Maruti’s version of the Innova Hycross will be the brand’s second hybrid offering after the Grand Vitara.
Toyota is yet to announce the pricing for the Innova Hycross and there are talks about the Maruti-badged version of the MPV. Reports suggest that its market launch could happen around August 2023.
The Innova Hycross was unveiled in India last month. The MPV is larger than the Innova Crysta and features an SUV-ish design. Maruti Suzuki’s version could get minor cosmetic changes, including a new grille. However, overall it is likely to be a badge engineering exercise than a complete redesign.
Maruti’s version of the Innova Hycross will be the brand’s second hybrid offering after the Grand Vitara. As you are aware, the MPV uses a 2.0-litre petrol hybrid that makes 183 BHP and 206 Nm. The engine is mated to an e-CVT and is said to deliver a fuel economy of 21.1 km/l. The car is also offered with a pure-petrol engine. This unit makes 172 BHP and 197 Nm.
Like Toyota, Maruti Suzuki is expected to offer the MPV with ADAS features, making it the first model in its line-up equipped with advanced safety tech.
