The automatic variants will be ideal for consumers who are looking for comfortable driving dynamics and undertake both city commuting and long drives. The company is also considering launching petrol variants of the MPV at a later stage.
During the recent 2016 Indian Auto Expo, Toyota unveiled the Innova Crysta and one of the models showcased also incorporated a 2.8-litre GD diesel motor, which is capable of producing 177 PS of power output. This model will be ideal for consumers who are looking for an MPV with powerful performance, and it is expected that the new Innova Crysta may be launched featuring this powerplant. There is, however, no confirmation about the more powerful diesel variant as yet.
This generation of the Toyota Innova Crysta finds its foundation in the same platform that underpins the next generation of the Toyota Fortuner and, taking into consideration the features that Crysta will be offered with, it is expected that this generation of Innova will be India’s first-ever premium MPV. Moreover, Toyota has also ended the production of its last gen Innova.
