Japanese automaker Toyota has announced its second price increase of the year for the Urban Cruiser Hyryder in India. The strong-hybrid SUV model now starts at Rs. 10.73 lahks for the base E Neo Drive variant, reflecting a Rs 60,000 increase over the previous price. It’s believed that the price hike is in response to the rising input costs that have impacted the auto industry globally.
