Toyota Innova Hycross Revealed - 21.1km/l Mileage

Japanese carmaker Toyota has revealed the all-new Innova Hycross MPV in India. The all-new Toyota Innova Hycross features an SUV-ish design and is now offered with a hybrid powertrain.

The all-new Toyota Innova Hycross is the third iteration of the Innova MPV in India. The new Innova has undergone a host of changes that ensure that those inside have even more space while being greener than ever thanks to the ditching of the diesel for a new strong hybrid petrol setup.

Toyota Innova Hycross - Specs & Dimensions

The Toyota Innova Hycross is offered with either pure petrol or a petrol-hybrid powertrain. In pure petrol guise, the Toyota Innova Hycross draws power from a conventional 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 172bhp and 205Nm of peak torque.

The new Innova Hycross hybrid uses a 2.0-litre Atkinson Cycle engine that produces 150bhp and 187bhp while the single electric motor produces 111bhp and 205Nm of peak torque. However, the peak system power output is limited to 184bhp.

Both powertrains are mated to a CVT automatic gearbox which sends power to the front wheels (a first for the Innova). The new Innova Hycross delivers a mileage of 21.1km/l which gives it a range of 1,097km on a single tank of petrol. The new Innova Hycross sprints from 0-100km/h in just 9.5 seconds.

The new Innova Hycross is based on the TNGA platform and it measures 4,755mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,795mm tall. The wheelbase of the new Toyota Innova Hycross is 2,850mm long and the ground clearance is 185mm.
