Toyota Innova HyCross to ADAS . Possibility of getting advanced features including


The Toyota Innova HyCross is expected to be launched in India by early 2023 and will most likely be powered by a hybrid petrol engine.

Toyota is widely reported to unveil the new generation Innova globally in November 2022 and is expected to reach India in the early parts of next year. It may be named Innova HighCross in India as the name has been trademarked and Toyota may opt for the Innova Xenics nameplate in the international markets.

The Japanese manufacturer may take the opportunity to showcase the Innova HighCross at the 2023 Auto Expo but there is no official confirmation yet. What we do know is that the upcoming MPV will drop the existing body-on-frame construction in favor of monocoque as the modular TNGA-B platform will make it a traditional front-wheel drive MPV.

The design of the Toyota Innova HyCross will be heavily influenced by models like the global Toyota MPVs and Corolla Cross which are based on the same architecture. It is believed to be sold alongside the existing Innova Crysta which has been in business in India for six and a half years and will be more upmarket as well.

A report from Southeast Asia indicates that the Innov Xenix will feature features like a sunroof and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) based technologies. It will be available in Indonesia in five variants namely G Petrol, G Hybrid, V Petrol, V Hybrid and Q Hybrid and one of its key highlights will be its mooted hybrid powertrain.

The hybrid technology could work similar to the 1.5-litre hybrid mill found in the urban cruiser Haider but could be heavily localized in India. It can be either a 1.8-litre or 2.0-litre petrol engine that has been chosen to work with the electric motor and battery pack. This is in response to stringent emission standards and to improve fuel economy.

The interior is also expected to be more premium with the presence of a new dashboard and center console and a long list of features including a large touchscreen infotainment system, an updated cluster, automatic climate control, wireless charger, multiple airbags, etc. Will be even more spacious than the current Crysta.
