The next-generation Innova made its debut in 2015, arriving as a thoroughly redesigned model. Compared to the first-generation model that came in 2004, the redesigned version features a new platform, new sheet metal and a refreshed engine range. In that regard expect the 2017 Toyota Innova to bring only several subtle changes. Just like its predecessor, the new model is produced in Indonesia and exported to Asian and Middle Eastern markets.
According to unnamed sources, the 2017 Toyota Innova is most likely to hit the market in the second half of 2016.
2017 Toyota Innova Design and Features
The second-generation Innova rides on Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform that gives it a lighter, stiffer and safer body. Compared to the previous generation, the new Innova MPV has grown in size significantly although it retained the identical wheelbase. As a result, it offers more passenger space and an increased cargo capacity. As for the sheet metal, it boasts a much more premium look with a bevy of upscale-looking styling cues. Its new chromed grille is larger than before and now flanked by projector headlights with LED daytime running lights. Similar to the headlamps, the taillights feature a wraparound design that gives the Innova a more modern appearance. The rear end sports a massive tailgate that hides an impressive cargo space even when the third row of seats is in place.
