Toyota Urban Cruiser bookings are ongoing, and launch is scheduled for next month
Essentially, a rebadged Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, this is the 2nd product from Toyota that shares a platform with MSIL. The first being Toyota Glanza based on Maruti Baleno. No surprise that features, and looks are familiar.
No doubt both vehicle look same / similar but one can spot redesigned elements, including the front bumper and fog lamp encasing. Front redesign elements are necessary to ensure both vehicles wear a distinctive look.
Urban Cruiser gets power from a 1.5l, 4 Cyl petrol engine with manual and automatic transmission (AT) options. All AT variants feature advanced Li-on with ISG mild hybrid system. This assists with torque (delivering better acceleration), regenerative braking, and idle start/stop.
