Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) is inching closer to the launch of the new generation of the Innova that will be called as Innova Crysta in India. The launch has been rumoured by the end of May. Ahead of the launch, the vehicle was spotted for the first time on Indian roads without camouflage.
Some pictures of TeamBHP suggest the vehicle has been spotted in Bengaluru where TKM's plant is situated. The MPV is the same one which Toyota unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016 in the beginning of February.
Expected to be offered in three variants in India — the new top-of-the-line Q variant and V and G trims — the Innova Crysta features LED projector headlamps and 17-inch alloy wheels. The front fascia gets a big hexagonal grille with two thick chrome slats on the top that blend into the headlamps and the bumper gets fog lamps and turn indicators.
On interior, the Innova Crysta will boast of automatic climate control with rear auto cooler, 7-inch audio with navigation, cruise control, electrically adjustable driver seat. On safety front, the MPV will feature ABS with Electronic brake distribution and brake assist as standard across the trim. Airbags will also be standard fitment.
The powertrain of the new Innova Crysta includes GD 2.4-litre diesel and 2.0-litre petrol engines. While the 2,393cc engine develops 147bhp and 359Nm of torque mated to a manual gearbox, the in-line four-cylinder 2,000cc VVT-i petrol engine churns out 137bhp and 183Nm of torque. The petrol mill will be available with manual and automatic transmissions.
