Toyota teases Vitara Brezza-based Urban Cruiser

Toyota has released a teaser image of its upcoming Urban Cruiser crossover. It is the brand's first compact SUV in India.

The Urban Cruiser is a re-badged version of the Maruti Vitara Brezza. It is expected to get a few cosmetic changes including a new grille to help differentiate it from Maruti's version.

The Urban Cruiser could get light coloured interiors and the usual set of features like a touchscreen infotainment head-unit, automatic climate control, cruise control among others.

The Urban Cruiser is likely to be powered by the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol mild-hybrid powertrain from the Vitara Brezza. This engine makes 104 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm @ 4,400 rpm and comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota has not revealed the launch date of the Urban Cruiser. However, rumours suggest that bookings could open on August 22, 2020.
