Toyota has announced a new Respect Package for all the buyers who have pre-booked the SUV.

In accordance with the new Respect Package, the users who have pre-booked the new compact SUV will only get to drive the new SUV home first but will also get a 'no-cost periodic maintenance' for up to 2 years.

The company has set up a dedicated web page on the new Toyota SUV which provides some details on the new Toyota Urban Cruiser.

The Urban Cruiser will come with an option for a Li-ion battery with the automatic version. This battery will enhance the car’s fuel efficiency and even provide assistance in torque generation.

The Li-ion battery on the car will provide regenerative braking, idle start/stop, torque assist and overall better fuel efficiency. However, the company has not announced the mileage figures as of now. The mild-hybrid system will provide more options for buyers looking to buy the re-badged version of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza.
