2021 Toyota Innova Crysta with new design spied in Indonesia, India launch next year

Written by Nizam Shaikh

Toyota is bringing in the facelift model of its much-popular MPV the Innova Crysta in the South-East Asian market. The Innova Crysta is marketed as the Kijang Innova in Indonesia and according to sources a new spy image of the facelift model leads us to believe that the Innova will be updated soon, at least internationally. The Innova Crysta in Indonesia is likely to come with mild changes to its exteriors along wilth some changes on the interiors but the powertrain is likely to be retained from the outgoing model. 

According to the images, the Toyota Innova Crysta appears to get a new grille design with multiple horizontal slats on the grille finished in gloss black with chrome accents on the outer end, refreshed headlamp units with chrome inserts that incorporate the lights with the grille, a refreshed front bumper, a new skid plate effect and a new alloy wheel design. While only front three quarters of the Innova are seen in the pictures, it is safe to hypothesize that the MPV is also likely to come with a mildly updated rear apron that reverberates with the front. While no reports or spyshots of the interiors are reported as of now and the changes on the interiors may not be significant. 

In the engine department, the facelift model is likely to be powered by the same engine line-up, a 2.0-litre petrol or a 2.4-litre diesel powertrains in the Indonesian market and no major upgrades to the engines are expected. In the Indian market, Toyota updated the Innova Crysta with BS6 compliant engines on both the petrol and diesel variants. The Innova Crysta in India is powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder Common Rail Turbocharged Diesel with Intercooler equipped with a Variable Nozzle Turbocharger, 16 Valve, DOHC that produces 150 PS of power and 343 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox and 360 Nm of torque with a 6-speed sequential-shift automatic transmission alongside the 2TR-FE 2.7-litre four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC Dual VVT petrol engine that produces 166 PS of power and 245 Nm of torque matched to a 5-speed manual and an optional 6-speed sequential-shift automatic gearbox. 

The Innova Crysta was only updated with the new engines mentioned above, this year when it transitioned in to the stringent BS6 compliance and the brand may bring the facelift model later in 2021.
