Al-Futtaim Toyota continues its run as the SUV category leader with the latest new entrant, the compact crossover Toyota Urban Cruiser. The sleek model brings a new edge to the Toyota lineup, featuring the innovative Neo Drive technology to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency.
The 2023 Toyota Urban Cruiser has been engineered with the ever-changing needs and preferences of the company’s global consumer base in mind. Boasting a sleek, crossover SUV-like design, the five-seater vehicle exudes style and sophistication.
It features a spacious, roomy cabin with ample passenger and luggage space. Whether travelling solo or as a group, the new Urban Cruiser promises a comfortable and convenient ride that caters to the requirements of today’s active lifestyles.
The vehicle owes much of its smooth acceleration and dynamic on-road performance to the new Neo Drive Powertrain, the first in the Toyota lineup. It features a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder gasoline engine and Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) that function as an electrified generator and motor.
Combined with a compact Lithium-Ion battery, the powertrain delivers 102 hp and 138 Nm of torque. It is paired with the six-speed automatic transmission, offering enhanced performance during low-speed and stop-start conditions. This ensures customers benefit from reduced emissions and lower operating costs thanks to the exceptional fuel efficiency of 19.8 km/l.
The 2023 Urban Cruiser’s highly rigid body, suspension, and 5.4-meter turning radius for more excellent manoeuvrability contribute to its outstanding handling, stability, and ride comfort. The vehicle boasts MacPherson strut-type front suspension, ensuring a smooth and secure ride with direct and linear driving dynamics. Meanwhile, the back is fitted with a torsion beam suspension system, which provides excellent stability even when cruising at high speeds or taking sharp turns.
A unique crystal acrylic upper grille with premium chrome garnish characterizes the compact five-seat er’s striking exterior. The resulting modern, refined appearance is further enhanced by a wide lateral bar that flows from each DRL and crosses through the Toyota emblem. A wide, trapezoidal lower grille embodies the vehicle’s toughness.
At the same time, the side view reveals a distinctive character line that runs from the front to the rear, expressing length and presence that is complemented by 17-inch alloy wheels. A chrome garnish connects the two combination lamps at the back to create an advanced impression.
The new Urban Cruiser’s spacious cabin is designed for greater comfort and convenience. An outstanding field of view also immensely enhances the driver and passenger experience. Its wide instrument panel, with soft padding throughout the interior, exudes refined elegance.
The vehicle’s head-up display, 4.2-inch colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) multi-information display, and a tilt and telescopic steering wheel equipped with an audio system and vehicle operation controls make for a seamless driving experience no matter where the road takes you.
Other impressive features include a 7-inch- or 9-inch multimedia screen with seamless Apple CarPlay®, Android AutoTM integration, and a wireless smartphone charging system. Additionally, the interior offers three USB ports, a four-speaker sound system, a powerful rear AC vent, and 60/40 split reclining rear seats.
Like any Toyota model, the new Urban Cruiser has many safety features. These include six SRS airbags (front airbags for the driver and passenger, side airbags for the front seats, and side-curtain airbags for the front and rear seats), 3-point ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) Seatbelts for all occupants, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), Panoramic View Monitor (PVM), Rear Parking Sensors, Tire Pressure Warning System (TPWS), and many more.
A choice of seven exciting exterior hues adds to the new Urban Cruiser’s striking visual appeal, including Pearl White, Metallic Silver, Metallic Grey, Pearl Red, Pearl Black, Brown Family Color, and Speedy Blue. Further personalization is made possible with the addition of several dual-tone variants – Pearl Black can be combined with Pearl White, Metallic Silver, Pearl Red or Speedy Blue.
The vehicle’s interior features a stylish colour scheme, with mono-tone Black and dual-tone Black and Bordeaux options. The new Toyota Urban Cruiser also comes with 17-inch wheels, further adding to its luxurious look.
