The custom job adds a Lexus-like front end to the Toyota Innova complete with the signature Spindle grille framed with a dull metal trim.

The front gets Lexus' signature Spindle grille accompanied by inverted L-shape fog lamp housings similar to the Lexus LX. The base of the bumper gets a black finish splitter as well. The Toyota insignia has been retained, and the headlamps have been carried over unchanged. The sides feature up-sized rims with lower profile tires and side skirts. At the back, the souped-up Toyota Innova features dual tone bumper extensions with a faux diffuser and a quad-pipe arrangement. Other notable features are the gloss black roof finish and chrome ORVMs and door handles.
