As per dealer sources, the new sub-compact SUV will launch in India in the third week of September. The Fortuner maker has also commenced official bookings on the new Urban Cruiser.
When launched, the Urban Cruiser will be placed in a similar range as the Vitara Brezza SUV, but the final pricing could be slightly higher in comparison to its donor model. It is going to be the TKM's second spin-off of a Maruti car after the Baleno hatchback which is sold as Glanza in India.
