As a product, the Innova’s superiority is beyond reproach and proof of how thoroughly engineered Toyotas can be
The face-lifted Innova with an all-new grille and a new bumper as well that sport Corolla and Camry styling elements. These changes are minor but they dramatically improve the looks of this MPV. Built on a ‘C-in-C’ ladder frame, the Innova clearly has van proportions which even the sloping roof, curved D-pillar and mildly flared wheel arches can’t disguise. The Innova has coil springs on all four wheels, independent wishbones up front and a non-independent four-link rear setup along with a low centre of gravity, all of which point to good ride and handling. Large bushes have also been used to damp additional vibrations. Build quality in the Innova is superb and a generation ahead of the others in its class.
