Battle of MPVs: Innova Crysta vs Tata Aria specs comparision

With introduction of the New Innova Crysta, Toyota has somehow created a new segment like ‘Premium MPV’. New generation of Toyota’s segment leader car is indeed equipped with much more style, luxury and comfort. But at the end of course, it’s about beating the rivals and being the first choice of the customer. The Crysta might not have any direct rival in the segment and the price range though but there is another MPV that can be considered as an option if the priority of the customer is only getting an MPV and it is the Tata Aria.

Tata Aria is a 7 seater car with price range of ₹ 11- 16.25 lakh while the Crysta’a price goes upto ₹ 20.78 lakh for the top variant. Here we are comparing mid variant of the Crysta with the top spec version of the Aria, considering the price tag which falls almost same for both.

Looking at the performance, Crysta definitely steals the show with powerful 2.8L engine and much better output of power and torque than the Aria. Also it gets the Automatic transmission which is missing in the Tata’s MPV. Aria though has All wheel drive available in the top spec which is not there in the Innova Crysta.
