New Toyota Innova HyCross MPV

Japanese automaker, Toyota is working on multiple new models including the next-gen Innova, a new mid-sized SUV and the updated Urban Cruiser for the Indian market. In fact, the new models have been spotted testing multiple times on the Indian roads. Toyota has also registered two new names – the Hyryder and the Innova HyCross.

It is expected that the new SUV and the new Innova MPV will be called the Hyryder and the Innova HyCross respectively. The new names begin with “Hy”, which suggests that the new SUV and the MPV will come with hybrid powertrains.

The new Toyota Innova HyCross is expected to be introduced before the end of this year, most probably around Diwali. Recent media reports claim that the existing Innova Crysta will continue to be sold alongside the new Innova HyCross. The existing model will receive a mild makeover and is expected to target fleet operators in the country.

Instead of a ladder-on frame chassis, the new Toyota Innova HyCross will be based on a car-like monocoque frame. The new model will be based on the Toyota’s global TNGA-C or GA-C (Global Architecture). It is likely to have a wheelbase of around 2,850mm, which is 100mm longer than the current Innova Crysta.

The next-gen Innova HyCross will come with all-new design, which will be inspired by Toyota’s global UVs. The SUV could share some of the design highlights with the new Veloz MPV on sale in Indonesia & Thailand. Thanks to the new monocoque platform, the new Innova will be significantly lighter than the outgoing model. This will improve its performance as well as efficiency.

To counter the rising fuel prices, Toyota is looking at alternate fuel options for its model range in India. The company will introduce hybrid and CNG powered cars in the market. The new Innova HyCross and the Hyryder SUV will come with Toyota’s hybrid powertrains.

It is likely to be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol hybrid powertrain. The company could use the localised version of the new THS II (Toyota Hybrid System II). This system has a twin-motor setup calibrated to deliver high ‘step-off’ torque and better efficiency. The new Innova won’t be offered with a diesel engine.
