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.

Last week, Toyota revealed the interior looks of its upcoming SUV. The Urban Cruiser sports premium looking dual-tone dark brown interiors. It gets the same wide and spacious cabin layout that's inspired from its donor model.
