The launch of the new Toyota Innova Hycross is just around the corner, and with the launch nearing, more and more official details of the rugged-looking MPV are being revealed one by one. A few teasers of the Innova Hycross have already been released by Toyota on its official social media handles, and the test mules undergoing trial runs on public roads are revealing a few more. Here’s a new spy video which reveals that the Toyota Innova Hycross will get a floating touchscreen infotainment system.
In a short video uploaded by Motorbeam on Instagram, we can see a test mule of Toyota Innova Hycross rolling on the streets in a fully camouflaged form during the night hours. A short glimpse of the cabin of the Innova Hycross revealed that the MPV is having a floating touchscreen infotainment system. It is believed that this screen is a 9-inch unit and will feature wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It is also expected to come in-built with voice command integration and connectivity features, along with a display for a 360-degree parking camera.
Toyota has already unveiled the cabin of the Innova Hycross officially, which hints at some of the premium features which the MPV is getting in the Indian market. The new Innova Hycross will feature a large panoramic sunroof, lower centre console-mounted transmission lever, dual-zone automatic climate control, electronic parking brake, ambient lighting, new design for the multi-functional steering wheel and analogue instrument console with TFT MID. The Innova Hycross will get dual-tone black and brown leather upholstery for a premium appeal on the inside.
Like the Innova Crysta, the new Toyota Innova Hycross will be a three-row MPV, which will get both the options of captain seats and bench seats for the middle row. Unlike the Innova Crysta, which is based on a ladder-on-frame construction, the new Innova Hycross is arriving with a front-wheel-drive configuration as standard.
In terms of powertrain too, the new Toyota Innova Hycross is making a shift, with it getting a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, replacing the 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel engine of the Innova Crysta. The new petrol-electric hybrid powertrain is expected to be based on a 1.8-litre or 2.0-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine. Expect the new Toyota Innova Hycross to deliver even better fuel efficiency figures over the 2.4-litre diesel engine with this new petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. The new Toyota Innova Hycross will make its debut in the Indian market on 25th November.
