A while ago a leaked document revealed that the upcoming Toyota Hyryder SUV features not one but two hybrid powertrains options. This shocked many and the leaked documents reveal that the upcoming SUV can be optioned with either of these powertrain units.

While both these engines are 1.5-litre petrol engines, one of the powertrains is a mild hybrid unit, whereas the other powertrain is a strong hybrid engine.

According to the specifications revealed by the leaked documents, the 1.5-litre mild-hybrid engine puts out a respectable 101.6bhp of peak power. Also, this engine can be specified with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

On the other hand, the 1.5-litre strong hybrid unit produces a bit more peak power at 114.5bhp and comes exclusively mated to an eCVT gearbox. In addition to that, the 1.5-litre strong hybrid engine also comes with an advanced self-charging capability in order to propel the SUV in EV mode for short distances.

Thoughts About Toyota Hyryder SUV

Though both brands co-developed the hybrid SUV, Toyota's version of the hybrid SUV will be launched slightly earlier than Maruti Suzuki's version as expected. This will give Toyota an advantage over the Maruti Suzuki in terms of sales and the launch of the hybrid version of the SUV will not only attract more customers to the Toyota showroom, but it will also improve the brand image and recognition.
