Here we are, again with a news revolving around the highly anticipated 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta. After multiple spyshots, brochure leaks, and launch speculations, reports have now surfaced that the all-new Innova Crysta in India will be offered in five variants: 2.4 GX MT, 2.8 GX MT, 2.4 VX MT, 2.4 ZX MT, and 2.8 ZX AT.

Though the variant-wise feature distribution will be released after the official launch, we are aware that the top-end Innova 2016 will be equipped with a smart entry system, auto closing tailgate, start/stop button, 7 SRS airbags, EBD, Brake Assist, ABS, automatic climate control, and an 8-way power adjustable driver seat. Infotainment needs of the occupants are taken care of by a 7-inch touchscreen system, that also features navigational support. Ease of ingress and egress in the third row seats is boosted by the presence of 1-touch tumble for the second row.

Engine options on offer include a 2.4-litre GD diesel engine that can be opted with a 5-speed manual transmission, and a larger 2.8-litre mill which gets an additional 6-speed AT. The larger engine can be opted in the base (G) and top (Z) variants, while the middle (V) variant is only available with the 2.4-litre engine.

The Toyota Innova Crysta launch in India is expected to be scheduled on May 3 2016, which will pit it directly against competitors like the Renault Lodgy and Honda Mobilio.
