Toyota Innova HyCross Features

Toyota Innova Hycross top variants not available for bookings for the second time

Toyota has once again halted bookings for the range topping ZX and ZX (O) variants of the Innova Hycross, just a month after reopening them. This decision comes in response to the consistently high demand for these models, which are priced at Rs. 30.34 lakhs and Rs. 30.98 lakhs (ex-showroom), respectively. Bookings for these variants were previously paused in April last year due to supply chain issues, only to resume a year later.

As of May 2024, Toyota continues to offer the Innova Hycross hybrid in the VX and VX (O) variants. However, these too come with significant waiting periods of up to 14 months. In comparison, the non-hybrid petrol variants have a shorter waiting period of approximately six months. Notably, the waiting time for the Hycross exceeds that of Toyota’s flagship Vellfire, which stands at 12 months.

The Innova Hycross is equipped with a 2.0-litre strong hybrid powertrain that produces 184 HP, paired with an e-CVT gearbox. The non-hybrid version features a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 173 HP and 209 Nm of torque, mated to a CVT automatic transmission.

Recently, Toyota introduced a new non-hybrid variant, the GX (O), priced at Rs. 20.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). It comes with features like 16-inch alloys, LED fog lamps, rear sunshade, 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, front & rear parking sensors, 360-degree camera, electronic parking brake with Auto-hold, etc. This move aims to offer more options to consumers amidst the high demand for the hybrid variants.

The Innova Hycross faces competition from its badge-engineered cousin, the Maruti Suzuki Invicto, as well as other 7-seater SUVs such as the Tata Safari, Mahindra XUV700, MG Hector Plus and Hyundai Alcazar. Despite the competitive market, the high demand for the Innova Hycross, particularly its top-spec variants, underscores its strong position in the segment.
