The Toyota Innova Crysta has been around for quite some time and hasn’t received any substantial updates. It was about time that the Japanese carmaker updated its MPV and it seems like that is exactly what is going to happen. Someone in Indonesia has snapped a facelifted version of the Innova Crysta. Another spy shot reveals the updated Innova Crysta being transported to a dealership, hinting at its imminent launch in Indonesia.
We can expect Toyota to bring in the updated Innova Crysta here as well because it is the undisputed king in the MPV segment in our country. In recent months, however, the Innova Crysta has experienced in sales which might be because of its new alternatives which have cropped up in the market.
Coming to the eminent visual changes now, Toyota has kept the overall profile of this MPV pretty much unchanged. The pixelated picture does reveal an updated front fascia. The front grille is a lot wider and covers more areas of the front fascia making it look more aggressive. It is now finished in black with a thick chrome outline. The grille has five horizontal slats instead of the two chrome-finished ones earlier, and while the size of the headlights remains the same, they now get chrome extensions. The front bumper is redesigned too now appears to carry a more complex design than its predecessor. It gets contrast black shade for the chin and the fog lamps are now vertically housed in a thick, triangular black surround. New alloy wheel designs are also expected in either a silver finish or a darker tone, depending upon its trim level.
Though the images only reveal the updated exterior of the updated Innova Crysta, we can expect some mild revisions inside the cabin as well. Given how much the connected car technology has become popular these days, we can expect Toyota to equip the cabin with slightly bigger and more conducive touchscreen infotainment system If Toyota is a little more generous then it might also throw in a wireless phone charger and a 360-degree parking camera.
With the BS6 compliant version of the Innova Crysta, Toyota discontinued the 2.8-litre diesel engine and carried on only with the 2.4-litre diesel unit to bring the costs down a bit. The turbocharged unit makes 150 PS and 360 Nm of peak torque when paired with a 6-speed auto and as many horses and 343 Nm when mated to a 5-speed manual. The 2.7-litre petrol engine makes 166 PS of power and 245 Nm of torque. Both engines are currently available with a five-speed manual gearbox as well as an option of six-speed automatic transmission. We can expect Toyota to carry forward the same engine and transmission.
