The Indian arm of Japanese carmaker Toyota is planning to bring a facelifted version of its popular Innova Crysta MPV in India. Here’s the lowdown of expected changes that new 2020 Toyota Innova Facelift India Launch model will come equipped with.
Design and styling: Toyota is expected to make subtle changes in the exteriors of the MPV. We expect the facelifted model to come equipped with new LED headlight and tail lamp clusters. The changes could also manifest on the bumpers although the MPV’s signature grille and fog housings are likely to be carried forward.
Cabin and interiors: In order to further augment the appeal of MPV, Toyota is expected to make some important changes inside the cabin. The quality of the material and components is likely to get an upgrade while the existing touchscreen infotainment system is expected to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for enhanced connectivity options. The company might also add to the equipment list although even as the existing features are good enough to pamper occupants.
Engines and Transmission: No change is expected in the engine and transmission department as the Innova Crysta will continue to feature the same set of engine and transmission – a 2.4-liter diesel (148bhp/343Nm) and a 2.7-liter petrol engine (164bhp/245Nm). Both these motors are BS6 compliant and unlikely to go under any modification. In terms of transmission, a 5-speed manual gearbox will be the standard part of the equipment while a 6-speed torque converter will come as an option.
Prices: The current range of the Innova Crysta starts at Rs 15.36 lakh and peaks at 23.02 lakh for petrol variants. Diesel model, on the other hand, stretches between Rs 16.14 lakh and Rs 23.02 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). The facelifted model will come with revised prices and we guesstimate the hike of at least 40k-50k in the prices of new Crysta over the current range.
Launch Date: Toyota hasn’t confirmed the launch date of facelift Innova Crysta. However, according to the news doing the rounds; 2020 Toyota Innova Facelift India Launch will happen at end of this year or early next year.
