Following the commencement of the deliveries of its distant cousin, the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder has also started rolling out of Toyota dealerships across the country. The first mass delivery of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder took place in Sharayu Toyota, the authorized dealership of Toyota in Pune. Around five units of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder were delivered to their respective customers with mild fireworks and celebrations outside the showroom.
The visuals of the delivery ceremony are shown in a YouTube video uploaded by Car Jigyasu. In the video, we can see the owners entering the showroom with their family members for taking the delivery of their Urban Cruiser Hyryders. It is then followed by the assembling of showroom staff, customers and their family members outside the showroom, where all the Urban Cruiser Hyryders are parked alongside each other.
The delivery ceremony begins with the customers assembling for a photo ceremony, followed by them driving off their SUVs out of the showroom premises. The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder delivered to the customers looks like a mix of all the variants, however, it looks like the top-spec V Hybrid was the most picked one. The colours seen being delivered to the customers include Sporting Red, Cave Black and Midnight Black.
