Toyota Innova Crysta is now almost 4 years old in the Indian market and will be soon due for a facelift. Here's a rendering showcasing the changes that car could receive
Toyota launched the Innova Crysta in the country back in 2016. It is one of the best selling cars of the Japanese manufacturer and has recently been updated with BS-6-compliant engines. But the MPV is now due for a mid-cycle refresh. In simpler words; a facelift is on its way. Here’s a digital rendering of the facelifted Innova Crysta that gives us a fair idea of what all changes the car would feature on its exterior.
The rendering has been made by IA Design and depicts the front 3 quarters of the car. The changes on the front fascia of the car include a new bumper with skid plate and a big-wide air dam. Moving upwards, there’s an addition of a new super-slim grille that holds the Toyota logo in place. The headlamps are redesigned as well and are bigger than those seen on the current car. They get dual-element LED DRLs as some of the international Toyota models. With this front face, the Toyota Innova Crysta facelift will fall in line with other Toyota products sold internationally. On the sides, however, the only change is the new design for the alloy wheels.
Toyota Innova Crysta facelift will wear a family-oriented design theme.
The Toyota Innova Crysta is quite popular around private car buyers as well as around fleet operators and cab aggregators. This is courtesy of Innova’s placement in the market in terms of pricing and dimensions. With its price ranging between Rs. 15.37 lakh – Rs. 24.06 lakh, it competes with the higher variants of Marrazzo and the low-end variants of the Kia Carnival. Also, the Innova Crysta is big enough to accommodate 7-8 occupants in utmost comfort.
Toyota offers the Innova Crysta with 2 engine options – 2.7L petrol and 2.4L turbo-diesel. The former produces 164 BHP/ 245 Nm and can be had mated to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque-converter automatic transmission. The diesel engine, on the other hand, whips out 148 BHP/ 343 Nm. The transmission options available with the diesel engine are a 5-speed MT and a 6-speed AT.
