Let's take a look at what the new sub-compact SUV has to offer in today's market. Stay tuned for all the live updates from the launch of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder.

As recently confirmed by Toyota and Maruti Suzuki, the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder and its Maruti Suzuki derivative will get a mild-hybrid as well as a strong hybrid powertrain option. The mild-hybrid version has been developed by Suzuki which points to it being the new 1.5-litre K15C seen in the refreshed Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and XL6 as well as in the upcoming Brezza facelift. This motor should put out 105PS and 138 Nm.
Much of the switchgear and tech seems to have been carried over from the newest Maruti Suzukis. The new 9-inch touchscreen that first debuted on the Baleno is also seen here, which means that features like Arkamys audio and a 360-degree camera can be expected. The climate control set-up too is a carry-over from the one in the Baleno with the toggle switches.
The teaser shows that the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder will get quite plush-looking interior trimmings with a dash done up in a brown soft-touch face and contrasting grey and silver elements in a horizontal theme. There's also some gloss black around the air vents and the doors seem to carry a similar design theme with the soft padding.
