The Toyota Urban Cruiser lands in South African showrooms in March 2021. Here's how much you can expect to pay, plus trim levels and specifications for the new model.

Hard on the heels of the recently-launched Suzuki Vitara Brezza comes the Toyota-badged equivalent. It's called the Toyota Urban Cruiser and yes, it looks like the same situation we had with the Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Starlet. While at first glance there are some visual similarities, the Toyota Urban Cruiser does have a slightly different front end.
