We are only a few days away from the reveal of Toyota’s Urban Cruiser Hyryder Reveal and the Japanese carmaker has been on roll teasing the new SUV. The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder is a mid-size SUV that will go up against the Hyundai Creta and others. The SUV has been jointly developed with Maruti Suzuki it is expected to launch in the coming months. Let’s take a look at the interior teaser and features:
What to expect
The interiors of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder borrow a lot of parts from Maruti such as the chrome door handles, the automatic gear knob, automatic climate control unit, and the 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The dashboard features the use of brown leather which gives us a hint at the interior theme. Talking about the infotainment, it will be the same 9-inch Smart Play Pro+ unit that was recently seen in the new Maruti Baleno. The heads-up display and 360-degree camera are also expected to be borrowed from Maruti’s parts bin.

The SUV also features connected car technology with a remote A/C start function. The front fascia of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder features slim LED DRLs which are connected by a thick chrome strip. The chrome strip is further accentuated by a piano black background. The lower half features a large grille that houses the number plate. The LED headlights are placed below the LED DRLs and are surrounded by a black element. There’s also a silver skid plate on the bottom. The side features 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and the SUV is expected to have a healthy ground clearance of more than 180mm. It gets a large ORVM which houses a camera underneath and the front fender gets a Hybrid badge too.
The rear gets split LED taillamps which mimic the design of the LED DRLs up front. The crossover is rumored to have two petrol powertrains. The entry-level engine will feature mild-hybrid tech whereas the more expensive variants will get a strong hybrid self-charging powertrain. The engine is likely to be a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated unit which is found in other Toyotas abroad and the strong hybrid tech will help in boosting the fuel economy above 20 km/l. Transmission options will include a manual and an automatic with paddle shifters.
