TOYOTA Bahrain has further expanded its vision of creating mobility by launching the redesigned 2023 Urban Cruiser which promises outstanding fuel efficiency, spacious interior and a host of advanced features.
Ebrahim Khalil Kanoo, the exclusive distributor of Toyota vehicles in Bahrain, has announced the launch of the all-new compact SUV which is designed to meet the needs of Toyota’s most discerning customers.
Boasting a sleek, crossover SUV-like design, the five-seater vehicle exudes style and sophistication and features a spacious and roomy cabin with ample space for both passengers and their luggage.
The vehicle owes much of its smooth acceleration and dynamic on-road performance to the new Neo Drive Powertrain, which is the first of its kind in the Toyota line-up.
It features a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder gasoline engine and Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) that functions as both an electrified generator and motor.
Combined with a compact lithium-ion battery, the powertrain delivers 101hp and 135 newton-metres (Nm) of torque, with an average fuel consumption of 19.8 km/l and is paired with six-speed automatic transmission that offers enhanced performance during low-speed and stop-start conditions.
The 2023 Urban Cruiser’s highly-rigid body and suspension, along with a 5.4-metre turning radius for greater manoeuvrability, all contribute to its outstanding handling, stability, and ride comfort.
The vehicle boasts MacPherson strut-type front suspension, ensuring a smooth and secure ride with direct and linear driving dynamics.
The SUV’s exterior is characterised by a unique crystal acrylic upper grille with premium chrome garnish.
A wide, trapezoidal lower grille embodies the vehicle’s toughness, while the side view reveals a distinctive character line that runs from the front to the rear, expressing length and presence that is complemented by 17-inch alloy wheels.
The vehicle’s head-up display, 4.2-inch colour Thin Film Transistor multi-information display, along with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel equipped with audio system and vehicle operation controls, all make for a seamless driving experience.
Other impressive features include a dual-sliding panoramic roof, a 7-inch or 9-inch multimedia screen with seamless Apple CarPlay® and Android AutoTM integration, and a wireless smartphone charging system. Additionally, the interior offers three USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, a powerful automatic air conditioning system with rear AC vents, and 60/40 split reclining rear seats.
As with any Toyota model, the new Urban Cruiser comes complete with a comprehensive array of safety features.
These include six SRS airbags (front airbags for the driver and passenger, side airbags for the front seats, and side-curtain airbags for the front and rear seats), Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, Traction Control, Hill-start Assist Control, Panoramic View Monitor, Rear Parking Sensors, Tyre Pressure Warning System, and many more.
A choice of seven exciting exterior hues adds to the new Urban Cruiser’s striking visual appeal, including pearl white, metallic silver, metallic grey, pearl red, pearl black, brown family colour, and speedy blue. Further personalisation is made possible with the addition of several dual-tone variants.
