Toyota Kirloskar Motor has unveiled the all-new Innova Crysta for the Indian market. A national launch is scheduled to happen in the coming months. Already on sale in Indonesia, where it’s addressed as the Kijang Innova, the new Innova Crysta is based on Toyota’s Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) platform that also underpins the Hilux pick-up truck and the new Fortuner SUV.
The all-new styling is more contemporary than ever. The front end styling is in line with Toyota’s new design philosophy for utility vehicles, and says hello with a massive grille starring thick, chrome laden slats. The large, wraparound headlamps feature a set of three, neatly segmented illumination elements, which include projectors and LED banks. The sides aren’t as dramatic as the front end, but one distinctive element is the rear quarter glass area, which is diagonally cut by the D-pillar. At the back, the new, horizontally oriented brake light units on the new cluster taper mildly inwards with reverse light positioned on the inside. Other exterior highlights include three new colors, 17-inch alloy wheels, and chrome window lining.
The interiors are also all-new, and the revamped cabin is highlighted by a fresh dashboard. Combining straight lines and well contoured curves, the new dashboard design looks chic, while a choice of faux silver or faux wood inserts up the class. The Innova Crysta will come with features like automatic climate control with Rear Auto Cooler , 7″ touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, cruise control, power driver seat, 1-touch tumble 2nd row seats, 1-touch 3’d row space up seats , Front seat with easy slide from rear, a Smart Entry System with Start/ Stop Button and an Easy Closer back door.
Powering the new Innova Crysta will be a new 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder diesel engine from Toyota’s new GD family with close to 150 hp and 340 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to an optional 6-speed auto transmission as an option. Safety features on offer include standard airbags, ABS with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist standard on all grades.
