The similarity appears to continue over to the indicator-mounted side mirrors and the LED tail lights and a stop light-mounted roof spoiler. Even the alloys on the 16-inch wheels appear identical.

On the inside, the similarities only become stronger as the brochure shows a basic but clean dash profile with an integrated infotainment screen. The Urban Cruiser, however, gets dual-tone dark brown hues - something that the company had already confirmed. Storage options seem adequate while there is also a foldable armrest for passengers at the rear.

The brochure however confirms that the car will be offered in six monotone and three dual-tone colour options.
