Customers will be able to choose from two petrol versions (G and GX) and three petrol-hybrid versions including VX, ZX, and ZX (O). These will be available across even-seat and eight-seat configurations.
Powering the Toyota Innova Hycross is a 2.0-litre petrol engine that generates 172bhp and 187Nm of torque. This engine is also mated to a mild-hybrid motor that develops an additional 111bhp and 206Nm of torque. Transmission options include CVT and E-CVT units. The model is claimed to sprint from 0-100kmph in 9.5 seconds, while the claimed mileage stands at 21.1kmpl. Additionally, Toyota claims that the Innova Hycross will return a range of 1097km on a full tank of fuel. In the dimensions department, the MPV has grown and now measures 4,755mm in length, 1,850mm in width, and 1,795mm in height. The wheelbase stands at 2,850mm.
From a design point, the 2023 Toyota Innova Hycross is all-new, with the fascia dominated by a new grille with a chrome underline, sweptback LED headlamps, a new front bumper with indicators and triangular inserts on the corners, and a sleek air dam with integrated LED fog lights.
