Introducing the Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor: A Stylish Crossover with Distinctive Flair

Toyota’s latest offering, the Urban Cruiser Taisor, brings a fresh perspective to the crossover segment with its subtle yet striking design cues and a host of modern features. Sharing its foundation with the Suzuki Fronx, the Taisor sets itself apart through meticulous cosmetic enhancements, offering drivers a unique and refined driving experience.

Exterior Elegance

The Taisor boasts a distinct aesthetic identity, with refined touches that elevate its visual appeal. A honeycomb-patterned grille, redesigned bumpers, and sleek LED daytime running lights contribute to its sophisticated front fascia. The taillamps receive subtle tweaks while maintaining the iconic full-width light bar, and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels complete the Taisor’s polished look.

Interior Sophistication

Step inside the Taisor, and you’ll be greeted by a harmonious blend of luxury and functionality. Dual-tone brown and black upholstery sets the tone for a refined cabin experience. The centerpiece of the dashboard is a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, offering wireless connectivity for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additional features include automatic climate control, a 360-degree camera, a head-up display, and a convenient wireless charging pad.

Power and Performance

Under the hood, the Taisor offers two petrol powertrain options to suit varying preferences. Drivers can choose between a naturally aspirated 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine or a punchier turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder unit. The former delivers a respectable 67 kW and 113 Nm of torque, while the turbocharged variant churns out 73 kW and 148 Nm of torque. Both engines are available with manual or automatic transmission options, providing flexibility and responsiveness on the road.

Compact and Capable

With dimensions measuring 3,995 mm in length, a wheelbase of 2,520 mm, and a height of 1,550 mm, the Urban Cruiser Taisor is poised to carve its niche as an entry-level crossover in Toyota SA Motors’ lineup. Positioned below models like the Urban Cruiser and Corolla Cross, the Taisor offers a perfect balance of agility and versatility for urban adventures.

Arriving Soon

While Toyota’s local arm has yet to confirm an official release date, anticipation is high for the arrival of the Taisor on the South African market. With its distinctive design, advanced features, and dynamic performance, the Taisor is set to make a lasting impression on crossover enthusiasts across the country.
