Toyota has added a new variant to the Innova Crysta’s range. The flashy-looking Touring Sport model now gets a 6 speed manual gearbox option with the 2.4 liter turbo diesel engine. The new variant is priced at 19.6 lakh rupees, ex-showroom Delhi.
The 2.4 liter turbo diesel engine makes 148 Bhp-343 Nm, and is the most popular engine among Innova Crysta buyers. On the non-Touring Sport variants, this engine also gets a 5 speed manual gearbox, which is soon likely to be discontinued as Toyota has now introduced the 6 speed manual gearbox. Shortly, all 2.4 liter diesel engine equipped Crystas could migrate to the new gearbox. The MPV is rear wheel driven.
Apart from the inclusion of the 6 speed manual gearbox, nothing has changed on the Touring Sport version in terms of features and creature comforts. The MPV gets a black grille with a smoked chrome finish and high gloss lower grill. Automatic LED Projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights are standard and so are LED foglamps, body coloured front and rear bumpers with black cladding, and chrome highlights.
Black wheel arch cladding and 17-inch matte black alloy wheels along with chromed door handles, rear spoiler with integrated LED lights and rear defogger are other key features on the MPV. On the inside, a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation function, an idle start/stop function, black trim and contrast red stitching for the leather package are the key changes on the Touring Sport version.
Safety features include 3 airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, vehicle stability control, hill start assist and a reverse parking camera. The automatic variants of the Touring Sport version get additional airbags (7 of them). The Innova Crysta Touring Sport is also available with a 2.7 liter petrol engine (with both 5 speed manual and 6 speed automatic transmissions) and a 2.8 liter diesel engine (with 6 speed manual and automatic gearboxes).
