I was quite surprised to witness the waiting time on the Toyota Innova Crysta at the moment. First launched in India back in May 2016, the workhorse from the Japanese auto giant has dominated the market completely. The commercial MPV segment offers the largest market share to the Innova Crysta. Interestingly, that has been the case for close to two decades now. The popularity of the Innova moniker in India doesn’t seem to wane anytime soon. The current high waiting periods suggest robust demand. Here are the details.

Waiting Time on Toyota Innova Crysta
As per various reports online, the MPV has a waiting period of 9 months at most locations across the nation. Note that the Innova Crysta is now available with a single powertrain and transmission combination. In fact, in January 2023, this variant was reintroduced in our market. It bears a slight tweak to the front end. The automatic transmission was also dropped for this trim. Hence, currently, the MPV has a sole diesel mill with a manual gearbox. Still, the demand for this model with 4 trims is unparalleled.

The existing Toyota Innova Crysta comes with a 2.4-litre turbo petrol engine which generates 150 PS and 343 Nm of peak power and torque. This engine pairs with a 5-speed manual transmission. It comes with handy features like a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, a Wireless Charger, 7 Airbags, perforated upholstery with Camel Tan leather, and more. At the moment, the prices range from Rs 19.99 lakh to Rs 26.05 lakh, ex-showroom.

I might’ve been surprised by the waiting time on the Toyota Innova Crysta, but I totally understand the reason for it. This product is one of the most successful ones from the Japanese auto giant in India. Originally launched in India in 2005, the Innova moniker has attained legendary status in close to 2 decades of existence. To think that it still posts such strong demand is quite impressive. As a matter of fact, Toyota leveraged this name and introduced the Innova Hycross in December 2022. It is, in essence, a premium and SUV-ish version of the Crysta. The potential car buyers in India have embraced both these vehicles with open arms. A lack of serious competition for the Crysta indicates the continuation of this demand going forward too.
