The Toyota Urban Cruiser is a mini MPV that is currently produced by Japanese automaker Toyota. It was first introduced in 2008 and is still in production. It slots below the Toyota RAV4 to compete against small crossover SUVs like the Nissan Qashqai and Kia Soul, while also attracting buyers of mainstream family hatchbacks. Designed by Toyota ED²,[1] it debuted at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show and went on sale shortly thereafter.

Mechanicals and emissionsEdit

It is powered by a 1,329 cc petrol engine that produces 100 hp (75 kW) and 132 N·m (97 lb·ft), as well as a 90 hp (67 kW), 205 N·m (151 lb·ft) 1,364 cc turbo diesel. Front-wheel drive is standard, but the diesel model is also offered with an all-wheel drive option.


The car received a relatively poor Euro NCAP safety rating of 3/5 stars.[2]
