Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched the all-new Innova Hycross in India late last year, with prices ranging from Rs 18.30 lakh to Rs 28.97 lakh (ex-showroom). The strong hybrid variants of the third-generation Innova have received a positive response from buyers and command a high waiting period. The standard non-hybrid GX variant has a waiting period of 5 to 6 months, whereas the VX, ZX, and ZX (O) variants powered by a powerful hybrid system have a waiting period of 15 to 18 months. The Innova Hycross is available in seven- and eight-seater configurations, and it is built on the modular TNGA-C platform that is common in global markets.

The Innova Hycross is offered with two powertrain options: a petrol-only engine and a petrol-hybrid system. The TNGA 2.0-litre gasoline engine produces 171bhp of maximum power and 187Nm of peak torque and is mated only to a CVT transmission. The hybrid motor, on the other hand, delivers 183bhp of maximum power and 206Nm of peak torque. This setup is paired with an e-CVT device. The Hycross is not available with a manual transmission. Toyota's fifth-generation Hybrid system, as well as self-charging hybrid technology, is used in the MPV. The Innova Hycross' powerful hybrid engine has a range of 1,097 kilometres on a full tank of fuel and a fuel efficiency of 21.1km/l. It can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds.
The Innova Hycross is available in five variants- G, GX, VX, ZX, and ZX (O). It is built on a monocoque platform, which allows it to weigh 200kg less than the Innova Crysta. Seven colours, including Super White, Platinum White Pearl, Silver Metallic, Attitude Black Mica, Sparkling Black Pearl Crystal Shine, Avant Garde Bronze Metallic, and Blackish Ageha Glass Flake, are available for buyers to choose from.
As mentioned earlier, the Innova Hycross' exterior features a new front-wheel-drive TNGA platform, a larger grille, slimmer LED headlamps, and a redesigned bumper with integrated LED DRLs that double as turn indicators. Standard elements on the Toyota Innova Hycross include a new rear quarter window, 18-inch alloy wheels, and horizontally stacked split LED taillamps.

A 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system mounted on the dashboard, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, ambient lighting, multi-zone climate control, an electric tailgate, and a nine-speaker JBL audio system are among the interior features of the Toyota Innova Hycross. The MPV also has an electrically operated middle row.
In the Indian market, the Innova Hycross is set to rival the likes of the Innova Crysta, the MG Hector Plus, the Hyundai Alcazar, and the Mahindra XUV700.
