Yes, the Toyota Innova Crysta price in India is way higher than the model it precedes. Crysta Exteriors
The best part about the new Innova is that it looks nothing like a van unlike before; it is leaner and gets contemporary treatment. The front end in particular steals the limelight as its gets the frame-less grille followed by multiple slats. Good part is that despite the lean look, the MPV gets key elements that retain the muscularity. Head lamps are long, sleek and pulled back and LEDs add a sense of modish touch to it. Toyota has not overdone the chrome work particularly in front. Side profile is familiar to the preceding model, although the tapering window frame lends a modish flair to it. 17 inch wheels are tucked under the muscular fenders. At the back there is a prominent integrated spoiler atop and boomerang shaped wrap around tail lamps. Crysta Interiors
