Toyota The Innova Hycross has been grabbing headlines in the Indian passenger car market for quite some time now. Currently, the automaker has been conducting road tests of station wagons for quite some time. The MPV was spotted undergoing road tests in the latest video, which revealed the car’s interior. A key design element revealed in the latest video is the floating island touchscreen infotainment system, which is interesting considering the other infotainment systems available in other Toyota models in India. Toyota is tight-lipped about the launch of the MPV. The Innova Hycross is expected to be launched in November 2022.

The car has been spotted with a floating touchscreen infotainment system that will be around 10 inches in size. In addition, the test car had a beige roof and a small quarter glass on the front pillar. Despite the camouflaged hood, the MPV’s muscular silhouette is easy to read. It will get large, swept-back headlights and is likely to come with a hexagonal grille at the front. There would be sports alloy wheels. At the back, slim taillights and a curved windshield with a roof spoiler will appear.
