- Base Variant GX is too bare bones (Specially the Interiors) even @ 14L Ex-Showroom 
- The Crysta is spread over 15 variants & hence can get confusing for the buy decision & also during resale.

Miscellaneous facts;

- Toyota says there are no carryover parts from the older Innova.  
- The new GD series engines have high thermal efficiency & powerful performance around the world, including extremely cold areas where air temperatures can fall to -40˚C and altitudes exceeding 4500m above sea level.
- The turbocharger of the all new GD series engine is produced in house by Toyota.
- This new Turbo features a newly developed turbine which improves efficiency, and a new impeller that provides immediate acceleration response and produces maximum torque over a wide spread of RPM.
- The A/T Gearbox is supplied by AISIN. 
- AISIN is the same company which supplied boxes for the all new (FWD) BMW X1 as well as XUV 500. The Innova's AC60 is developed for Light Truck & SUV's (RWD platform) 
- The rear brakes are still drum but a size larger. 
- The beautiful dashboard is a 1 piece item made from Injection Moulding of Poly Propylene. 
- Middle Row legroom has increase by 20mm.
- Accessing 3rd row is now easier. 
- Wheelbase remains same as earlier Innova. 
Note: In the video at 5:07 i have mitakenly mentioned the torque as 343 NM instead of 360 NM, apologies for that.

Great! Fuel average?

For the 2.8 A/T you can expect around 9-10 km/l in the city & highway you can expect around 14-14.5 km/l.
