The sub-four-metre SUV’s run has come to an end in a bit over two years in the country, it was launched in September 2020


  • Toyota Urban Cruiser was a rebadged version of the old Maruti Vitara Brezza.
  • The Hyryder is now Toyota’s entry-level SUV.
  • Replacement for the Urban Cruiser is unlikely to arrive in the near future.
  • Baleno crossover-based SUV could head to Toyota showrooms next.
  • Urban Cruiser was priced from Rs 9.02 lakh to Rs 11.73 lakh (ex-showroom).

Toyota India has all but officially discontinued the Urban Cruiser subcompact SUV. The model has been pulled down from Toyota’s website as well and a replacement is unlikely to come anytime soon. For now, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Toyota’s Creta challenger, will be the carmaker’s entry-level SUV. 


The Urban Cruiser was Toyota’s entrant in the sub-four-metre SUV segment in India. Introduced back in September 2020, it was a rebadged version of the previous generation Maruti Vitara Brezza with different styling elements up front. While Maruti gave the Brezza a much-needed generation update, the Toyota version is unlikely to get the same treatment anytime soon.


Toyota’s subcompact SUV was offered in three trims: Mid, High and Premium. All of them came with a choice of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic, teamed with Maruti Suzuki’s 105PS, 1.5-litre petrol engine. If you’re in the used car market, looking to pick up the Urban Cruiser, our first drive review of the Vitara Brezza (they are the same underneath the skin) should give you a fair idea of how the SUV drives.

In terms of features, the Urban Cruiser had all the essentials, including a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, keyless entry with push button start, cruise control and a multi-info display. Passenger safety was taken care of by dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors, while it received a four-star safety rating from Global NCAP. 


If Toyota does introduce a successor to the Urban Cruiser, the SUV might have a different name as the ‘Urban Cruiser’ prefix is used by the Hyryder. We could also see Toyota’s version of the Maruti Baleno crossover that’s under development as the brand’s new entry-level offering.
