Toyota Urban Cruiser price, variants explained

Toyota Urban Cruiser price, variants explained

The Toyota Urban Cruiser’s launch marks the entry of the Japanese automaker into the highly competitive compact SUV segment in our market. Essentially a badge-engineered version of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the sub four-metre model is the result of Toyota and Suzuki’s global alliance for sharing technology and products.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser is priced at Rs 8.40-11.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is available in three trim levels, with a single engine and two gearbox options.

  • Urban Cruiser launched in three trim levels – Mid, High and Premium
  • All three variants get manual and automatic gearbox options
  • Even the entry-level Urban Cruiser is reasonably well-equipped  

Toyota Urban Cruiser engine details

Like most of its components, the Urban Cruiser shares its running gear with its Maruti Suzuki sibling and is powered by a 105hp, 138Nm petrol engine. The 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, naturally-aspirated unit comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox. The automatic version also benefits from Suzuki’s fuel saving, mild-hybrid tech.

Toyota Urban Cruiser price and features, variant wise

The Urban Cruiser has been launched in three trim levels – Mid, High and Premium – with each variant offering the choice of manual and automatic transmissions. The variants are based on the Maruti Vitara Brezza’s top three trims – VXi, ZXi and ZXi+ – and consequently, even the entry-level version of the Urban Cruiser is reasonably well equipped.

Here is a look at the variant-wise prices and features.

Toyota Urban Cruiser competition
