I'm not sure where the reverse camera on the ZX is placed. I will try and check it out on the visit to the service centre. For now, none of the after market guys have the license plate reverse camera for the Crysta. If I can get the OEM one it would be awesome!

Sure thing! I will need better lights as I finally intend to get some road trips under the belt. Looking forward to the meet and the knowledge download as well

On a side note, the car has done over 500 kms with a large part of the driving done in ECO mode. Mileage hovers between 10-14 kmpl on the MID.

Problem I am facing:
The car veers to the left on a flat road if i let go of the steering wheel. I had the same problem in the Vento as well back in 2010 and that was solved after changing the tyres. I wonder what could the issue he here as I've got the air pressure checked as well!

I have already informed my SA and plan to take the car this week. It's a real bummer and frankly I didn't expect this of Toyota. Tyres are Bridgestone B390 I think.

First service done at 1800 kms.

So got the first service done today. Took two hours. Toyota is brilliant compared to their calls and appointments and bookings of service etc.

Very friendly staff at their dealerships.

Explained to the GM regarding the tyre burst and very nicely they took photos and sending it to Bridgestone and said tyres are also covered under warranty but to what extent etc cannot be confirmed by him.

Overall Good car. Supremely comfortable to say the least.

This is among the things I checked because like you I was also keen to get the camera fitted at the place where its on ZX. Its fixed above the license plate, under the chrome plate/garnish. Usually there are two lights there but on ZX there is one I think, other space is occupied by the camera.

I think a good aftermarket accessories guy should be able to fit it, do check with the good ones around. Let me know if you get positive inputs on this.

My bad. You are right. The one I took is the VX variant. I remember it now. 17" has a different alloy design and now when I compare both, it does look bigger and fills the tyre wall.

Are there any HID / Projector options I can consider. Is there a way to retrofit the lights from the VX and ZX?
Disappointing to know that the head lights are not adequate. Can we not manage with the Extreme Vision Lights like the Philips one? I use them on my i10 currently and they perform a better job than the stock ones. Plan to remove them from i10 and use it in the Crysta.

See the position of the reverse camera and the slot its fixed in. There is a cut on the metal only for the VX/ZX variants. This is not present on the GX Variant. As told by the accessories guy, if one needs to get the reverse camera for the GX in the same position as VX/ZX, then we need to order a new part which will have this cut and then additional wiring for the same. The cost estimation would come around 20k.

Update on the fuel efficiency of the 2.4litre engine:18KMPL

We did our first long road trip in the New Crysta(around 250Kms).
We tried to maintain the RPM around 2000(80KMPH in 5th gear)

The aim was to get the maximum mileage possible in the real world.

The attached image was taken around 173 kms after reset
Drive mode:Eco

We were pleasantly surprised by the super efficient engine (18kmpl) and the smooth ride which can put many expensive cars to shame.

Can you please update the FE figure using a full-to-full method?

BTW, is that the Zx or Vx version?

Toyota to launch petrol variant of Innova Crysta around Diwali

Quote:
To resurrect sales in the Delhi-NCR regions after the diesel ban, Toyota is developing a 2.7-litre petrol engine for the Innova Crysta.

The all-new Toyota Innova Crysta has been launched in India with two diesel engine options. But since December the Supreme Court has imposed the diesel ban in the Delhi-NCR region which, in turn, has affected sales of the new vehicle. To make the Innova Crysta available in these regions, the Japanese manufacturer will now be introducing a petrol variant of the same by the festive season of Diwali.

None of them in NCR till last week. Probably by mid-July you can expect them in showrooms.

The 2.7 litre petrol is not a new engine, it has being doing duty in the Thai Fortuner since several years now.

Are you sure that the Crysta will come with a 2.7 litre engine?
I am asking because the older Innova used to come with a 2 litre engine.

It is a good engine with a decent fuel economy of 12 KMPL

I enquired last week with Galaxy Toyota Moti Nagar, Delhi and they said it could be available after June 24, so asked me to check after that.

Hello,

Owing to NGT diesel ban in Delhi and Kerala, is it really worth spending on Innova Crysta?
Anytime they can declare the ban in other states as well. Especially Karnataka, Bangalore.

The vehicle will have to be scrapped after 10 years.
and so my worry is the resale value will be nothing, and no demands.

I heard that there is an iminent ban in 11 more metros.

Not fair to the manufacturers who have spent millions of Dollars and don't get an heads up about the ban
