While both are nearly the same inside-out, which of these two SUVs should you consider buying? Find out here

Toyota has launched the Urban Cruiser at a starting price of Rs 8.40 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is basically a rebadged version of the Maruti Vitara Brezza which received its mid-life update in early 2020. But how do the two SUVs differ from each other and which one should you go for? Read on to find out.

Before diving into the details, let’s take a look at the dimensions:

As expected, both SUVs are identical in all parameters. 

Now let’s talk about engines. The story is similar here as well since both SUVs are petrol-only offerings. They are powered by the same 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine mated to either a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
