The 7-seater market has seen a lot of activity in the last few months. We have seen the launch of the Jeep Meridian, Mahindra Scorpio-N and more. However, now the most popular car in this segment will be getting a major update, the Innova. We have covered the Innova HyCross in detail and now Toyota has dropped the first teaser of the car for the Indian market. So what does this reveal? In today’s article, let’s talk about new Toyota Innova launch and teaser.
First India teaser
Toyota India has posted the first teaser of the Innova HyCross for the Indian market. In the teaser, it says India’s legend in a new ‘HY’ clearly hinting it is the Innova Hycross. We can see the front design of the Innova showing a sleek LED headlamp design. Other details include, the aggresive bumpers and grille design. The teaser also says the new ‘HY’ of SUV styling hinting that the Innova Hycross will get a more SUV like design.
Before the teaser, the car was spotted in a company parking lot in Indonesia. Overall the car is spotting no camouflage revealing the design. At the front, we have a hexagonal grille similar to the new Hilux. The headlamps have gotten sleeker compared to the current Innova Crysta. In the side profile, we have a curvy design rather than the boxy design of the current Innova. The rear is not seen in these spy shots, but we can expect oval-shaped tail lamps.
What else do we know?
The hype around the new Toyota Innova launch has been around for quite some time now. So we do have a good amount of information regarding this new Innova. First up, it will be based on the TNGA-C platform, which is a monocoque platform. This is a big change considering the Innova has always been a Ladder-on-frame car. Another surprise is the non-availability of the diesel engine, as the Innova HyCross will be getting a strong hybrid petrol engine. Can it match the efficiency of a diesel engine? Only time will tell. Overall the Innova HyCross could be quite modern with features like a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, electronic parking brake, power tailgate etc.
New Toyota Innova – Launch timeline
Toyota is expected to launch the Innova HyCross in Indonesia on 21st November 2022. What about the India launch? Toyota is expected to unveil the Innova HyCross on 25th November, with pricing to be announced at the Auto Expo of 2023. Another thing to note is that the new Innova HyCross will be sold alongside the Innova Crysta to give buyers a wider range of options.
