Thanks in advance
Yes, V variant gets projector (Not sure if they are LEDs) I dint try the seat combinations but the 8 seater rear bench is comfortable enough.

  • Space: Thats a big dampener. I'm not sure the utility value of a vehicle having 7 / 8 seats and the last row is cramped.
It is absorbent and doesn't unsettle the car during high speed. Feels more German'ish in overall ride experience.

Third row is indeed a let down.

Which dealer did you put down the 50k with as a deposit?

Mumbai or Navi Mumbai dealer?

is the prebooking happening all over India or only at select cities? I called up the dealer at Coimbatore and I was told that I need to wait until the official launch to make the booking. Please enlighten me.

Expected the engine to be more relaxed @100km/h in top gear. 2250 RPM @ 100km/h is way better than the current one, but sudeep.pandya reporting that the gearing is on the shorter side is disheartening. They could have bought in the 'high powered' 2.4 with the 6 speed manual.


Regarding the space, was surprised to hear that the space is down compared to the last gen. None of the reviews done by ACI or those n Thailand had said that.

I initially put it down to the darker interiors and the fact that the seats maybe larger for better thigh support giving a sense of less space. But looks like it is the case, especially in the 3rd row, which the ol' Innova was the best after the Xylo in comfort(seating).

Anyway, looking forward to the launch.

The rear side indicators feel like two teeth coming out from the side of the mouth of an ugly dragon. Terrible design.

If the third row space is less compared to the outgoing model, it may just help hold the resale prices for the outgoing model. Although I am praying and suspect that the seating may still be comfortable for an adult of size 5ft 7 inches and below. I hope it is and I finally will be able to buy something which fulfills all my needs.

Oh crap, so much scarcity of space for 3rd row occupants?
Also look at the way third bench sits closer to the floor.
I think Innova has gained some dimensions and still lacks on space inside?

That could be a bummer for a person looking for a REAL 7 seater.

The Crysta rear is as ugly / good as Land Cruiser, if viewed separately. If viewed as a whole, the boxy rear suits Land Cruiser's style, but doesn't gel well with the curvy design of the Crysta.

All variants come with projector lamps except 2.4GX. Some more pics with all variants lined up at a dealers stock yard.

Also checked on the middle row space. Under thigh support is increased compared to my current gen Innova. Also the luggage space remains same as current gen. Did not check the last row space.

Well here is my mini review of my Test drive of the Innova. Just for the everyone's notice, I only had access to the Gulf spec version which consists of 2.7L petrol version (carried forward from the last gen here), 164hp, 4cyl mated to a 6 speed automatic.

As the pics are already out, im not discussing the looks but definitely its a much better look exterior, although the tail lights are more in line with the corporate rear ( i.e. Rav4, etc.)

The drive was limited to about 15 minutes. During that time, I had a quick look in and was briefed about the new chassis. Definitely body rigidity feels improved. The vehicle feels much sturdier in the straights, and there is a higher imposing feeling on the road when sitting inside. ( I can imagine so much more intimidation by newer Innovas on the Indian roads). The ride is comfy, thanks to the new suspension setup and overall ambience is much nicer, feeling much more premium. The 6-speed auto, compared to the ancient 4 speed was so much of a relief. The power delivery is still quite linear but that lethargic feeling after 80km/h is gone. The manual mode on the auto ( a triptronic kind) wasn't particularly useful. Inputs were slow and took a touch of idle time before shifting, best to leave it in fully auto mode. The only issue with the 6-speed, its designed more for fuel economy and is always in a hurry to shift up to the higher gear.

Some quick curves and serves during the drive resulted in a sway that kind of felt that the agility had reduced compared to the previous gen. The main reason is the heavier weight and larger dimensions. The added bulk, although masked by the 6-speed, still makes the innova feel slow. In the Indian version though, the added power and torque should make it feel much more powerful but not feel class leading as it sounds on paper.

The interior although nicer, still has a fair share of plastics. The seats felt more comfy nonetheless. The thicker seats though have eaten into the interior space, which brings us to the never ending debate of the moment. Definitely spacing has been revised, although there are there are some murmurs regarding the new transmission causing seat setup changes ( I cannot confirm this, although this has been talked about multiple times in the new Fortuner, which is yet to be on sale there). The space revision has compromised the last row majorly with the second row slightly, which when setup for me (6'0)certainly feels much tighter than old model. I guess they don't consider an entire family of above 5'9 to occupy most of the seats at the same time.

The 6-speed auto is a recommended addition, and knowing that they can charge a hefty premium is the reason the auto is only given on the 2.8L for the Indian market. The 5 speed manual carried forward will make the Innova feel stressed at the higher speeds. (Be sure a 6-speed manual is on the cards for the facelift or a future model) That said, excluding a 6-speed manual is quite a poor deal on all variants after charging a high premium.

Features vise we get standard of 3 airbags (front+passenger+ front knee) and the top model gets 17" alloy. 6 speakers and cruise control is also standard across variants. The mid & higher models get all the TFT & Entertainment screens. The top of the line is only available with captain seats.

The cost here is around 15.5-18.5lakhs (on conversion) with three variants between them, I expect it to be higher for the top end there.

End of my version of a semi-detailed review.

The interior size comparison of Old Innova Vs Innova Crysta is as follows:

Interior Length : Old model 288 cm Vs Crysta 260 cm (28 cm short)

Interior Width : Old model 149 cm Vs Crysta 149 cm

interior Height : Old model 127.5 cm Vs Crysta 124.5 cm (3 cm short)

This shortage is showing in the third row.

You can find the brochure copies for reference in my earlier post.
