2022 Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder SUV India Unveil Today Highlights: After spotting test mules and awaiting teasers, we finally have seen the new Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. This mid-size SUV is set to launch in the coming days but the company has started taking bookings for Rs 25,000.
It gets two 1.5-litre petrol engines, one with a strong hybrid system and the other with a mild-hybrid setup. The strong hybrid iteration of the SUV is capable of running completely on battery and will have the best-in-class mileage figure as well. Since it will be a self-charging vehicle, there is no hassle of worrying about charging times and logistics related to it. It will only come with an eCVT and will miss out AWD capabilities. If you want an SUV with AWD in this segment, you will have to turn your attention toward the Neo Drive variants that produce a peak power of 100bhp and a peak torque of 135Nm. This engine can be had with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

This is going to be another product born out of the partnership between TKM and Maruti Suzuki. As such, we expect to see a version of this vehicle with the Suzuki badge on it, sometime later. The Urban Cruiser Hyryder is going to sit above the current Urban Cruiser and give competition to vehicles like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and more.
The dual-tone cabin of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder gets many features like a wireless charger, 55+ connected features, ventilated front seats and ambient lighting. Even the safety package is rather impressive, thanks to features like an HUD, 3660-degree camera, ASB, EBD, VSC, TPMS and more.
Thank you very much for joining us today. You can find more information on the new Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder on our website.
The other engine choice available with the Urban Cruiser Hyryder is the 1.5-litre K-series petrol engine, which the company calls 'Neo Drive'. This engine gets two transmission options – 5-speed MT & 6-speed AT. A unique aspect of this configuration is that it can be had with an AWD as an option.
The 1.5-litre petrol engine with the strong hybrid system will only be available in 2WD form and get an eCVT. The petrol engine is capable of producing a peak power of 91bhp and 122Nm and is coupled with an electric motor good for 79bhp and 141Nm. The combined power output, however, stands at 114bhp.
The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder will be available in seven monotone and four dual-tone colour options.

Say hello to the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder! It definitely looks muscular and imposing.
The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder boasts of more than 55 connected features including the ability to remotely start the SUV and turn on the air conditioning.
Some other features inside the cabin include a large panoramic sunroof, 9-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, wireless charger, ventilated front seats, head up display and a 360-degree camera.
Here is what the interior of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder looks like. It has a dual-tone colour scheme, soft-touch material on the dashboard and even comes with ambient lighting.
The Urban Cruiser Hyryder will come with stylish 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.
While Toyota has had high-end hybrid vehicles like the Camry and Vellfire, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder will bring this technology to a much more affordable price segment.
Here are some benefits of opting for a hybrid vehicle. They do not require an external source to charge the battery, reduce emissions and also keep the fuel cost in check.
To talk about Toyota's plans toward carbon neutrality and their global goals, Venugopal P B, vice president, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, takes the stage.
Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder will be manufactured in the company's plant in the state of Karnataka and will also be exported to international markets.
After Vikram Kirloskar, Masakazu Yoshimura, MD, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, takes the stage.
Toyota recently allocated an investment of Rs 4,800 crore to facilitate local manufacturing of electrified components at their facility.
TKM has its eyes set on greener mobility and believes that its new self-charging hybrid vehicle will help bring the promise of a greener future come to life.
The event begins with Vikram Kirloskar, Vice Chairman, Toyota Kirloskar Motor taking the stage and welcoming everyone to the event.
The Urban Cruiser Hyryder could potentially be offered with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, making it the first vehicle in the segment to offer this feature. All other SUVs in the segment are FWD. If Toyota does indeed equip the Urban Cruiser Hyryder with AWD, it would greatly improve the handling of the vehicle and give it an edge over the competition.
The official unveil event is about to start shortly. Don't go anywhere as we will be sharing all the important updates here.
The Honda City e:HEV became the most affordable hybrid vehicle in the country when it was recently launched at a starting price of Rs 19.50 lakh (ex-showroom). Now, the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder could take that crown away as it could potentially undercut the sedan.
While the engine might not sound massively impressive on its own, it will be assisted by a hybrid setup. Toyota plans to offer the Urban Cruiser Hyryder with both mild and strong hybrid systems. We suspect that the higher-end models will get the more capable hybrid setup and not only help with increasing the mileage, but also improve the driving experience.
Since Toyota is in making this vehicle in partnership with Maruti Suzuki, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder is most likely going to get the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, naturally-aspirated petrol motor that produces roughly 103bhp of peak power and 136Nm of peak torque.
The horizontally split headlamp design has become more and more common in recent days. The same will also be seen on the Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The top half will have a slim LED DRL and the lower half will contain the LED headlamp. At the back, one can see the slim tail lamp section that looks rather modern.
While Toyota is yet to give us a proper look at the SUV, the teasers shared thus far do show that it is going to have a typical, muscular exterior. At the front is going to be a rather slim grille with a glossy black panel and a thinner chrome strip. A similar chrome strip will be seen on the tailgate.
While Toyota might be taking the covers off the Urban Cruiser Hyryder today, test mules of the vehicle were seen on road since the last few months. Since then, we have come to know more about this new product and how it would be positioned.
This new vehicle from Toyota was internally codenamed D22 and for a while, we suspected that it would just be called Hyryder. However, the full name of the vehicle is going to be Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The name could be inspired by the hybrid powertrains that it comes powered by.
Hello everyone and welcome to the liveblog of the Toyota Urban Cruiser unveil event. We will be sharing new updates regarding the vehicle and covering the event proceedings as they happen.
