Toyota has officially started taking pre-bookings for the BSVI version of the Innova Crysta. The company has also said that the Innova Crysta BSVI will be offered at a special celebratory price. Interested buyers can book the popular MPV at a token amount of Rs 51,000, which is refundable on cancellation. Deliveries for the new model are expected to begin in February 2020.
The company has discontinued the 2.8-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine from the Innova line-up. The MPV is now available in 2 engine options – a 2.4-litre, 4-cylinder diesel and a 2.7-litre 4-cylinder petrol. The company hasn’t revealed the power figures for the BSVI Innova Crysta. The MPV is now priced at Rs 15.36 lakh for the base petrol and Rs 16.14 lakh for the base diesel model.
The diesel engine of the BS6 Innova Crysta and Fortuner will be fitted with complex Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology as well as a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This will lead to significant price increase in diesel Innova and Fortuner. The Crysta has been one of the most successful MPVs currently on sale in India. It was available in the price bracket of Rs 14.93 lakh to Rs 22 lakh.
Toyota dealers have already exhausted the BS4 inventory of the Crysta. The company will soon launch the BSVI version of the Fortuner SUV as well. Besides upgrading the Innova Crysta and Fortuner, Toyota will launch the Vellfire MPV with petrol hybrid powertrain. Adding to it, Toyota and Maruti Suzuki are jointly developing a wide range of products including a C-segment MPV for the domestic as well as international markets.
Toyota won’t be upgrading the Etios family for the upcoming BSVI emission norms. The diesel versions are likely to be discontinued post April 2020. From April 2020, Toyota will only sell the locally-developed diesel powered Innova and Fortuner in India.
