Planning To Get A Hybrid Car? Toyota's Powerful MPV Is Going To Be Introduced In November
It is being said in media reports that the company is preparing to present it after Diwali, while its launch can be done in January next year.
Toyota has been working on its upcoming Innova Highcross MPV for quite some time now. Now the news is that it can be presented to the public in November. It is being said in media reports that the company is preparing to present it after Diwali, while its launch can be done in January next year. Let us tell you that this will be a three-row vehicle, which will be sold with the Innova Crysta.
The engine of Innova Holycross
Talking about the powertrain, due to coming in the Innova series, it is also expected to get a strong engine like the Crysta. Also, the company is expected to use the local version of the new Toyota Hybrid System II (THS II). The system gets a twin-motor setup to deliver higher step-off torque and better efficiency. The new model is likely to be powered by a 2.0-liter petrol hybrid powertrain and will not be offered with a diesel engine.
Holycross will be bigger than Krista
According to the information, in terms of size, the High Cross will be brought in a bigger size than the Innova Crysta. The new Innova will be around 4.7 meters long. As far as styling is concerned, the new Innova HighCross seen so far looks very similar to its global model. Hence it is expected that the upcoming model in India may share the design and features with its global model.
Monocoque frame to be used in Holycross
The new Innova HighCross will be the first Innova to use a very lightweight and advanced monocoque frame. Earlier, Ladder-frame architecture was used in Innova cars. It will also get a front-wheel drive set-up instead of the rear-wheel drive that is seen on the Innova Crysta and earlier variants. It can be given a wheelbase of around 2,850 mm, thus making it 100 mm longer than the current Innova Crysta. Also, it will be based on Toyota's modular TNGA-C platform, which is also used for the current generation Corolla.
