The 2016 Toyota Innova comes loaded with features with an all-new premium looking cabin, revised front fascia and a more powerful diesel engine under the hood.
The 2016 Toyota Innova will be breaking cover in the following days in Indonesia and before the official unveil, a brochure has been leaked revealing all that you need to know about the upcoming MPV. Testing since quite some time now in India and overseas, the new Innova gets an evolutionary design language and definitely looks a lot more premium now with the newly styled front fascia with an abundance of chrome. The single frame trapezoidal grille is wider with two stubby slats and is flanked by sweptback LED projector headlights.
The side profile is sharper now with the newly shaped D-pillar while the 16-inch alloy wheels look good. Inside the cabin, the brochure gives a glimpse of the premium new appearance with a four-spoke multi-function steering wheel, new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual pod instrument cluster with an MID unit in the centre, ambient lighting, auto climate control, all black interiors (top versions get wood inserts), smart key entry, smartphone connectivity and a whole lot more.
The 2016 Toyota Innova measures 4735 mm in length, 1830 mm in width, 1795 mm in height with a 2750 mm wheelbase. In terms of power, the Indonesia spec model gets the new 2.0-litre 16-valve Dual VVT-i petrol engine tuned for 139 PS at 5600 RPM and 183 Nm of torque at 4700 RPM. India though will get the new 2.4-litre GD diesel engine (replacing the 2.5-litre oil burner) tuned to churn out 149 PS at 3400 RPM and 360 Nm on the automatic and 342 Nm on the manual variants. Both engines will come paired to a 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission units.
The suspension setup on the 2016 Toyota Innova includes a coil spring with stabiliser at the front and 4-link with coil spring and lateral road suspension at the rear.
