Toyota Innova Crysta Might be the Indian Moniker for the Next-gen MPV


Japanese automaker recently teased the upcoming next-generation Toyota Innova MPV on its dedicated Auto Expo page and now by the looks of it, the official moniker of the car for the Indian market has been leaked ahead of the company’s 2016 Indian Auto Expo showcase. The revelation came as a courtesy of an official image of the highly anticipated MPV, which a report by The India Today, claims was released by Toyota Kirloskar Motors. The title “Crysta” was reserved exclusively for special editions of the previous-generation Innova.

2016 Innova finds its foundation in the same ladder-frame platform, which underpins the company’s flagship offroader, Fortuner. Under the hood, the next-generation MPV will incorporate a 2.4-liter GD diesel mill, which will deliver a peak power output of 149PS and 342Nm of peak torque. It is also likely that the Japanese automaker will introduce a petrol variant, which in all likeliness will be a 2.0-litre Dual VVT-i  unit and will be capable of delivering 139PS of power and 187Nm of peak torque. This could possibly be a move on the Japanese automaker’s behalf to introduce a variant that is not affected by the Supreme Court's supreme court ban on diesel vehicles which exceed the 2000cc displacement limit. The powerplants are expected to come mated to either a standard 5-speed manual or an option of a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Other updates on the car include a complete overhaul of the overall aesthetics of the car and that of the interiors. On the inside, the next-generation Innova will be substantially more luxurious than as compared to its previous iterations.
