The above table indicates that all manual variants and the base Mid automatic variant of the Toyota Urban Cruiser is priced at a premium of Rs 5,000 over the Vitara Brezza. The High and Premium automatic variants are pricier by Rs 15,000. 

In terms of design, there are some bits that make the Urban Cruiser stand out. This includes a Toyota styled twin-slat grille and more aggressive fog lamp housing. The rest of the SUV looks similar to the Brezza with highlights such as LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs, LED tail lights and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

Heading inside, you get a similar cabin aside from a coffee-brown color scheme. It features everything from the Brezza including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, smartphone navigation, smart entry with push button stop/start, steering-mounted audio controls, climate control, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. Safety kit includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors with rear view camera and ISOFIX child seat mountings 

 

It gets the same heart as the Vitara Brezza, the 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine. This unit produces 105PS of power and 138Nm of torque and can be had with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed torque converter. Fuel efficiency figures are claimed at 17.03kmpl (MT) and 18.76kmpl (AT), which are identical to the Brezza. The automatic variants also benefit from a mild-hybrid system featuring auto idle start-stop and torque boost.  

 

The Toyota Urban Cruiser is offered with colour options such as white, silver, blue, grey, orange and brown. It also gets dual-tone options in the form of blue/black, brown/black and orange/white combinations available only with the range topping variant. Aside from the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, it goes up against the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, and Mahindra XUV300.
