Toyota India sold 71,875 units of the Innova in 2016, also making it one of the top 5 best-selling UVs in the country. The figure includes sales of both the first gen Innova and Innova Crysta (second gen Innova) which launched for sale launched last May. The steely performance is against the backdrop of diesel ban and demonetization, which affected sales of all auto companies.

ET Auto also reports the about 47% of the Innova Crysta buyers were already previous owners of the Innova, who had traded the older version for the newer model. The other portion is buyers who may have been lured by the premium appeal, larger size, better practicality and more fuel efficient engine options of the Innova Crysta.
