Reliability has become the second name for Toyota Innova Crysta in Indian market. It has been in the market for over a decade and the popularity for this car does not seem to decrease. Even after so many years of its launch, there is no other vehicle in the segment that can compete against Toyota Innova Crysta. Toyota Innova Crysta is popular among buyers for its comfort, reliability and low cost of maintenance. We have several type 1 Innova’s in several parts of the country that are still running without any engine issues. Here we have the video of a person who bought his third Innova Crysta.
The video has been uploaded by Rajni Chaudhary on her YouTube channel. The owner of the Toyota Innova Crysta had bought two Innova Crysta MPV’s in the past but, he had to sell them off due to various reasons. He has now bought his third Innova Crysta and he explains why he finalised this MPV once again.
One of the main selling point for Innova Crysta is its ride comfort. The owner mentions that he did a non-stop run from Bhutan to New Delhi in an Innova Crysta and he did not feel uncomfortable or had the urge to stop anywhere to stretch his body. Second reason why he bought Innova Crysta is because of his family. He tried several cars and SUVs but, his family was not convinced. They finally decided to buy a Fortuner but, then his daughter were not happy with it. It was because of them he bought the Innova Crysta.
In the past he bought Innova Crysta diesel manual base variant but, it lacked features and he sold it after driving for an year. next year he bought top-end petrol automatic Innova Crysta but, it was not fun to drive like the diesel. He sold the Petrol automatic and now bought the top-end diesel automatic version which comes with all the features.
Owner mentions that the car costed him around Rs 29 lakh on-road. So far he is satisfied with the fuel economy as it returns around 17-18 kmpl on a highways and 12-13 kmpl on city roads. He did not go for a lower variant because he wanted the convenience of an automatic and also wanted the punch from a diesel engine.
Toyota launched facelifted version of Innova Crysta last year and it came with several cosmetic changes and upgrades. The Innova Crysta now offered a touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other than this, Innova Crysta continues to offer captain seats, premium and comfortable looking interiors, leather wrapped upholstery, ambient lights and many other SUVs.
