New Toyota Innova Crysta 2017 Ride and Handling

The New Toyota Innova Crysta 2017 is a premium vehicle even in the way it runs. Though, the New Toyota Innova Crysta 2017 uses a ladder on frame construction, the ride quality is very composed. It has minimal pitch and roll. This makes it comfortable for long distances. The new chassis is more rigid and even heavier than the earlier Innova. Body roll is very well controlled and it a big step up from the earlier model.

Ride can feel a bit harsh at times, though, on bad surfaces. One thing that can be noticed instantly while driving is the heavy steering wheel. While at high speeds its perfect, it stays heavy even at parking speeds, which is a little bothersome, if you drive yourself. The brakes are excellent and the vehicle holds its line during emergency braking.

I have never praised Bajaj for anything but now this is the time to really appreciate this fantastic machine. I don’t think there is anything left to compare. Dominar is easily the best machine among the above listed bike, hell it is even cheaper than Duke 200. Kudos to Bajaj
