The Toyota Innova Crysta bookings have surpassed 15,000 units in a span of 10 days, highlighting the immense popularity the nameplate enjoys in India. The highly impressive response for the new gen model strongly indicates that Toyota’s decision to move its MPV into the premium category has paid off.
The new vehicle is over 4 lakhs more expensive than the retired model (comparing the top-end variants) but has a lot of goodies to show for it. If the momentum continues, the Innova Crysta bookings for the first month would cover several months’ worth production, leading to a long waiting period.
