Toyota is all set to introduce its latest MPV – the Toyota Innova Hycross in the Indian market. The Toyota Innova Hycross will be launched in India on November 25, 2022, while the price will be announced during the upcoming Auto Expo 2023. Before the India launch, the Innova Hycross is expected to be launched in Indonesia around November 21. The MPV will be sold as the Toyota Innova Zenix in the Indonesian market.
The Toyota Innova Hycross was recently teased by the company on social media and we got to see a bit of the MPV. The Innova Hycross gets a large hexagonal grille which is quite similar to the Corolla Cross SUV sold in the international markets. Key design highlights include L-shaped inserts, a refreshed bonnet design, new LED headlights and more. Likewise, the MPV gets 10-spoke alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera and much more.
The new Innova Hycross gets a monocoque architecture and front wheel layout. The Innova Crysta on the other hand gets a pillar-frame chassis along with rear-wheel drive. Talking about the Hycross engine, the MPV will not offer a diesel variant. Both the engines offered on the car will include a 2.0 liter petrol engine. It is expected that while one variant will get a 2.0-litre NA engine, the other will get a hybrid engine. In the name of cost-cutting, Toyota will localize hybrid powertrain technology, reports say.
The pricing of the Innova Hycross is expected to be announced at the Auto Expo 2023. After the launch, the MPV is expected to be sold on the existing Innova Crysta. For those who don’t know, the Innova Crysta is currently only sold with a petrol engine. Price-wise, the Toyota Innova costs somewhere between Rs 18.09 lakh and Rs 23.83 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
