Toyota Innova Crysta petrol version’s bookings commence

Toyota Kirloskar Motor India is all ready to launch the petrol version of the all new Innova Crysta MPV to finally solve the diesel ban problem that has been stopping it from entering the Delhi NCR market. Toyota India is going to officially launch the Innova Crysta petrol in the market in the coming week, as per a company dealership. Prior to its market launch, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has commenced the bookings for the same. As per a tweet from Toyota Innova India’s official twitter account, the petrol automatic version of the Crysta is tagged at Rs. 14.7 lakhs ex-showroom.

The new Toyota Innova Crysta petrol will be powered by an in-line 2.7 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine that has the capability to generate a max power of 164 bhp at 5,200 rpm and 250 Nm of top torque at 4,000 rpm. This is the same petrol motor which powers the new generation Innova MPV in the car markets of Middle East. This refined and powerful petrol engine is expected to get paired with a choice of both 5 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic transmission.

The global second generation Toyota Innova has been named as the Innova Crysta for the Indian car market. The petrol version of the Innova Crysta is identical to its diesel counterpart, when design and dimensions and model trims are concerned, with no feature or equipment changes at all, excepting the petrol engine. Similar to the diesel model trims, the soon to launch Innova petrol version will also be offered in three variants of G, V and Z, for sale. The petrol variants are also expected to be priced around Rs. 60,000 lower as compared to the equivalent diesel trims, and this should attract even more buyers.

The new generation Innova Crysta was launched as an all-diesel MPV in the Indian market like its predecessor on 2nd May, 2016, and has received great response from the market despite its more expensive pricing. The diesel version of the Innova Crysta have been garnering great amount of bookings in these two months and has already bagged more than 30,000 bookings. The Innova Crysta diesel variants come powered by 2.4 liter and a 2.8-liter diesel motors, and they currently have waiting period of up to three months.

Toyota India produced 6,000 units of the new generation Innova Crysta in its launch month, but following the increasing demands the company has already increased the MPV’s production to 7,800 units in the month of June. The company managed to sell 8,171 units of the Innova Crysta in June in the domestic car market of India, which made it the bestselling model in the Indian UV segment by outselling the very popular compact SUVs Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

The all new Innova Crysta comes with everything new and improved right from the engines to the chassis. It has also become much more premium now as compared to its predecessor, while flaunting an all new bold design language.
