First, it was the launch of the refreshed Toyota Vios. The Hilux followed not too long after, and right now we’re looking forward to the arrival of the new and improved Fortuner midsize SUV. If the Japanese carmaker continues to follow this pattern, it might only be a matter of time until we see an updated MPV on our shores, too.
Of course, that’s all just speculation at this point. Want to know what isn’t speculation, though? These images of the refreshed Toyota Innova.
The new version of Toyota’s hot-selling seven-seat MPV just dropped in Indonesia, showing off a relatively sportier look and a handful of enhancements.
Most of the alterations to this MPV can be found up front. Toyota has changed the grille, giving the Innova a stealthier look with bolder chrome trim lining the bottom. Below this, you’ll find a much more muscular-looking bumper with a good amount of black plastic. Flanking these components are new-look foglight housings covered in dark plastic, and the vehicle runs on new two-tone wheels as well.
Not much has changed inside, but a new faux wood panel is available for the dashboard for higher-end units. Indonesia also gets a new nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, though there’s still no mention of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Speaking of higher-end units, some of the variants flaunt premium features like interior ambient lighting, and a rear entertainment screen mounted on the center console.
In Indonesia, the new Innova is available with two engines: A 2.0-liter gasoline with 137hp and 183Nm of torque, and a 2.4-liter turbodiesel with 147hp and 342Nm. These can come paired with either a six-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission.
Do you think the refreshed Toyota Innova will arrive in the Philippines within 2020? Also, what do you think of the MPV’s new look? Let us know in the comments.
