I’ve driven this car on good and bad roads, highways, and in the ghat sections. It has also been used in the city quite extensively.
BHPian KURU recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
It’s been a week since I got the delivery of my Toyota Innova Hycross (ZXO). I had a very good experience with Nandi Toyota. They have been extremely helpful and transparent. I took the car for a Bangalore-Goa trip and back after completing about 200 kms within Bangalore city. I have driven it on good roads, bad roads, highways, ghat sections (not too steep) and a lot of flat twisty roads too.
- The car is extremely nimble. Very easy to manoeuvre in the city and really easy to drive on the highways too. Just two fingers are enough to steer the car on a bend even at high speeds. Steering is light but does not compromise too much in lack of feel. It is surprisingly good at cornering for an MPV and barely any body roll.
- The ghat sections were a breeze and effortless, unlike Crysta’s hydraulic steering.
- The car has enough power and torque to overtake on the highways. There was no lack of torque on inclines, even when the accelerator was pressed only halfway. (My car was not loaded at all, just two people and two suitcases).
- The brakes are much better than the Crysta. Braking at 120-140 kmph is not a problem with no vibrations at all. The four discs really help.
- Even though the suspension is soft, there is not much vertical movement felt in the car.
- No rattling sounds inside the car.
- The infotainment system is simple yet functional, I have no complaints about it.
- The driver seat has a welcome feature where it moves back and then moves forward into position once the car is started (like in the 2010 Superb), something that I really missed from that car. Ventilated seats are such a blessing on long drives, even though they are not as strong as the ones in the 2022 Superb.
- The MID was showing an average of 16kmpl during the first 200kms which was driven in the city. After running the car on highways and ghat sections, it showed an average of 15.2kmpl. The mileage did not drastically reduce on inclines like I had expected it to. Overtaking on single-lane roads with oncoming traffic is what really kills the mileage figures. I have not tried to calculate the mileage myself yet. These mileage figures are probably because of the way I drove as I am still getting used to the car, maybe others could get better economy figures from the car.
