In contrast to Crysta, which uses an Innovative International Multipurpose Vehicle (IMV) platform, Hycross is built on the framework of the TNGA-C platform. The monocoque body of Hycross, which gives it a front-wheel drive setup, is another marking difference as compared to Crysta’s ladder-on-frame chassis, which lets it use a rear-wheel drive setup. However, the framework of the chassis used in Crysta gives it the additional advantage of having a tough and more rugged body, as compared to the monocoque setup. Yet, apparently, a monocoque body has better on-road dynamics and is far more refined, thereby making it a wonderful driving experience for the one driving Hycross. The comfort is unmatched.
