Would You Buy The Innova Hycross?
There’s no diesel and no manual transmission on offer.
After unveiling it last month, Toyota India today revealed the prices of the Innova Hycross. It starts at INR 18.30 lakh and goes up to INR 28.97 lakh, covering eight variants and two powertrain options. The seven-seater doesn’t have a diesel engine option, nor does it offer a manual transmission. But it is longer, wider and boasts a wheelbase that’s 100mm more than the Innova Crysta. And courtesy of some muscular styling, the newcomer looks more like an SUV than an MPV. Here, acquaint yourself with the complete price list:
All petrol variants come with a 2.0-litre motor that puts out 172hp/205Nm, while a CVT takes care of harnessing that power and feeding it to the wheels. The hybrid powertrain, on the other hand, consists of the same engine coupled with an electric motor, which gets its juices from a self-charging 168-cell Nickel Metal Hydride battery. Toyota claims a total system output of 184hp and maximum fuel efficiency of 21.1kmpl.
Moving on to the features list. As standard, the Toyota Innova Hycross comes with stuff like dual airbags, a four-speaker sound system, vehicle stability control, Hill Start Assist and dual-LED automatic headlamps. However, the fully-loaded version ropes in a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 9-speaker JBL sound system, 8-way powered driver’s seat with memory function, automatic climate control, paddle shifters, a panoramic sunroof and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Innova Hycross also offers Toyota Safety Sense, which comprises safety tech such as radar-guided cruise control, auto high beam, a blind spot monitor, a Pre-Collision System and Lane Trace Assist. Also, the Toyota i-Connect is available. That offers more than 65 connected-car features, including controlling the AC, locking and unlocking the vehicle and starting or stopping the ignition remotely.
Rivals? Well, the Toyota Innova Hycross takes the game to the likes of the Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the Mahindra XUV700. With its stablemate, the Innova Crysta, the Innova Hycross will also try and lure people away from the all-new Kia Carnival, which is scheduled to launch next year.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
