Toyota Innova Crysta pricing vs competitors
The new entry-level petrol pricing reduces the Innova’s starting price – it now ranges from Rs 16.89 lakh to Rs 25.32 lakh – but it remains in a segment of its own when compared to other traditional MPVs. The Maruti Ertiga and XL6 are priced at Rs 7.69 lakh-10.69 lakh and Rs 9.98 lakh-11.86 lakh, respectively, for petrol-only models.
Meanwhile, the diesel-only Mahindra Marazzo, with prices starting at Rs 12.42 lakh and rising to Rs 14.49 lakh, undercuts the Innova. The Kia Carnival is priced between Rs 25.49 lakh and Rs 34.49 lakh. The Innova, on the other hand, is expected to face competition from the upcoming new Kia Carens, which is expected to be priced between Rs 12 lakh and Rs 20 lakh.
