Toyota is all set to unveil its new self-charging hybrid SUV in India on July 1, 2022. The compact SUV is part of the collaborations in the business partnership between Toyota and Suzuki. Today the company has officially teased the car for the very first time. The compact SUV is expected to be called Hyryder.
In the teaser, Toyota has partially revealed the final design of the Hyryder. On the front, double layers of LED split headlamps neatly merge on the piano-black finished grille. The chrome separator extends from one corner to the other of the grille, dividing the LED daytime running lamps into two layers. The front bumper sports an aggressive styling with a tall air dam surrounded by large full LED headlamps.
The forthcoming SUV is expected to get features like an electric sunroof, a Head-Up Display, ventilated seats, 360-degree camera, a large infotainment touchscreen (likely a 9-inch unit), connected car tech and more.
As we stated before, the Toyota Hyryder will come equipped with mild-hybrid tech supplied by Maruti Suzuki and full-hybrid system from Toyota. Expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre K15C engine that will be mated to either of these hybrid systems, depending on the variant.
The Toyota Hyryder hybrid SUV will also have a Maruti version and both vehicles will be built at Toyota’s Bidadi plant number 2 in Karnataka. Production for both SUVs will start in August. The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder is expected to go on sale first, followed by the Maruti version which will be sold via the it’s Nexa outlets.
