You may have already heard about the rumors that Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is gearing up to launch the facelifted Innova. Like most of you, we’ve been waiting patiently for TMP’s confirmation that the 2021 model is set to make its local debut.
But now, we’re really, really close to saying that the launch is already a done deal. No, we haven’t received spy shots of actual units like we did when the refreshed Hilux was still being kept under wraps. What we do have now are the possible variants, specs, and prices.
A trusted source has sent us what seems to be the full spec sheet and price list for the facelifted MPV. First things first, let’s enumerate the variants and their corresponding prices.
Similar to what TMP did when the new Fortuner arrived last year, the carmaker appears to be cutting the gasoline variants from the Innova roster. That means only diesel Innovas will be available—more on this one later. The top-spec Touring Sport variant is also expected to be discontinued. The prices, meanwhile, get significant increases across the range. You can check out the table below for more details:
2021 Toyota Innova: Variants and Prices
|Variant||Current SRP||New SRP||Price increase|
|2.8 V Diesel AT*||P1,679,000||P1,739,000||P60,000|
|2.8 G Diesel AT*||P1,522,000||P1,592,000||P70,000|
|2.8 G Diesel MT*||P1,452,000||P1,522,000||P70,000|
|2.8 E Diesel AT||P1,320,000||P1,355,000||P35,000|
|2.8 E Diesel MT||P1,250,000||P1,285,000||P35,000|
|2.8 J Diesel MT||P1,146,000||P1,186,000||P40,000|
*White Pearl color options are available for the V and G variants for an additional P15,000.
Our guy has told us that TMP will be retaining the current Innova’s 2.8-liter turbodiesel that generates 171hp and 360Nm of torque when mated to a six-speed automatic, or 167hp and 343Nm when paired with a five-speed manual.
Another notable addition to the facelifted model is a new infotainment system. Save for the base J variant, the Innova will come fitted with an Apple CarPlay- and Android Auto-compatible touchscreen setup.
There appears to be no Toyota Safety Sense features in the spec sheet we got, but things like vehicle stability control and hill-start assist will supposedly come as standard. A reversing camera with parking sensors will also be available for both G and V variants.
Again, don’t quote us on this just yet. We’re still waiting for an official invite from TMP for the actual launch, so until the carmaker confirms anything, neither will we. What do you think of the tentative specs and prices, though? Tell us in the comments.
