Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) on Monday launched improved versions of its popular multi-purpose vehicle Innova Crysta and SUV Fortuner priced in the range of Rs 14.93-33.60 lakh (ex-showroom).
The new Innova Crysta will now have features such as heat rejection glass, perforated leather seats, option of new ivory leather upholstery and USB fast charging port, TKM said in a statement.
The new Innova Crysta will be available in the price range of Rs 14.93-22.43 lakh, while the Innova Touring Sport is tagged between Rs 18.92 lakh and Rs 23.47 lakh (all prices ex-showroom), the company added.
The new Fortuner will also have features like heat rejection glass and seat perforation and is priced between Rs 27.83 lakh and Rs 33.60 lakh (ex-showroom). “In line with the feedback from customers we are happy to incorporate our customer preferences in select grades of the Innova Crysta and the Fortuner in terms of interiors and comfort,” TKM Deputy Managing Director N Raja said.
Recently, the Japanese automaker decided to increase the prices of its cars from the month of April in order to offset rise in input costs.
“We have been absorbing additional costs through a bouquet of cost reduction measures including refinement in production process. However, considering the trend of continuous increase, we are constrained to pass on a small portion to the customers,” TKM Deputy Managing Director N Raja said in a statement.
The company will continue its efforts to contain costs and offer the best value to its loyal customers, he added. TKM, however, did not disclose the models that would become costlier. The company sells a range of products including popular multi-purpose vehicle Innova and premium sports utility vehicle Fortuner.
Fellow Japanese automaker Honda last week logged a net-profit fall of 34.5 percent for the nine months to December but revised up its full-year forecasts thanks to strong motorcycle sales.
