There's a new Toyota Urban Cruise in town, and we're here to help you choose the best variant of the newcomer!
The Toyota Urban Cruiser has been a great sales success for the brand, conquering the small crossover segment in its previous guise, while the latest generation has grown up, quite literally, and appears to be a more substantial product. Let’s look at the three available models and determine which is best.
Before we begin the comparison, it is essential to note that there are three Urban Cruiser models to choose from and two specification levels, namely XS and XR, with the latter being available in either manual or automatic guise. All three models share the same 1.5-litre petrol engine with outputs of 77kW and 138Nm, paired with a five-speed or four-speed automatic gearbox.
