As we just said, the new model 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta India launch took place in early -May. It maybe noted that the Innova is easily among the most successful nameplates in the Indian car industry. Thanks to a really comfortable cabin, ultra reliable engine, car-like dynamics and the reliability that comes associated with a Toyota model, the Innova has already established itself very well in the MPV market. The new 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta successfully carries forward the legacy from the earlier model.

Not just that, the new Innova Crysta goes on to enthral many more prospective buyers with its sportier design, roomier cabin and more features. The front of the new 2016 Innova is more aggressive compared to the 2014 model. It now gets an SUV-like stance at the front with a large windshield, high seating and a large grille. The grille also looks much more masculine now. The headlamps are also less rounded and more boxy with sharp edge styling. The wheel arches are now more subtle and the side profile also gets some changes over the ongoing model. The highlight of the new model’s design is its rear-quarter glass, which surely looks interesting. Also, the introduction of new GD-engine makes the new model more fuel efficient. The new Innova Crysta is a huge step forward and it should go on to change the way people look at mass market MPVs.

2016 Toyota Innova Crysta Review

What is it?

This is the all new Toyota Innova Crysta that has been burdened with carrying the legacy of the Innova brand name forward for another decade or so. Back in 2005 when Toyota decided to launch the Innova in India to replace the Qualis, no one, not even Toyota, would’ve guessed that the car would go on to define the MPV segment in India. For more than a decade, the Innova has ruled the segment despite its age, higher price and other factors. And for good reason. The superior comfort levels, unmatched reliability, and space ensured the Innova cemented itself at the top of the MPV pile. To be quite honest, by the time a genuinely worthy came along, the MPV was too well established to lose out to a fresh face.

Clearly, The new Toyota Innova Crysta has some really big shoes to fill. Toyota has given the 2016 Innova a comprehensive makeover giving it a new exterior, a more opulent cabin and an all-new set of engines including petrol and automatic models. But have they done enough? Will prospective buyers ditch traditional SUVs and executive sedans for the Innova? Will cabbies show it the same amount of love as the outgoing model?

Still Looks Like a Van

The van-like silhouette of most MPVs is not everyone’s cup of tea and if you’re one of those who do not like that particular body style then the new Innova won’t make your heart skip a beat. That said, the new model here is certainly an improvement over the old one, especially the face. It is much bigger in size, this time around, a fact that is compounded by the sleek headlamps and a wide gaping grille up front. The sleeker headlamps get projector elements and LED DRLs, at least, on the top-end models. Toyota has made ample usage of chrome up front with the twin chrome slats in the grille and chrome inserts in the headlamps. Placement of the turn indicators in the bumpers next to the fog lamps is rather unconventional.

Sadly, though, the designers seem to have exhausted their skills designing the front end as rest of the car is quite disappointing. The van-like side profile is too plain as the body panels are flat and devoid of any strong character lines. And the bulkiness of the body makes even the 17-inch wheels look puny. Out back, the tail lamps sport a very bland profile with odd looking turn indicators. A roof spoiler has been added to infuse some sportiness into the rear, but it just doesn’t impress us as much as the front does. Also, new here is a sharper D-pillar design and new rear quarter glass.

Interior Design

On the inside, major emphasis is given to improved comfort of the occupants. The next generation Innova is sure to come across as being more premium and roomier than before. The Innova Crysta gets features like dual airbags, climate control, reverse camera, multifunction steering wheel. Also, on board is an auto shut function for the tailgate, hill descent control, 6 airbags and more. Taking centre stage in the cabin of the new Innova Crysta is a redesigned dashboard complete with a touch-screen centre console and use of better materials to make the cabin more upmarket. The general design theme is similar to the Corolla’s and the 2016 Fortuner’s. Ample usage of faux wood finish has been made throughout the  dashboard and on the steering wheels as well.

The new 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta boasts a really striking exterior design, has premium features and upholstery on the inside and what is even better is that this model comes with a set of reliable and powerful engines along with the option of an automatic transmission too. But then you would argue that the same applies to the other upcoming MPV’s as well, but what might give the Innova the edge is that it is already an Indian Favourite

2016 Toyota Innova Crysta – How is it to drive?

Owing to the fact that it is bigger than the outgoing model, maneuvering the Innova Crysta in city traffic is a more difficult task. A fact that is compounded by the slightly heavy nature of the steering at lower speeds. While the MPV is as comfortable as the old Innova, the low-speed ride seems to be a bit harsh. On the plus side, the new engines and transmissions are a vast improvement over earlier ones. Also, the new car offers more space, more features and much better interiors. Powering the Crysta are all-new petrol and diesel engines that are available with both manual and automatic transmission options.

The motors are potent and are much better in terms of performance as compared to the old car. Stay tuned for a 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta Review.

Toyota Innova Old vs New Model – Comparison

Seen here – New Innova Crysta with the outgoing Innova model

The Toyota Innova is easily among the most popular car brands in India today. The Innova still manages to be at the top of the sales chart. The Innova Crysta is expected to build on the last generation model’s qualities of best-in-class passenger comfort, reliable mechanicals, and almost car-like road handling. The new Innova boasts of more premium cabin with many new features, a new set of engines and a more striking face. In comparison to the old model, the new one gets an increase in the power output, the addition of automatic transmission options and additional features as well. However, all this comes at a cost and there is a price difference of around INR 3-4 lacs in the price of the new and old Innova.

The Innova was never really what we would call good value for money and the launch of the new model hasn’t made things better. We compared the old model Innova with the Innova Crysta and you can find our detailed comparison by clicking on Toyota Innova Old vs New Model.
