With the introduction of the Innova Crysta, Toyota substantially increased the price and is out of perch for many customers who are on a tight budget. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is a capable and versatile MUV at a much lower price point. We expect the car to be launched during Diwali time this calendar year.
