Toyota's Urban Cruiser Hyryder with two engine variants are slated for launch on August 16, 2022:

1) The 1462 cc MSL smart-hybrid in Toyota Hyryder Neo - sharing the engine used by MSL in face-lifted Ertiga, XL6 and Breeza. This ought to be quite a boring, performance-compromised, FE-focused engine eking out mileage of >20 kmpl; and

2) Toyota TNGA 1497 cc strong hybrid engine which Toyota claims it to be quite a performer yet giving mileage north of 25 kmpl. If priced attractively, it can position itself pretty well.

Besides, the Innova Crysta will be replaced by Hycross - the hybrid version of Crysta (new look and platform) discontinuing the existing Crysta. The diesel powertrain will continue for fleet/cabs.

I am not sure where it will place the new Urban Cruiser (the rebadged new Breeza) given that Hyryder already coming and filling the gap in Neo avatar - expected ORP of Neo 12L-17L and Strong Hybrid around 18L-22L.

With rebadged Baleno selling in 8L-12L range, where will Yaris Cross (hatchback) will be positioned?

Will always be happy to see Toyota producing its own vehicles rather than helping MSL reposition itself as an innovative and safety-focused carmaker.

PS: Existing Urban Cruiser is quite a hit with Toyota - badge matters.

Hybrid in this segment would shine in our city traffic. Hope Toyota makes the move.

I hope they bring it to our shores with it's hybrid powertrain. If priced around the 12-13 lakhs it would definitely generate some good sales figures for Toyota. People would definitely spend an extra lakh or two over a similar sized conventional car due to it's significant efficiency advantage.

I am really hoping Toyota brings it's "original" products like the Yaris hatchback to India rather than continuing to rebadge Maruti products. I am not saying they shouldn' t rebadge products but would seriously love the option of Toyota's original products.

Would love to be proved wrong, but fat chance that the Yaris would be launched here.

The cheapest proper Toyota we may get is the Hycross MPV.

The front looks like Fiat Linea and the rear reminds me about the Liva. But if it is going to provide good family car experience, then it will be a hit. The concern is inflation, it has taken toll on middle class and if price is little steep, it will loose to the competition.

Could this be the Toyota version of the rumoured Baleno coupe cross SUV? Suzuki's test mules have been sighted recently with a similar silhouette albeit riding a little higher.
