The image of the new Innova HyCross' cabin has also revealed that the MPV will come with a giant floating touchscreen infotainment system. It is likely to be the same unit Toyota has used in the recently-launched Urban Cruiser HyRyder SUV. Under it is a vertical centre console housing climate control, gear setup and other functions. The interior will have a dual-tone theme with chrome accents on the dashboard and new upholstery, adding to its premium appeal.
The upcoming Innova Hycross is based on a new monocoque chassis from Toyota, instead of the ladder frame chassis used in previous generation models. It is likely to improve the ride quality, handling and body roll. The Hycross will be positioned above the Innova Crysta as it is expected to be a more premium product. It will be a petrol-only offering which will come mated to either a strong or mild hybrid system.
