New 2012 Innova revealed


As seen from the pictures, Toyota has given its brilliant people mover a major facelift, with new lights and a new grille and the profile has been altered a bit as well. The upright grille sits more vertically than the current car and this means the bonnet looks less van like. The new headlights have been stretched over the fenders, and the fogs and chin are new as well. It also gets new alloy wheels.  The styling updates at the rear include a new bumper, re-styled number-plate housing and re-profiled tail lamps.

As seen from the pictures, there are minor tweaks to the interiors, the manual A/C controls get bigger knobs and the centre console gets a wood-trim surround, and there is an all-new steering wheel which seems to be borrowed from the Corolla Altis.

While the pictures are from a petrol version which will be sold in the Indonesian market, we don’t expect any change to the current 2.5 common rail diesel motor on duty in our market. However, it could be updated and deliver more power and torque.

What remains to be seen however with this car is wether Toyota maintains the current price line. The Innova has easily seen off many recent threats from competitors and with no creditable rivals in sight,

Toyota may just take the opportunity to stretch the margin on this car when they launch it sometime in the middle of 2012.
