Toyota Urban Cruiser features and interiors officially revealed
Toyota Kirloskar Motor has now listed details of the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser on its website. The bookings for the sub-four-metre SUV have already begun online or at dealerships for Rs 11,000. The Urban Cruiser is a lightly reworked Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and is the second car to come out of the Suzuki-Toyota partnership in India.
Toyota has now revealed that the Urban Cruiser will get an extensive LED light package that includes LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs, LED fog lamps and LED taillamps. Standard across variants will be keyless-entry with push-button start and automatic climate control. Other feature highlights will be cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming inner rear-view mirror and the 7-inch Smartplay Studio touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto/Apple Carplay.
It has also now been confirmed that the Urban Cruiser will differentiate itself on the inside from the Vitara Brezza through dark brown upholstery and door trim, along with the grey dashboard from the Brezza. Also unique to the Urban Cruiser is the new Rustic Brown paint shade, available in both single and dual-tone. This is one of six single-tone and three dual-tone paint options.
Visually, the SUV gets a new grille similar to what is seen on the Fortuner with the twin horizontal slats and the vertical elements finished in silver. Also new is the larger foglamp inserts in the front bumper and a different design for the 16-inch alloy wheels.
Prices for the Vitara Brezza start from Rs 7.34 lakh for the LXi, going up to Rs 11.40 lakh for the ZXi Plus Dual Tone AT. For the Urban Cruiser, Toyota seems to be following the same strategy that it did for the Glanza. The feature-set shows that it could bring in the mid and top-spec variants of the Suzuki at a similar or marginally lower price. The differentiating factor will be the three year/100,000 km warranty that the Urban Cruiser will come with as standard.
The Urban Cruiser will be powered by the same engine as the Vitara Brezza it's based on. This means the K15B 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol with 105PS and 138Nm. This will be paired with a five-speed manual and four-speed torque-convertor automatic. The Urban Cruiser will also get the 48V mild-hybrid set up for the AT versions.
