Toyota launches Hyryder CNG at Rs 13.23 lakh
Hyryder CNG costs Rs 95,000 more than the petrol counterpart.
Toyota has launched the Hyryder CNG in India, with prices starting from Rs 13.23 lakh and going up to Rs 15.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The brand already opened bookings for the Hyryder CNG back in November 2022, at a token amount of Rs 25,000. Compared to its equivalent petrol-powered version, the Hyryder CNG costs Rs 95,000 more. The Hyryder is just the second midsize SUV after the Maruti Grand Vitara to be equipped with a factory-fitted CNG kit.
The mild-hybrid petrol Hyryder is offered in E, S, G and V trims. The Hyryder CNG, meanwhile, will only be offered in S and G trims. Here’s a table showcasing the price comparison between the standard Hyryder and its CNG version.
The Hyryder CNG uses the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, K12C engine as the Ertiga and XL6 CNG. In petrol mode, the engine delivers 103hp and 136Nm, but in CNG-spec, the output drops to 88hp and 121.5Nm. As is the case with most CNG models, the Hyryder CNG is only available with a 5-speed manual transmission and Toyota claims the midsize SUV can deliver a fuel economy figure of 26.6km/kg.
Design and features
The Hyryder CNG retains the overall exterior design of its mild-hybrid petrol version, apart from the addition of the CNG badging. On the inside, the Hyryder CNG gets an all-black interior with the same switchgear and steering wheel from its Maruti counterpart, the Grand Vitara. However, as Toyota has installed the 60-litre CNG tank in the boot of the SUV, it has compromised the storage capacity compared to its petrol counterpart.
In its G trim, the Hyryder CNG gets equipment like full-LED headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 9.0-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car tech, engine start/stop button, six airbags, cruise control and a reversing camera with parking sensors.
The Hyryder CNG will squarely compete with the Grand Vitara CNG and also rivals other midsize SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Nissan Kicks, Skoda Kushaq, and the Volkswagen Taigun, which currently do not have a CNG option
