The new Toyota Innova will launch in India sometime in 2016.

The second generation Innova will come with a redesigned exterior and interior, while riding on a new platform. The people-mover would not shift to a monocoque platform, instead the car will make use of a ladder-frame setup which has proven to be rugged and durable.

As these spy images show, the overall look of the car will not change much, but details like headlights, taillights, grille, certain body panels and the design of the rear quarter glass will be of a brand new design. Inside, the new Innova is expected to be roomier than the current model, and features seen on today’s model like dual airbags, climate control, reverse camera, multifunction steering wheel would be carried over.

New engines, exterior and interior design, more features and a diesel AT variant summarizes the 2016 Innova.

The powertrain options will be upgraded as well, with the 2016 Innova getting power from Toyota’s new diesel engines that are currently under development. Toyota will explore the possibility of having a diesel variant with an automatic transmission, Indian Autos Blog has come to know.

The Innova has been, and still is, a hugely successful model for Toyota in India. The newer model certainly has its work cut out, thanks to the strong nameplate value.

Competitors: Honda Mobilio, Chevrolet Enjoy, Nissan Evalia

    Being as politician its humbal request to Toyota company that please install big size sunroof new launching Innova.For our convinient in election moment

    Its high time Toyota does revamp Innova and provide more features. Even engine wise it needs to have more power and a 6th gear as addition. The present engine’s power seems disproportionate to its capacity.

    Mobilio is an MUV in the class of Ertiga, Enjoy, Evalia. It cant never be compared with Innova segment.
    If you do so it’ll be like comparing Alto and Swift just cause both are Hatchbacks.

    1. Ramish says:

      What made you believe that Mobilio will cost 13L and not 7L?

      As per my little understanding, mobilio will compete with Evalis and NOT with Innova.
