Alright, here we go. The mega-hit Innova Crysta has just hit the modify button, and the results are very impressive. The luxury MPV has been given a nip and tuck on the outside bu KitUp!, the folks best known for making body kits. It’s just not the body kit alone that’s changed on this vehicle.
The Innova gets a revised front grille and bumper extensions at the front and rear. These extensions give the MPV a more car-like look through the lowered stance. 18 inch wheels fill up the wheel wells quite nicely while the roof gets a piano black finish for that all-important contrast finish.
The flanks get side skirts, again doing their bits to lower the vehicle, and make it look more car than van. At the rear, quad exhaust finishers and twin spoilers are the major changes. DRLs surround the fog lamps, which now gets LED bulbs. These changes wrap up the exterior makeover of the Innova Crysta.
On the inside, the hugely comfortable MPV gets new seats even as the original leather seats’ finish has been retained to maintain the stock look. Door trims get perforated leather to boost the luxury quotient. The rear passengers get a entertainment system with individual, seat back mounted monitors.
The custom audio system features better speakers and a sub-woofer. The engine remains untouched. Toyota offers the Innova Crysta with two turbo diesel engine options: a 2.4 liter-4 cylinder motor that makes 148 Bhp-343 Nm, and a 2.8 liter-4 cylinder motor putting out 172 Bhp-360 Nm.
A 5 speed manual gearbox is standard on the smaller motor while the larger engine gets a 6 speed automatic gearbox as standard. A 2.7 liter petrol motor will soon be added as the third engine option. It’ll make 164 Bhp-245 Nm, and is likely to be offered with 5 speed manual and 6 speed automatic transmission options.
