There is a switch where you can off and on this feature. I keep it off at all times. It switches off the a/c in my c class at signals and i dont like my car start and stop @ 20 sec stops. I havent calculated mileage bonus with this feature and trust me you will hate it to core.

Yes, I agree. If the speed falls from cruising speed, you need to change more often than say a 5 speed MT. Well, i20 has a short 6th ratio and thereby more forgiving with speed variation.

Can you please share the RPM at 100 and 120 kmph at 6th on your Touring Sport? I'm just curious to know.

Well you are on impression that I have 6 speed but I have only 5 speed manual. I dont think toyota have launched 6 speed yet and might take a while to do so. I am just speculating the features based on my cars and yes its 2.2 lks expensive than a V variant.

2) Our 2.4 ZX was the first Innova Crysta in the country to be retrofitted with those LED fog lamps, and I must say that they are a boon in city traffic.

5) After a minor incident, I make sure everyone seated in the car is belted up, no matter how small the distance is, and I advise you to do the same.

That booming sound that comes in when the revs drop a bit too much, mainly in 3rd gear, gives me a headache. It forces one to drop a cog, and given how rubbery the shifts are, itís annoying. That is one of the main reasons why I like the AT over my MT.
I would however point out, that the engine isnít as tractable as our XUV 5OO. One canít just stay in any gear and continue to drive without downshifting on the Innova Crysta.

I'm pretty sure the Touring Sport 2.4 diesel is 6 speed MT because my neighbour has one. I dread looking at those black alloys though but I'll still take it for the 6 speeder.

Re: Toyota Innova Crysta : Official Review

Older 2.4 Touring sport came with 5 Speed but new iterations(Post Sep 2017 manufactured) should come with 6 speed. The touring sport cost about 30-40K cheaper than 2.4 ZX. If top notch safety is your priority , look no further go and get a ZX. 6 Speed should offer you better cruisability and quieter cabin at higher speeds.

Even the iMT which is available on the 6 speed gearbox looks like an interesting technology for a smoother ride. -

I booked my car in mid September, and they were already taking bookings of the updated Touring Sport back then.
Also, just to be very sure, I cross checked with my SA a couple of minutes ago & he said I could make a booking tomorrow if I wanted.

Congratulation Sparkled. That's a very good deal. After putting all my effort I could manage only half of it for a Zx AT . Is it a cash discount or Cash + accessories deal ?

It's available and I have seen the 6 speed at the dealership in October itself.

Yes it is an all cash discount. It has been a very good experience so far. I think I got lucky with my color choice (Silver) which was dispatched from the factory and will be arriving at the stock yard early next week. I have been promised about 5% discount on the accessories too. Only catch here was that I have taken their expensive quoted insurance and opted for the 3 year Toyota finance scheme. Maybe that is why they have agreed to give me that discount. So the quoted price for GX AT was 20.47L and with the 1.25L discount I am paying 19.22L.

Mine is manufactured in july 18. But I called toyota on their 1800 no a week back and they said they have only 5 mt and 6 auto gear box for touring sport. They also took my details and will let me know when available. I been to showroom last week for rubber mats but didnt bother to enquire. Any way thanks for the info , I was worried about spares for these limited editions.

That looks simply marvelous. I will definitely be doing this to our Innova as well. Do you know if it's a simple plug and play retrofit or are there modifications required in terms of wiring? Our 2.7ZX has factory halogens but I've been waiting for LEDs to come out ever since I read the article back in September. I'd hate to void the factory warranty which is why I ask.

Thanks!

They are the exact same fog lamps that are now being offered in the Innova Crysta Touring Sport & the Fortuner, so there is absolutely no chance of voiding the factory warranty.
These Koito LED fog lamps are 100% plug ní play & you can order them and get them fitted at your nearest T.A.S.S.
If at all they ask for the part number, it is as follows:
RHS - A-81210-48051
LHS - A-81220-48051
