There are also some rumors that Toyota will permanently stop production of the diesel Innova Crysta due to emissions issues. But at the same time, Toyota India is also getting ready to roll out the new Innova Hyryder to the Indian market soon.
The new Toyota Innova will have the suffix “Hycross” while the suffix Crysta will disappear. The new Innova is expected to be offered only with a 2.0-litre NA petrol engine with hybrid technology.
Dimensionally, we expect the new Toyota Innova Hycross to measure 4.7 meters in length and have a wheelbase of 2,850 mm. Like the current generation Innova, it will have a multi-seat layout as well as a spacious cabin, some of the key features of the MPV.
The Toyota Innova Hycross will be based on the TNGA-C monocoque architecture. It is expected to be lighter than the Innova Crysta and will have a FWD configuration.
In terms of features, expect the Toyota Innova Hycross to come with an 8-inch infotainment system, 360 camera, semi-digital instrument cluster and an electric sunroof.

The company has released a teaser video of the car on its official social media with the tagline ‘Coming Soon’. Like Jeep’s other products in India, the Grand Cherokee is also likely to be manufactured in India. That said, we expect Jeep to import CKD (completely knocked down) kits of the SUV and assemble it itself, similar to what it does with the Wrangler.
That said, since the Grand Cherokee is already available in overseas markets, we have a fair idea of ​​what the India-spec version of the SUV might be packed with. The powertrains offered with the Grand Cherokee internationally include a 3.6-liter V6 producing 293 hp and 353 Nm or a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 producing 360 horsepower and 529 Nm. There is also a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol plug-in hybrid with 375 hp/637 Nm available with the 4xe variants.
The Grand Cherokee can be had in either a RWD configuration or an all-wheel drive layout, and the SUV is offered in both 5-seat (two-row) and 7-seat (three-row) configurations. We expect Jeep to offer the Grand Cherokee in India with either the 2.0-litre turbo petrol or 3.6-litre V6 engine, mated to a standard 8-speed automatic gearbox.
