Should You Buy Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder Mild Hybrid Or Hybrid?

With a km-to-breakeven figure ranging from 1.31 lakh km to 1.57 lakh km, it is hard to recommend the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder hybrid over its mild-hybrid petrol-automatic variants. However, it’s worth noting that the hybrid variants also get some additional features compared to the similar mild-hybrid variants.

Still, the premium for the hybrid powertrain is difficult to justify if you’re only buying it to save money. So, you’ll have to boil it down to your usage. If you mostly drive in the city and in stop-and-go traffic, then the hybrid will offer much better drivability and considerably higher fuel efficiency. This is because the torque converter automatic has poor fuel efficiency in stop-and-go traffic and this is exactly where the hybrid powertrain shines.

If your daily commute involves long and open highway stretches, then we recommend the Urban Cruiser Hyryder mild-hybrid as its 4-cylinder engine will feel smoother than the hybrid variants’ 3-cylinder engine.
