Innova Crysta, the new avatar of Toyota's popular MPV Innova, is having a successful run in the Indian market. The MPV, which made its market entry in May this year, has clocked over 50,000 unit sales in just six months.
The MPV, which has been earning a tremendous response from the auto lovers in the country, also witnessed stretched waiting period. However, with the production ramp up, Toyota has managed to tackle this to some extent. Toyota Innova Crysta currently commands a waiting period of over a month in India.
N. Raja, director and senior vice president, sales and marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said: "November has been a very exciting month for us as we launched one of the most anticipated products of the year - the all new Fortuner. We are overwhelmed by the response it has received with over 6,200 bookings already," adding, "The Innova Crysta and the Platinum Etios have also done really well this month with the Crysta clocking more than 50,000 units in just six months of its launch in India."
Innova Crysta is available in both petrol and diesel engine options. 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. 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. The latest reports suggest that Toyota is considering a hybrid version of the Crysta for the Indian market.
