Though Toyota is offering a long list of features, safety features have not taken any hit in a pursuit to price the model competitively, and the CNG SUV still comes equipped with safety features such as 6-airbags, reverse parking camera, ISOFIX anchoring points, ABS with EBD, vehicle stability control (VSC), Hill Hold control, reverse parking sensors, and many more.

We expect Toyota to price the Urban Cruiser Hyryder E-CNG SUVs competitively at around Rs 1 lakh more than the respective petrol-powered variants of the SUV.
