Suzuki Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyrider

Toyota’s latest vehicle, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, was introduced in India a few days ago, and its design is somewhat reminiscent of Suzuki RVs. Of course, this is not a coincidence, as Vezess also mentioned that the two Japanese brands Signed a cooperation agreement back in 2017.


In our recently published article, the picture isn’t complete yet, but at Friday’s presentation of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, it was revealed that the model, Toyota’s largest urban SUV to date, will be launched with several hybrid engines. Both are based on a Suzuki 1.5-liter gasoline engine, as well as a 12-volt starter system, and are equipped with a 6-Ah lithium-ion battery – their combined output is 101 hp, while the maximum torque is 135 Nm. Power is sent to the front axle via a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission.

The model is also offered with Toyota’s self-charging hybrid solution, where the technology – recognizable by the distinctive Hybrid badge – promises a more powerful electric motor and a larger battery. The 1.5-liter engine is also the norm, but the Toyota Hybrid engine – it is in Europe, for example yrs and the Yars Cross Also used for – it can deliver 116 hp and 141 Nm of torque, while the transmission is handled by the e-Drive gearbox. The Toyota City brand insists the Urban Cruiser Hyryder will be the most efficient in its class, and that the electric motor will do most of the work in the city.

The front part of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder is decorated mostly in chrome with slim LED lights, while the headlights are located in the lower part of the bumper, next to the central entrance – according to Toyota protocol.
