Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) will start the delivery of the petrol version of the Innova Crysta in India from August, reports IndianAutos Blog. The dealers of the company have started accepting bookings for the soon-to-be-launched petrol variant of the MPV.
The Innova Crysta, the new avatar of Toyota's much-acclaimed MPV, is currently offered with diesel engine. The upcoming petrol variant of the Innova Crysta will come 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. The transmission in the Innova Crysta petrol is expected to be taken care of by a five-speed manual gearbox and six-speed automatic.
To be offered in three trims — G, V and Z, the Innova Crysta petrol is expected to be priced about Rs. 60,000 lower than the current diesel models. Currently, the Innova Crysta is offered with a 2.4-litre and 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 has been witnessing an overwhelming response since its entry into the market in May and has garnered over 30,000 bookings so far. Priced at Rs. 13.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the Innova Crysta now has a waiting period of three months in India. 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 to reduce the waiting period.
