We all know that Maruti Suzuki and Toyota are into an agreement that allows them to share some of their products, components and technology. Toyota Glanza which is a rebadged Maruti Baleno was the first product to come out from this tie up. Toyota is now planning to launch the second product under this partnership which is likely to be a rebadged version of Vitara Brezza compact SUV. Maruti Suzuki has already confirmed that they will soon start supplying Brezza to Toyota to be rebadged. Here we have a new render image that shows what the upcoming Toyota-badged Brezza or the Urban Cruiser SUV could look like.
According to the render image, the Urban Cruiser will be getting a revised front fascia. It will look nothing like a regular Maruti Vitara Brezza SUV. The point of attraction in the front, will be the huge grille that is similar to Toyota’s recently launched Corolla Cross SUV. The front bumper has also been revised and it now gets sharp scoop in it with LED fog lamps positioned inside.
The headlamps retain the same shape as the one seen in Vitara Brezza. It gets projector type headlamps that go well with the overall design at the front. Just like Brezza, Urban Cruiser will also get a dual tone finish and the alloy wheels also retain the same design with Toyota logo in the centre instead of Maruti. Apart from revising the front of the car, nothing else has actually changed in the car. It still gets the same old split LED tail lights at the rear, chrome door handles, roof rails and black cladding all around the car.
The Maruti Vitara Brezza recently got an update and is now BS6 compliant. It was earlier powered by a 1.3 litre diesel engine and that engine got discontinued. It is now available with a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that has been developed by Suzuki in-house. The 1.5 litre engine generates 105 Ps and 138 Nm of torque and is available with manual and automatic gearbox. The same engine and gearbox option is expected to be seen in Toyota Urban Cross SUV as well. The Urban Cross is expected to be priced similar to the Brezza. The launch is slated to happen in a couple of months from now, and deliveries will begin soon after.
