Toyota Innova Crysta to be sold alongside Hycross
The Toyota Innova Crysta will continue to be sold in India alongside the new Toyota Innova Hycross. The Crysta is currently only available as a petrol but the diesel version is also set to be reintroduced in the near future.
Toyota Innova Crysta to continue in India
The Toyota Innova Hycross has taken a significant step upmarket with this generation. With its TNGA front-driven monocoque architecture, SUV styling and petrol/hybrid powertrain options it now seems to cater to a different set of buyers that may not necessarily be looking for just a functional people-mover. This has been the Innova's core audience so far, which seems to have led Toyota India to continue with the Crysta here.
The Crysta hasn't seen a letup in sales and that should continue with its strong credentials among fleet operators and also private buyers. The Hycross will seemingly now fill in the gap between the Crysta and Fortuner, with the latter also having moved up in price over the years.
