Toyota could bring back Innova Crysta diesel to India in 2023

Written by Rohit Tonapi

Last month, reports came in that Toyota dealerships across the country had stopped taking orders for the Innova Crysta Diesel. The reason for this was initially unknown. However, Toyota quickly released a statement saying that it was a temporary halt due to the high demand for the MPV. Now, as per new information, Toyota could bring back the diesel version of the MPV at the start of next year. 

Toyota To Bring Back Innova Crysta Diesel

As per sources, Toyota will bring back the Innova Crysta diesel to the Indian market from January 2023. According to the source, Toyota’s factory is undergoing a line modification. The modification is likely for its upcoming mid-size hybrid SUV, the Urban Cruiser Hyryder. Alternatively, it could also be for the upcoming hybrid-MPV, Toyota Innova Hycross.

When it does come back, it will continue to use the same engine. Thus, it will continue to use the 2.4-litre turbo-diesel mill. This engine makes 148 HP and 360 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, Toyota continues to sell the Innova Crysta petrol with a 2.7-litre petrol engine. The brand also introduced a limited edition recently.

Other Updates

There was also news that Toyota has stopped producing the Innova Crysta diesel. This was because the diesel MPV failed to meet the BS6 emission regulation test during COP tests. 

On the other hand, there is a new Innova on the cards. Toyota will call it the Innova Hycross. According to the latest reports, the brand will unveil it after the festival season. There are also reports that Toyota could launch it in January 2023. Unlike the Innova Crysta, it will only come with a hybrid powertrain, and Toyota will sell it alongside the Innova Crysta.

The Japanese brand also launched the Innova Crysta Limited Edition in India. This new limited edition is based on the Innova Crysta GX petrol variant. It will be available with manual and automatic gearbox options. The manual retails for INR 17.45 lakh ex-showroom. Meanwhile, the automatic comes with a sticker price of INR 19.02 lakh ex-showroom.
