2021 Toyota Innova Crysta facelift: What to expect on India-spec MPV?
Earlier this year, Toyota updated the Innova Crysta’s engine line-up to comply with the stringent BS6 norms. This means that the upcoming update for Toyota’s popular MPV will not likely see any mechanical changes. The cosmetic updates, meanwhile, will be more in line with the model seen overseas.
The Innova Crysta facelift for India will likely carry forward the existing 150hp, 2.4-litre diesel and 166hp, 2.7-litre petrol engine options; both engines can currently be had with either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
