Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift Spied; Gets Updated Front End
Toyota launched the Innova Crysta back in 2016 and it has remained largely unchanged in the last four years. Now, it seems like the carmaker is planning to update its MPV, and a picture of the facelifted Innova Crysta has surfaced online.
Upfront, the facelift gets a new larger trapezoidal grille with a chrome surround and horizontal slats. It also features slightly updated headlamps and a redesigned front bumper incorporating a bigger fog lamp housing and a sleeker central air dam. The side profile looks unchanged save for a new set of dual-tone alloy wheels. Although the spy shots don’t reveal the rear of the updated SUV, it is expected to get slightly updated tail lamps and a restyled rear bumper.
Similarly on the inside, while the layout is expected to remain unchanged, it might get new upholstery and some additional features. The current Innova Crysta is equipped with features such as 7 airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat anchors, auto AC with rear AC vents, optional captain seats in the second row, auto LED headlamps, push-button start and a touchscreen infotainment system.
The Innova Crysta is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine on offer is a 2.7-litre petrol engine making 166PS and 245Nm mated to either a 5-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is a 2.4-litre unit producing 150PS. It is available with a 5-speed MT making 343Nm torque and a 6-speed AT making 360Nm of torque. Both the engines are expected to be carried forward as such on the facelifted model as well.
Toyota has not officially said anything about the Innova Crysta facelift but expect it to launch by 2021. It will continue to rival the likes of the Mahindra Marazzo and upcoming Tata Hexa. Currently, the Innova Crysta is priced from Rs 15.66 lakh to Rs 23.63 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
