Toyota Innova Crysta base model’s interior modified to top-end variant’s interior [Video]

Toyota Innova Crysta is a very popular MPV in the Indian market. Despite being in the Indian market for a very long time, it has been selling very well. It is comfortable, has an ample amount of space, is reliable and the cost of maintenance is quite low. People have been customizing the Innova and we have shown some of them on our website as well. Here, we have another example of Innova Crysta in which the shop has taken a base variant and modified it to look like the top-end variant.

The video is uploaded on YouTube by Autorounders and the modifications have also been done by them. The seat covers that are installed in the Innova Crysta are made in-house. The materials for the seat cover are chosen by the owner of the vehicle. There are also other materials and colours on offer. The seat covers are installed by removing the seats.

Some of the inserts of the door pads and dashboard were also removed because the customer wanted wooden inserts. Moreover, the stock roof liner was also removed because the customer wanted galaxy roof liner which we usually see on Rolls Royce vehicles.

The shop has also installed after-market HID fog lamps that come with high beams and low beams. The window beltline is finished in chrome and door visors has been installed. They also installed curtains that can be slid horizontally.  They help in keeping the temperature of the cabin low.

The steering wheel is also wrapped in genuine leather and a wooden insert has been provided on the top part. The upholstery on the centre console has been changed. The gear knob and hand brake have also been wrapped in leather with white stitching.

Overall the work done by the shop looks quite nice. There are not a lot many changes to the exterior but the interior is a big upgrade over the regular Innova. It feels a lot more premium and nice to sit in.
