Toyota is gearing to launch the upcoming 2022 Toyota HyRyder in India on July 1. While the SUV has been allegedly spotted previously to prove its existence, it has been now officially teased to arrive with all-wheel drive (AWD) automatic gearbox integration and hybrid architecture.

From the latest teaser released by Toyota, it is clear that the upcoming HyRyder AWD appears to borrow the design language from the global RAV4 which has been a success in the C Segment SUV.
The blue paintwork of the 2022 HyRyder looks more like the RAV4 along with featuring angular LED DRLs with three-section and a large geometrical air dam. The teaser video proudly touts the rear disc brake of the SUV. It will come with fog lamps, black front grilles, and alloy wheels.
The interior of the HyRyder has been shown with a head-up touchscreen display supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features will include a sunroof, an advanced driver seat, and automatic climate control.
With the announcement of the AWD system, the HyRyder is confirmed to be the first such SUV in the segment among its rivals like Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Skoda Kushaq. Also, the HyRyder nomenclature strongly hints the SUV be a hybrid vehicle and now, it is revealed to arrive in two powertrain options.
The high-end model will get a powerful self-charging hybrid electric combination while the lower model will offer the same but with a few limitations. Though, both the variants will be powered by a 1.5L K15 petrol mill.
To stand in a strong competition, Toyota is likely to bring the 2022 HyRyder tagged with aggressive pricing and could start at Rs 10 lakh ex-showroom. While the top AWD Automatic model can be costlier.
