Both MPVs looks entirely different in terms of looks. While the Crysta had more of an MPV looks, the Hycross with its upright grille and raised bonnet looks more like an SUV. The design of the Hycross looks more modern than the Crysta and does not resemble the previous version. It is a generation change and the Hycross does look like a brand new vehicle.

In terms of size, Toyota Hycross is 4,755 mm long and 1,850 mm wide. This is slightly more than the Innova Crysta. Innova Crysta had a premium look on the road but, we feel that the Hycross will offer more of an imposing look because of its SUV like design. The Innova Crysta and Hycross both have the same height but, the wheelbase of Innova Hycross is 100 mm more than the older Crysta.
