How does the Urban Cruiser fare against its rivals in the hotly contested sub-compact SUV segment?

The Toyota sub-4m SUV has been a long time coming since it was announced that it will be based on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza as part of their alliance. It has now been launched as the Urban Cruiser with the same feature set as its donor car and the same powertrain - a 1.5-litre petrol engine with choice of 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions. The Urban Cruiser does get a tweaked front fascia and different cabin theme to differentiate it from the Vitara Brezza. It will be taking on the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport.
