Toyota Urban Cruiser HyRyder with 20-inch wheels looks smashing [Video]

With the new Urban Cruiser Hyryder in its arsenal, Toyota is hoping to see its numbers going up in the Indian car market. The new midsize SUV from Toyota has flown up with a positive start in India, with many buyers opting for it backed by Toyota’s reputation of offering quality and reliable products. The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder has also started hitting the aftermarket accessory shops in India, with buyers opting for different accessories to make their SUVs look different from others. Here is an Urban Cruiser Hyryder with massive 20-inch alloy wheels.

In a YouTube video from Mihir Galat, the presenter of the video introduces his viewers to a man named Harshdeep from New Delhi, who has installed 20-inch alloy wheels in his Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder. The alloy wheels look completely inspired by those of the much larger and more expensive Mercedes-Benz SUVs like GLE and GLS and also get Mercedes-Benz-like centre caps. These alloy wheels have come in as a replacement for the 17-inch steel wheels of the S Neodrive variant of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder owned by Harshdeep.

With these new larger machined alloy wheels, the overall stance of this Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder has become more aggressive and taller. These alloy wheels in the SUV can be seen equipped with lower-profile tyres. According to Harshdeep, the owner of this Urban Cruiser Hyryder, the total cost of the installation of all four alloy wheels and low-profile tyres has come to around Rs 1.5 lakh.

While the overall stance of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder with these new alloy wheels has become much better than the stock version, one must be aware of the negatives, which the owner has also mentioned in the video. The ride quality of an SUV becomes stiffer with larger alloy wheels and lower profile tyres, while the high-speed driving dynamics also take a hit. Even the standard warranty offered by the carmaker is affected by after-market components like alloy wheels, as Harshdeep also agrees that the warranty offered on the suspension of his SUV is now defunct due to the installation of these aftermarket alloy wheels.

The S Neodrive variant of the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder seen here comes equipped with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine. Available with both 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox options, this engine produces 103 PS of maximum power and 136 Nm of maximum torque. However, the version seen in the video gets the manual gearbox. This variant is generously equipped with features like a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a push start-stop button, automatic climate control and steering-mounted audio, Bluetooth and cruise control switches.
