Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced the launch of the new Innova Crysta, which comes with a host of unmatched features and a new connected infotainment system. Starting with the exteriors, the new Innova Crysta gets a cooler and tougher exterior with features such as a new trapezoidal piano-black grille with chrome ornamentation that smoothly merges into the headlamps. When you have a quick glance, you will notice some new design changes like a sharper front bumper design and diamond-cut alloy wheels for a contemporary look.
But what about safety?
Toyota is known to manufacture some of the most durable and safe vehicles. The new Innova Crysta also comes with best-in-class features such as seven airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, and Hill Start Assist. Safety has been further bolstered with front clearance sonar (with MID display) to prevent collisions while parking in tight spaces and offer a stress-free driving experience.
The Toyota Innova will rival against other seven and eight seaters in the Indian markets. One of the chief rivals of the Toyota Innova Crysta will be the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, which is priced a lot lower than the Innova. To attract customers, Toyota Motors have focused to increase the luxury quotient, for this, the interiors now get a fresh look with the option of new upholstery color of Camel Tan in the ZX grade. Apart from this, in line with the latest trend of connected infotainment, a new and larger Smart Playcast touchscreen audio with Android Auto and Apple Carplay has also been introduced in the upgraded Innova. Besides, customers can now enjoy vehicle connectivity features such as real-time vehicle tracking, geofencing, last parked location, and many more as optional accessories in the new Innova Crysta.
