The BSVI 2.4-litre diesel engine in the Toyota Innova Crysta has expanded into offering automatic transmission in place of the 2.8-litre unit
Toyota has introduced the BSVI version of its highly popular Innova Crysta in the Indian market today, well ahead of the March 31, 2020 deadline. The Japanese auto major has presented the BSVI upgrades in the 2.4-litre 2GD-FTV four-cylinder diesel and the 2.7-litre petrol engines as the bigger 2.8-litre diesel engine has been discontinued.
The Innova Crysta used to be sold with 2.8-litre automatic transmission and it helped in expanding the range. To not endure a disadvantage, the automatic transmission now features on the 2.4-litre GD series unit instead with a six-speed AT. The 2.7-litre petrol continues to kick out 164 bhp at 5,200 rpm and 245 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm in its BSVI avatar.
The engine is paired with a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic with 11.25 kmpl and 10.75 kmpl claimed mileage. The 2.4-litre turbocharged VGT diesel delivers 143 bhp at 3,400 rpm and 343 Nm torque at 1,400 rpm. It is ARAI-certified to return 15.1 kmpl fuel economy. The 2.4 GX 7S AT variant is priced at Rs. 18.17 lakh while the 2.4 GX 8S AT costs Rs. 18.22 lakh.
