Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor – Rebadged Fronx with Few Changes

Being a rebadge, the Urban Cruiser Taisor borrows most of its body panels from the Fronx, although there are some minor differences in Taisor which include a redesigned grille with a honeycomb pattern, revised front bumpers and Redesigned LED DRLs which are linear now compared to the 3 cubes on the Fronx. Apart from this, the tail lights have also been revised but they are connected together with a full-width light bar similar to the Fronx. The Taisor also gets newly designed 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

Colour options of the Taisor – Enticing Silver, Cafe Silver, Sportin Red, Lucent Orange, and Gaming Grey. The first 3 options are available with a blacked-out roof.
