Toyota has recalled 9,498 units of its Urban Cruiser sub-compact SUV, manufactured between July 28, 2020, and February 11, 2021, over a possible issue with the driver-side airbag module assembly.
The sub-compact SUV was launched on September 23, 2020. That means, all units sold from the start until February 11 have been affected. Owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by the authorised service centres. In case of an issue with the module, it will be replaced completely free of cost.
The Urban Cruiser comes with safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, a rear parking camera, and hill hold control (AT only). Since it is a rebadged version of the Vitara Brezza, it should also carry the 4-star crash test safety rating. However, there’s no word on whether it’s affected by the same issue.
Other features on board include LED projector headlamps, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, driver seat height adjustment, and automatic AC.
