Toyota Kirloskar Motor today revealed the all-new Innova HyCross for the Indian market. While it was rumoured that the HyCross will replace the Innova Crysta, both these models will actually co-exist with each other. Toyota India has officially confirmed that the Innova Crysta will make a comeback and this time with a diesel engine only. Bookings for the same will commence soon.
Toyota stopped accepting bookings for the Innova Crysta diesel in August this year. According to the company, it ceased taking orders due to huge demand and a high waiting period. Also, the supply chain woes affected the production of this MPV. But, early next year, Toyota will re-introduce the Innova Crysta for the Indian market and now it will be available with a diesel engine only.

Toyota Innova Crysta will be powered by a 2.4-litre diesel engine that develops 148 bhp and 360 Nm of peak torque. It is likely to be offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed torque-converter automatic transmission. Bookings for the same will commence soon. Toyota won’t offer a petrol motor with the Innova Crysta as the new Innova HyCross will be a petrol-only model.
The new Toyota Innova HyCross will be offered with two petrol engines: a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol mill paired with a CVT and a TNGA 2.0-litre four-cylinder hybrid petrol unit with an electric motor that will come mated to an e-CVT. Toyota will reveal the prices of the Innova HyCross in January 2023 and the deliveries are expected to commence in February next year.
