Toyota India plans to increase its product line up soon. How so? In any case, the most up-to-date information suggests that Toyota will introduce the Corolla Cross to the Indian market. It will most likely be an MPV with the capacity to accommodate seven people. Details on the Toyota Corolla Cross are provided further down the page.
Toyota Corolla Cross Details
At the Indian Motor Expo’23, Toyota displayed the Corolla Cross. Many people were impressed by the shown model. More so, there is no Toyota offering in the mid-size SUV market. The sales of vehicles like the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Meridian are booming. So, it is understandable that you would like to use Corolla Cross. So what exactly will it be? Now, the rumour mill has it that the Innova Hycross platform will serve as the foundation. Nonetheless, the chassis will be reduced in size to meet segment requirements.
The 7-seat configuration is another selling point Toyota will emphasise for this vehicle. Indeed, the Hycross’s interior will feature many of the same components as the exterior. The motor and drivetrain, meanwhile, will remain unchanged. This suggests that the Corolla Cross will eventually receive the 2.0-liter gasoline and gasoline-hybrid engine options. The question of whether or not this engine will have the same power output remains unanswered. Toyota may redesign the exterior with more rough styling details to make it look more like an SUV.
Toyota’s Inonova Hycross price increases are quite recent. An more version was included in the update. It’s clear that Toyota is targeting the Indian market with this move. Hence, with the right marketing, the Corolla Cross has the potential to become a best-seller. In the meanwhile, we anticipate a launch date in India in early 2024.
