Toyota Hyryder launched in India at INR 15.11 lakh

Toyota has launched its first model for India produced in partnership with Maruti Suzuki–the Hyryder–at a starting price of 15.11 lakh. The urban cruiser comes with one of two petrol drivetrains: a 1.5-litre TNGA engine paired with a Toyota Hybrid System and a 1.5-litre K-series engine with the Neo Drive (ISG), derived from the Maruti Suzuki. 

The new SUV comes in four variants: the E, S, G, and V.


The Hyryder is offered in both monotone and dual-tone colour options. At the front, the SUV comes with two distinguished grilles: the lower one is wide and trapezoidal (similar to that of the Raize); and the upper grille gets the brand logo, with chrome elements, which is extended to the twin LED DRLs. Just below the DRLs, the SUV gets an LED projector headlamp. At the rear, the vehicle gets a thick chrome strip in the middle that is flanked by C-shaped split LED tail lamps. 

The Hyryder’s Neodrive models get an all-black cabin and the Hybrid models come with a dual-tone (black and brown) interior. The five-seater SUV gets a reclining and folding rear seat that extends the vehicle’s boot space. 

On the dashboard is a 4.2 inch TFT colour display for Neodrive variants, while the Hybrid variants get a larger 7-inch display. The SUVs come with either a 7-inch or a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, depending on the variant.

The Hyryder’s self-charging Hybrid model–developed by Toyota–is powered by the 1.5-litre TNGA engine that is equipped with a Toyota Hybrid System (THS). The engine alone can generate a power of 91 hp and a torque of 122 Nm. Furthermore, it is mated to a 59 kW motor that generates a torque of 141 Nm–meaning, the SUV generates a combined power of 115 hp. 

The Neodrive model is based on Maruti Suzuki’s 1.5-litre K-series mild-hybrid engine, which generates a power of 100 hp at 6000 rpm and a torque of 135 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Only the top variant of the Neodrive model will be offered with an all-wheel drive system–mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
