The long awaited replacement for Toyota's extremely MPV, the Innova, will arrive in India next month as the Japanese car maker looks all set to launch the all new Innova Crysta in India on May 3, 2016.
Toyota had already started accepting bookings for the Innova Crysta way back in February, a few days after the Crysta made its Indian debut at the 2016 Auto Expo In Delhi. Customers interested in the new Crysta can book their MPV for a sum of Rs. 50,000.
The Innova Crysta has the same wheelbase as the outgoing Innova at 2,750 mm. Length, Width and Height have increased by 150mm, 70mm and 35mm respectively. The Innova Crysta measures in at 4,735mm (length), 1,830mm (width) and 1,795 mm (height).
Underneath the hood of the Innova Crysta are two rather large diesel powerplants.
The smaller of the two is a 2.4-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 148bhp and 343Nm of torque while the larger 2.8-litre 4-cylinder diesel produces 176bhp and 360Nm of torque.
A smaller petrol engine is also currently under consideration specifically for the Delhi NCR market where diesel engines above 2,000cc are currently banned.
The Innova Crysta is available in three different trim levels, GX, VX and ZX. The 5-speed manual gearbox is available with only the GX and VX variants while the base GX and top-end ZX variant will be available with the 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Design wise, the Crysta features a chrome grille with dual slats flanked by angular sweptback headlamps. The rear of the car has been flattened out and the only distinctive features are the boomerang shaped tail-lamps. Other features on the car include ABS with EBD.
The new Innova Crysta is expected to be priced between Rs. 20 to 25 lakhs ex-showroom, when it finally drives on to Indian roads in May.
