Toyota Innova Hycross Will Get a New Base Model and Fleet Models

Toyota just started taking orders again for the Innova Crysta, and according to our sources, fleet buyers can also get the new Innova Hycross. Also, both the hybrid and gasoline versions of the Toyota Innova Hycross will get a new base model.

  1. New base variant to be added to petrol, hybrid version
  2. Waiting period should see an increase with introduction of fleet buyers
  3. Maruti Suzuki to have its own Hycross derivative 

Toyota Innova Hycross for fleet operators

Toyota only makes the Innova Crysta with a 2.4-liter diesel engine, but the Innova Hycross comes with both a hybrid engine and a gasoline engine. All of these will be available to both fleet buyers and private buyers, giving both groups more choices.

The Innova Hycross hybrid will be available for fleet operators in three trim levels: base, VX, and ZX. There will be options for 7 or 8 seats. Also, fleet buyers will be able to buy the gasoline version with either two or four seats.

This will probably give Toyota an edge over Maruti Suzuki, which is expected to release its own version of the Innova Hycross in the second half of 2023. Maruti Suzuki doesn’t have an MPV in this segment that fleet operators or private buyers can buy right now, and it’s still not clear if the upcoming C-MPV will also be available to fleet operators.

The Maruti C-MPV should be mechanically similar to its Toyota counterpart, but it will have its own unique exterior and interior design.

Toyota Innova Hycross: new base variant

There are currently five trim levels for the Toyota Innova Hycross: G, GX, VX, ZX, and ZX (O). The first two have a 2.0-liter gasoline engine, and the rest have a 2.0-liter strong hybrid engine. According to our sources, Toyota is likely to add a base model for both engines that hasn’t been named yet and comes with 7 or 8 seats.

Toyota Innova Hycross: price and bookings

The petrol versions of the Hycross cost between Rs 18.30 lakh and Rs 19.20 lakh, and the hybrid costs between Rs 24.01 lakh and Rs 28.97 lakh. Depending on the model, people who want to buy a Hycross hybrid have to wait up to a year, while the Hycross petrol has a waiting time of up to six months. With the addition of fleet variants, both demand and wait times will go up by a lot.

Toyota just started selling the Hycross hybrid on a first-come, first-served basis, but they haven’t started selling the gasoline version yet. But some dealers we talked to said that unofficial reservations for the Hycross G and GX trims have started.
