Toyota is gearing up to introduce its all-new mid-size SUV in the Indian market. This Japanese carmaker’s upcoming SUV is internally codenamed ‘D22’ while its official nameplate will be ‘Hyryder’. It will make its global debut in India on July 1, 2022. Now, ahead of the world premiere, Toyota has teased the SUV for the first time ever in an official video.
The teaser video reveals that the upcoming Toyota Hyryder SUV will get a massive front fascia that’s reminiscent of some Lexus models. It will get a new slim-looking grille with a thin strip of chrome, just like the facelifted Glanza, which will be flanked by LED DRLs. The SUV’s all-LED headlamps will be positioned lower on the bumper.
This mid-size SUV will get a hybrid badge on the side fenders, multi-spoke alloy wheels, and body cladding all around with skid plates at the front and rear. While the exact equipment on offer isn’t known yet, one can expect it to be pretty feature-rich. The upcoming Toyota Hyryder is expected to be powered by a 103 bhp 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, paired with a 6-speed MT and AT.
It is also likely to get a 1.5-litre strong hybrid petrol motor, paired with an eCVT that might offer a first-in-segment AWD as well. The Toyota Hyryder and Maruti Suzuki’s upcoming mid-size SUV are being developed collaboratively and they will be manufactured at Toyota’s Bidadi plant in Karnataka. They will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, etc.
