Is the Toyota Innova Crysta a good highway cruiser?

    The Innova Crysta has a torquey diesel engine and a spacious cabin, which makes it a perfect upgrade from an XL6 or an Ertiga.

    Toyota Innova Crysta

    I am considering buying a 7-seater Toyota Innova Crysta 2.4 GX as a replacement for my Maruti Suzuki XL6 AT. Is it a wise decision? I am not happy with the highway performance of the current car, and only want MPVs as I am 6ft 2in tall. What should I do?

    Autocar India says: The XL6 is a very well-sorted MPV, but as you’ve rightly said, it is down on power and has to be worked hard on the highway. The Crysta’s torquey diesel engine feels effortless on the highway and can cruise comfortably all day long without breaking a sweat. It is more spacious than the XL6 too, so will be comfortable for someone of your height. If performance and comfort are important to you, then it’s worth switching to the diesel Crysta. Toyota has discontinued the Innova Crysta automatic, so if you'd prefer the convenience, look for a good used Innova Crysta.

    Problem is Toyota is facing the heat of it's own "diesel gate", whether this will be available to sale in the future is a big ?? Most probably Toyota can re-launch in a Petrol/Hybrid avatar: same goes for the Fortuner and Hi Lux.

    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
