Toyota Taisor vs Maruti Fronx: Exploring the Differences

Toyota has taken the market by surprise with the launch of the Maruti Fronx-based Urban Cruiser Taisor. Along with revealing the model the company also disclosed its features, cost, and estimated delivery date. Here's a detailed comparison between the Taisor and its sibling, the Maruti Fronx.

Design Highlights

Both the Taisor and the Fronx share a similar overall shape, being essentially a rebadged version of each other. However, the Taisor sports the Toyota badge and stacked LED DRLs, differing from the tri-units on the Fronx. The side profile features new wheel designs of the same size allowing for potential wheel swaps between the two models. The rear remains largely the same, except for the badging. The Taisor stands out with a brighter color palette offering both single and dual-tone schemes.

Interior and Features

The cabin and feature list are identical across both cars, with top models boasting a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control with rear vents, HUD, 360-degree camera, LED light package, connected car technology with smartwatch connectivity, height-adjustable driver's seat, powered mirrors and windows, and a sunroof with electric opening. The choice between the two may come down to color scheme preferences and a marginal variant-for-variant price difference.


The Toyota Taisor is available with a 1.2-liter petrol engine producing 88bhp/113Nm and a 1.0-turbo petrol motor delivering 99bhp/148Nm. The 1.2-liter engine comes with a five-speed manual or AMT, while the turbo petrol is paired with a six-speed manual or automatic torque converter.

Fronx vs Taisor Pricing

For the 1.2-liter engine, the Taisor and Fronx have a price difference of up to Rs. 25,000, depending on the variant. The 1.0-liter turbo models have a minimal price difference of Rs. 1,000 between the two.


Both the Urban Cruiser Taisor and the Fronx compete in the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment against the Maruti Brezza, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and the upcoming Mahindra XUV300
