The all new Toyota Innova Crysta MPV is getting increasingly popular in the Indian car market after it launched in early May this year. The second generation Innova Crysta has not only gained back the crown of the bestselling MPV model in India to the iconic Innova brand, but has also become the top selling model in the entire utility vehicle segment of the country.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (KTM) has been basking in the outstanding response that it has been receiving from the market for the latest-gen Innova. The new Toyota Innova Crysta is become the highest selling Utility Vehicle in the country for the second consecutive month in June, as the model got the top position in its launch month May itself. The Innova Crysta managed to sell 8,171 units in the month of June, while the new MPV model recorded the sale of 7,259 units in the month of May, 2016, after launching on 2nd of the same month.
Moreover, the sale of 8,171 units in the month of June this year marks the highest ever sales that the iconic Toyota Innova has experienced ever since it first launched in India back in 2005. The Toyota Innova launched at a time when there was nothing like it in India, yet it soon became a favorite of the Indian consumers and ever since has been ruling the MPV segment, until the Maruti Ertiga compact segment snatched that title from it. The Innova continued to remain massively popular over a decade’s time and gained an iconic MPV model in the country similar to its global success. It was well expected that the new and all improved Innova Crysta will carry forward the heritage of the Innova brand in India, although some were doubtful about it as it has become all the more expensive this time around.
The Toyota Innova Crysta has proved all the doubts about it wrong and has immerged as all the more popular in its all new avatar. Toyota was selling an average of 5,000 units of the first generation Innova per month in 2015, and the sales volume were dropping every month. The new Innova Crysta has given a much needed boost to not only the Innova image but also to Toyota India’s falling sales.
The Innova Crysta has already bagged more than 30,000 of bookings within just two months of its Indian launch and now comes with a waiting period of up to 3 months. More interestingly, although a pricier vehicle, almost half of the bookings for the Crysta are for the top of the range automatic variant that is tagged at over Rs. 20 lakhs.
The new-gen Toyota Innova Crysta is a more premium, bolder looking an almost an entirely new vehicle as compared to its predecessors. It gets powered by a new 2.4L and 2.8L diesel engines paired to a 5 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic transmission. Toyota will soon start the deliveries of the petrol variant of the Innova Crysta.
