The launch of the facelifted Toyota Innova is just around the corner, with a speculative date being rumored as October 5th or October 9th. Either way, its a week away and more importantly we already know the prices and we have informed our readers that a new top-end ‘Z’ variant would be added.

The Toyota Innova facelift can be easily identified thanks to its new grille and front bumper.

In New Delhi, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) will be charging INR 15.06 lakhs (ex-Showroom) for the Z variant which is a good INR 53,000 more than the VX trim. The Z variant would appear even more expensive when the on-road price is taken into account, which stands at a premium INR 17.66 lakhs. So what are the extra features TKM is planning for the Z model?

The only noticeable change seems to be the color of the faux-wood used on the armrest.

MotorTrend claims that these images reveal the interiors of the Z variant. And it seems we have nothing but bad news. Features such as steering mounted audio controls, a comprehensive entertainment system, ABS and dual front airbags are already seen on the VX grade and as a result seeing them on the Z variant is mandatory. The only difference seems to be the color of the faux-wood used on the door trim. It seems to have changed from a lighter brown to a darker shade of the same color.

The interiors of the current Toyota Innova VX is added for reference.

The rear seats reveal a leatherette fabric and we’re not sure whether this comes as standard or as an optional dealer accessory. The exteriors reveal body graphics and a chrome side guard, which again could be dealer level accessories.

This leatherette seat fabric could be a dealer level accessory.

From these images, we have to conclude that the top-end Z variant is nothing but the VX variant with a more expensive price tag. We would have liked to see features such as a DVD player and maybe headrest mounted LCD screens to justify the additional price.
