Toyota Innova Crysta Is Back | Available in Diesel-Manual Option Only

India's favourite MPV - Innova Crysta, is back. The debut of newly launched Innova Hycross speculated the presence of Innova Crysta in the Indian Market. So much so that the Innova Crysta nameplate has been put down from the official Toyota website. But today, Toyota India has officially re-introduced Innova Crysta with minor updates. One can book the Innova Crysta at the token amount of Rs 50,000. 

On the design and exterior front, nothing significant has been changed apart from a few minor tweaks in the front fascia of the car. The car now borrowed the front fascia looks from the elder sibling - Fortuner. The decent-looking front grille and redesigned fog lamp enclosures give a fresh appeal to the new 2023 Innova Crysta. Overall, nothing notable has been redesigned. 

Despite the auto manufacturer shifting away from diesel engines, Toyota has reacted in other ways by discontinuing its petrol engine on Innova Crysta. Innova Crysta will now be available in a diesel engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox option only. That's quite a strategic move, as the buyers preferring petrol engines need to opt for Innova Hycross, thus helping Hycross to establish and distinguish itself from the Crysta. The current 2.4-litre diesel engine churns out 150 horses and 343Nm of torque. However, the performance figure might differ to make the engine complaint with the updated BS6 RDE norms. 

Innova Crysta will be available in four trims ( G, GX, VX and ZX) with seven- eight seating configurations. Top-end ZX variant will come with a 7-seat configuration only. The prices are not revealed yet, and it is expected that Toyota will launch Innova Crysta next month.
