Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has been readying the petrol powered Innova Crysta and the launch of the model is scheduled for the next week, a company dealership has confirmed to International Business Times India. Ahead of the launch, TKM has started accepting bookings for the petrol version. A tweet from official twitter account of Toyota Innova India indicates the petrol automatic version is priced at Rs. 14.7 lakh, ex-showrroom.
The Innova Crsyta petrol will be powered by an in-line 4-cyl 2.7-litre unit that will generate 164bhp at 5,200 rpm and 250Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. This is the same engine that powers the new Innova MPV in the Middle Eastern markets. The engine is expected to be coupled with both five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission.
The design and dimensions of the petrol and diesel variants of Innova Crysta will remain the same. Similar to the diesel counterparts, the Innova petrol will be available in G, V and Z trims. The petrol variants are expected to be priced Rs. 60,000 lower than the equivalent diesel trims.
The diesel variants, which were launched in May, have been receiving good response and the latest version of the MPV already racked up around 30,000 bookings. Sold in 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engines, the waiting period of the MPV currently stands at up to three months.
Toyota, which produced 6,000 units of the Innova Crysta in the first month of its launch, had ramped up the production to 7,800 units in June. It sold 8,171 units of the MPV in June in India and also became a bestseller in the UV segment in the first month after its launch, with sales of 7,259 units in May.
