Toyota Innova Crysta petrol variant coming this Diwali

Toyota Innova Crysta petrol variant coming this Diwali

Toyota is planning to launch a petrol variant of the recently launched Innova Crysta for the Indian market. This version will come powered by a 2.7-litre petrol mill, which is under development in Japan.

The Supreme Court's diesel ban in India has had an effect on the sales for the carmaker. Sales of their cars have fallen. Also, the changing preferences of consumers from diesel to petrol has made Toyota consider introducing a petrol Innova Crysta for the Indian market. At present, the new MPV is offered in 2.8-litre and 2.4-litre engine options, but only in diesel. The former comes mated to a new six-speed manual transmission, while the latter is paired to a five-speed manual gearbox.

Toyota had earlier confirmed that they can provide additional engine options for the Innova Crsyta. This would depend on the customer preference and the requirement for the same. For the Thailand and Indonesian market, there is already a Crysta powered by a 2.0-litre petrol unit. However, the automaker is developing a new 2.7-litre petrol motor for our country to comply with our regulations mandate.

N Raja, director and senior vice president, sales and marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor, said, "We have seen our sales coming down by 800 units a month in Delhi since December after the Supreme Court ban. To address this issue, we have fast tracked the development of a 2.7-litre petrol engine. The R&D engineers in Japan are working on the new engine. We plan to launch the petrol variant of Innova Crysta in Delhi-NCR markets by Diwali this year.

The petrol Innova Crysta will not only help Toyota to stop their dropping sales, but also boost them. If we consider the MPV market in India; it garners around 35,000 units of sales per month. The new petrol version should help the carmaker increase their share in this segment and strengthen their leadership.
