Toyota’s compact SUV : Japan’s popular automobile company is in discussion about its brand new mid size SUV. The curtain will be lifted from this SUV at the beginning of next month i.e. on July 1. Although the company has not given the name of this SUV nor has much details about the features of this vehicle, but according to some reports, the name of this new vehicle is going to be Toyota Hyryder. According to some media reports, this new Toyota compact SUV will get a 1.5 liter petrol engine. Apart from this, mild and strong hybrid technology will also be seen in this vehicle.
The version with mild hybrid technology will get manual and automatic gearbox options but the version with strong hybrid technology will get an e-CVT unit. Let us tell you that the e-CVT unit was recently also seen in Honda City Hybrid. It has also been said in this report that this vehicle from Toyota will be the first car in this segment in which All Wheel Drive System (AWD) is being offered.
