Toyota Innova Hycross (Xenix) Leaked- Mahindra XUV700 Rival? | Tech US News


Among the most awaited upcoming cars, the Toyota Innova Hycross will soon make its world debut in Indonesia as the ‘Innova Xenix’.

Until now Toyota Innova has been the undisputed leader of the MPV segment. In fact, this MPV has not only ruled the Indian market but, in fact, created a legacy of sorts in the Indonesian car market as well. Currently, in its second generation, the Innova will soon get a full model replacement. The new model is set to make its global debut in Indonesia on November 21 as the Innova Zenix. Meanwhile, in India, the vehicle will be known as the Toyota Innova Hicross and will debut on November 25. Ahead of the official introduction, a set of leaked images show us what the new MPV will look like.

Toyota Innova Hicross Exterior

The only image that has surfaced so far shows the SUVish exterior. That said, the new model will definitely remind you of the Crysta, especially when viewed from certain angles. Also, the new model definitely takes inspiration from some of the latest SUVs in the automaker’s lineup. At the front, it has a trapezoidal honeycomb grille with ample chrome garnish on the frame. The bumper looks quite sporty, especially around the edges. The large air dams include LED DRLs and some more chrome trim. Meanwhile, the LED projector headlamps look sleek and add quite a bold touch to the front fascia. Side by side, you’d be quick to draw parallels with some of the international SUVs in Toyota’s lineup. W

While the greenhouse looks as big as ever, the rear quarter is more SUVish and even feels a bit smaller than the Cresta. Also, the Innova Xenix doesn’t look slab-sided like its predecessor. This is mostly due to sharp edges and well-finished sheet metal. The alloys, though, seem to be single-tone units. The India-spec Innova Hycross may get a machine kit. However, the SUVish design would mean the Hycross could lock in very well with the likes of the Mahindra XUV700 and Tata Safari.

Innova Xenix interior and specs

The only leaked image of the interior shows a modern dashboard with a large touchscreen infotainment unit. It has a waterfall design with a two-tone color scheme. Also, metallic accents have been used liberally to ensure a premium ambience. The instrument binoculars have a semi-digital setup. A teaser has already revealed the large panoramic sunroof. Other features will include electric front seats, wireless smartphone charger, touch-sensitive Zircon controls, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, dual-zone climate control and more. Also, the MPV will be high on practicality with many cup holders and storage spaces spread throughout the cabin.

A major departure from the Crysta will come from the fact that the Innova Hycross, aka Xenix, will not have a built-in ladder frame. Instead, it will be based on the monocoque TNGA-C modular platform. This will also lead to a shift from RWD format to FWD. All this can also lead to greater crash protection with a more spacious cabin. The India-spec MPV will be available with two engine options – petrol and petrol hybrid. The former will be a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine, while the latter will be a 2.0-litre potent hybrid unit. Transmission options will include both manual and automatic units for the petrol unit. The electric hybrid version will only have an automatic transmission though. There will be no diesel option.

The Innova Hycross sits on a modular TNGA-C platform as opposed to the iMV ladder frame chassis found in the Innova Crysta. As such, it deviates from the RWD configuration for a more conventional front-wheel drive layout and is also expected to have a more spacious cabin thanks to the monocoque construction with improved structural rigidity.
