  • 17-Inch Wheels With Mild-Hybrid Petrol May Affect Performance

    The Urban Cruiser Hyryder comes with 17-inch wheels as standard across all variants, with both mild-hybrid and strong hybrid powertrain options.

  • No Diesel, Turbo Petrol Or 6-Speed Manual Transmission Option

However, the rivals of the Hyryder offer more powerful turbo petrol engines for enthusiasts whereas the Hyryder comes with normal petrol engines. In addition to that, the mild-hybrid powertrain of the Hyryder comes with a 5-speed manual transmission whereas its rivals offer 6-speed manual transmission.
