Default Re: Toyota to launch Urban Cruiser (rebadged Vitara Brezza) in FY 2020-21

After Glanza debuted with just a logo change, now a change in grille on a Maruti car has become a 'master-stroke' product from Toyota.

Our expectations from Toyota (below Innova segments) truly has hit rock bottom and how!

That said - Urban Cruiser should do decent sales because Brezza is quite a well rounded product from MSIL stable. Still looks ok, build quality is decent (and would have matched the sibling - SCross, if only the plastics were half as decent), the 1.5 petrol is very driveable, space and packaging is good too. The automatic, especially, is very boring to drive - but I doubt that target market for Toyota complains anyway.

If priced at similar levels as the Maruti - I would prefer Toyota for their superior service quality (Not network coverage, but transparent service practices and billing - the best I have experienced at one of their Bangalore centres).

Checked on Toyota's website. Seemed much better than Brezza.

The only two things different inside the Urban Cruiser -
  1. "T" logo on the steering wheel.
  2. New brown interior fabric shade (seats and arm rests).

Ok TaurusSHO, ignore me.

I haven't been inside a Brezza yet. I just visited the Toyota website, and for comparison headed over to the MS website. From the MS web site the interiors looked a bit different to me.

Hi all, I have a few questions about this.

On the Toyota website it says that the auto version will come with Li-battery.

Is it the same smart hybrid as in Brezza? Will it have a difference in mileage? my daily drive before covid was 50kms and sooner or later that will return.

Can I look at this as my daily driver if the hybrid can perform in start stop traffic of Noida to Gurgaon daily travel?

Yes, the smart hybrid system in the AT Urban Cruiser is same as that in the AT Brezza.

It can definitely be your daily driver and will perform very well in stop start traffic, but it’s not as full fledged as the Camry’s hybrid system where it can run on electric power solely for a few kilometers.

Regarding mileage compared to the Brezza I don’t think there will be any difference since the entire car is the same. You can wait for the official ARAI fuel efficiency.

Toyota Fortuner owners, I have nothing more to say. You should probably sue CarToq for defamation for calling it a mini-fortuner!

This must be the worst automatic transmission currently sold under Toyota name anywhere in the world.

This model sharing partnership between Toyota and Maruti Suzuki is only going to benefit Toyota in the long run in my opinion. I mean people would love to buy a Toyota badged car at a Maruti Suzuki price but the vice versa will never be true.

I mean imagine buying a Maruti Suzuki sedan for 20 lakhs. That's one of the reasons why models like the Kizashi didn't do well in India despite being mechanically sound.

Plus this gives Toyota a chance to enter into the more affordable car market which it was earlier struggling to do with the Etios and Etios Liva.

Seems like a clear Toyota win to me :P

From the Suzuki side, the win is the access it gets to Toyota's Hybrid and EV tech. The higher end cars of Toyota might also start helping Suzuki in the long run as our economy continues its growth and the current Suzuki owners have enough buying capacity to spend double what they spend today.

From Toyota side, I'm still not sure until the time both these brands develop a vehicle together from scratch.

Why no Diesel? Aren't the Etios Diesel BS6 ready? The 1.5P and AT transmission seems to be from Breeza.

Did we miss something?

Forget Etios diesel the Etios car is being discontinued in India.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/india...os-liva-3.html (What is the future of the Toyota Etios / Liva?)

Toyota is not going to import or put in the R&D effort to build new compact diesel and petrol engines for India.

You missed the bus. There is no diesel because Brezza hasn't got a diesel engine now. And yes, this is a Brezza with a different bumper and a T logo.

Etios is not on sale now in India as it's engines don't conform to BS6 emissions.
