Previous models such as Baleno, Glanza and Vitara Brezza, Urban Cruiser were simple badge-swap jobs, this time around there are several things that distinguish the Grand Vitara from the Hyryder.
Talking about the design differences first, the Grand Vitara and the Hyryder can be differentiated via the front grille and headlights. The Hyryder gets the new Toyota grille – a thin opening and a big Toyota badge in the centre similar to the Camry.
The Grand Vitara gets a wider grille in gloss black accents. The LED daytime running lights (DRLs) are designed differently too. The Grand Vitara gets 3 pod LED DRLs similar to Baleno. The Hyryder sports twin LED strips separated by a chrome stripe connected to the grille.
Moving on to the back, both SUVs get slim tail-lights but the Grand Vitara’s tail-lights are separated by light bar and the Hyryder’s are separated by a chrome strip. The Hyryder gets twin C-shaped LED lights whereas the Grand Vitara has 3-block design that is similar to the DRLs at the front.
The interior of both of these SUVs look much similar. The only difference is the colour schemes for the interior. Both get the same steering wheel design with different logos. The AC controls, vents and power window switches, drive mode selector and many more small elements are the same.
Both have same dimensions?
The dimensions of these two SUVs vary slightly, although the wheelbase and the width of the vehicles are identical. The Grand Vitara is slightly taller than the Hyryder, while the Hyryder is slightly longer.
|Dimensions||Grand Vitara||Urban Crusier Hyryder|
|Length||4345 mm||4365 mm|
|Height||1645 mm||1635 mm|
|Wheelbase||2600 mm||2600 mm|
|Fuel tank capacity||45 litres||45 litres|
Talking about the variants, the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder gets E, S, G, V trims for the mild hybrid powertrain. With the strong hybrid powertrain, the Hyryder is only available in the S, G, and V trims.
On the other hand, the Grand Vitara gets six variants – Sigma, Delta, Zeta, Alpha, Zeta Plus and Alpha Plus. The first four are available with a mild hybrid powertrain, while the remaining ones are part of the strong hybrid powertrain.
Both SUVs get a 9-inch Smart Pro Play Plus touchscreen infotainment system with connected car tech, panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera on the higher variants, wireless charging, ambient lighting, full digital instrument cluster (only on strong hybrids), automatic climate control, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, and drive mode selector on the AWD version.
The Grand Vitara and the Hyryder share the same Engine and gearbox options. Both hybrid SUVs are offered with two engine options – a mild hybrid option and a strong hybrid. The mild hybrid is the Maruti Suzuki’s 1.5 L four-cylinder NA K15C with Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) which produces 103hp and 135 Nm of torque. It is paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The strong hybrid is Toyota’s 1.5 L NW three-cylinder TNGA Atkinson Cycle engine mated to a 177.6V lithium-ion battery. Combined, it makes 115hp and is mated to Toyota’s e-CVT transmission. All-wheel drive is also offered, but only with the mild hybrid powertrain.
Same warranty period for both SUVs?
Talking about the warranty, Toyota is offering a 3 year/1,00,000km warranty on the Urban Cruiser Hyryder and the warranty can be extended to a 5 year/2,20,000km.
The battery on the strong hybrid Hyryder is offered with an 8 year/1,60,000km warranty.
The Warranty and price details have not been announced from Maruti yet.
