Do you like the Toyota Innova facelift?

Posted on: Jul 24, 2011 - 11:53pm IST

The Indonesian Motor Show is turning out to be very important from the Indian perspective. You must have seen the spy shots of the new Toyota Innova that we brought you earlier this year. Now, Toyota Indonesia has finally unveiled the new Innova and there are a few important upgrades to talk about.

Toyota Innova Facelift front

The exterior is not massively changed but some major tweaks to the headlamps and the front grill gives it a very fresh look. From head on, it reminds you of the old corolla Altis with broader headlamps. The tail lamps have been tweaked as well with the new Innova having three sections instead of the current two.

On the inside, part of the dashboard has been redesigned to fit in a new infotainment system. There is a splash of plastic wood that surrounds the infotainment system. The knobs to set the AC blow, temperature and speed are gone and are now replaced by sleek buttons. The steering wheel is lifted from the Corolla Altis.

In Indonesia, it is launched with a 2.0 liter petrol engine with both Automatic and Manual variants. Overall, it is a very typical Toyota facelift – just a little tweaks here and there.

Back is India, the Toyota Innova is doing decent numbers and the major focus of Toyota India will be on Etios and Liva. So we don’t expect the new Innova to be launched anytime soon. Toyota Kirloskar Motor is discussing with Toyota Motor Corporation on the launch time frame of the new Innova.

Nonetheless, we want to know how do you like the MUV? Thumbs up or Thumbs down?

  1. No… not at all.its just some modification on the front and rear.

    Innova has a really boring look since day 1. It has sweet time (so far) since it has no competitors.

    I think with the competion coming soon from Maruti’s 7 seater and GM Wuling 7 seater, Toyota will have to get off its high horse of less for more money (no auto/poor paint job – just do the basic coats required for the Innova to look fresh for a year)

  4. Arun says:

    This does look good, but the Innova became this huge success not just because of its looks but rather the overall package, the ride, handling, power, reliability, brand name and most of all, the comfort, a facelift would give a boost to sales, but since they did not tinker with aspects other than the looks, it seems to be all good….

    Look nice.
    But I actually prefer the old look.
    This one has some sharp lines, that take away the smooth flowing design of the earlier model

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
