Innova Crysta makes you feel like you are sitting in an uber modern lounge and not just a car. Toyota has worked extensively to make the details stand out and to make it a very harmonious design.

The next thing to catch your attention is the 4.2-inch TFT screen that sits bang in the middle of the dash. Now this screen does not fit flush into the dashboard, but still looks quite funky.

if you’re bored driving on a highway, you can even set fuel-efficiency targets, with the screen telling you how well you have fared. Pretty neat and especially usefull for all the  milage obsessed. It also gets plenty of storage, including two gloveboxes for knick-knacks. These can hold as many as twenty-one one-litre bottles and was designed keeping the Indian customer and the hot Indian climate in mind.

Boot Space:

Toyota Innova Crysta has a decent sized boot with all rows up. However, fold the third row and what you get is acres of luggage space. Enough to relocate appliances of a house.


The speedometer on the Toyota Innova Crysta is easy to read an uncluttered. It has all the details needed by the driver.

Back Seats:

the rear seats feel very comfortable. Now these are all-new seats that Toyota have designed considering the long distance driving most Innova are used for in the private and commercial market. They can now accommodate larger frames more easily and provide better support as well. Rear passengers also get a tray attached to the back of the front seats to place laptops or for refreshments.

15.1 kmpl for Diesel and Petrol as well

Innova Crysta has a decent claimed mileage of 15kmpl (overall) which, for its size, is appreciable. Needless to say, the Innova Crysta being from Toyota’s stable is reliable and low on the pocket. It is best to have a car that has high ground clearance.


Now the Innova is supposed to carry six to seven  people across country or within the confines of the city, and that is a task that it carries out with assurance. Ride quality is better than before and the Crysta soaks in bumps and potholes with ease. The larger 17-inch tyres, along with the re-calibrated suspension, work brilliantly.
