On February 24th, 2005, Innova was introduced to the Indian market. The Innova succeeded the Toyota Qualis. It was India's first three-row passenger automobile, and it revolutionized the MPV industry.
In January 2009, the Innova received its first facelift. It was later aesthetically redesigned in 2012 and displayed with the upgraded Fortuner at the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi.
However, a big update was the launch of the Innova Crysta in 2016. The Crystal was a massive step forward from the outgoing model, be it design, cabin luxury, or driving performance.
Later in 2020, during the transition to the BS-VI emission norms, Toyota pulled the plug on the Innova's 2.8 diesel because of the massive cost of updating to BS6.
In late 2020, Toyota introduced the facelifted Innova Crysta. Depending on the version, prices have increased by Rs 20,000-70,000.
The Innova Crysta is offered with a 2.4 liter (2393 cc) diesel engine churning out 150 hp and 343 Nm in the manual variant and 360 Nm in the automatic variant. A 2.7 liter (2694 cc) petrol engine also makes 166 hp and 245 Nm.
Toyota offers the Innova Crysta in both petrol and diesel fuel types.
Both the Toyota Innova Crysta engines come mated to either a 6-speed torque converter automatic or a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The Toyota Innova Crysta has been on the market since 2016 and is the undisputed monarch of the MPV sector, a position it had held since 2005 when the original Innova was released.
The Toyota Innova Crysta Limited Edition in India is the most recent addition to the MPVs lineup. It comes with a slew of new features that aren't available on the GX trim. However, it will be available in limited numbers only.
The Toyota Innova Crysta is offered in multiple trims - G, G+, GX, VX, and the top of the line ZX trim. These five trims are distributed across 18 variants. The petrol variants include 2.7 GX MT (7-seater), 2.7 GX MT (8-seater), 2.7 GX AT (7-seater), 2.7 GX AT (8-seater), 2.7 VX MT (7-seater), 2.7 ZX AT (7-seater). Meanwhile, the diesel variants include 2.4 G MT (7-seater), 2.4 G MT (8-seater), 2.4 G+ MT (7-seater), 2.4 G+ MT (8-seater), 2.4 GX MT (7-seater), 2.4 GX MT (8-seater), 2.4 GX AT (7-seater), 2.4 GX AT (8-seater), 2.4 VX MT (7-seater), 2.4 VX MT (8-seater), 2.4 ZX MT (7-seater), and 2.4 ZX AT (7-seater).
The Toyota Innova Crysta is available in 7 different colors – Garnet Red, White Pearl, Avant Garde Bronze, Sparkling Black Crystal Shine, White Pearl Crystal Shine, Gray, Super White, and Silver.
The Toyota Innova Crysta is priced between Rs. 17.18 lakhs ex-showroom and Rs 24.99 lakhs ex-showroom.
The Toyota Innova Crysta doesn't have a direct rival in the Indian market; it sits right between the Mahindra Marazoo and the Kia Carnival. However, pricing-wise, the Innova Crysta competes against rivals such as the Mahindra XUV 500, Tata Safari, Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus, and the upcoming Jeep Meridian.
Entry and exit are simple, and the middle-row seats' one-touch fall allows for reasonably easy access to the third row of seats.
All its three rows are spacious and can accommodate passengers comfortably.
The seats are plush and comfortable.
The cabin feels premium with all the premium touches, finishes, and soft-touch plastic.
The Innova remains immensely planted at high speeds, giving tremendous confidence to the driver.
The BS-VI 2.4-liter engine feels a little more smooth at low revs, which improves comfort, especially when driving on highways. On broad roads, the 2.4 AT pulls forward with ease. It has a substantial performance reserve, particularly when overtaking at higher speeds.
Few vehicles can equal Innova's reputation for mechanical toughness and durability.
Along with hassle-free ownership experience, Toyota's after-sales service is pretty good, and the market value of the Innova is incredible.
The Innova has gotten very expensive with each update.
It is a bit under-equipped compared to its key rivals, such as the XUV 700, especially considering that the XUV is much cheaper.
The large turning radius of the Innova makes it challenging to drive in the city traffic.
The powerful 2.8-liter diesel engine has been discontinued. The 2.4-liter engine doesn't feel as nimble as the 2.8.
The ride quality is a little rough. Low-speed lumpiness, typical of a body on frame vehicle, remains. The steering also has some kickback and is a little hefty at low speeds.
With its bold and futuristic design, the Innova Crysta successfully removes itself from the utilitarian image of the model that came before it. The appearance looks intimidating. It's also rather beautiful on the interior, with a sophisticated dashboard design giving the car a premium feel. The front and middle row seats are pleasant, while the third row is reasonably spacious. The petrol Innova Crysta is refined and performs well but is highly thirsty. The 2.4-liter engine isn't very speedy right from the mark, but it quickly settles in.
Best features on the Toyota Innova Crysta include Auto led headlamps, keyless entry and go, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rear AC vents, and reclining backrest (2nd and 3rd row), powered driver’s seat, leather upholstery, ambient lighting, automatic climate control, and cruise control. Safety-wise, it has seven airbags, ABS with EBD, hill start assist, vehicle stability control, and a parking camera with sensors.
Both engines on the Innova provide adequate performance for driving enjoyment. For starters, the 2.4 diesel doesn't quite spring forward as quickly as the 2.8 when you press the throttle, but it's still fast to respond and pulls smoothly. At low and medium engine speeds, the 2.4 AT also has plenty of grunts. The catch, however, is that the 2.4-liter engine is a bit boomy, and neither the 5-speed manual gearbox nor the clutch is very light. Over lousy road surfaces, the Crysta's ride quality is likewise remarkable, handling is mediocre, and the Innova's substantial weight makes it feel particularly sluggish in town.
Overall, the Toyota Innova Crysta is a well-built and dependable vehicle. But buyers appear unphased about the Crysta's hefty price compared to its rivals because they relate the Innova brand with quality and durability and are ready to pay a premium for the hassle-free ownership experience.
