Prices and variants

The tentative price list we released a while back actually checks out. For 2021, the Innova does get significant price bumps across the range. The gasoline variants, meanwhile, have indeed been cut from the lineup. In case you missed it, you can check out the updated price list below.

Exterior

The facelifted Innova gets only a few design tweaks, but they’re changes you’ll see right away. The front fascia has been made more macho thanks to a more pronounced grille, a bulkier bumper, and some added black plastic trim.

In the top-spec V variants, the Innova gets a new gloss-black finish on the liftgate. However, only the G and E variants get the snazzy 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels. Other than that, no further changes can be seen on the exterior.

Interior

Inside, the Innova gets minor changes, too. There are still no leather seats available across the range, but top-of-the-line variant does get Noble Brown fabric seats as well as some additional faux-wood plastic accents on the dash and the tiller.

As with previous Innovas, the range-topping V variant comes with captain’s seats. The overall layout of the cabin also remains pretty much the same.

Engine and specs

Under the hood, the Innova still packs a 2.8-liter 1GD-FTV turbodiesel that’s capable of 171hp and 360Nm of torque in variants with six-speed automatic transmissions, or 167hp and 343Nm in those with five-speed manuals. The new 201hp, 500Nm 2.8-liter turbodiesel in the updated Fortuner and the facelifted Hilux remain unavailable with the Innova.

There’s an independent double-wishbone suspension setup with coil springs up front and a four-link suspension with coil springs out back. Stopping power is provided by ventilated discs and leading-trail drum brakes fore and aft, respectively.

Extra features

There aren’t that many toys to play around with, but there are some nifty safety features equipped in the Innova nonetheless. All variants save for the base J get a new infotainment system that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There’s still no Toyota Safety Sense available in this roster, though.

The top-spec V variant features a smart keyless entry system with push-to-start ignition to boot. Speed-sensing door locks, automatic climate control, and a reversing camera with parking sensors are also available on both G and V variants. Power-adjustable seats, however, remain unavailable across the range.
