Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM), Indian subsidiary of the Japanese automaker launched a new Innova model with the addition of Crysta in the name in May 2016. The popular MPV is turning a year old and the company is gearing up to celebrate it with the launch of special edition christened as Innova Crysta Touring Sport.
The limited edition has already been spotted in dealerships in the country and it will be launched on May 4. It will be a pure cosmetic upgrade just like the Innova Venturer edition sold in the Indonesian market. The highlight of the special edition will be the new Wine Red colour option.
The Touring Sport will flaunt crossover-like cladding on the bumpers, wheel arches and side skirts. Other additions in the exterior include chrome inserts on the bumpers, grille and ORVMs. The design of the alloy wheels will be the same while it will get dark treatment.
The special edition is expected to be offered as the top-end ZX variant with six-seater configuration. It will be equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system and a TFT multi-information display just like the top variant of the regular Innova Crysta. While the layout inside will be the same as the regular model, the new model may get black colored seat fabric, Touring Sport-badged mats, and more.
Being a nip and tuck, the powertrain of the Innova Crysta Touring Sport will be the same on the regular version. Currently, the Innova Crysta petrol is powered by a 164bhp, in-line 4-cyl 2.7-litre unit while the diesel mills are 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre diesel engines. The 2,393cc diesel engine develops 148bhp, while the 2,755cc mill churns out 172bhp.
The transmission is taken care of by a five-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox. The engine option for Touring Sport is likely to be limited to one. However, there is no clarity on which among the three engines will be part of it. The Touring Sport is expected to be price around Rs 70,000-80,000 over the regular ZX trim.
