(Click on the arrow below to play the video)


This video is about the ownership review of Toyota Innova Hycross after driving 15000km. The owner is Jagdeep Singh Rana who is a CA by profession.

Key Discussions

  • Competition vs Hycross
  • His Garage
  • Sales Experience
  • Accessories
  • How to reduce the booking period
  • Why not XUV 7OO, Harrier, or ScorpioN
  • Why 6 seater for a small family
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
