Toyota Innova Crysta base variant modified to look & feel like a higher variant

Toyota Innova Crysta is currently one of the most popular MPVs in the market. It has been in the market for a very long time and the popularity doesn’t seem to diminish. Over the years we have seen several modifications of this MPV. One of the most common type of modification that we have seen on Innova is converting the rear cabin into a lounge with several luxury features. Toyota Innova and Crysta have been popular in the market for their comfortable ride, reliability and low cost of maintenance. Here we have a base variant Innova Crysta that has been beautifully modified to look like a higher variant.

The video has been uploaded by CAR SONICS on their YouTube channel. The video shows all the modifications that are made to this MPV. Starting with the front, the base variant does not get any fog lamps. They have installed aftermarket LED fog lamps and the headlights are also LED now. The front grille now gets chrome outlines which is similar to the one seen in higher variants.

Coming to the side profile, there is chrome finishes rain visor which starts from A pillar and goes all the way to the third row glass. There is even a chrome side beading and lower window chrome garnish installed on this Innova Crysta. Another addition is the footboard which helps occupants to easily get into the cabin. They have also installed a roof rail on this Crysta.

Moving to the rear, there are chrome garnishes around the tail lights and also the registration plate and boot lip. There is chrome applique running between the tail lights as well. It also gets a PU bumper at the rear. On the inside, this Toyota Innova Crysta gets Artico leather seat covers. The colour of the seat cover looks very premium and material of same shade is used on the door pads as well. As we move inside, there are wooden panel inserts on dashboard and door panels.

The steering is wrapped in original leather and it also comes with floor mats and illuminated scuff plates. They have also installed a wireless phone charging pas on this Innova Crysta. The touchscreen on the Innova Crysta was retained but, the unit now also shows feed from the 360 degree camera that was installed afterwards. There are cameras installed under the ORVMs and both at the front and rear of the car. These cameras also show feed whenever the driver uses indicator.

The work done on this Innova Crysta looks pretty neat. Toyota launched the facelifted version of Toyota Innova Crysta in the market late last year. The MPV received minor cosmetic changes and an updated infotainment system as part of the update. It is still available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version of the MPV is powered by a 2.7 litre engine. It generates 164 Bhp and 245 Nm of torque. The diesel version is powered by a 2.4 litre unit generating 148 Bhp and 360 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel are available with manual and automatic transmission options.
