Japanese carmaker’s Indian arm, Toyota Kirloskar Motor is reportedly in the process of launching a limited edition Touring Sport version of its much popular MPV in the Indian market, the Toyota Innova Crysta.
The limited version will see the MPV sporting black cladding on the lower portions of the panels across the vehicle, gloss black 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome inserts to the fog lamp housings, ORVMs and at the front grille.
The Innova Crysta Touring Sport version will be based on the top-of-the-line ZX trim of the MPV and will only be available in the 6-seater avatar, than the 7 seater one. The limited edition version is expected to be launched next month, in April, 2017.
Also recently, the company went for a swap of wheel size in the MPV for the sake of the highly valued ride quality, which it was known for.
The new Crysta used to sport a 17-inch alloy wheel size for its top-end ZX trim. The lower variants on the other hand come with a 16-inch size and go on to offer a lot better ride quality than the fully loaded variant, which didn’t go well with the customers, most of whom are swayed towards the MPV for its ride characteristics.
Now, taking customer response into consideration, Toyota has gone ahead and replaced the 17-inch alloys on the ZX variant with a 16-inch size, which now comes with 205/65 tire size, as opposed to the earlier size of 215/55/R17, which had shorter side profile than the 16-inch ones.
This new setup will ensure that even the top-most variant of the popular MPV offers the supple ride quality over bad roads, which it is actually known for.
Innova Crysta also comes with the option of a 2.8-litre diesel engine, along with an automatic gearbox in its top-of-the-line ZX trim. This variant comes fully loaded with safety equipment like seven airbags and other luxury items, like leather upholstery, automatic climate control system, electronically adjustable driver’s seat and a full key-less entry system, with an engine start-stop button on the inside.
