The Toyota Urban Cruiser HyRyder is the Hyundai Creta-rivalling mid-size SUV that comes with hybrid petrol engines for high fuel economy.
Here is a compelling Toyota HyRyder Sports concept that makes the relatively regular SUV look imposing and menacing. Toyota has developed the HyRyder to compete in the highly lucrative and popular mid-size SUV segment. In recent times, almost all the major automobile manufacturers in the country have tried to have a bite of the pie in this constantly expanding segment. That is the reason why digital automobile artists have also started coming up with their iterations of the SUV.

This stunning rendition has been created by zephyr_designz and shared on Instagram. The most attractive modification in this digital rendition comes at the expense of the front bumper. The massive glossy black bumper with similar elements on the sides accentuates the sportiness significantly. In addition to that, the sleek chrome belt connecting the LED DRLs at the front highlight the modern design philosophy with a neat and understated pattern.

This digital illustration has been well thought-out with a dual-tone exterior theme. The red colour is complemented by the black roof really well. Apart from that, the chunky multi-spoke alloy wheels are also painted black to retain that sportiness. The side pillars are blacked-out and the wheel arches are almost squarish making them look more prominent. Finally, the integrated roof rails also add to the overall SUV stance of the HyRyder. What are your thoughts on this digital concept?
