Spied – Toyota Innova Facelift ‘V’ variant caught in Mangalore
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
According to certain reports, the Toyota Innova facelift could be launched in India tomorrow. Indian Autos Blog has been covering the refreshed Innova extensively ever since the first vehicle was spotted in Indonesia to the price leak in India. Here are another set of spy images from a dealer yard in Mangalore, courtesy of BharathAutos.
The Innova here is the ‘V’ variant which will now lose its crown as the top-end model. Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) will be launching a Z variant that would be priced about INR 53,000 more than this model.
At the front we notice that the V variant will continue to be offered with foglights, while the bumper and the grille have been redesigned. The rear sees the addition of a chrome embellishment along with a couple of extra reflectors. This paragraph alone summarizes what the Toyota Innova facelift is all about.
Currently, TKM offers safety features such as dual front airbags, ABS and EBD on the V variant and this is expected to continue, especially since there will be a price increase of about INR 11,000 on this particular variant. Naturally, we expect other features such as steering mounted audio controls, auto climate control, and a music system to be in place.
Indian Autos Blog has also learnt that most dealers across India have received initial stocks of the refreshed Innova. This certainly indicates that the company should be making an announcement about it soon.
