Comparison Verdict


The Toyota Innova Crysta continues to dominate the premium MPV space in India, but as far as this comparison goes, the upcoming Hyundai Alcazar’s equipment list is far superior than the beloved Toyota MPV. However, the Toyota Innova Crysta has more powerful powertrains, and the brand value that it has rightfully earned over the years in the country.
