All is well with Toyota's newly-launched Innova Crysta in India as the MPV garners over 20,000 bookings within two weeks of its entry into the market. Toyota launched the new Innova Crysta in the country on May 13. The company had opened bookings for the vehicle prior to its launch and it has been witnessing an overwhelming response for the new avatar of the much-acclaimed MPV, the Innova.
Priced at Rs. 13.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai), Toyota Innova Crysta currently commands a waiting period of up to four months, IANS reported. The new Innova is offered in two grades with an automatic transmission (Zx and Gx) and four grades with manual transmission (Zx, Vx, Gx and G).
It measures 4,735mm in length, 1,830mm in width, 1,795mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,750mm. Under the bonnet of the Innova Crysta are a 2.4-litre and a 2.8-litre diesel engines. While the 2,393cc diesel engine will develop 148bhp of power and 243Nm of torque, the 2,755cc mill will churn out 172bhp and 360Nm of torque. The engines come mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The MPV comes in three new colours — garnet red, white pearl crystal shine and avant-garde bronze — along with the existing silver, grey and super white and features SRS Airbags, vehicle stability control (VSC), hill assist control (HSC), antilock braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and brake assist (BA).
Toyota is also considering to roll out petrol mill for the new Innova to beat the diesel car ban in Delhi NCR. Toyota Kirloskar Motor's marketing director N Raja said that the ban is affecting the sale of Toyata's Fortuner and Innova.
"As the ban has been affecting our sales over the last six months, we hope the Supreme Court will consider our pleading and lift the ban," IANS quoted Raja as saying.
