The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder and the Grand Vitara are identical in terms of features, drivetrains, width, and wheelbase. However, the Grand Vitara stands apart visually because of a distinctive front-end design and LED tail lamps that extend the full length of the boot. It has nine exterior colour options, three of which are dual-tone combinations, 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, and LED front lighting.

A vast number of options are available for the Grand Vitara, including a panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument panel, a 360-degree camera, a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a head-up display, ventilated front seats, six airbags, and a lot more.
