Key Specifications of Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Hybrid
Brakes, Steering, Suspension, and Types
The global collaboration between Toyota and Suzuki to share technologies and models has resulted in the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder and Maruti Grand Vitara. Toyota, a leader in hybrid technology, and Maruti, a master of financial engineering, jointly created these midsize SUVs. They compete with Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, and MG Astor.
This article focuses on the Urban Cruiser Hyryder, whose hybrid powertrain is a hot topic among customers thanks to its impressive fuel economy rating. It also receives a mild-hybrid engine with manual and automatic transmissions and an all-wheel drive model to appeal to a broader audience.
Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Design
Compact SUV purchasers passionately desire that their new car resemble an SUV. They will, therefore, truly enjoy the Hyryder's generous proportions. The car has a beautiful, current appearance and is relatively modern. Let's also address the subject of the Hyryder's similarities to the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara because it has been brought up a lot. Yes, some body parts, especially the side profile, will make you think of that vehicle, but the best part of the face is how the headlight and the narrow DRLs, typical of Toyota's design, are displayed. Even the front wheel's construction makes it clear; it resembles the SUV style used on all Toyota models worldwide. All Toyota models include the hybrid logo along the side, and the two-tone roof, particularly in the fast blue hue, looks excellent. Only 4 of Hyryder's seven body colors will offer the dual-tone option.
Although some body panels will make you think of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, the face is where the usual Toyota design aesthetic is most apparent.
Split LED tail lamps, which are sleek and complement the car's overall style, are at the back of the vehicle. The position is also sound. The SUV is 4365 millimeters long, and the small front and rear overhangs nicely complement the body's proportions. The Seltos, Creta, Kushaq, and even the Taigun have longer wheelbases than the 2600 mm of the Taigun. The wheelbase of Hyryder, at 2600 mm, is shorter than those of Seltos, Creta, and even the Kushaq and Taigun.
Energy conservation is yet another benefit of having a hybrid powertrain. Using this unique hybrid gearbox, you may switch between the D or drive mode and the B mode. Essentially, the engine starts running solely to allow more energy to be recovered and transferred to the battery. So, in a way similar to single-pedal driving, the engine serves as the brake. The good news is that there is still much regeneration, even in D mode, which is how the battery self-charges.
Is it a Good Buy?
The hybrid models are significantly less expensive than the City e: HEV sedan (Rs 19.89 lakh) at Rs 15.11 lakh (S 2WD), Rs 17.49 lakh (G 2WD), and Rs 18.99 lakh (V 2WD). The Urban Cruiser Hyryder is now India's cheapest and most fuel-efficient hybrid vehicle. It is also roomy and surprisingly strong (mainly when the wheels are driven by an electric and a gasoline engine simultaneously).
Thanks to all these characteristics, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder hybrid is the most significant purchase in the Rs 10-20 lakh class. It is only lacking an all-wheel drive system, but most SUVs are driven on roads rather than off of them, so that feature is rarely needed.
