A month old Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder makes loud engine noise

A reader’s Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder from Tamil Nadu makes loud engine noise. The car was towed to the service centre two days back. The service centre is still diagnosing the vehicle and they haven’t found the issue yet.

As you can clearly hear in the video, there is a loud clatter from the engine bay sounding like a tractor. The car is with the authorised Toyota dealership service centre in Tamil Nadu since a long while and nobody has yet found the issue.

This is a brand new vehicle, just a month old. It has done only 700 km till date. The car is powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor that produces 103 HP and 137 Nm.

We’ll update this post once the service centre diagnoses the vehicle and finds a solution to this problem. Let us know if you or anyone you know is facing the same issue with the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder or the Maruti Grand Vitara.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder is also available with a self-charging Strong Hybrid Electric powertrain that produces a combined output of 114 BHP. It offers a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.97 km/l.
