The next Toyota Innova Hycross gets teased for the first time!


The upcoming Innova Hycross, which is set to make its world debut next month, has had its teaser image released by Toyota Indonesia showcasing the MPV’s bold grille with sleek headlights and parts of the bumper. The Innova Hycross is expected to make its first appearance in the Indonesian market where it will likely launch under the “Innova Zenix” nameplate. Toyota’s next powerful hybrid minivan has been tested several times in India and is expected to launch in India in the first quarter of 2023 after the global unveiling.

In the teaser image revealed, only the front of the minivan sports twin-barrel LED headlights sitting either side of the large hexagonal grille with a straight nose and an aggressive-looking hood with a triangular-shaped fog light housing. pointed on the bumper and a lower skid plate. From photos spied on the test mules so far, we can confirm that the MPV gets horizontally placed taillights and 10-spoke alloys that match the wheel arches perfectly.

The Innova Hycross is built on Toyota’s TNGA-C global modular platform which also underpins the current generation Corolla sold overseas. This is the first time an Innova will be built on a monocoque-like chassis with a front-wheel-drive setup, which will give the Hycross a flat floor. At 4.7 meters long and 2,080mm wheelbase, the new Innova Hycross promises to be taller and significantly more spacious inside with the multiple 7- and 8-seater configurations offered by the company, which makes it practical. Under the hood, the Hycross will be powered by a powerful hybrid gasoline engine with no diesel offered as we saw with the Urban Crusier Hyryder. The Innova Hycross will use a 2.0-liter engine for the hybrid powertrain developing around 190 hp which will be sent to the front wheels via an e-CVT transmission.

The Japanese MPV crossover is expected to come equipped with a host of safety features such as ADAS as part of the Toyota Safety Sense platform. It could include features like Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, etc Toyota could also offer 6 airbags as standard from the base variant to meet the 6 airbag mandate which comes into effect in October next year i.e. 2023. The interiors would be fitted with a system touchscreen infotainment, 360-degree parking camera, sunroof, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and second-row captain’s chairs.
