Toyota Innova HyCross design

The Toyota Innova HyCross is based on the TNGA GA-C platform which is all new (shared with the Voxy minivan sold in global markets) and while the shape bears resemblance to the Crysta, the HyCross’ styling is more SUV-centric. The face is inspired by the Hilux pickup with the hexagonal grille, and you get automatic LED DRLs on the top-spec variants, along with 18-inch alloy wheels. The overall design of the HyCross is a lot more contemporary than the Crysta.
