Toyota will offer the Innova Crysta only with a gasoline engine.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor has confirmed that its dealers have temporarily stopped taking reservations for Innova Crysta diesel variants. This was done because the waiting period for the minivan was increasing due to very high demand. Toyota also announced that it would endeavor to supply diesel Innovas to customers who already had a reservation with a dealership.

The exact reason for the supply shortage is still undisclosed, but it could be the semiconductor shortage problem that all manufacturers are currently facing. Toyota will continue to accept reservations for the gas-powered Innova Crysta.

Toyota offers the Innova with two engine options. There is a naturally aspirated 2.7-liter gasoline engine and a 2.4-liter diesel engine. The naturally aspirated engine produces 164 hp of maximum power and 245 Nm of maximum torque while the diesel engine produces a maximum power of 148 hp and 360 Nm of maximum torque. Both engines are offered with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

The Innova has been a very successful product for Toyota since its introduction in 2005. So far, Toyota has sold nearly one million units of the Innova. This is due to the reliability, relatively low maintenance cost and durability associated with the brand. The Innova has seen success in the personal and commercial segments.

The current price of the Innova Crysta starts at 17.86 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to 26.54 lakh (former showroom). It is offered in five variants, G, G+, GX, VX and ZX. The customer can opt for a seven-seat configuration or an eight-seat configuration.

Toyota Innova Crysta has to compete with Mahindra Marazzo and Kia Carens. It also has to go against the Kia Carnival which is considered a premium minivan and priced in a higher segment.
