Toyota has initiated bookings for its upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza based Urban Cruiser sub-compact SUV in India. As per dealer sources, prices of the new SUV will be announced in the third week of September. Sources also suggest that it will be priced in a similar range as the Brezza, but will be slightly expensive in comparison.

The Urban Cruiser sub-compact SUV will be Toyota's second spin-off of a Maruti car, the first one being the Baleno hatchback which is sold as the Glanza in the Indian market. And as expected, Toyota manages to sell a significant number of Glanza premium hatchbacks that has led the Japanese automaker to establish a stronger presence in the more affordable car segment, unlike before.
