In the Indian market, the Toyota Innova Crysta is set to receive a mid-cycle upgrade. Sources informs us that in a few weeks, Toyota dealers were told about the refreshed model coming to their showrooms. A handful of dealers we heard to have already started taking reservations for the refreshed Innova Crysta.
Toyota revised the engine line-up of the Innova Crysta earlier this year to conform with the rigorous BS6 requirements. This means that no mechanical changes are likely to be seen in the forthcoming update to Toyota ‘s famous MPV. Meanwhile, the aesthetic changes would be more in sync with the style used overseas.
The latest 150hp, 2.4-litre diesel and 166hp, 2.7-litre petrol engine options will likely be taken forward by the Innova Crysta facelift for India; both engines will currently be fitted with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox torque converter. In order to know more about their results, read our BS6 Toyota Innova Crysta analysis.
While most of the body panels remain the same, with a thick chrome surround and more slats than before, the current Innova Crysta gets a somewhat lager grille. The redesigned headlamps from Innova Crysta come with chrome extensions that blend neatly into the grille, and new-look LED daytime running lamps are also available for higher models. In comparison, along with a blacked-out chin and a chrome faux skid plate, the front bumper has a cleaner appearance. There is a new concept for the fog lamp enclosures and they get a black surround. In India, diamond-cut 16-inch alloy wheels could also be part of the kit. The revised Innova Crysta has a black hexagonal panel on the rear that lies between the tail-lights and stretches as far down as the slot of the number plate.
On the inside, in most models, the modified Innova Crysta will get a new instrument cluster. Also planned to be used on higher models is a new 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment device with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and an in-built air purifier.
