Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor Engine Options
The Toyota Urban Cruiser Taisor will offer two engine options for the Indian customers. The first one is a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine that produces 89 hp and 113 Nm of torque.

The 1.2-litre petrol engine is the same one that powers the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, while the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine is similar to the one that is available in the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Dzire. Both these engines are known for their performance and fuel efficiency.
