- The MPV will be offered in 4 trims - G, GX, VX, and ZX.
- The Innova Crysta will be sold alongside the newly launched Innova Hycross.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has reintroduced its highly popular MPV, the Innova Crysta for the 2023 model year. The MPV, with was temporarily discontinued last year, now comes with a host of updates and will be offered in four diesel-only variants with a manual transmission as standard. The company has begun accepting customer bookings for a token of Rs. 50,000, while price announcement and commencement of deliveries will be announced later. Toyota will offer both 7- and 8-seater versions of the MPV.
Last year, Toyota temporarily stopped the production of the Innova Crysta to focus on the launch of the new Innova Hycross, which is essentially the third-generation version of the MPV. However, the company had confirmed that it will continue to sell the Innova Crysta in a diesel-only guise. This is because the Hycross only comes in petrol and strong hybrid versions, and there is still a huge demand for diesel Innovas in the fleet segment.
The 2023 Innova Crysta will be offered only with a diesel-manual set-up.
