Toyota is bringing the Toyota Innova Hycross to India later this week after having unveiled the car in the Indonesian market as the Kijang Innova Zenix. The Toyota Innova Crysta has been the long-standing king of its segment and is now expected to be succeeded by the Hycross. Let's take a look at what are the upgrades from the Crysta to the Hycross.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Innova Crysta: Dimensions

The Hycross is 4,755mm in length, 1,850mm in width, 1,795mm in height and a 2,850mm wheelbase. The Innova Crysta on the other hand is 4,735mm in length, 1,830mm in width, 1,795mm in height, and a 2,750mm wheelbase. This results in the Hycross being marginally larger than the Crysta in virtually all dimensions, with the exception of height, which is comparable.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Innova Crysta: Powertrain

Toyota Innova Hycross uses a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol motor that puts out 154PS and 190 Nm that pairs with a 113PS and 206 Nm electric motor with an e-CVT in the mix. The Innova Hycross will be a petrol-only offering for the first time now and lower-spec models could get a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol with 170PS and 202 Nm, again paired with a CVT.

A 2.4-litre motor powers the diesel versions of the Innova Crysta that makes 150PS and 343 Nm with the five-speed manual or 360 Nm with the six-speed auto. The petrol motor is a 2.7-litre unit that makes 166PS and 245 Nm, pairing with the same gearbox combinations.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Innova Crysta: Interiors

Comparing the Hycross to the Crysta, the inside is entirely new. The central AC vents are located underneath a free-standing touchscreen that has been positioned at the top of the dashboard as the primary distinction. With the central AC vents on either side, the Crysta's touchscreen is located in the middle of the dashboard.

Another significant distinction between the two is the Hycross's incorporation of a sunroof - a panoramic one, no less - which is a first for an Innova in India. Both the Hycross and the Crysta include air conditioning vents for the rear passenger seats, although the Hycross's are situated above the windows while the Crysta's are on the roof.

Unlike the Innova Crysta, where the gear lever was situated on the floor, the Hycross' gear lever is built into the dashboard. Additionally, depending on the model, the Hycross will include both an analogue and a digital instrument cluster, in contrast to the Innova Crysta's single analogue instrument cluster.
