The automotive industry is evolving by the day, so are the choices of the buyers. While a large number of customers in India used to ignore automatic transmission in cars for various reasons, the emerging reports suggest that the preference is also seeing some changes these days. And the latest example of this is the sales of the new avatar of Toyota's popular MPV, Innova.
Innova Crysta has garnered positive response in the market since its launch and has raked in over 30,000 bookings. According to Financial Express, about 50 per cent sales of Innova Crysta are from the automatic variants. It is also said that more than 95 per cent have been bought for personal use.
Innova Crysta is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the petrol variant is priced at Rs. 13.72 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the diesel has a price tag of Rs. 13.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
Under the hood, Innova Crysta petrol is powered by an in-line 4-cyl 2.7-litre unit that can churn out 164bhp at 5,200 rpm and 250Nm of torque at 4,000rpm and the diesel variants of the Innova Crysta are sold with 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engines.
The 2,393cc diesel engine develops 148bhp of power and 243Nm of torque, while the 2,755cc mill churns out 172bhp and 360Nm of torque. The transmission is taken care of by a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox.
