Last year, Toyota Kirloskar Motor decided to make use of the brand’s global product-sharing agreement with Suzuki to introduce the Urban Cruiser in India, which is basically a rebadged version of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza – one of the best-selling sub-4m SUVs in the country.

Now, Toyota has launched the Urban Cruiser in South Africa at a starting price of R247,900, which converts to about Rs 12.13 lakh in Indian currency. The car will be offered in three variants, namely Xi, Xs and Xr. The entry-level Xi trim comes equipped with features like keyless-entry with push-button start/stop, electric windows, air-conditioning, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, electrically-adjustable mirrors, LED headlamps and LED DRLs.

The mid-level Xs variant additionally gets alloy wheels, roof rails, body-coloured door handles, power-retractable mirrors and a rear window wiper with demister function. Inside the cabin, this variant gets an automatic climate control, a reverse camera, and a secondary glove compartment.
