    Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor: design highlights

    As expected, the Urban Cruiser Taisor shares almost all its body panels with the Maruti Fronx. A closer look reveals some subtle design differences like a slightly different texture for the front grille, mildly redesigned front and rear bumpers, new alloy wheel design and a few other cosmetic bits.

    On the inside, expect the Urban Cruiser Taisor to get minor shade differences on the interior trim and upholstery to differentiate it from its Maruti cousin. The SUV will come with a 9-inch infotainment screen, 360-degree camera a heads up display and a few other features and creature comforts similar to the ones seen on the Fronx.
