Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
It has received well over 20,000 bookings.
Toyota Kirloskar Motors director of sales & marketing, Mr. N Raja, has stated that the top-end Z grade of the Innova Crysta has a waiting period of three months, which constitutes a majority of the bookings received.
Apparently, over 60 percent of the bookings are for the top-end 2.8 Z AT variant, which is priced from INR 20.78 Lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai). It’s powered by a 2.8L GD turbo-diesel engine that produces 174 PS & 360 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The 2.8 AT variant is capable of averaging an ARAI-certified fuel mileage of 14.29 km/L.
There’s also a less powerful 2.4L GD diesel engine with 149 PS & 343 Nm of torque, which is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The base variant with this powertrain is priced from INR 13.84 Lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai), and it’s capable of an ARAI-certified 15.10 km/L.
Later this year, Toyota will introduce a petrol variant of the Innova Crysta as a solution to the ban on diesel-powered vehicles displacing over 2000 cc that was imposed in Delhi NCR by the Supreme Court. Reports suggest that the production of the petrol variant will commence on July 18.
