Toyota Innova Crysta petrol launch in India scheduled for Diwali 2016
If there is one mass-market manufacturer who has been hit the most by the recent ban on diesel cars of more than 2,000 cc engine capacity in Delhi-NCR, it is got to be Toyota India. It is no hidden fact that the main high-volume cars of Toyota in India are the Innova and the Fortuner, both having engines bigger than 2.0-litres. As a result, Toyota Kirloskar Motors is now leaving no stone unturned to ensure that their newly launched MPV, the all-new Toyota Innova Crysta, doesn’t need to take the brunt of the Supreme Court diesel vehicle ban. As a result, the Japanese automaker is planning to launch a new petrol engine for the Innova, which will be introduced in the Indian market around the upcoming festive season.
The all-new Toyota Innova Crysta 2016 was launched in India recently, at prices starting from Rs 14.17 lacs and going upto Rs. 21.12 lacs (ex-showroom Bangalore). Currently, the new Innova Crysta in India is powered by a 2.8-litre diesel and a 2.4-litre diesel engine. While the company does offer a 2.0-litre petrol engine with the all-new Innova in the Thailand and Indonesian markets, they are developing an all-new engine for the Innova Crysta Petrol variant, in order to suit requirements of the customers here.
This news was confirmed by N Raja, Director and Senior VP at Toyota India, who further went on to state that the company’s engineers are currently working on an all-new 2.7-litre petrol engine for the Innova Crysta, which will debut in the Indian market around Diwali 2016.
