Best Big Family Cars to Buy in India - Check 2020 Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift vs Kia Carnival Comparison
Till now no one has challenged the mighty Innova Crysta and even now the Crysta manages more than 40 percent market share despite Kia Carnival and MG Hector Plus coming in. But now with the new Innova Crysta coming with greater features, it is clear that Toyota wants to grab even more market share. In this comparison, we talk about how the new Innova is when compared to the big Kia.
New Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift vs Kia Carnival - Design
Both cars are quite different with the Carnival being a monocoque MPV and the Innova being a ladder-frame MPV. What is the difference? Well the Innova has more toughness much like a SUV while the Carnival is built for more comfort and car-like manners. The Carnival is also much bigger than the Innova at a length of 5115mm while the Innova is 4735mm. The Carnival is huge and more van-like but you like the design of the car overall for sure. The Innova now has a new look with the facelift and the grille has more chrome while there are new alloys while even the bumper has been changed. As a result, the new Innova looks more premium and closer to the expensive looking Carnival even if not matching for size.
New Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift vs Kia Carnival - Interior
This is why you buy an MPV and that is the interior. These are premium MPVs hence should be practical and also have enough luxury features. In the Carnival, you have seven, eight and nine-seater variants on offer with the top-end being available with the seven-seater variant only. The Innova comes with seven and eight-seater options.
The Innova Crysta in its new top-end trims gets a lot more features and that takes it closer to the Carnival. The Carnival gets a dual sunroof, electric parking brake, ventilated driver seat and power-adjustable plus wireless charging, Nappa leather plus front parking sensors, connected tech, air purifier, three-zone climate control, rear entertainment screens and foot-rests.
The Innova Crysta finally gets a bigger touchscreen plus which has smartphone connectivity along with the fact that it has leather seats, front parking sensors, and rear table. It misses out on the sunroof or the screens like the Carnival though. The Innova has 7 airbags vs the 6 in the Carnival.
New Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift vs Kia Carnival - Engine
The Innova Crysta offers you a petrol engine, unlike the Carnival. The Innova petrol is a 2.7 litre 166 bhp engine while the 2.4 litre diesel with 150 bhp is also there. There is a 5-speed manual standard and a 6-speed automatic. The Carnival gets a 2.2l diesel with 200 bhp and an 8-speed torque converter. There is no manual.
New Toyota Innova Crysta Facelift vs Kia Carnival - Price
The Carnival starts at Rs 25 lakh while the top-end version is Rs 34 lakh. The Innova Crysta is priced between Rs 16.2 lakh to Rs 22.4 lakh. That is a massive price difference and where the Innova stops is when the Carnival begins. Hence if your budget is bigger and you want a purely city based luxury MPV, then the Carnival is a good choice since it has luxury and features the Innova does not have. The Innova looks more premium now and finally has more features but the real USP remains and that is the fact that it is a lot more rugged than the Carnival and the reliability of the Innova is untouched. Being much cheaper and smaller plus being more SUV like with the tough suspension also helps. The Innova Crysta pretty much will continue to have the biggest market share.
