Toyota Innova Crysta to be launched tomorrow




The Toyota Innova Crysta will be launched for the Indian market tomorrow. This is the second generation for the Japanese automaker’s successful MPV and will be offered with two engines and two gearbox options.We believe that Toyota will price the Innova Crysta in the range of Rs 13 lakh to Rs 20 lakh for the top-of-the-line diesel AT.

Toyota is one of the companies that have managed well to differentiate the Crysta and the older Innova. It gets a new front fascia, featuring a large dual-slat chrome grille, reworked bumper, projectors, and LED daytime running lights. At a singular glance, the side profile might look familiar, but a closer look reveals some important tweaks such as a sharp cut on the last row windows and larger alloy wheels that provides the side profile a mature appeal. The rear has received a touch-up with revised bumper, modern tail lights and a new tailgate design making it more luxurious, spacious and providing a whole new feel to the driver.

While the interiors of the current Innova looks out-dated and lacks almost all the modern equipments, where as cabin of the Crysta gets all the bells and whistles which is expected from a vehicle of this segment and price.
The dash layout is aesthetically appealing and the dual-tone interiors with wood accents come as an icing on the cake. Leather upholstery, Smart Entry and touch-screen infotainment unit with voice command support, and Bluetooth, USB as well as AUX connectivity also makes its way to the Crysta’s cabin (unfortunately most of the features are reserved for the top-end models)

The biggest revision in the Innova Crysta apart from the new interiors, it got new powerplants too. The Crysta will offer two engine options – 2.4- and 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbocharged mills, while the current model only comes with a 2.5-litre unit.

The engines are newer and lighter and thus churn out more power as well as deliver better fuel efficiency. The 2.4-litre engine will put out a max 149 PS of power and 343Nm of peak torque – 49PS and 160Nm more than the current model.
The mill will come coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox and will be offered in five variants. The bigger 2.8-litre engine will make 174PS of peak power along with 360Nm of peak torque. It will come mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox and will be available in two variants. The fuel efficiency figures are yet to be revealed, but we expect it to be on a higher side as against the outgoing model.  
Other features include automatic climate control with rear auto cooler, 7 inch audio system with Navigation, cruise control, power driver seat, one touch tumble for 2nd and 3rd row, smart entry system with Start/Stop button, 17 inch alloy wheels and easy close back door. Crysta will also gain three new colours.
