How would you rate it in comparison to Kushaq 1.0 AT?
Kasha's 1.0L is more engaging, powerful & sounds better too. The A/T (Torque Converter) is more responsive than the CVT of the HyRyder.

However in City I would drive the HyRyder over the Kushaq for its better driving position, features, Hybrid / EV Mode refinement, ride comfort, street cred & FE.

Hyryder AC Performance;

Yesterday was probably the hottest day in Mumbai for April over the last 10 years, with temperatures touching 40 deg. C & thanks to humidity the “actual feels” were almost touching 45 Deg C.

In the meantime the A/C of the Hyryder was performing very well, leaving all the speculation of the thin sun shade affecting AC performance to rest;

My pick would be the HyRyder for sure as its a fresh car v/s Honda being well past its half way life cycle. Also I prefer the looks of the HyRyder. Finally Toyota as a brand is more stronger than Honda.

All the best

I would recommend the Hyryder for sure. Sedan's are on the way out and Honda doesn't seem to promote their Hybrid tech, else they would have given it on their Elevate SUV. I don't see much of a future for Honda.

The biggest advantage that I feel about the Honda is it's smooth 4 cyl engine and the continuous EV drive. This makes for a quieter and smoother drive as compared to Hyryder. This is one definite negative for me.

ADAS is another feature which is missing on the Hyryder and I wish, they had given this as an option. They should have at least provided the lane change camera with the indicator.

Another miss for me on the Hyryder is the EPB/Auto Hold. Should have been provided instead of the useless EV drive and mode buttons. The default ECO mode is the best way to drive this car.

I would have preferred an option without sunroof as it does warm up in summer and the thin curtain isn't ideal for Indian weather.
