Feature Differences

The Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor and Maruti Fronx are similarly packaged offerings in terms of features as well. The top-spec variants of both the subcompact offerings are equipped with a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone charging, cruise control, and a heads-up display. Passenger safety is taken care of by up to six airbags, a 360-degree camera, electronic stability control (ESC) with hill hold, and rear parking sensors. Even the feature distribution for their comparable variants is the same.

Final Takeaways

Despite all these similarities, the Taisor’s 1.2-litre petrol variants command a premium of up to Rs 25,000 over the Fronx variants with the same engine. On the other hand, the Fronx not only offers a more affordable turbo-petrol variant over its Toyota counterpart, but also offers a more feature-rich CNG trim as well.

If there was a factor for the Toyota premium, besides the changes to the exterior styling, it would be the standard warranty coverage. While the Fronx gets a 2-year/ 40,000km warranty as standard, Toyota offers the Taisor with a standard coverage of 3-years/ 1 lakh km as well as complimentary RSA (roadside assistance) for 5 years.
