Japanese automaker, Toyota has recently started taking pre-orders for the BSVI compliant Yaris sedan. A new media report claims that the company is ready with the upgraded Innova Crysta and the Fortuner. In fact, the bookings for the BS6-compliant Toyota Innova Crysta and Fortuner will commence in the second week of January 2020.
The report further claims that few dealers have already unofficially opened bookings for the BS6 models. Bookings for the BS6 versions of the Fortuner and Innova are expected to commence on January 6, 2020. Dealers across the country have exhausted BS4 stock. Interested buyers can pre-book the upgraded models at Rs 50,000.
Deliveries of the BS6 Toyota Fortuner and Innova Crysta are expected to commence by end-February or early in March. Japanese automaker wants to ensure BS6 fuel is available across India by the time its BS6 models hit the road. With BS6 compliant engines, the diesel versions of the Innova Crysta and Fortuner are expected to see a price hike of around Rs 1 lakh to Rs 1.5 lakh.
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). From April 2020, Toyota will only sell the locally-developed diesel powered Innova and Fortuner in India. The Etios Liva and the Etios sedan will be discontinued from the market. In fact, the upcoming Toyota Vellfire luxury MPV will be available only as a petrol-hybrid model.
