It is not entirely fair to simply box the Toyota Urban Cruiser as a rebadged Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Indeed the variant is a product of the Toyota/Suzuki alliance, but it remains a worthy addition to the Toyota family. The sales of the Urban Cruiser alone speak volumes (pun not intended) about the great appeal that the vehicle has. The latest range is available in 5 different models:

  • New Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 Xi
  • New Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 Xs
  • New Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 Xs A/T
  • New Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 XR
  • New Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 XR A/T

Toyota Urban Cruiser captured next to graffiti

The compact SUV has plenty to offer the market. Customer reviews buzz about the pleasant driving experience that the range offers, and it is especially suited to those who prefer a manual transmission. The engine beneath the hood is a keen and consistent performer, with the Toyota Urban Cruiser even capable of navigating gravel and certain off-road surfaces. This is especially impressive given that the Urban Cruiser is not a 4x4.

The exterior is refreshingly modern and stylish, escaping the sometimes cumbersome aesthetic usually associated with family vehicles. The interior of the model is well put together, spacious, and focused on being functional. Whilst many vehicles offer a busy cabin and complex innovation, the Toyota Urban Cruiser does the opposite. The most recognizable feature (especially amongst Toyota enthusiasts) would be the inclusion of the Touchscreen Multimedia System, which allows customers to link their smart devices to the system via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Apart from the range of vehicle specifications and performance, one of the most impressive aspects of the Toyota Urban Cruiser would be the pricing. The entry-model Toyota Urban Cruiser 1.5 Xi retails for R274 900, making the SUV the perfect choice for those just entering the market. Let’s explore some of the model's accessories.
