara Brezza.
Toyota will also offer a longer warranty than the Marui Suzuki and is likely to put a premium price tag on the car. The Urban Cruiser will also face competition from the likes of upcoming Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite apart from established models like the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the likes.
