Auto Expo 2016: The New Toyota Innova Crysta was finally unveiled in India at the ongoing Motor Show in Delhi. It will be launched by mid 2016.
The all-new Toyota Innova Crysta made its debut in India on the first day of the Auto Expo 2016 – the Motor Show. The new-generation model of the country’s top-selling MPV receives all-new design, platform, features and engine and is more premium than the existing model. The launch of the 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta will take place sometime later this year.
The new Toyota Innova Crysta is built on a new platform called ‘Toyota New Global Architecture’ (TNGA) that is claimed to be stiffer than that of the current model despite being lighter. The upcoming new Toyota Fortuner is also built on the same paltform.
While the Indonesian model of the Toyota Innova 2016 comes in both petrol and diesel engine option, the India-bound model might only get a 2.4-litre GD diesel engine. Capable of producing 147bhp and 360Nm, this engine will be made available in both automatic and manual transmission options. Having said that, the one displayed at the Auto Expo 2016 is a 2.8-litre GD diesel-engined model.
Coming to the design of the Toyota Innova Crysta, it takes its inspiration from multiple Toyota cars including the new Fortuner, Camry and the Altis. With features such as a huge hexagonal grille with chrome slats, projector head-lamps with LED daytime running lamps, all-new fog-lights and a new bumper, the new Innova Crysta’s front fascia looks completely different from the current model.
The Toyota Innva 2016’s rear profile too looks completely new with boomerang shaped tail-lamps and sportier new bumper. With new wheel arch design, all-new side panels and alloy wheels, the Toyota Innova Crysta’s side profile looks refreshing. Though, the overall shape of the new-gen MPV looks pretty similar to the current-model.
With 4735mm length, 1795mm height, 1830mm width and 2750mm wheelbase, the new-generation Toyota Innova Crysta looks bigger and more spacious than the current model. Just like the current version, the 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta will also feature captain seats in the second row and a flat third row.
