Toyota Innova Hycross unveiled in India; bookings open

The Toyota Innova Hycross will be sold alongside the Innova Crysta.

Following its launch in the Indonesian market, the Toyota Innova Hycross has now been unveiled in India. Toyota has also opened the order books and customers can book the car by paying a token amount of Rs 50,000.

The Innova Hycross has a bolder and SUV-ish design compared to the Innova Crysta, while also being longer and wider. It features a large trapezoidal grille up front with slim LED headlamps on either side. The front bumper has triangular vents with slim LED daytime running lights, while the fog lamps are positioned on the lower section, either side of the air dam. The rear features wraparound tail lamps with a chrome strip in the centre, a chunky bumper and a roof spoiler.

The Innova Hycross gets a dual-tone interior with a choice of 7-seat or 8-seat configuration. The MPV has a 3-spoke steering wheel and a semi-digital instrument cluster. The centre console houses a 10.1-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system, a gear shifter, an electronic parking brake and other functions.

In India, the Toyota Innova Hycross will be offered in five variants. Higher variants will come equipped with features like paddle shifters, ventilated front seats, multi-zone climate control, ambient lighting, a powered tailgate and a panoramic sunroof. The MPV will also get the ‘Toyota Safety Sense’ suite which includes advanced driver assistance features like lane keep assist, blind spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and a pre-collision system.

The Innova Hycross is based on the TNGA-C monocoque architecture. It is available with a pure petrol and petrol-hybrid powertrain. The former is a 2.0-litre unit that puts out 172 BHP and 197 Nm. The strong-hybrid version uses a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine paired with Toyota’s 5th-gen strong-hybrid tech for a combined output of 183 BHP. Both engines are offered with a CVT that drives the front axle.

The strong-hybrid version is said to offer a fuel efficiency of 21.1 km/l.
