Toyota Innova Crysta was in a dire need of getting a facelift because manufacturers like Kia and MG Motors launched their MPVs or 6-seaters and it’s been 4 years since the Innova Crysta was first launched. MG launched the MG Hector Plus while the Kia launched the Carnival. Both of which looks more premium and attractive than Toyota’s Innova Crysta. Knowing this, Toyota was already working on the mid-life facelift for the Innova Crysta. The facelift has already been launched in Indonesia and will soon be launched in India.
We have already covered the details about what changes Toyota will be bringing. You can read about it by clicking here. There will be an updated bumper and a faux skid plate which will make the Innova Crysta look more aggressive than the current one. At the side, you get new 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. There are also new LED headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps which seamlessly meets with the chrome piece that is integrated into the grille itself.
The interior of the Innova Crysta is not heavily updated by Toyota. It will get a slightly tweaked instrument cluster and some better quality materials. However, the highlight of the interior will be a new 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system which will have support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Toyota will also be adding features like a 360-degree camera which will make parking the MPV much easier and an air purifier which will purify the cabin’s air. It will continue to get safety equipment like 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Vehicle stability control, Hill-start assist, emergency brake signal and much more.
Speaking of the updates, the Innova Crysta’s engine will not see any changes. It will continue to get a 2.7-litre petrol engine and 2.4-litre diesel engine in their BS6 compliant form. The 2.7-litre petrol engine will produce 166 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 245 Nm. It will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard or 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential Shift. The 2.4-litre turbocharged diesel engine produces 150 PS of max power and 343 Nm of peak torque if you get the 5-speed manual gearbox or 360 Nm of peak torque if you opt for the 6-speed automatic transmission with Sequential Shift.
We are expecting Toyota to soon launch the facelift of the Innova Crysta because recently the facelift was spied at a dealer’s yard. So, we can also expect that the pre-booking of the Innova Crysta Facelift should start soon. From the spy shot, we can see that India’s facelift is quite similar to the one found in Indonesia.
We can expect the price of the Innova Crysta Facelift to increase by Rs. 50,000. So, the prices of the 2021 Innova Crysta should start from Rs. 16 lakhs ex-showroom and go all the way up to Rs. 25 lakhs ex-showroom. There is also a chance that Toyota introduces the more sporty Touring Sport variant down the line which is currently discontinued in India.
