After its launch in the Indonesian market, Toyota has unveiled the all-new Innova HyCross in India. The Innova HyCross is completely new in many aspects such as its design, interiors, tech features, platform and powertrain options. It is manufactured at the company’s facility in Bidadi, near Bengaluru, with deliveries to commence in January next year. Customers can now also book the car by paying a token amount of Rs 50,000.

The Innova HyCross has a longer, wider, bolder and SUV-ish design compared to the Innova Crysta. It features a large trapezoidal grille up front with slim LED headlamps on either side. The front bumper gets triangular vents with slim LED daytime running lights. The fog lamps are positioned on the lower section, on either side of the air dam. The rear features wraparound tail lamps with a chrome strip in the centre, a bold bumper and a roof spoiler.
