Toyota Taisor deliveries to commence from May 2024


  • Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor is offered in five variants and three powertrain options.
Toyota Taisor will share its underpinnings with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor recently expanded its SUV lineup in India with the launch of the Urban Cruiser Taisor. It is the fourth model to come from the partnership between Toyota and Maruti Suzuki. Moreover, it is the most affordable SUV in Toyota’s lineup as the Urban Cruiser has now been discontinued. Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor starts at 7.73 lakh and goes up to 13.03 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom. The company has already opened bookings for a token amount of 11,000.

Earlier, Toyota has already rebadged the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Baleno, Ertiga and Ciaz. Both companies co-developed the mid-size SUVs, the Grand Vitara and the Urban Cruiser Hyryder. Then there is the Maruti Suzuki Invicto which is a rebadged Toyota Innova Hycross. Toyota has made some cosmetic changes to the Taisor so that it is easy to distinguish it from the Fronx. It gets a different set of LED Daytime Running Lamps, alloy wheels and rear tail lamps. The front grille and the bumper are also different so that they match the design language of some of the other Toyota vehicles.

Toyota is offering the Urban Cruiser Taisor with three powertrains. There is a naturally aspirated petrol engine, a turbocharged petrol engine and a CNG powertrain. All engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. The turbocharged engine also gets a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission whereas the naturally aspirated unit gets a 5-speed AGS.
