On September 23, 2020, the Toyota Urban Cruiser will be launched in India. The first compact SUV from Toyota, the Urban Cruiser, is based on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and is the second product of the Carmaker to be built in India under the Maruti Suzuki partnership.
The urban cruiser is the second badge designed model that is based on the Vitara Brezza and is the product of the Toyota-Maruti Suzuki Alliance of India. Unlike the Baleno-Glanza effort, however, Toyota has decided to make a more distinct look for the Urban Cruiser with a revamped front fascia with a different bumper and a grill. The SUV is unchanged from that of Brezza, otherwise.
Once again there is little to set up Toyota apart from the sister car, except for Toyota and the brown seat tapestry, when you move to the Urban cruiser cabin. The Urban Cruiser is available in three levels – medium, high, and premium. As with Glanza, the Toyota version has been based on the Vitara Brezza ‘s higher trims, even the base mid variant has an audio system like LED headlights, auto climate control, keyless inputs.
