Toyota's new offering, the Innova Crysta MPV, currently commands a waiting period of up to three months in India, said the company on Friday, June 1. The Innova Crysta, the new avatar of Toyota's much-acclaimed MPV, the Innova, has been earning tremendous response from auto lovers in the country and has received over 20, 000 bookings.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) sold 7,259 units of the Innova Crysta in the month of its launch in May this year. TKM sold only 5,028 units of the last gen Innova in May 2015. The Innova Crysta also became a best-seller in the UV segment in its first month itself. Although Toyota is yet to release the sales figures of the new Innova for June, the company said that it sold a total of 13,502 units in the domestic market in the last month, registering a 29% growth over its domestic sales in the corresponding period last year.
Toyota Innova Crysta has been priced at Rs. 13.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). 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 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engines. While the 2,393cc diesel engine develops 148bhp of power and 243Nm of torque, the 2,755cc mill churns out 172bhp and 360Nm of torque. The engines come mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Toyota is also said to be considering a petrol mill for the new Innova to beat the diesel car ban in Delhi NCR. The soon-to-be-launched petrol Innova Crysta is likely to be powered by an all-new 2.7-litre unit, which is expected to churn out 165bhp of power and 245Nm of peak torque. The transmission in the petrol-powered Innova Crysta is likely to be taken care of by a six-speed manual gearbox.
