Pictures of the all-new Toyota Innova for Indonesia surfaced on the internet a while ago, followed by the company officially teasing the next-gen MPV ahead of its November 23, 2015 global unveil. The leaked brochure scans revealed complete details of the new Innova’s styling, which is a vast difference from the current model's, both on the interior and exterior.
The brochure also revealed details of the next-gen Innova’s dimensions and engine details. The 2016 Innova is 4,735mm long, 1,830mm wide and 1,795mm high, this means it is 180mm longer, 60mm wider and 45mm taller than the current model. The wheelbase, however, is the same at 2,750mm.
As revealed earlier, the new Innova ditches the current 102bhp 2.5-litre diesel KD series engine in favour of the all-new 2.4-litre GD series diesel engine. This new motor churns out 147bhp – a 45bhp increase from the outgoing model. Two gearboxes will be on offer on the new Innova – a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. The 2.4-litre diesel’s torque figure for the six-speed automatic Innova is 36.7kgm, while the manual gearbox-equipped variant delivers 34.9kgm.
The Indonesian-spec brochure of the new Innova shows the long list of equipment and safety features. These include the following:
- Dual-tone interior with faux brush aluminium trim (faux woodgrain on the higher variants).
- Leather upholstery. A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system across all variants with navigation, voice command and Bluetooth telephony system. SD card support is offered on higher trims.
- Separate multi-info display for the driver.
- Ambient LED mood lighting.
- Unique entertainment system with an 8.0-inch screen, HDMI input and in-car Wi-Fi support.
- Auto up-down windows along with push-button start on higher trims.
- LED daytime running lamps and LED head and tail-lamps with emergency braking markers.
- Multi-zone Climate control
- Cooled glovebox
- Stability control
- Hill-start assist
- Dual front, side and knee airbags
The all-new Innova will surely benefit from its predecessor's reliability and popularity. With an all-new diesel engine and the diesel-automatic combo, and not to forget the long feature list, it has all the makings of another segment leader. But in the end, it all boils down to the pricing. It will be safe to assume a significantly higher pricing for the new Innova when it reaches Indian showrooms next year.
