Toyota Innova Crysta’s price has increased by up to Rs. 27,000 while the Fortuner sees a hike between Rs.
53,000 and Rs. 58,000
Toyota has the Innova and Fortuner as its top-selling products in the Indian market. While the premium MPV registered a cumulative sale of over 74,000 units last year, Fortuner did its share of profit for the Japanese manufacturer by averaging over 2,000 units in the same twelve month period. Toyota offers the Innova Crysta in a total of 18 variants and its price has been increased by as much as Rs. 27,000.
Across different trims, the Innova Crysta price has hiked between Rs. 22,400 and Rs. 27,000. In India, the MPV with seven- or eight-seat configuration is sold in two diesel and one petrol engine options. The 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with VNT Intercooler develops 150 PS at 3,400 rpm and 343 Nm of torque between 1,400 and 2,800 rpm on MT while 2.8-litre GD engine makes 174 PS at 3,400 rpm with 360 Nm of torque on the MT as well as AT variants delivered between 1,200 and 3,400 rpm.
The petrol engine is a 2.7-litre four-cylinder unit with Dual VVT-i producing 166 PS and 245 Nm of torque with MT and AT options. As part of the price jump, Toyota has upped the Fortuner’s price tag as well. It ranges between Rs. 53,000 and Rs. 58,000 for the two-wheel-drive automatic variant. The range-topping 4×4 AT sees a price increase of Rs. 37,000. The latest generation Fortuner competes against the Ford Endeavour and is retailed in seven different trims with two engine options.
It uses the same 2.7-litre petrol and 2.8-litre diesel engines from the Innova Crysta. While the diesel is made available in both 4×2 and 4×4 choices, the petrol motor comes with a two-wheel-drive configuration only. Toyota understood the growing importance of a petrol powertrain and launched the 2.7-litre petrol motor three months after the diesel’s arrival while the Touring Sport edition was added to the lineup only in May 2017. Recently, a TRD edition was included to the Fortuner as a new top-spec model.
