2016 Toyota Innova spied in India
The next generation Toyota Innova will come to India in 2016.

Based on an all-new platform, the new Innova will continue to use a ladder-frame setup instead of a monocoque. Though the profile of the car is unmistakable for anything but an Innova, the styling is expected to be in tune with Toyota’s current design language. The test mule appears visibly longer than the current Innova, suggesting that there would be more room inside than the current model.

Powering the new Innova will be Toyota’s new family of diesel engines. The powertrains are expected to offer better efficiency than today’s engines, and the NVH package would be improved as well. An automatic gearbox for the diesel engine is also under consideration, Indian Autos Blog has come to know.

The Innova is Toyota Kirloskar Motor’s best selling car with average monthly sales accounting for 4,600 units (January-June 2014 period). The new model is expected to build on this success.

Competitors: Honda Mobilio, Nissan Evalia, Chevrolet Enjoy

Expected Price: INR 9 – 15 lakhs, ex-Showroom

    Hi Shrawan

    When is the expected launch in India? Current Innova is too boring and long in the tooth. When can we have Master Artist Shoaeb Kalina give us a projected image??? Looking forward!

    1. Hello Kapil, yes we are working on this. Indian launch should be in 2016.

    This is not Innova. This is the 2014 Toyota highlander which is very popular here in US market.

    1. Hello Mansur, no this is the Innova, the Highlander is an SUV and this is an MPV. The vehicle tires, and grille, window line are also giveaways that this isn’t an existing Toyota.

    1. Hello! There appears to be no such plan for Toyota.
