Urbania Key Highlights

Urbania is India’s first fully ground-up, next-generation modular monocoque panel van platform. With that, the van gets a host of first-in-the-segment features. This includes compliance with crash, rollover, and pedestrian safety regulations with driver and co-driver airbags. It also gets an independent front suspension with transverse springs for a best-in-class passenger ride and handling characteristics. This is the first time that we see Day running DRLs, Projector Headlamps, and signature tail lamps using light guide technology. Urbania is also the first in the segment to offer an ergonomically designed cockpit with a car-like steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustable steering column. All-wheel disc brakes with ESP, ABS, EBD, and ETDC are also the first in the segment features.
