2016 Toyota Innova to get ‘Sport’ and ‘Eco’ driving modes – Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

World premiere reported on November 23 in Indonesia.

According to a report from Kompas Otomotif, Toyota will offer a Sport and Eco mode for the 2016 Toyota Innova automatic variant in Indonesia, which is already available in its SUV and pick-up derivative – the 2016 Toyota Fortuner and 2015 Toyota Hilux.

Based on spyshots, the 2016 Innova appears to be larger than the outgoing model.

Various renders and spyshots have revealed that the second gen Innova will feature a revolutionary styling on an exterior that appears to be slightly larger than the current model. It could potentially be launched with safety features such as ABS/EBD as standard and 7 airbags, including one for the driver’s knee.

The ‘Eco’ and ‘Power’ mode is provided on the new Fortuner.

Power is likely to be sourced from the new 2.4-liter GD diesel engine, which produces 150 hp and 400 Nm of torque in the 2015 Toyota Hilux. Apart from a standard 6-speed manual, Toyota will also offer a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
