The new Toyota Innova Crysta facelift has started reaching dealerships ahead of its price announcement set to happen today. Here are the latest details on the new MPV.
The Toyota Innova Crysta, one of the most popular MPVs in the Indian car market, is all set to receive an update very soon. Right before the launch of theInnova Crysta facelift, the MPV has been spotted completely without any camouflage at the dealership stockyards. Unofficial bookings of the updated Innova Crysta have commenced at some select dealerships.
The set of leaked images of the Toyota Innova Crysta facelift give us a clear idea of how the new MPV looks like at the front, side and rear. Toyota has given the Innova Crysta a couple of styling tweaks to keep it fresh. The major difference that sets it apart from the older-gen Innova is the front grille which features black horizontal slats with chrome/silver surrounds and is in a trapezoid shape.
Another major change on the updated Innova Crysta is the new bumper which accommodates angular fog lamps housing and a new skid plate. Turn indicators have been refreshed as well, seeing the infusion of black garnishes for a more rugged look. At the side, the new MPV boasts of a new alloy wheels design which is the only change in this area. The rear end of the car remains identical to the earlier version.
On the inside, the 2021 Toyota Innova Crysta facelift will receive two new feature additions, including an updated 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity along with front parking sensors offered to the top two trims. Spy pictures reveal the new seat upholstery with Crysta insignia in the updated model. Apart from these above, the interior layout of the new Innova Crysta is similar to the pre-facelifted version.
On the mechanical front, the Toyota Innova Crysta facelift is expected to come with BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engine options. A 2.7-litre petrol engine churns out 164 BHP of max power and 245 Nm of peak torque. The diesel version will be powered by a 2.4-litre oil burner good for 148 BHP and 360 Nm of peak torque. Both the mills will be available with manual and automatic transmissions. Prices for the facelifted Toyota Innova Crysta will be revealed today. It is expected to cost around Rs 50,000 more than the existing model which is currently on sale in between Rs 15.66 – 23.63 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Toyota Innova Crysta will rekindle its competition with the likes of Mahindra Marazzo, MG Hector Plus or the soon-to-be-launched Tata Hexa.
