Various automobile companies and brands are doing whatever they can in order to help their countries deal with the novel coronavirus. Joining the league of such companies is Toyota-Astra Motor. The company has donated five modified units of Innova to Red Cross and the Indonesian Ministry of Health to help them in combating the COVID-19 disease.
Toyota Innova Crysta, known as Toyota Kijang Innova in Indonesia, is an extremely spacious and comfortable mid-size MPV. The Indonesia-spec model is quite different from the one we have in India. It is available with two engine options.
The first one is a 2.0-litre, naturally aspirated, inline-4 petrol engine. This motor is capable of producing 137 PS and 182 Nm of peak power and torque figures, respectively. The second option is a 2.5-litre, turbocharged, inline-4 diesel mill. This powerplant can generate 102 PS and 200 Nm.
The ambulance we see over here is based on the entry-level variant and comes powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine The engine generates a maximum power of 139 PS and peak torque of 183 Nm. It gets a five-speed manual transmission.
The vehicle has been modified into an ambulance that includes life-saving medical equipment. An LED spotlight has been put behind the tailgate so that there is no difficulty in carrying out the rescue operations at night.
Since the Innova Crysta offers a lot of space, the rear seats of the vehicle have been removed. The floor of the vehicle has been modified and it is completely flat. The foldable stretcher can be mounted easily on the floor and there are two side-facing seats for the paramedics. The car also gets live-saving equipment and devices to monitor the heart rate.
