In this latest video, an Indian vlogger showcases the Toyota Calya and calls it a mini Innova Crysta. The reason for that is quite simple and we shall discuss it in this post subsequently. Innova Crysta is the most successful workhorse from the Japanese auto giant in our market. It has been around for years now. People have found its applications in personal, as well as commercial segments. Despite being in existence for years, it still commands that appeal from buyers and continues to rake in sales for Toyota in our market. Let us take a look at the details of this latest vehicle which the vlogger feels is quite related to the Innova Crysta.

Toyota Calya or Mini Innova Crysta?
This post comes from Rajni Chaudhary on YouTube. She gives a walkaround tour of this compact 7-seat MPV. At the front, the vehicle boasts a large front area with piano black grille and dark chrome slab, there are regular headlamps, the fog lamp housing is quite blingy with the use of chrome, the bumper is quite regular and the bonnet has a sloping effect typical of MPVs. On the sides, one gets 14-inch alloy wheels, ORVMs with turn indicators, body-coloured door handles, black B and C pillars. At the rear, there are split taillamps with minor influence from the Innova Crysta, a roof-mounted spoiler, a chrome slab between the taillamps, a black strip on the bumper. All in all, one could sense the compactness of the vehicle.

Interior and Features
The cabin of this MPV is bare basic. It is designed to cater to the fundamental needs of its occupants and nothing more than that. There is the use of plastic materials all over the cabin. The steering wheel has basic control buttons to operate a few things like volume and mode for the small infotainment display, analogue instrument cluster, front armrest, automatic transmission lever on the central console, all four power windows, roof-mounted AC vents for the rear passengers, 7-seat configuration, and more. All in all, it has the basic covered.
The Toyota Calya comes with a handy 1.2-litre petrol engine which generates a decent 87 hp and 108 Nm of peak power and torque. This particular model comes with a CVT automatic transmission, The length of the MPV is just 4.1 m and the wheelbase is around 2.5 m. Still, Toyota has managed to offer enough space to place 3 rows of seating. The ground clearance is a usable 185 mm. What is interesting is the pricing. The vlogger is in Indonesia and the price of this MPV is around Rs 8 lakh when converted into INR. Clearly, that is a bargain for what this MPV has to offer.
