Toyota’s famed people mover, the Innova Crysta is about to welcome its newer generation sibling, the Innova Hycross, which is set to be launched in India in 2023, after its global debut in Indonesia as the Innova Zenix. The MPV’s refreshed front look recently got revealed thanks to the teaser image dropped in by Toyota Indonesia wherein we notice that the new look of the Innova is in line with the brand’s international models like the Corolla Cross.

It has road sign assist, automatic high beam, lane departure alert, proactive driving assist, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, and dynamic radar cruise control. The Innova Hycross is expected to come powered by a localized version of THS II (Toyota Hybrid System II). It comes with a dual electric motor setup paired with a new 2.0-liter petrol motor.
