The S+ is the highest trim option for the 1.2-litre NA petrol engine

Toyota has introduced its sixth co-engineered model with Maruti Suzuki, based on the Fronx. It is called the Urban Cruiser Taisor and is priced from Rs 7.74 lakh (ex-showroom). Bookings for the most affordable Toyota SUV have already commenced at dealerships for Rs 21,000. It can be opted for in five broad trim levels namely E, S, S+, G, and V. This article details the mid-spec S+ variant and everything it gets and misses out on.  

Exterior

Up front, the S+ variant gets LED DRLs and turn indicators in Toyota’s unique signature which looks different from the 3-slot DRLs found in the Fronx. The full LED headlight cluster has been carried forward from the Fronx and even gets a follow-me-home function. 

On the profile, the mid-spec S+ variant can be seen with all-black alloy wheels. The door handles and ORVMs are body-coloured, as opposed to the black ones found on the base variant. The turn indicators are placed on the ORVMs, but this variant misses out on UV-cut window glasses. The underbody, door and wheel arch cladding is standard across all variants.

From the rear, the S+ variant looks identical to the base E variant as it misses out on a wiper and washer. It does still retain the shark-fin antenna, roof-end spoiler and rear defogger. Again, the connecting taillights are not lit centrally like in the base variants. 

Even though there are minor tweaks made to the exterior, the overall silhouette and underpinnings remain similar to the Fronx. 

Interior

The interior layout of the Urban Cruiser Taisor mirrors that of the Suzuki Fronx, featuring a dual-tone color scheme. However, unlike the base variants, it does get a 7-inch infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, speakers, and steering-mounted controls. Although it includes a flat-bottom steering wheel, it lacks the luxury of being leather-wrapped. The door handles are finished in black rather than chrome, as seen in the higher variants.

Moreover, the outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs) are now electrically adjustable and have an auto-folding function which isn’t available on the base variants. However, the IRVM is still manual. Fabric upholstery is standard in this variant, and customers also get the parcel tray which is an optional extra for the base variants. 

Feature misses for the S+ variant include rear AC vents, a front centre armrest, and height adjustment for the driver seat. That said, the rear seats offer a 60:40 split functionality.

Safety

The safety list of the S+ variant includes dual airbags, ABS, EBD, 3-point seatbelts for all occupants, and seat-belt reminders. Vehicle stability control, hill hold assist, and ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard across the range. The S+ variant misses out on 360 degree and rear view camera setup, but customers do get rear parking sensors. 

Features 

An automatic climate control unit can be found as standard across all trim levels in the Taisor. Customers do get remote central locking as standard, but no push-button start/stop functionality for this S+ variant. The steering column has tilt functionality but misses out on telescopic movement. Other misses include cruise control, wireless phone charger and charging ports (USB Type A & C) for the rear passengers.

Powertrain

The mid-spec S+ variant is offered with a 90 PS/113 Nm 1.2 litre K-series naturally aspirated engine which can be opted with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed AMT. Paddle Shifters for the automatic transmission variant is exclusive to higher trims and is a miss for this variant. Notably, the CNG variant is limited to the base E variant and cannot be had with the S+ trim.

The mid-spec S+ variant starts at Rs 9 lakh for the manual transmission and Rs 9.53 lakh (all prices ex-showroom) for the AMT version, commanding a premium of Rs 53,000 over the manual variant. The next 1-litre turbo petrol G MT variant costs Rs 1.03 lakh more.

Apart from competing with the Maruti Fronx, the Urban Cruiser Taisor also rivals other sub-4 metre SUVs such as the Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger.
