Excellent suv in this class: Very stylish and luxury vehicle
The all new Innova Crysta is a perfect SUV. The Toyota Innova Crysta looks a lot more premium compared to the outgoing Innova. The styling is similar to Toyota models available internationally. It follows the same sharp design theme. There are large headlamps that house projector headlights. The chrome strips inside the lamp neatly flow into the upper section of the front grille like we’ve seen in the Corolla. The large front grille is part of the new Toyota family face and follows a hexagonal pattern. This new design has been seen in the Camry and will soon adorn almost every new Toyota in the future. The imposing grille adds to Crysta’s presence. The indicators and fog lamps sit together in the lower section of the bumper and also receive chrome detailing. The hood is higher and sculpted aggressively. The silhouette of the Crysta reminds one of the previous Innova but then again, it still is an MPV. The sides are rather flat and there aren’t many definition lines. The overall length has increased by 180mm, mostly in the longer overhangs – the wheelbase hasn’t changed. The quarter window is cut diagonally – it reminds me of the Mitsubishi Outlander – and it is the only design highlight when viewed from the side. 17-inch wheels are much larger (15-inchers on the old one) than before and fill up the wheel arch well. super dashboard, The India-spec Innova Crysta gets two all-new engine options. The 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre DOHC common-rail diesel will be offered with a 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic respectively. The BSIV ready engines produce a segment highest 150PS and 174PS at 3400rpm peak torque, meanwhile, is an equally impressive 343Nm (1,400-2,800rpm) and 360Nm (1,200-3,400rpm). That’s equal and more torque, respectively than the 3.0-litre Toyota Fortuner. The power and torque increase is a massive 45-50 percent! So despite the gain in kerb weight by about 200kg, the power to weight ratio is higher than before,the Innova Crysta continues to use the body-on-frame chassis part of Toyota’s new generation architecture developed especially for the Innova, Hilux and Fortuner. This new chassis is more rigid than before and is slightly heavier as well. The suspension has been upgraded too and gets stronger springs. The suspension and the new chassis has improved ride quality but it can still be a bit harsh over speed breakers and potholes. Body roll has reduced and the hydraulic steering is sharper and lighter to operate. Steering weight at parking speeds, though, is on the heavier side. Ground clearance also seems to be higher than before – Toyota didn’t have a number for us at press time.
