According to the officially claimed figures, It’s more frugal than all of its other MPV and seven-seater SUV alternatives

Toyota Innova Hycross Fuel Efficiency

Update: Toyota has launched the Innova Hycross from Rs 18.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

Toyota Innova Hycross has been unveiled in India, with prices likely to be announced in January 2023. The new generation of the MPV is a front-wheel drive model and is powered only by 2-litre petrol engine, which can also be preferred with a strong-hybrid powertrain. 

The 186PS 2-litre strong-hybrid combination is coupled with an e-CVT (single speed transmission) and claims to deliver a fuel economy of 21.1kmpl. The Hycross, just like the Crysta, doesn’t have any direct rivals but is considered as a premium alternative to MPVs like the Carens, Triber and Ertiga. The apt but slightly more premium rival for it is the Kia Carnival. 

Here’s a quick FE comparison of the Innova Hycross with other MPVs on sale:

16.5kmpl / 18.4kmpl




  • The Hycross has the most powerful petrol engine here but definitely not the torquiest. 

  • The Carens and Carnival are the only ones offered with diesel engines here, the latter being more powerful than the Hycross. The Crysta is also set to regain its 2.4-litre diesel engine soon. 

Toyota Innova Crysta

  • The Innova Hycross offers double the efficiency of the Crysta petrol as well as diesel, all thanks to the hybrid powertrain. 

  • It’s even more efficient than the Carens turbo-petrol DCT and diesel-AT, by almost 5kmpl and 3kmpl, respectively. 

  • Even if you consider the more affordable MPVs with smaller engines like the Maruti Ertiga and Renault Triber, the Hycross hybrid is still more economical by 0.5kmpl. 

  • Furthermore, the Hycross’ bigger 52 litre fuel tank translates to over 1000 kms of range! 

  • While all of them get the option of an automatic, the Hycross gets an e-CVT, which is basically a single-speed transmission.
