Suzuki will hold the world premiere of its new recreational vehicle in India in early July. Toyota will also be present at the unveiling: the vehicle will be manufactured by its home plant, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), from August of this year.
Known as the factory codename YFG, the entire model was developed by Suzuki for the same floorboard that also forms the basis of current S-Cross and Vitara crossovers, yet it promises to be completely unique.
Suzuki now offers a mild and full hybrid powertrain for this platform, both of which are from in-house development. Both driving technologies will be available for the newcomer, but with a significant development: the full hybrid will not be an already well-known unit from the European Vita, but an engine provided by Toyota. (The official statement contradicts local reports that both hybrid variants will be developed by Suzuki.)
And why does Toyota give you a driving option? It’s very simple: the model will also be marketed as Toyota, under the name HyRyder. You can watch the video of the latter below.

The statement, issued jointly by the two companies, confirmed that the model will also be available in export markets. Europe was not specifically mentioned, but given that everything is available at the Suzuki plant in Esztergom for the production of the Global C platform, it is not unreasonable to hope that a new crossover will soon be available in Hungary.
Toyota and Suzuki signed a cooperation agreement in 2017. As a result, Suzuki launched Across and Swace, renamed versions of the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid and Toyota Corolla Touring Sports Hybrid.
