Observations on Innova Hycross 8-seater by a 2016 Jazz owner
Build quality is reasonably good and on par with the current Crysta.
BHPian varunswnt recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Hycross VX 8 seater bench variant in Super White is on display at Sonak Toyota, Bavdhan, Pune.
I did look around and sat in all 3 rows in the display VX variant but didn’t take a test drive as I have no immediate plans.
I am 5ft 7inch and currently drive a 2016 Jazz 1.2 VX MT. I have also been driven around in Crysta owned by close relatives. Here are my observations and not in any particular order.
- Huge road presence and sitting on the top feeling rather than sitting in. Massive size and length.
- Acres of cabin space all around and a very airy feeling cabin with large glass all around.
- Usable and practical 3rd-row seats with decent knee room for average-built Indian (up to 5.8 height).
- Good view from IRVM.
- Almost zero blind spot from A-pillar due to good placement of ORVMs and quarter window. A-pillar too is a little far from the driver.
- Build quality is reasonably good and on par with the current Crysta. Very heavy bonnet. Very little flex in body panels.
- Better Front passenger knee room compared to Crysta.
- Nicely sized and comfortably placed front armrest.
- The Centre console looks good and is imposing. I am not referring to infotainment but that entire centre console with gear stick, auto-ac controls and other switches.
- Huge slabs of hard plastics on door panels and dashboard. The plastic texture is a big letdown in getting that rich premium feel.
- No glossy plastics on door panels anywhere.
- 2nd-row door panels have flex owing to the retractable sunshade mechanism
- Missing backlit switches on all doors.
- Inner chrome door handles and lock unlock buttons are a straight lift from Crysta.
- Lack of tactile and rich feel on buttons.
- Depressing non-led yellow lights all around the cabin and awkward-looking ambient light strips.
- Only single light in the boot.
- The bench seat armrest is not at its natural height and is sloping downward. I was not comfortable with my hand placement.
- Sliding and tilting the middle row does not allow big cargo space for that house to shift or bringing furniture from the market.
- That empty engine bay look and visible hollow fender panels.
- Roofliner is not a fabric type.
- The steering wheel size is smaller compared to Crysta.
- Leather quality on the Steering wheel.
- Door thuds similar to Crysta. Need a little push to close them properly.
- Heavy boot door.
- Fit and finish all around.
- Seat fabric and texture.
