Toyota Hyryder And Hycross Names Trademarked For New Products | V3Cars
Toyota have trademarked the Hyryder and Hycross names for their upcoming products. Toyota’s upcoming compact SUV with a strong hybrid powertrain co-developed with Maruti Suzuki is likely to be called Hyryder. Meanwhile, the next-gen Innova could receive the Hycross suffix. Toyota are expected to launch both the Hyryder and Innova Hycross by the end of 2022.
Toyota Hyryder Strong Hybrid Compact SUV
Earlier, we reported that Toyota are working on a Creta-rivalling SUV in association with Maruti Suzuki. The test mules of both the Toyota and Maruti Suzuki SUVs were spied on our roads multiple times. The spy shots of the Hyryder suggest that the compact SUV gets some design cues from the Yaris Cross. It is likely to feature split headlamps, a chrome grille, LED taillights and dual-tone alloy wheels.

We haven’t seen any interior shots of the Toyota Hyryder yet. However, we expect the cabin layout of the Hyryder to resemble that of Toyota’s global crossovers like the Yaris Cross and Corolla Cross. The Toyota Hyryder will come with a strong hybrid powertrain. However, lower variants could also feature normal petrol engines. The Hyrryder’s hybrid setup is likely to be a smaller version of the Camry Hybrid’s powertrain. The same drivetrain will be used in Maurit Suzuki’s YFG-codenamed counterpart as well.
Toyota Innova Hycross Family Mover
The Toyota Innova is due for a generation change this year. However, reports suggest that Toyota will keep the current-gen Innova Crysta on sale alongside the next-gen Innova. The Hycross suffix should help the brand better distinguish the two models.
The Innova Hycross is expected to be underpinned by a monocoque platform to liberate more space and improve comfort on the inside. Toyota have started testing the Innova Hycross on our shores and multiple spy shots have also surfaced online.

If rumours are true, the Innova Hycross will come with petrol and petrol-hybrid powertrains only. It could feature a strong hybrid powertrain to offer a good blend of performance, operating life and efficiency. Toyota have been testing the Innova Crysta CNG for a long time now and that could be added to the Crysta range for fleet operators very soon.
Both the Toyota Hyryder and Innova Hycross are likely to go on sale later this year. We expect Toyota to launch the Hyryder compact SUV around Diwali whereas the launch of the Innova Hycross could take place a couple of months later.
