The recently spied 2023 Toyota Innova looks similar to the current Crysta
The new generation Toyota Innova has been spied in Thailand while the Japanese carmaker was testing the vehicle on public roads.
Expected to make its global debut later this year, the 2023 Innova is likely to be based on the current model’s IMV architecture. Although, some say that the car will be underpinned by the TNGA-B platform.
If true, this would mean that the premium MPV will ditch rear-wheel drive in favour of front-wheel drive, much like most modern cars today. But, the veracity of this information needs to be verified.
When viewed side by side, the recently spied 2023 Toyota Innova and the current Innova Crysta look very similar. The window area, rear windscreen and tailgate, all look profoundly alike and the car had split LED tail lamps.
That said, the upcoming model of the MPV was seen riding Lexus-style dark chrome alloy wheels. Other design details are not discernible due to the heavy camouflaging work that has been done on the car.
When it gets introduced during the second half of this year, the new Innova will come with electrified powertrains, much like the next-generation Fortuner, to be able to meet more stringent emissions regulations in the future.
