About to begin production in Toyota’s Karnataka plant along with Maruti Suzuki’s new SUV, the bookings for the Urban Cruiser Hyryder will begin next month. With the teaser video reveal, here’s what you can expect from the new Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder.
Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Reveal: All we know
The teaser video hints at a Glanza-like grille, with the double-layered LED headlamps seamlessly merging into it. The LED DRLs are separated by a thick chrome bar in between.
The video also reveals a ‘Hybrid’ badge studded below the wing mirror, all but confirming a full-hybrid powertrain option. The higher variants will have a 360-degree camera as well.
A partial glimpse of the rear shows wraparound tail lamps and dual inverted C-shape LED light guides joined by a chrome strip.
When it comes to the engine, the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder will come with a 1.5-litre petrol engine with 103 PS mild-hybrid and 116 PS strong-hybrid powertrains. The mild-hybrid will have the option of a 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox, while the full-hybrid is set to get an e-CVT gearbox.
The colour variants for the new Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder remain a mystery still, apart from the ‘Nebula Blue’ shade revealed in the teaser video. The production of the Hyryder is set to begin next month at Toyota’s Bidadi plant 2 in Karnataka. Expected to be priced around Rs. 10.5 lakh, the new Urban Cruiser Hyryder will lock horns with Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, and Skoda Kushaq.
