Got a call from Harsha Toyota, Kathipara about 2 days back inviting us for the Crysta launch today, maybe it's just available for display today, will be going in the afternoon.

But still there's confusion regarding the launch date anyway watch out for my post.

AFAIK, the Innova Crysta's launch is in the 2nd week of May (think it's the 13th).

Curiously one of the earlier news (not sure if it was a brochure page) was that the ZX variant only being available with the 2.8 AT whereas the Motoroids pictures clearly show a 2.4 ZX. I wonder what's the real deal and spread of variants!

Dear Turbanator,

Could you please elaborate on some of the features of the GX 2.8 AT if possible?
  • Does it get the projector Headlamps?
  • Alloys?
  • Climate Control AC (I have assumed rear AC to be standard)?
  • Touchscreen HU?

Poor way to handle the launch IMHO. Even if the launch is on 13th shouldn't they have sent invites to their launch even by now? I wonder now where all the news / rumors about a launch on May 02/03, 2016 have come from!

I have been told that the car will be unveiled at the Thane Showroom today. Test drives in the following days. Will check out the car on Saturday with my neighbor who has also booked it.

Display vehicles are at Shinrai Totota Worli as of today. A silver GX manual and a ZX A/T. They've even started TDs at worli sea face.

I again say this having seen the cars first hand.
ZX A/T not coming with bench seats is a bummer. The GX A/T may not be acceptable to all as a variant.

Thank you to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing them with other enthusiasts!

Here is the brochure of the Toyota Innova Crysta, which is scheduled to be launched in the coming days. The document gives us a glimpse into the specifications of the car and the features that will be offered.

Thanks a lot Aditya and team bhp fan for posting the brochure.I was hoping for someone to post the brochure as I can not go to the Toyota showroom ..The main feature differences i see between the Vx and Zx manual variants are leather seats,navigation ,puddle lamps and a bit of more wood inserts.Also the Vx variant does not have easy passenger slide? What is it exactly? My dad has already booked a bronze gold Vx model in Chandigarh and the people from toyota called him to confirm the car color and variant.

Thanks in advance

Easy Passenger Slide would probably be the lever to adjust the front seat from being in the middle row. I think VW Vento had it with a lever to the side of the seat.

Most front passenger seats are pushed all the way to the front when the car is used for chauffeuring passengers, so won't be a big miss IMHO.

VX seems good enough if leather seats, navigation and puddle lamps are what is the differentiation between the variants.

Now waiting for the all important price tag.

Edit: Seems like VX loses out on Speed sensing door lock, Hill Starts, VSC as well.

Yes true it also looses on electrically adjustable driver seats . My dad is buying the car for being driven around so these features would not matter much.I think we are making the right choice by choosing the Vx trim..Does anybody has the price information?
Thanks

Took a quick TD at Worli Sea Face of the A/T as well as the M/T. Overall really good feeling. Its certainly powerful enough in both avatars although the MT felt distinctly peppier to drive than the AT. I almost enjoyed driving the Manual more than the A/T (that's saying a lot for someone who owns 3 A/T cars).

The car is now very plush. Dealers were non committal on price although one sales lady suggested ZX A/T might be around 23L on road (Bbay). Personally I was pleasantly surprised at that number. Given the outgoing top of line manual retails at about 20.60 L, 23 L for all new version with A/T to boot seemed conservative pricing to me. Next few days will tell all I guess on pricing specifics.

Personally, I think if the top of the line retails at 23L, it puts good pressure on pricing of the XUV AT as well as the Creta AT. When it comes to Diesel AT S/MUVs, I'd only buy XUV if I MUST have AWD. I'd only buy the Creta if the smaller footprint is a MUST have or the stretch to Crysta price is impossible. The extra 6 odd lakhs for the Innova give you more than your 6L worth over the Creta.

Hi,

Sorry for the repeat posts but I just noticed your comment above.

Actually to be fair, I got an SMS from Shinrai late last week (I must have previously made an inquiry about the new Innova), stating that the car will be launched on 2nd May. When I called on Fri & Sat to inquire, I was consistently told that the display vehicle will be in the showroom on Monday 3rd and true to their information, it was there, both in MT & AT guise. To add, they're immediately offering proper TDs (I got a full loop of WSF) of both variants to even walk in customers like me on day one. I'd actually say the launch is very well managed. Prior intimation of launch - check, correct telephone response to availability - check, immediate TD despite no prior appointment and no undue bureaucracy - check. What more can one ask for.

Contrast that with Hyundai where for the last 6 months of inquiry, the south mumbai (Worli as well as 7 Rasta - mostly Worli though) dealers have consistently maintained that they simply do not have an AT Creta to offer for TD - nor have they made any attempts to somehow provide me a TD despite my repeat inquiries. I'd say for a successful mainstream brand with a high volume product, that's extremely poor showing. Lena hai to leh lo attitude. TD nahin ho sakta. The "more helpful" salespersons on the odd occasion offered a Creta MT TD.

I went to check Innova crysta today & Test drove the ZX MT for very short time. I am really impressed with the car overall. I have been told that pricing will be available in couple of days.

If price is good I am all set to buy GX/VX 8 seater version.

Talking about space, seating space is reduced for sure compared to my older gen Innova & This is deal breaker for many. Seat Height is also increased so you will see those aftermarket foot steps on many new Innovas.

Attached is the spec sheet I found there and clicked with my crappy phone camera.

Has anyone who drove Innova Crysta found First gear difficult to engage?

The new Toyota Innova Crysta has just been launched at a starting price of Rs 13.84 lakh for the base trim and going up to Rs 20.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). That is a price difference of Rs 4.20 lakh when comparing the old and new top ends
<<<
I guess on-road price going to be 25L for top end in Hyderabad. The vehicle is on display at Kothaguda/Hyderabad showroom, if anyone interested.

Base price almost same as that of existing model? Fantastic pricing then. They can always charge a premium for the additional features in the top end variants.

Or, am I missing something here?

I agree. And unlike the previous model, the base variants are well equipped with features that matter to the private buyer ( ABS, dual airbags etc ) so they aren't out and out taxi variants.
