The feature list includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation, paddle shifters with the automatic, 7 airbags, vehicle stability control system, brake assist, hill-hold assist control, ABS, EBD and more such features in the higher variants.

The BS6 compliant Toyota Innova Crysta, which was launched recently in the Indian market received a price hike of around Rs 1.5 lakhs. Surprisingly, the price of the BS6 compliant Toyota Fortuner remains the same. The Fortuner remains the best-selling vehicle in the segment and has been on the top of the sales chart since its launch in the Indian market. It is currently in its second-generation and takes on the likes of Ford Endeavour, Isuzu MUX, Mahindra Alturas, and more. Ford will soon launch the BS6 compliant Endeavour with a downsized 2.0-litre diesel engine to meet the emission norms. The small 2.0-litre dual-turbocharged engine of the Endeavour will come powered by a 10-speed automatic transmission in the Indian market, which may translate into higher fuel efficiency.
