Redesigned Toyota Innova Hycross

Toyota underwent a complete overhaul with the new-generation Innova Hycross, maintaining its high demand in the market. The premium MPV, known for its comfortable cabin and reliability, has a significant waiting period, reflecting the strong reputation of the Innova badge. Recently, Toyota celebrated surpassing the milestone of 50,000 unit sales of the Innova Hycross MPV within approximately 15 months since its launch in India.

Features and Specifications

Driving a new Innova Hycross is more like driving a vehicle because of its monocoque structure, which replaces the previous model's ladder-on-frame chassis. With a long list of features designed to improve comfort, the style takes on a more substantial SUV-like appearance. Features include dual-zone climate control, an electrically operable tailgate, ventilated front seats, and electrically adjustable ottoman seats in the second row.
