We posted an image of the Toyota Innova facelift clicked by our Bangalore reader Niketh last week. Ever since many readers wrote in to know if the front fascia will be similar to the Thai facelift.
The answer lies in the latest set of shots clicked by our friends over at TheAutomotiveIndia.com while the testers were taking the taped up mule for a spin in Bangalore. The Thai market model in its entirety is definitely slated for India.
Testing of the facelift need not mean that the launch is nearing as raging floods have literally shuttered some vendor parks in Thailand for a good few months, the sourcing base for Innova components.
It is common sense to believe Toyota will hide the replacement till stocks of the existing model run out as a hint from the company can see demand drop drastically for the current model that isn't all that different.
It remains to be seen if Toyota uses the Auto Expo next year as a launchpad for both IMV platform updates.
