Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Includes a few bolts and screws.

In an interview, the Director of Production Engineering at TMMIN (Toyota Motor Manufaturing Indonesia), Nandi Julianto, has divulged that the new 2016 Toyota Innova shares only 5 percent of its components with the outgoing model, which is, apparently, a few bolts and screws.

The new Innova shares only 5 percent of its components with the outgoing model, which is, apparently, a few bolts and screws.

The new Innova is based on a revised ladder frame chassis that has improved structural rigidity and strength, thus improving its impact protection levels. Other than sharing a small percentage of components, the new Innova shares nothing with the model, in terms of styling and features.

Speaking of which, the 2016 Innova gets features such as LED Projector headlamps, 17 inch alloy rims, chrome inserts for the dual-slate grille, foglamps, new L-shaped taillamps and a shark fin antenna. It measures 4,735 mm in length, 1,830 mm in width, 1,795 mm in height and 2,750 mm in wheelbase.

The 2016 Innova is offered with a choice between an all-new 2.4-liter GD diesel engine or a 2.0-liter VVT-i petrol engine. Transmission options for both engines include a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Powertrain characteristics can be adjusted via “PWR” or “ECO” modes, depending on the user.
