Yesterday, on October 12, 2023, Toyota officially introduced the new Innova Cross model to the Vietnamese market. This model has 2 versions, petrol and hybrid, with prices of 810 million and 990 million VND, respectively.
The price difference between the two versions of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 is very clear. So, what are the features that the petrol version of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 lacks compared to the hybrid version? Let’s find out in the following article.
Comparison of the exterior features of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol and hybrid versions
As reported, the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 is developed based on the global TNGA design platform instead of the ladder frame like the previous generation. Therefore, the size of the car also changes significantly. In both versions, this mid-size MPV has dimensions of 4,755 x 1,850 x 1,790 mm and a wheelbase of 2,850 mm. However, the petrol version has a higher ground clearance, reaching 170 mm, while the corresponding figure for the hybrid version is 167 mm.
In the Vietnamese market, the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 has standard exterior features such as automatic on/off LED headlights with follow-me-home mode and manually adjustable cornering angle, combined LED taillights, front LED fog lights, electrically foldable/retractable/turn signal-integrated mirrors, electric trunk,…
However, the petrol version only uses 17-inch alloy wheels with a less prominent design, while the hybrid version is equipped with 18-inch multi-spoke wheels. In addition, the hybrid version also has another distinguishing feature, which is LED daytime running lights with turn signal on the front of the car.
Comparison of the interior features of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol and hybrid versions
Similar to the exterior, the interior of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 in both versions does not have many differences. The most noticeable difference is that the petrol version comes with a 3-row seating layout with 8 seats. In the hybrid version, the car only has a 7-seater interior with 2 captain seats in the middle. These seats have more luxurious features such as adjustable inclination and electric footrest. In addition to these seats, the hybrid version also has a panoramic sunroof.
The remaining features of the two versions are quite similar, such as the 3-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with 4-way manual adjustment, auto-dimming and anti-glare mirrors, a 7-inch TFT information display, leather seats, 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, 4-way manual-adjustable passenger seat, 10.1-inch touchscreen center display, wireless phone connectivity, automatic air conditioning, 6-speaker sound system, electronic parking brake, temporary auto hold function,…
Comparison of the safety features of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol and hybrid versions
In contrast to the exterior and interior features, the active safety features in the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol version are significantly poorer than the hybrid version. The petrol version only has 6 airbags, a 360-degree camera, ABS with EBD, EBA, ESC, TSC, hill start assist, 8 parking sensors, and tire pressure warning.
On the other hand, the hybrid version has the advanced driver assist system Toyota Safety Sense, which includes pre-collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. The blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert features are also only available in the Toyota Innova Cross Hybrid 2024.
Comparison of the engines of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol and hybrid versions
The next significant difference between the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 petrol version and the hybrid version lies in the engine. The petrol version uses a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 172 horsepower and a peak torque of 205 Nm. The engine is paired with a Direct shift CVT automatic transmission and has an average fuel consumption of 7.2 liters/100 km according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
On the other hand, the hybrid version uses a gasoline engine with a maximum power of 150 horsepower, combined with a powerful 111 horsepower electric motor and a CVT automatic transmission. The average fuel consumption of the hybrid version only stops at 4.92 liters/100 km, which is significantly more fuel-efficient than the petrol version.
In conclusion, through the above comparisons, it can be seen that there is a clear difference in equipment between the 2 versions of the Toyota Innova Cross 2024. For those who value safety features and fuel-efficient engines, the hybrid version is perhaps a more suitable choice. Meanwhile, the Toyota Innova Cross 2024 will be for customers who only need an MPV with spacious interior and sufficient equipment to serve their family.
