    The Hyryder will also get a mild-hybrid powertrain from Maruti Suzuki. It features the 1.5-litre K15C engine, which is also found on models like the new Brezza, XL6 and the Ertiga. Dubbed as ‘Neo Drive’, the motor makes 103hp and 137Nm of torque, and is paired either to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.

    The mild-hybrid engine paired to the 5-speed manual gets AWD as an option. While not the first midsize SUV to offer AWD (the now discontinued Renault Duster had an option of AWD for a while), it is currently the only SUV in its class to offer AWD.

    This car cannot be charged via an electric socket. What a letdown. If the batteries can be charged, then the engine will get used only when the charge is low. This is not the case in this vehicle. It is only making the powertrain more complex. This means an ICE, a battery, and a motor which will result in more maintenance. What is the advantage of it for the buyer? A cleaner engine should also mean at least something for the person paying for it!
