The newly-launched Innova Crysta is consistently giving a boost to the sales figures of Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM). The Innova Crysta found 8,171 buyers in June, making the model the best selling utility vehicle in India for the second month in a row. TKM had sold 7,259 units of the Innova Crysta in May, when the new generation MPV was launched in the country.

The sales figure of June is the highest ever experienced by Innova, which entered India in 2005, reports Rushlane. Toyota was selling an average of 5,000 units per month of the last gen Innova in 2015 and the numbers were falling every month.

The Innova Crysta has received over 30,000 bookings so far within two months of its launch. The MPV also commands a waiting period of up to three months, depending on the city. According to reports, nearly half of the bookings done so far are for the automatic variant of the Innova Crysta, which is priced over Rs. 20 lakh.

Priced from Rs. 13.83 lakh onwards (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the Innova Crysta is sold with 2.4-litre or 2.8-litre diesel engines. The 2,393cc diesel engine develops 148bhp of power and 243Nm of torque mated to five-speed manual gearbox, while the 2,755cc mill churns out 172bhp and 360Nm of torque and is coupled to six-speed automatic gearbox.

The engine is expected to be coupled with both five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission. Similar to the diesel counterparts, the Innova Crysta 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.
