Home / News / Toyota Pull the Plug on Urban Cruiser


Toyota have officially pulled the plug on the Urban Cruiser and the vehicle has been removed from the fleet list on the official website as well.


Urban Cruiser was the first compact SUV from the company, a rebadged Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza from the stables of Toyota. While Maruti Suzuki have given the Brezza a cosmetic upgrade along with additional features, Toyota have decided to discontinue the project. The company has the Urban Hyryder and that will carry the baton for the compact SUV race in the country. Apart from the Hyryder, the company also has Innova Crysta, Hilux and Fortuner that are holding their own in their respective segments. On the other hand, we can expect the company to launch a sub compact SUV in its lineup under the Urban Cruiser badging or a different one.

The Urban Cruiser housed a 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to a five-speed transmission. The engine developed 103 hp and 136 Nm of peak torque. It was available in three trims –Med, High and Premium. There was a four-speed automatic on offer as well. The car featured keyless entry, push button start, seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Andorid Auto and Apple CarPlay and automatic climate control to name a few. In terms of safety, the car came with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
