Finally, after being halted for over a year, Toyota has resumed bookings for the Innova Hycross ZX and ZX(O) variants. In addition to this, the company has also hiked the pricing of the top-spec ZX and ZX(O) variants as well. Ever since the bookings were stopped last year, the waiting time for these variants increased to more than 2 years. It seems like the brand will now steadily deliver these extremely in-demand models.

Innova Hycross ZX(O) Selling at Premium

Earlier in March, it was reported by Team BHP that the official bookings were stopped by Toyota. Some dealers in the black market were selling the highly sought-after ZX(O) variant at a premium.

These dealerships and individual dealers were asking Rs 3.5-4 lakh on top of the Rs 35 lakh on-road price of the model. Because of this, many Innova Hycross Hybrid buyers shared their anguish with the brand.

Interested buyers asked why they were being forced to contend with inflated prices and lengthy delays. They added that Toyota should note these activities in the black market and put an end to it.
