Facelifted Toyota Innova Crysta SPIED next to the older version

Toyota is ready with the facelifted version of the Innova Crysta and the car is likely to be launched in the coming few months. The images of the facelifted version of the Innova Crysta surfaced online a few days ago. However, these are the first pictures showing the current version of the Innova Crysta and the upcoming model side-by-side. Here are the details.

The pictures are not from India and have been put by T-BHP. However, the Indian-spec Innova Crysta facelift will look the same as this one. Toyota is yet to update the Innova Crysta after it was launched in 2016. However, the changes are not as significant as you may have wished for.

The size of the upcoming Innova Crysta remains similar to the current version of the vehicle. However, it now gets a bigger grille that is finished in dual-tone chrome and black finish. The grille gets five horizontal slats, which is an upgrade from the current two-chrome finish. The shape and size of the headlamps are almost similar to the current version of the Innova Crysta, however, the lights now seem to be extending to merge into the grille.

Toyota has also added a new, aggressive-looking bumper that makes the front-end design busy. It also gets a contrasting black shade for the lower part and the fog lamp housings are now vertically stacked with a triangular black surround. Toyota also offers new alloy wheels with the Innova Crysta facelift. At the rear, there are no major changes as both the vehicles look very similar.

This is the Indonesian-spec Innova Crysta, which is known as the Kijang Innova in the country. The Indian model will largely look similar to this model but there will be a few styling updates that will be for the India-specific market. The pictures also show the cabin of the new Innova Crysta and it looks very similar to the current model, except for a few changes here and there. There will be a full TFT MID in the instrument cluster, a new digital automatic climate control system, new ambient roof lighting system and new LED stop lamp. The vehicle will also get new VSC and a new smart key.

Toyota is unlikely to make any mechanical changes to the vehicle. It will continue to get powered by two engine options. There will be a 2.4-litre diesel engine and a 2.7-litre petrol engine. Toyota offers both manual and automatic transmission options with the diesel engine option while the petrol engine gets only an automatic option.
