Toyota Innova HyCross | First Drive Review 2023

The Innova HyCross is equipped with two powertrains- a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine combined with a CVT unit that produces 172 bhp and 205 Nm of peak torque. 

While the other is a 2.0-liter petrol engine coupled to an electric motor, or as Toyota refers to it, a self-charging hybrid powertrain. 

I drove the latter, which makes a combined output of 184 bhp and 206 Nm, propels the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds.

Accelerate, and the power from its hybrid engine feels smooth and effortless. 

Moreover, what really catches you by surprise is the silence you experience when you start the HyCross and not the diesel rattle you are used to in Toyotas. 

The vehicle also has a specific EV mode which allows the driver to drive in pure EV for a small distance.

Yet another astounding feat is the instant power you have on tap, thanks to the electric motor.
