Toyota Urban Cruiser Find Your Fun

Ushering in the next instalment in Toyota’s passenger car expansion strategy, is the new Urban Cruiser. Conceived as a fun, affordable and compact crossover vehicle, the Urban Cruiser has been designed to play in the city during weekdays, while taking you to your next adventure on the weekend.

In addition, the Urban Cruiser is the second product of the Toyota-Suzuki alliance (following the Starlet), building upon the core model architecture, while bringing Toyota’s comprehensive dealer support, customer service and parts’ supply network to the party.
Exterior Styling
The Urban Cruiser features rugged urban styling replete with a raised stance, textured side- and wheel-arch mouldings and bumper guards. The front features a large radiator grille with two horizontal slats and centrally-mounted Toyota insignia – these are flanked by chrome accent strips and LED projector headlamps (standard across the range).
Interior Styling
The cabin offers a comfortable space characterised by excellent ergonomics and optimised exterior visibility. The upper fascia houses the large touchscreen infotainment system and ventilation outlets with an elegant piano-black frame. The lower section incorporates the climate control switchgear, a storage compartment and power/USB outlets. A sporty 3-spoke steering wheel (leather-sheathed for the Xr model) with metallic inserts and steering switches provides classic control.
The twin-hooded instrument binnacle features easy-to-read elliptical gauges and a centrally-mounted Multi-Information Display (MID). A unique feature is the silver trim inserts with 3D cube-shaped motif, which lend an element of brightness to the dashboard and door panels.
Engine & Transmission
The Urban Cruiser is powered by 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine delivering 77 kW and 138 Nm – providing fuss-free motoring. Fuel consumption is registered at a frugal 6.2 litres per 100km, while CO2 emissions fall within the 145 to 147 g/km range. Top speed is 170 km/h.
Buyers have the option of a 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic (depending on grade chosen) – all driving the front wheels.
Suspension & Chassis
A traditional McPherson strut front suspension layout has been adopted, with a Torsion Beam design in the rear aiding packaging as well as manufacturing costs. The vehicle is fitted with 16-inch wheels – steel versions on the entry model and alloy for the rest – which in turn are shod with either 205-60-R16 or 215-60-R16 tyres.
Safety & Security
The safety and security specs include ABS and EBD, side protection beams, driver and passenger airbags and ISOFIX. An alarm and immobilser system is also included on all models.
Toyota Connect & MyToyota App
All Urban Cruiser models are also equipped with the Toyota Connect telematics system which includes an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot and complimentary 15Gb data. Once linked to their profile, customers can manage their vehicle via the MyToyota App. This intuitive app allows on-demand service bookings, vehicle information and history, tracking data as well as Toyota Connect data recharge services and much more.
