At this rate, the Innova Hycross hybrid petrol will save you Rs. 10,646 for every 10,000km you drive and these savings will swell up to Rs. 52,729 by the time you cover 50,000. For buyers who covered a lot of distance during the ownership, the Innova Hycross saves you a little over Rs. 1.0 lakh if you cover 1,00,000km and Rs. 2.10 lakh if you cover 2,00,000km.

It’s worth noting that the Innova Hycross will offer much better real-world fuel efficiency in stop-and-go traffic conditions, where it can run exclusively on battery power. Meanwhile, the Innova Crysta diesel-automatic uses a torque converter coupling, which is extremely inefficient and has much lower real-world mileage in stop-and-go traffic. Therefore, the actual cost savings could end up even higher if you mostly drive in slow-moving city traffic.
