The new Innova Crysta diesel will be officially relaunched by Toyota, with the manufacturer revealing the pricing details for the MPV sometime around early February this year. Toyota India recently announced that it has resumed taking orders for the new Innova Crysta for a token amount of Rs 50,000, though no information regarding the launch was provided. It is anticipated that the deliveries for the new Crysta will commence by late April. The MPV comes in five colour options: White Pearl Crystal Shine, Superwhite, Silver, Attitude Black, and Avant Garde Bronze. Customers who are interested in purchasing the new Innova Crysta can do so at dealer outlets or through the company's official website. Meanwhile, the Innova Hycross, an MPV based on the Innova Crysta with a powerful hybrid powertrain, was introduced months ago. After a brief absence to make way for the Hycross, the updated Innova Crysta has returned to the market. It will only be available with a diesel-manual engine and will be offered in four trim levels: G, Gx, Vx, and Zx.

The 2023 Innova Crysta is positioned as a more affordable alternative for the recently launched Hycross. The 2.4-litre diesel engine is retained and is probably updated to comply with upcoming emission standards, but the six-speed automatic transmission is dropped in favour of a five-speed manual transmission. Additionally, it has two drive modes: power drive and eco drive. The engine's previous ratings were 148bhp and 343Nm, and the updated model's performance ratings may slightly differ.
The diesel-only Toyota Innova Crysta is expected to cost more than the base-spec petrol Toyota Innova Hycross, with a starting price of Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the Crysta will continue to be less expensive than the Hycross models with more features. The two MPVs will continue to be placed above the Kia Carens and below the Kia Carnival.

The new Innova Crysta has been updated with a bolder front fascia similar to the Hycross. It will have an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, auto air conditioning with rear vents, and ambient lighting. The MPV's safety features include seven airbags, front and rear parking sensors, vehicle stability control, and hill assist. It comes standard with a seven-seat layout, and all variants, except the top-spec Zx trim, have the option of an eight-seat layout. The upholstery will be available in two colours: Camel Tan and Black.
