Toyota has teased the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser for the first time before its debut in India. The Urban Cruiser is expected to be launched in India either by late August or early September. Unlike Glanza, the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser won’t be just a re-badged Vitara Brezza and will receive significant design and interior changes. From the teased image it can be seen that the Urban Cruiser will be different, as it seems to have a new Toyota grille with twin chrome strips and a different design for the alloy wheels. Mechanically, however, the Urban Cruiser will be identical to the Vitara Brezza.
The Vitara Brezza, to which the Urban Cruiser is identical to, is powered by the K15B 1.5 litre BSVI compliant petrol motor as seen in the Ciaz and Ertiga which makes 105 bhp and 138 Nm torque and gets the Smart Hybrid tech. The motor is paired with either a five-speed manual or four-speed auto. Like the Glanza, the Toyota badged SUV is expected to be manufactured by Suzuki at its facility in India and priced quite similarly to the Brezza. This will be the second car to come from the Toyota-Suzuki partnership in India. The two Japanese companies signed an agreement in 2018 to allow them to co-develop models supply chains and technologies for global markets.
