Totally agreed on this.

In my experience, the crysta is much much better than the old Innova with regards to highway cruising.

I have done 3500 rpm on the highways for hours together and the car just did fine. The old Innova would just annoy me with the engine boom beyond 110 kmph.

Infact, the crysta 2.4 is as capable a cruiser as my Storme Varicor 400. Crysta 2.8 is even better.

Even with the absence of the 6th gear in the 2.4 MT Crysta?

Compared to Old Innova, yes. Compared to storme, the NVH is better in the Tata, but the crysta doesn't leave you for the want of performance. That said, varicor 400 is among the most refined motors in the segment (>2 L MPV/7 seater). Honestly Crysta is a complete improvement over old Innova when it comes to performance and interiors.

Hey All,
Does anyone know what the cost of the 360 camera is ? The dealer is quoting around 28K (1 yr warranty) . Is that a reasonable price? I am planning to get some electrical stuff done via the dealer with the hope that the quality of work will be good.

Any suggestions and indications of the prices will be really good.

Thank you for the detailed reply. Yes my driving has been aggressive with power mode on most times. With a little one joining the family few months I have toned down my driving style. Got the vehicle inspected at Toyota service centre. The pad thickness was 4mm and SA advised it will last atleast 3000-4000 kms. I was informed that there is a metal indicator which will make sound before the pad completely wears down. The disc donít need lathe polishing as of now.
Is it ok to wait for the metal sound before I take a call to replace the brake pads?
Or should I get preventive pad replacement now?
At what thickness should the replacement be considered?

Thanks and regards

Bravo

Anyone hearing a squeaking noise from under the hood after a cold start?

I'd never, on my 2019 Crysta 2.4VX manual that has done 25000km, until last week. I suspect the drive belt but ... so soon?! An important point to note is that this happened post a cold start after I'd driven down from home in Mumbai to Bangalore where it had been raining persistently. Maybe the belt has gone stiff due to the long spell of rain that it has been through?

3-4 mm thickness is less and is risky to keep driving on. Itís sometimes difficult to keep track of such maintenance, Better to proactively change the pads, If you have an emergency where you need to drive out of city etc. you may end up being stranded.

Guys, I made the down payment and completed the loan documentation today for Innova Crytsa VX Avant Garde Bronze color 7S variant today at Ravindu Toyota, Rajajinagar, Bangalore. The delivery should be by next week since they had this vehicle in their inventory already (someone had cancelled the booking and went for XUV700 it seems). Other variants GX & ZX were 1-2 months waiting period.

Any suggestions on the accessories to go for before delivery? I was planning to take the side footstep (aged parents at home), rear bumper guard (Bangalore you see!) and body cover. Anything else I should opt for?

The sales guy was trying to convince me on the Nappa leather seat covers for 75k. Is this really that necessary?

Lastly any other checks I need to do before delivery apart from PDI - basically checks that are specific to Innova?

Dashboard wood finish (INR 4k), Anti corrosive coating (INR 5k) and Sun film on Windows and Rear windscreen (INR 9k). The sunfilm protected my parents when a stone hit my rear windshield.

Semi leather seat covers (~INR 15k) will do.

Discuss with the SA about making the PDI before registration and coordinate with accessories team to ensure you get the required items installed when you take delivery. Items like Dashcams are not in stock now.

Yes, you are right, VX comes with wood ornaments. Thanks for highlighting.

Sun films are banned right? Especially in Bangalore! Also I think VX variant comes with UV cut glass or Heat Rejection Glass which should help in reducing the sun glare. Not sure about the front windshield though.

I meant white transparent film. I recommended it not for reducing heat but to safeguard occupants in case of stone hit in window glass or rear windshield. Attached a pic of my car where you can see the transparent film saved the glass particle not fell on rear seat occupants. Please check with service experts whether the heat rejection glass don't shatter. Generally, Front windshields are made of laminated glass which won't shatter into pieces and will just allow cracks. Rear and windows are toughened glass which will shatter into pieces on impact.

The glass is already laminated internally and even if broken, the pieces don't pose any significant risk to the occupants. Unless it's from the OEM I don't prefer any films.

Only the front glass is laminated. Not the rest of it. The moment it breaks, it would shatter into small pieces and disintegrate.
