Toyota Innova Hycross gets SUV-inspired design
For the new Innova, Toyota has adopted a more SUV-like appearance with a large, upright grille, a high bonnet line and body cladding all around. The hexagonal grille gets chrome surrounds below and is flanked by wraparound LED headlamps. The bumpers feature matte silver inserts and massive horizontal Daytime Running Lamps that double up as turn indicators.
While the front looks like an SUV, the profile features a distinct MPV silhouette. Like the Crysta, the Hycross too gets a large glasshouse, promising good visibility for all three rows. At the rear, it gets a roof-mounted spoiler, chunky LED tail-lights and a blacked-out rear bumper.
Speaking of dimensions, while the height and the ground clearance are the same as the Crysta, the Hycross is 20mm longer and 20mm wider, with a wheelbase that's 100mm more than the Crysta.
Toyota Innova Hycross: interior design
On the inside, the Hycross marks a complete departure from the Crysta, featuring a multi-layered dashboard with horizontal lines. What stands out is the large 10.1-inch floating touchscreen, which flows down to the rectangular AC vents and stack of HVAC controls.
The dashboard features soft-touch leather and metallic decorations, with the gear lever mounted on the dashboard. The higher variants of the MPV get dual-tone brown and black interior theme with Dark Chestnut leather seat upholstery, while lower variants get black fabric upholstery.
Toyota Innova Hycross: variants and equipment list
Toyota is offering the Hycross with a total of five variants – G, GX, VX, ZX and ZX(O). The top variants feature goodies like paddle shifters, ventilated front seats, memory function for the driver’s seat, ambient lighting and a powered tailgate. It also gets a panoramic sunroof – a first for an Innova.
The new Innova Hycross debuts Toyota's ADAS tech called Toyota Safety Sense with features like lane keep assist, blind spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert and a pre-collision system. Other safety features include six airbags, ABS with EBD, Traction Control and ESP as standard.
When it comes to seating configurations, the Innova Hycross gets 7- and 8-seat layouts. The 7-seat configuration gets two captain’s chairs with a segment-first ottoman function for the middle row. The 8-seat layout, on the other hand, gets bench seats for both second and third rows. Toyota is providing three-point seat belts for all passengers.

Toyota Innova Hycross: platform, powertrain and fuel economy
Unlike all the previous iterations of the Innova, which were underpinned by a ladder-frame construction, the new Hycross uses a monocoque chassis and is based on Toyota's TNGA-C platform.
The Innova Hycross gets petrol and strong-hybrid powertrain options, but no diesel. The strong-hybrid powertrain is a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit, which uses an Atkinson or Miller cycle to aid fuel efficiency. The Hybrid powertrain produces a combined output of 184hp and comes mated to an e-Drive transmission.
The non-hybrid version of the same 1,987cc engine makes 172hp and 205Nm and is paired to a CVT gearbox. Both configurations of the Innova Hycross are front-wheel drive only and do not get a manual transmission option. Toyota claims a fuel efficiency figure of 23.24kpl for the hybrid, while the naturally aspirated version gets a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 16.13kpl.
It must also be noted that only the base G and GX trims can be had with the non-hybrid powertrain, while the higher VX, ZX and ZX (O) trims are only available with strong hybrids.
Toyota Innova Hycross warranty details
Toyota is offering a warranty of three years or 1,00,000km, which can be extended to five years or 2,20,000km. The carmaker is also offering a warranty of eight years or 1,60,000km on the hybrid's battery.
Toyota Innova Hycross rivals
The new Innova Hycross does not have a direct rival, but finds itself in the company of similarly priced three-row SUVs like the Mahindra XUV700 and Scorpio N, Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus and the Tata Safari. It will also take on the Kia Carnival, which is scheduled to be launched later next year.
