Toyota Innova Crysta Diesel To Make A Comeback
Soon after unveiling of the Innova Hycross, Toyota removed the previous-gen Innova Crysta from its official website. But now reports are suggesting that it will be relaunched in a toned-down version for both private and fleet operators. Plus, it would be a diesel-only model.
Before discontinuation, the Innova Crysta was offered in five variants – G, G+, GX, VX and ZX. However, its revived version will be available in lower grades only, likely in the G, G+ and GX variants. It will also drop its 166PS 2.7-litre petrol engine, which had a peak output of 166PS and 245Nm. Only its 2.4-litre diesel engine (150PS/ up to 360Nm) will be on offer, probably only with the 5-speed manual transmission.
As for features, the 16-inch alloy wheels, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, tile & telescopic steering, power window, height adjustable driver’s seat, manual AC with dedicated rear AC vents, rear defogger, rear wiper & washer, fabric seats, rear armrests, power adjustable ORVMs, Vehicle Stability control, hill start assist, etc., are likely to remain on offer.
