The Toyota Urban Cruiser will be available in three trim – Mid, High and Premium – and even the base-spec trim comes well equipped with features. Toyota is also offering both manual and automatic gearbox options on all three trims of the sub-compact SUV.
Toyota opened bookings for the Urban Cruiser earlier last month and then, we had also come to know that the sub-compact SUV will be available in three trim levels – Mid, High and Premium. The launch of the Urban Cruiser is just round the corner, expected in later half of this month and now, we have got some fresh details about the features that would be on offer with each variant of the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is actually available in four variants – LXi, VXi, ZXi, ZXi+. The three variants of the Urban Cruiser thus correspond to the higher VXi, ZXi and ZXi+ variants of the Vitara Brezza. This means that even the base-spec Mid variant of the Urban Cruiser will come decently equipped with features that are not on offer on the base-spec Brezza. Take a detailed look at the highlight features on offer with each variant.

- LED DRLs
- LED tail-lamps
- 16-inch steel wheels
- 2-DIN audio system with USB, aux and Bluetooth connectivity

Toyota Urban Cruiser High
In addition to the Urban Cruiser Mid:
- 16-inch alloy wheels

- Cruise control
Toyota Urban Cruiser Premium
In addition to the Urban Cruiser High:
- LED fog lamps
- 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels
- Auto-dimming inside rear view mirror
- Rain-sensing wipers
As we can see, even the base trim of the Urban Cruiser gets features like full-LED headlamps with LED DRLs, auto climate control and keyless entry and go. Stepping up the mid-spec ‘High’ variant should cover all the necessities which includes the 16-inch alloy wheels and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Toyota will also be offering the option of both manual and automatic gearboxes on all three variants of the Urban Cruiser.
Toyota is offering six single-tone color option on the Urban Cruiser – Sunny White, Iconic Grey, Suave Silver, Rustic Brown, Spunky Blue and Groovy Orange. There are also three dual-tone color options – Rustic Brown/Black, Spunky Blue?Black and Groovy Orange/White. Although the changes in design from the Brezza are only to the ‘soft’ plastic parts, it brings about a noticeable difference in the look of the car. Overall, the Urban Cruiser looks a little more SUV-ish than the Brezza, clearly because of its Fortuner-influence. The Urban Cruiser also gets a dual-tone dark brown finish to the upholstery compared to the Brezza’s grey and black layout.
Under the hood, the Urban Cruiser will be powered by the same engine as the Brezza. It will thus have the 1.5L, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 104 PS and 138 Nm of peak torque. Gearbox options will include the same 5-speed MT and 4-speed torque converter automatic. Toyota will also offer the mild-hybrid system with both the transmission options on the Urban Cruiser. In case of Brezza, only the AT variants get the SHVS technology. Expect prices to be in the region of Rs 8.5-11.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
