Toyota Innova Crysta vs Mahindra XUV500 – Comparo

Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Toyota Innova Crysta is now available for sale.

Given that the new Toyota Innova Crysta does not have any rivals in the premium mid-size MPV segment, here’s a comparison between it and another popular alternative – the Mahindra XUV500.

Toyota Innova Crysta vs Mahindra XUV500 Comparo

Although both of them belong in different segments, on paper, some of the technical specs are nearly similar. Being a true MPV, the Innova Crysta is longer in length and shorter in height than the Mahindra XUV500 SUV, although the latter is wider for a better presence. Also, the XUV500 has chunkier tires for better tractability off-road.

The Innova Crysta is available with two engine options: 2.4L and 2.8L, both of which are more powerful than the XUV500’s sole diesel option: a 2.2L mHawk 140 diesel unit. The Innova 2.4L is only available with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the 6-speed automatic gearbox is exclusive to the 2.8L variant. In the XUV500, there are two gearbox options for the same engine: 6-speed MT and AT. Being a large SUV, the XUV500 is also offered with an AWD system.

Both models offer 7-seats across three rows, although the Innova Crysta has an 8-seater option where the 2nd row captain seats are replaced with a 60:40 split bench seat. Both are generously equipped, featuring touchscreen infotainment systems, ambient lighting, leather upholstery with power adjustability (driver only), projector headlamps, and push button start.
