Toyota Innova Hycross Pros
- A great-looking MPV. SUV’ish styling packs appeal
- Nicely designed interiors, good comfort in all 3 rows and usable boot (even with 3rd row up)
- Loaded to the gills with features such as a panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats, electrically adjustable rear ottoman seats, multi-zone climate control, connected car features, leather upholstery, drive modes, etc.
- Hybrid powertrain makes it lighter on the pocket than a diesel and future-proof too. Very good fuel efficiency (expect city FE of 15-17 km/l)
- Impressive performance with a sub-10 second 0-100 km/h time (Toyota claims 9.5 seconds)
- Monocoque construction results in sorted handling and comfortable ride quality
- Brilliant NVH levels result in a quiet and serene experience inside the cabin
- Toyota's bullet-proof reliability, excellent after-sales service and fuss-free ownership experiences
- Safety features such as 6 airbags, Toyota Safety Sense (ADAS), ABS, ESP, TC, all-wheel disc brakes, hill hold, TPMS, Isofix & 3-point seatbelts for all
Toyota Innova Hycross Cons
- Expected to be even more expensive than the already-pricey Innova Crysta. Will be premium-priced
- Top-end variants are only available with captain seats in the middle row. No bench option is inexplicable!
- 18" wheels with 50 profile tyres compromise the overall stance; they look very small
- Monocoque construction won’t be as rugged & abuse-friendly as the Crysta's body-on-frame build
- Interior plastic quality is very mediocre, some parts feel budget-grade
- Rear seat ottomans are useless for taller passengers
- Average sound quality from the JBL system, poor camera resolution and a basic infotainment system display
- Missing features such as rain-sensing wipers, lumbar adjustment, boss lever on the front passenger seat
- The already-good ride quality could be even better with higher profile tyres (e.g. on craters). 225/50 sidewalls are on the shorter side
