Toyota Kirloskar Motor, the Indian arm of the Japanese automaker, is ready to give a generation change to its highly-popular Innova Crysta MPV and Fortuner SUV. Both models will witness a market launch sometime next year. If reports are to be believed, the new-generation Toyota Innova Crysta will make its world debut during 2022 Diwali season. Its India launch is likely to happen towards the end of this year or early next year. Here’re 4 key details (expected) about the 2022 Toyota Innova Crysta we know so far.
One of the significant updates will come in the form of the hybrid powertrain. The new Toyota Innova Crysta 2022 is expected to feature a 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine with Toyota’s self charging hybrid technology. If it happens, the MPV’s new-generation model will be more fuel efficient than the existing one. Recently, the carmaker registered the Toyota Innova Crysta HYCROSS nameplate in India, which is likely to be used for its hybrid version. Currently, it comes with two engines – 2.4L diesel and 2.7L petrol – and two gearbox options – 5-speed manual and automatic.
With the generation change, the MPV might switch to the brand’s heavily localised TNGA-B or DNGA platform. The architecture supports both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive system and is paired to a transverse engine. The company uses it for the unibody vehicles in the sub-4 metre cars and crossover SUV segment. The India-spec Innova Crysta is likely to get FWD DNGA modular platform.
The new 2022 Toyota Innova Crysta will be slightly shorter than the current generation. Though, its cabin space is likely to be better than before. The MPV’s current generation model measures 4735mm in length, 1830mm in width and 1795mm in height. Its wheelbase stands at 2750mm. Read – Toyota To Make India Its EV Parts Production Hub
