Brezza-Based 2020 Toyota Urban Cruiser SUV - Bookings Opening Soon

Brezza-Based 2020 Toyota Urban Cruiser SUV - Bookings Opening Soon

Toyota recently announced that bookings for its first sub-4m SUV, Urban Cruiser 2020 will open on August 22. The Toyota Urban Cruiser is based on the Vitara Brezza and even made by Maruti Suzuki. However, wearing the Toyota badge gets it some extra love and affection from among Toyota fans who love the brand for making reliable cars. When their cars require some attention, Toyota dealerships are known for handlining the issues to customer’s satisfaction.

This is not the first time Toyota partnered with Maruti Suzuki on a rebadge. The Baleno/Glanza twins were the first ones but Toyota didn’t give the Glanza a distinct design to differentiate it from the Baleno. This time around, the Urban Cruiser gets a Fortuner-inspired grille and redesigned bumper to look more like a Toyota SUV.

Based on the leaked images, the most notable difference between the Urban Cruiser and the Vitara Brezza is limited to the front grille and bumpers. Everything else remains the same - even the alloy wheels.

A report from Rushlane hints at a launch date of September 22, 2020, which aligns the Urban Cruiser’s launch timeline with the upcoming festivities. Deliveries could commence on November 2, 2020.

In terms of engine specs, the Toyota Urban Cruiser will have the same figures as the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza as it will borrow the same engine with the same tuning. Therefore, we expect its mileage figures to also be exactly the same as the Brezza’s. Here are the expected engine specs of the Toyota Urban Cruiser:

Just like the Glanza, we can expect the Urban Cruiser’s dimensions to also be identical to the Brezza’s. Here’s a quick glance at the figures:

The notable features of the Toyota Urban Cruiser are:

  • Cruise control
  • Front and rear armrests
  • Auto AC
  • 7-inch touchscreen
  • Android Auto
  • Apple Carplay
  • 16-inch alloy wheels

  • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
  • Rear defogger
  • Rear washer wiper
  • Electronic stability control
  • Hill-start assist
  • Auto wipers

Judging by the Brezza’s brochure, the Urban Cruiser will have the following notable features missing:

  • Rear AC vents
  • Thorax and curtain airbags
  • Air purifier
  • Premium sound system
  • Telematics
  • Front parking sensors
  • Electric sunroof

We expect it to be available in top 3 variants comparable with Brezza’s, which are VXI, ZXI and ZXI Plus. The Urban Cruiser will come in the following 9 (6 solid and 3 dual-tone) colours:

  • Brown
  • Grey
  • White
  • Silver
  • Orange
  • Blue
  • Brown with black roof
  • Orange with white roof
  • Blue with black roof

Although the Urban Cruiser is entering a crowded sub-4m SUV space, its prime rival will be Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. After that, the upcoming Kia Sonet is also looking like a serious threat and so are the popular options like the Hyundai Venue and Tata Nexon.
