New Innova to be slightly larger than outgoing model. 

This week Indian Autos Blog reader Mr. Ananda Siddhartha spotted the next generation 2016 Toyota Innova on test in Bangalore, Karnataka. Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has its manufacturing facility in Bidadi, Karnataka, where the new Innova will also be made.

The new Innova is based on a new ladder-frame setup and features a steeply raked rear quarter glass.

Based on a new ladder-frame chassis, the new Innova is touted to be slightly larger than the current generation model and will come with better interior space. However, the overall proportions of the MPV will largely remain the same as the current generation model. In the picture above for example, the rear door looks similar to the current Innova.

Powering the people carrier will be Toyota’s new diesel engine which according to our sources will be paired to manual and automatic transmissions.
