Toyota Kirloskar Motors Limited has just unveiled the Innova Crysta, the all-new MPV that replaces the current Innova internationally. In India though, the Crysta could sell with the current version for a while. Toyota hasn’t revealed when exactly the new MPV would be launched here.
From the looks of it, the Innova Crysta would be marketed as a premium vehicle in the best selling MPV’s range, with the current version being decontented and pushed down in terms of price and positioning, as perhaps a cab-only model.
Toyota India didn’t reveal the specifications of the new Innova although it would be safe to assume that the 2.4 liter-4 cylinder GD turbo diesel engine (143 Bhp-349 Nm) would be a standard offering on the new MPV. While international markets also get a 2 liter petrol motor (136 Bhp-185 Nm), it remains to be seen if that engine is offered in India.
What’s confirmed though is a 6 speed automatic gearbox for the diesel engined Innova. A 5 speed manual is also likely to be on offer. The new Innova is much more premium than the older version, which is likely to push up prices. In terms of safety too, the new MPV has a lot more to offer.
