Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has announced that the company is presently suspending orders for the diesel variant of the Innova Crysta. The decision has been taken due to the increasing waiting periods of the car. Toyota will continue to take orders for the petrol variant.
The Toyota Innova was originally launched in 2005, and has dominated the MPV market since. In a statement clarifying its decision, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “Due to a very high demand pattern which has resulted in an increased waiting period for the diesel variant of Innova Crysta, TKM has decided to temporarily stop taking orders for the diesel variant.”
