Toyota Innova Crysta Spotted Sans Camouflage; Launch Likely in April 2016

It was just last month when Japanese carmaker Toyota unveiled the much awaited Innova Crysta at the Auto Expo 2016. This new generation Innova is set to replace the older model, which recently went out of production in India. While the launch is expected sometime in April 2016, a couple of new Toyota Innova Crystas were recently spotted doing some final test rounds in India without camouflage. This indicates that the carmaker is more than eager to push the car out there at the earliest.

The new Innova will be available in six exterior colour options – Alumina Jade, Attitude Black, Avant Grade Bronze, Dark Gray Mica Metallic, Silver Metallic and Super White. And the Innova Crystas that were recently spotted were in the shades of Metallic Silver and Attitude Black. Also there are no changed made to the MPV’s exterior profile compared to the model we saw at the Auto Expo last month.

The Innova Crysta is essentially a more premium version of the outgoing model and comes equipped with some class leading features as well. The exterior profile of the car is accentuated by a large front grille with dual chrome slats, a stylish pair of large headlamps with projector units, 5-spoke alloy wheels, electronic ORVMs with integrated turn lights and boomerang shaped LED tail lamps at the rear.

On feature front the MPV comes with some exciting new offerings like – premium leather interiors, ambient lighting, automatic climate control power windows, steering-mounted controls, touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, and USB & AUX-IN among others. As far as safety features go the new generation model comes with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, hill-start assist control (HAC), rear parking sensors, etc.

Under the hood the new Innova Crysta comes with two 2 engine options – a 2.0-litre VVT-i petrol and the new 2.4-litre GD diesel. While the petrol motor puts out 137bhp along with 183Nm of peak torque, the diesel unit promises 147bhp and 342Nm (manual) and 360Nm (automatic) of peak torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Considering the new premium nature of the MPV, the Innova Crysta technically has no competition in the Indian market. That said, as far as the complete segment is considered, the new Innova will compete with the likes of Honda Mobilio, Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the upcoming MPV from Hyundai.
