  • Gets a segment-first self-charging strong hybrid 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine. 

  • The engine is tuned to deliver a combined power output of 116PS and is paired to an e-CVT unit (single-speed transmission). 

  • The only other, more powerful mass-market strong-hybrid car is the Honda City, which claims to deliver 26.5kmpl. 

  • The Toyota compact SUV also gets a 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, with a segment-exclusive (and optional) AWD (all-wheel-drive). 

Toyota has revealed the Urban Cruiser Hyryder compact SUV co-developed with Suzuki for India. It’s the first car in its segment to get an optional self-charging strong-hybrid petrol engine, with the Brezza and XL6’s mild-hybrid petrol as well. 

The Urban Cruiser Hyryder gets a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor, combined to deliver an output of 116PS. It’s offered with an e-CVT (single-speed transmission) and front-wheel drive as standard. The Hyryder gets a pure EV mode as well, where Toyota claims you can drive 40 percent of the distance or 60 percent of the time in zero-emission mode.

With the strong-hybrid technology in play, Toyota is claiming that the Urban Cruiser Hyryder will offer around 26-28kmpl on an average. The ARAI-claimed figures are yet to be revealed, which should be out very soon. For reference, there’s only one other mass-market hybrid option in India - the Honda City hybrid. The sedan also gets a 1.5-litre self-charging strong-hybrid petrol engine, with a combined output of 126PS and a claimed fuel economy of 26.5kmpl. If Toyota’s claims are around 26-28kmpl, then the ARAI-claimed figures are likely to be higher than the sedan. 

The Urban Cruiser Hyryder also gets a 103PS 1.5-litre mild-hybrid petrol engine, which has been borrowed from the updated versions of the Brezza, XL6, and Ertiga. The mild-hybrid manual variants can be opted with an AWD (all-wheel drive) drivetrain, which is a big advantage and another segment-exclusive highlight.
