2016 Toyota Innova leaked, shows all-new styling – Report
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Indian launch could take place at next year’s Auto Expo.
FlyWheel, which published this image, claims this to be the next generation 2016 Toyota Innova. The publication states that it has received this image from its source in Thailand.
The purported image is consistent with spyshots of the new Innova. The interesting shape of the rear windows, the overall profile of the current generation model, and a front end subscribing to Toyota’s new design language (seen on the leaked image of the new Hilux) lend us to believe that this is indeed the second generation Innova.
Based on a new ladder-frame chassis, the new Innova will be revealed internationally this year, while a launch in India is expected early next year. Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) could show the new Innova for the first time at the 2016 Auto Expo in February, certain reports claim.
Power is likely to come from a new diesel engine, matched to manual and automatic transmission. Features that are seen on the current generation model like dual front airbags, ABS, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, a touchscreen infotainment system with steering mounted controls and optional second row Captains chairs will no doubt continue to be offered on the next generation model as well.
Competitors: Tata Aria, Honda Mobilio, Nissan Evalia, Chevrolet Enjoy, Maruti Ertiga
Expected Price: INR 9-15 lakhs, ex-Showroom
Launch Date: Early-2016 in India
