Toyota HyRyder First Batch Arrived At The Dealerships Ahead Of Launch

Toyota collaborated with Maruti Suzuki to develop this hybrid SUV platform, which both manufacturers will sell with their own design and branding on top. Toyota’s big bet in the C-segment SUV space is the HyRyder SUV. It made its global debut last week in India, the launch is scheduled for next month. Ahead of that, the first batch of the new HyRyder SUVs has arrived at dealer showrooms, where customers can inspect the exteriors and experience the SUV’s interiors.

The HyRyder is a stylish SUV inspired by Toyota’s global models, RAV4 in particular. With its large air dam, aggressive front fascia, and Blue colour, the HyRyder appears to be inspired by the RAV4. It has a premium-looking interior, which is typical for the segment. It has a free-standing 9-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other notable features include a heads-up display, wireless charging, ventilated front seats, paddle shifters with automatic transmission, and AWD drive modes.

The Neo Drive receives a mild hybrid setup with only stop/start and regeneration capability, one of two levels of Hybrid powertrain architecture available. The second hybrid architecture is a true high voltage architecture capable of much more than Neo Drive’s mild-hybrid setup. However, as of now, Neo Drive is the only one that offers AWD.
