The Hyryder’s headlamp cluster will be placed below the daytime running LEDs. The DRLs are pretty sleek and are placed high on the front fascia. Toyota also highlighted the ‘Hybrid’ badge under the ORVMs.

At the back there is a thick chrome bar, running horizontally from one end to the other. The tail lamps form inverted Cs on the back and are neatly tucked on the tailgate.

Maruti Suzuki and Toyota announced that they will be introducing the next car under their partnership in India. This will be the third duo after Baleno-Glanza and Brezza-Urban Cruiser. However, this new model will be developed at Toyota’s plant in Bidadi. The production for the same will begin in August.

The companies will be playing big on the Hybrid part. The SUV is expected to be launched in two Hybrid variants. The cheaper variants will get the mild-hybrid setup from Maruti Suzuki, whereas the top variants with get Toyota’s complete Hybrid setup. The hybrid offering is expected to give buyers an incentive to shift focus from SUVs like Creta, Seltos, and Harrier. We can expect more details about the car before it is revealed.
