India-Spec Toyota Innova Hycross Teased For The First Time - Reveal Just A Few Days Away

Japanese carmaker Toyota has teased the arrival of the all-new Innova Hycross ahead of its launch. The all-new Toyota Innova Hycross is expected to be revealed on November 25th, four days after its global debut.

The teaser image for the India-spec Innova Hycross MPV has been splashed across the Japanese firm's social channels and shows off a side view of the MPV's front end.

The image teases the upright SUV-like front end of the upcoming Toyota Innova Hycross which has been revealed in images leaked across the interwebs. Toyota's own teasers for the MPV's international debut in Indonesia have revealed that the Innova Hycross will sport a large panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, a rather big touchscreen for the infotainment setup along with leather upholstery for the seats.

Leaked images of the upcoming Toyota Innova Hycross in the wild have revealed quite a few details about the upcoming SUV's SUV-inspired design. The leaked images show off the swoopy and sleek new headlights flanking either side of a chunky hexagonal grille with chrome accents. The new MPV also features an updated set of taillights and new alloy wheels.

The upcoming Innova Hycross will also bring with it a host of mechanical changes to the MPV which will really help differentiate it from its predecessors. The new Innova Hycross will ditch diesel in favour of regular petrol and strong hybrid electrified petrol powertrains.

Instead of the 1.5-litre hybrid system seen on the new Urban Cruiser Hyryder, the new Innova Hycross is expected to get a 2.0-litre version of the Japanese firm's strong hybrid setup.

However, the biggest change will come in the form of the chassis underpinning the new Innova Hycross. The latest version of the Innova will ditch the ladder-on-frame setup for a monocoque based on the TNGA architecture.

The new Innova Hycross will also mark the first time that the Innova will send power to its front wheels. Previous generations of the Innova have all featured rear-wheel drive but the newest Hycross is set to make the front wheels do all the work.

Toyota is expected to open bookings for the Innova Hycross after the unveiling of the new MPV on the 25th of November. Prices are expected to be announced at Auto Expo 2023.

Thoughts About The Upcoming Toyota Innova Hycross

The Toyota Innova Hycross will be the latest metamorphosis that India's best-known MPV will undergo in its journey in the subcontinent. Whether the expected loss of the diesel powerplant does bring about any changes is something we'll only know when it starts heading out of showrooms.
