2021 Toyota Innova Crysta facelift design updates
Facelift Innova comes with several cosmetic enhancements, even though the core design has been retained. Most of the visual changes have been incorporated at the front. For example, the grille design has been refreshed and it now has simpler, yet elegant looking horizontal slats. A thick chrome strip borders the grille, which further enhances the car’s visual appeal. Images are credit to Pravesh and George Thomas.
Among other changes, headlights get chrome borders with extensions that seamlessly merge with the front grille. The design of LED DRLs has also been updated. Fog lamps are now housed in a triangular shaped casing and are placed vertically. The updated bumper now looks more rugged, featuring blacked-out elements and a faux, silver coloured skid plate.
Innova facelift side profile has been left largely untouched. However, it does get new 16-inch alloy wheels. The finishing could vary depending on the variant. For example, base variants will have silver finished alloy wheels whereas high-end variants could get diamond-cut alloy wheels. At the rear too, there are minimal changes.
Talking about interiors, the updates include an all-black theme, redesigned instrument cluster, and captain seats in the middle row. A 7-seat variant will also be available.
