TOYOTA TO LAUNCH ITS SUBCOMPACT SUV URBAN CRUISER ON 23RD SEPT. | Automotive News | Auto Reporter
Toyota Motor has approved the launch date of its upcoming Urban Cruiser. The twin of Vitara Brezza will be officially launched next week, on September 23.
The company has already started bookings for the Urban Cruiser in India with a token amount of 11000 INR. Last month. Interested customers can pre-book the Urban Cruiser at Toyota's official website and Toyota's dealership all over the country.
'Respect Package' announced last week from Toyota for the customers who pre-booked the Urban Cruiser. In this package, customers will get a no-cost periodic maintenance offer for two years or 20000kms, whichever comes first.
The Urban Cruiser will be the company's second spin-off of a Maruti car, the first one being the Baleno, which is sold as the Glanza in the Indian market. And as predicted back then, Toyota manages to sell a good number of Glanza because it has a strong market presence.
Urban Cruiser will get a two-slat wedge cut grille, trapezoidal bold fog lamp area, and split LED taillamps compared to the MS Vitara Brezza. It will come in two types of color tones: single tone and dual-tone. Single-tone type cars will come with options of Blue, Brown, White, Orange, Silver, and Grey colors while double tone type cars will come with Blue with Black, Brown with Black, and Orange with White options.
Some of the comfort and convenience-oriented highlights on the Urban Cruiser include the engine push-start or stop button and automatic AC, both of which have been retained norm over all variants, says Toyota.
It will also receive Smart Playcast touchscreen audio with Android Auto or Apple Carplay and Smartphone-based Navigation. In supplement to that, the Urban Cruiser will also have lots of features like an electrochromic rearview mirror and cruise control.
The new Urban Cruiser comes powered from a new K-Series 1.5 liter, four-cylinder petrol powertrain.
It will be available in two gearbox choices - Manual Transmission (MT) and Automatic Transmission (AT). Toyota has announced that all the AT variants will highlight advanced Lithium-Ion battery and an Integrated Starter Generator.
