Can this be done at home or only at service Center? What steps were followed?

Can be done only at service center. You need to connect to OBD2 port and enable it, similar to how Skoda/VW owners enable hidden features with 3rd party tuners. Only difference is that it's free and Toyota will do it for you.

I got them from a local accessory shop in Gurgaon. Had called them in advance to ensure availability. The entire set costed me INR 5000.

Does the mat block the accelerator or break? The dealer warned me about this.

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

Quick update. Yesterday did a 300km road trip to Igatpuri and around Nashik. The car was fully loaded with 7 people. This was the first time driving it for such a long distance continuously, and also driving a hybrid car for such a long distance.

So sharing my observations:

1. This time I decided to try to drive it like a normal car and just forget about the hybrid driving style which I was familiar with as much as I can.
2. And by driving it like that I just missed one thing while driving the entire time, diesel and it's Torque.
3. I just understood that it's a different kind of driving style which must be adopted to get the maximum out of this powertrain
4. I just miss the effortless nature of diesel for the first time, I don't know why exactly but it is what it is. I think it's just my first time experiencing a CVT.
5. Don't get me wrong. This hybrid power train also feels effortless to drive but driving a diesel is just different kind of effortless nature that can't be matched by any petrol or hybrid powertrain.
7. I have driven Crysta and also XUV5OO and Scorpio all diesel quite a lot and as hycross was our first big petrol car, and before that I have also rarely driven any petrol cars as most cars in my family were all diesel, and for the first time I understood that a petrol engine just can't match the performance and drivability of a diesel engine.
6. Steering is a delight and butter smooth to operate at all speeds.
7. Even at higher speeds the car feels very stable and planted.
8. Overall average came to about 14kmpl.

They called me to confirm whether my variant is 7 seater or 8 seater.

It's fits properly and quality seems okay. Should easily last 5 years.

On fitting, please note that for front seats, there are other mats which extends upwards into the center console. However this one doesn't.

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

Hi,

I am expecting allocation of ZX(O) - Alegha Black soon. Previously I had received a timeline of July 2024 for the same. Will go and speak to the dealer to find out details.

Wonder if this is the result of additional shift/ production. I would be keen on e20 compliance. I hear on this forum that vehicles manufactured post April-2023 have an e20 sticker on fuel lid. Is it just a sticker or is it on the manual as well? Or possibly, having a sticker is sufficient to validate e20 compliance?

Thanks.

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

PSA:

I have been reading the manual and found that you can set the key in low-power mode. This saves key battery. I have had my spare keys die even before using them. This is a welcome feature. Would recommend everyone to set their spare key to low power mode.

The online manual is a pain in the neck. I prefer sitting in the car and exploring (with a physical manual). The mobile manual is difficult to navigate. The web version keeps logging out, and needs VIN number + OTP to access. My bank accounts are easier to access!!

Re: Toyota Innova Hycross Review

The inevitable addition to the garage happened. Took delivery of a Pearl White ZX(0) on May 29. Iím already inching closer to a 1000 kms. Fortunately, I did not have to wait a ridiculous 12-18 months to acquire one.

Toyota Innova Hycross Review-img_2093.jpeg

When the launch happened, I was very occupied with work. After the price reveal, I knew this would do well and I was expecting wait times to be around 3-4 months. I wanted to buy one in the 2023-24 financial year, so I thought Iíll book later. To my surprise, the demand was way over the production capacity of Toyota. Iíve read online that they stopped taking new bookings. I thought this was a marketing gimmick and drove to the showroom to book one. Surprise surprise SA did not take my booking. He said even if I take your booking, I have no idea when I can deliver the car. Walked away in disbelief.

The next day, I test drove the Kodiaq and was really impressed with every aspect of the car, apart from the efficiency. Test drove on my usual route and the car returned 6.9kmpl. It was a bit hard to digest considering my running is going to significantly increase from the next year. A diesel kodiaq wouldíve been nice.

Moving on, a good friend of mine booked the ZX(0) Pearl White on launch day. His delivery was going to be around mid May. He knew that I wasnít able to book one. He called towards the end of the first week of May saying heís planning on cancelling his booking and wanted to get the Fortuner instead. He asked if I was willing to take delivery next week and of course I said YES. Hycross is the first car weíve purchased without even sitting in one, let alone test drive the car. Sorted my finances quickly and Mody Toyota were nice enough to transfer the booking to my firms name. Did the PDA on May 20. I was a bit skeptical to buy the pearl white. When we purchased our Fortuner in 2018, I was confused between the two whites. Luckily, both of them were at their yard. The pearl white had a yellow hue to it. None in the family liked it and we booked the super white. I asked the SA if I can get the super white hycross and he gave me a look I can never forget. It felt like I was the getting the first corona vaccine in the world. Soo precious. Such was the buildup given by the SA. Tbh, I still canít believe a 40L car has an 18 month waiting period. Fortunately, the pearl white of the hycross is a shiny white. I liked the pearl white over the super white this time. Damn, I got lucky with the delivery and the colour. PDA done. Everything was good. All set and sorted. Took delivery on May 29.

Toyota Innova Hycross Review-img_2095.jpeg

Other owners of the hycross in this thread have already mentioned everything one needs to know. Efficiency has been in line with the Autocar results. First full tank gave me an average of 12.xx kmpl. Tbh, I was expecting more than 15 considering other owners have been getting 18-20 kmpl in the forum. Usage has been 100% city with a bunch of late night drives where the car showed 18 kmpl. Of course, the AC is switched on all the time. You have to be mega gentle with the throttle for the car to drive on EV mode. The more you coast, the more efficient it is. I feel one has to be a very sedate driver to achieve high efficiency numbers. You just cannot drive the hycross like a regular ICE. I have a 700 km drive planned to Vijaywada next week. Curious to see how the CVT performs on highways.

Iíd really appreciate if someone can tell me how to switch off the damn ADAS. Almost caused an accident by steering the car towards a biker . Lane control is switched on by default. How can I use regular cruise control? Iíve always wanted to start my own thread and my ownership of the Hycross will be my first. Will get in to detail in my thread. Thank you.

Cheers!

You can deactivate them by pressing the top right most two buttons on the steering wheel. Also if you play with the mode on the center cruise control panel (not the MODE given below), you can figure out between adaptive cruise control. It never gave any headache to me personally even on roads that wasn't divided for the opposite side traffic. But hey even Tesla makes mistakes so we can expect hiccups here and there

Congratulations on your PW Hycross mate!
