2023 Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG: Design and Features
As far as the design is concerned, Toyota has not changed anything in its Hyryder CNG; it retains the same exterior look as the mild-hybrid petrol version except for the addition of the CNG badge. Moving on to the interior layout, the new CNG model highlights an all-black colour theme with the same steering wheel and switchgear as the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara. However, Toyota Hyryder CNG compromises the storage capacity compared to the petrol version as it gets a 60-litre CNG tank in the boot.
Furthermore, the G trim of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG offers full-LED headlamps, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an engine start/stop button, cruise control, 6 airbags and a reverse camera with parking sensors. In addition, the SUV rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
