Toyota Hyryder: What a Sport version of this compact SUV would look like

Toyota India launched their first ever mid-size SUV Urban Cruiser Hyryder in the market few months ago. The main attraction of this model is that it is available with both mild and strong hybrid system. It is jointly developed by Maruti and Toyota and both Grand Vitara and Hyryder have a lot in common other than the looks. When compared to Grand Vitara, many feel that the Hyryder looks a bit odd especially the front-end. We have started seeing several video render images and videos that shows minor modifications on the SUV to enhace the overall look. Here we have one such render image where the Hyryder SUV has been slightly modified for a sporty look.

The 3D render image of the Toyota Hyryder has been shared by zephyr_designz on their Instagram profile. The render image shows how minor modifications like this can completely change the overall look of a vehicle. Toyota offers a muscular looking front bumper. The artist took that bumper and redesigned it to achieve a bolder and sportier look. The headlamp is now an all LED unit and it is neatly integrated into the newly designed air vent. The dual-function LED DRLs and the chrome strip running into the front grille has all been retained.

The lower part of the bumper gets blacked out skid plate which is silver in the stock version. The dual-function LED DRLs, the front grille and headlamps all have a black finish to them which is elevating the overall look of the Hyryder. Coming to the side profile, the black cladding around the wheels arches and lower part of the body is all finished in the same colour as rest of the body. Out of Toyota Hyryder and Grand Vitara, Hyryder gets a much more sportier looking dual-tone alloy wheel. In this rendered version, artist decided to replace the stock alloy wheels with aftermarket units.
