Being just a rebadge, the Urban Cruiser Taisor shares almost all its body panels with the Maruti Fronx, albeit with subtle differences including a redesigned front grille with a honeycomb pattern and slightly restyled front bumpers. The LED DRLs feature a new linear design as opposed to the three cubes seen on the Fronx. The tail lights have also been tweaked, but just like the donor SUV, are connected together with a full-width light bar. The Taisor also gets a new design for the 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Colour options include Cafe White, Enticing Silver, Sportin Red, Lucent Orange, and Gaming Grey. The former three can also be had with a blacked-out roof.
