Toyota introduced a new entry-level G Plus variant in Innova Crysta, powered by 2.4 L MT diesel engine with the option of 7 and 8 seat configurations
Toyota Innova Crysta is the best selling MPV in its segment and it is currently available in 4 variants – GX, VX, ZX and Touring Sport. Now the company has silently introduced a new G+ variant, which is new entry-level model but the brochure and the official website is yet to be updated, so the details of features are not yet revealed.
The G Plus variant is available only with a diesel engine and it comes in 7 and 8-seat configuration. We are expecting the company to add more features on the new G Plus variant compared to the previous entry-level G model which discontinued due to low demand last year.
There are no details on G Plus variant’s features but the next variant (GX) comes with features like touch screen infotainment system, electronically controlled exterior mirrors, puddle lights, multi-function steering wheel, speed and impact sensing doors, LED fog lamps, rear fog lamps, Emergency brake signal and an anti-theft alarm with glass break. So we can expect the basic music system with some standard safety features like Reverse parking sensors, Airbags and ABS in G Plus for sure. Alloy wheels likely not to be available in G Plus variant along with touch screen music system.
The company has packed the MPV with lots of safety features as standard like a driver, front passenger and driver knee airbags (7-airbag on top end model), ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, ISOFIX, clutch start system, seat belt warning, door ajar warning with each door display on the instrument cluster and immobilizer.
All variant of Innova Crysta come with GOA body which is a high strength body structure that effectively absorbs impact and distributes it evenly. The G Plus variant is likely to be available in five colour options – Garnet Red, Avant-Garde Bronze, Silver, Grey and Super White. The White Pearl Crystal Shine is available only on top-spec variants.
The Innova Crysta G Plus is powered by 2.4 L common rail diesel engine producing 150 PS of power at 3,400 rpm and 343 Nm of max torque between 1,400 – 2,800 rpm. This engine is mated to 5-speed manual gearbox and it returns 15.1 Km/l. The new variant rides on 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/65 section tyres. The G+ variant is priced at Rs. 15.57 lakh for 7-seater and Rs. 15.62 lakh for 8-seater.
