The leg room and head room is more than adequate in first and second row of Hexa and Crysta. As far as third row is concerned, a normal person having height 5"8 or 5"10 can easily sit in Hexa. But leg room is not adequate for such persons in Crysta.


However both these Utility Vehicles have Captain Seats in their middle row which is well cushioned and offers you a luxurious feel.


Since Innova Crysta is a MPV, it will make you feel that you are driving quite bigger car. But, Hexa will give you the feeling of both SUV as well as MUV. Thanks to its ground clearance and 4WD system.


Well Toyota is a reputed japanese brand which gives immense satisfaction to its customer regarding its product and services. Even Tata has also made a great move to provide satisfaction to its customers like "Repair At Sight" option through mobile vans.


The Innova holds a stronger position in the market due to its performance, luxury, and car like feel but it lacks in the features that Hexa is providing. Being a cheaper car in this segment it also has Super Drive Modes, 4 Wheel Drive, Excellent Sound System and ofcourse looks. Infact it is more longer and wider than Crysta. So winner for this comparison is Tata Hexa. Tata has done a wonderful job by improving its Aria.
