Toyota and Maruti Suzuki jointly develop a new midsize SUV for the Indian market. Both carmakers will launch said SUV under their respective brands, with a few visual changes to distinguish the two versions. Toyota’s version is set to be unveiled on July 1, and we’re extremely excited!
Here, we have listed the top seven features of the Toyota Hyryder that will be available soon.
- Hybrid powertrain
Toyota Hyryder is expected to have a 1.5L petrol engine with a self-charging hybrid system that could generate 116 horsepower. It will come mated to an e-CVT, which sends power to the front wheels. This will likely be the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the segment.
- Mild-Hybrid with All-Wheel Drive
There will be a second powertrain option here – a 1.5-litre petrol engine, with a mild-hybrid system. Both manual and automatic transmission choices will be available with this one, and buyers would also be able to opt for an AWD option!
- Head-Up Display
Toyota will also offer HUD (Head-Up Display) on its new midsize SUV. This will be an extremely practical feature, helping the drivers check out info without taking their eyes off the road.
- Panoramic sunroof
The lack of sunroof on popular Toyota SUVs like Urban Cruiser and Fortuner has invited a lot of criticism, from buyers and critics alike. However, Hyryder will get one, and that too a panoramic sunroof!
- Connected car tech
In the midsize SUV segment, almost every competitor has connected car technology. Toyota will also offer a connected system on its upcoming Hyryder. This will likely be Toyota i-Connect tech, similar to the new Glanza. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity will be offered as well.
- 360-degree camera
A lot of times, we are forced to park our cars in extremely tight spots. The availability of 360-degree parking camera will help this upcoming Toyota SUV be extremely easy to park.
- Ventilated seats
The Toyota Hyryder comes with ventilated front seats to make the occupants comfortable in the heat of India’s summers. The SUV will also come with an automatic climate control system.
