Highlights

  • The Toyota Urban Cruiser is essentially a re-badged Maruti Vitara Brezza
  • Upfront, it gets a new grille and bumper along with new alloy wheels.
  • It remains unchanged on the inside and shares its engine with the Brezza.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser has gone on sale in India today and when you'll see it on the road, it won't take you long to guess that it's actually a Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza with a relatively new face. And of course! The Toyota badge will tell you which showroom to head to if it just might interest you. If you are an auto regular, you would remember that Toyota and Suzuki entered into a pact in 2019 which has provisions for both carmakers to share models, drivetrains and technologies in select markets. So just like the Glanza which is the re-badged Maruti Suzuki Baleno, even the Urban Cruiser will be retailed from Toyota dealerships. But this time around, Toyota has made a subtle attempt to give the Urban Cruiser its own identity. Well sort of! Here's is how different it actually will be from the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser gets a new face and new alloy wheels.

So it gets a new face. Almost all changes on the outside of the Toyota Urban Cruiser are centred on its face. There's a new and bigger twin horizontal slat grille and a tweaked front bumper which make it look more imposing. However, other elements like the fog lamps and headlights along with DRLs among others are exactly what we get on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Facelift. The Profile and rear of the Urban Cruiser too remain similar to the Vitara Brezza, save for the 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels which look slightly different. In fact, the Toyota Urban Cruiser is actually what you would expect the Vitara Brezza Facelift to look like and that's not a bad thing.
