Toyota Innova Crysta has showcased it capabilities on the poor roads at times. However, here's an Innova Crysta that can be seen wading through water, where most C-sedan get submerged with ease.
Toyota Innova is one of the most successful vehicles that the Japanese car manufacturer has ever brought to India. After one decade and a half in the market, it is now sold with a Crysta suffix. However, it remains to be the most popular and the leading vehicle of the MPV segment. Toyota Innova's highly-appraised qualities are its high reliability, durability, and good resale value, which are cherished by the Indian customers.
Toyota Innova Crysta is the leading vehicle in the MPV segment
Technically speaking, an MPV is not well appreciated when it comes to performance or off-road capability. In fact, MPV’s strength lies in its provision of comfort and convenience. Rather than being competent off-roaders or performance-focused vehicles, MPVs are more of family vehicles. It is a widely-accepted description of most MPVs in the market. However, this portrayal does not sit well with the Toyota Innova Crysta. For multiple times, Toyota Innova Crysta has proved itself to be a capable performer. In the following photo, you will see a Toyota Innova Crysta showing its impressive water-wading capability on the flooded streets of Mumbai.
In the picture, the Toyota Innova Crysta is submerged in water. The water level crosses the front grille and headlights. Only the upper part of the grille and the bonnet sits above the water. In this situation, the exhaust system of the Toyota Innova Crysta is clearly drowned in the water. It should be noted that in this picture, there is only the Toyota Innova along with a Tata truck. Despite the massive size of a truck, it looks like the wheels of this truck are dipped well under the water.

Toyota Innova Crysta can confidently cross the deeply flooded streets, thanks to a decent ground clearance of 193 mm. The water wading capacity of the Toyota Innova stands at 500 mm. With good ground clearance and wading capacity, the Toyota Innova must be one of the most capable vehicles when it comes to water wading. However, given its impressive specifications, it is never a good idea to let your car submerged deep in the water. Most importantly, you should not let the water penetrate the exhaust system which could cause serious damage to the engine.

While the petrol engine generates a maximum power of 166 Nm and a peak torque of 245 Nm, the latter, though, makes a rated output of 148 BHP and 343 Nm.
