Toyota’s Brezza version likely to be called Urban Cruiser
The Suzuki Toyota alliance’s first product was the Toyota Glanza. It is basically a Maruti Baleno with Toyota badges and very minimal styling changes.
Now the second product is the Maruti Vitara Brezza’s rebadged Toyota product. It is likely to be called Toyota Urban Cruiser as the Japanese carmaker has recently trademarked this name.
The Urban Cruiser name takes inspiration from the high-end Toyota Land Cruiser SUVs. While the Cruiser name will represent the SUV character of the new product, the Urban moniker suggests the compact dimensions and practical nature for urban usage.
We can expect more differentiations between the Vitara Brezza and Urban Cruiser apart from the Toyota badges. The Urban Cruiser will get the same 1.5-litre BS6 compliant petrol engine.
The pricing will play an important role in the sales of the compact SUV since it is competing with Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, upcoming Kia Sonet, etc. The Toyota Urban Cruiser is expected to launch soon after the lockdown is over in our country.
