The second generation of the Toyota Innova has been present in the market since 2015 and it has recently revealed some serious updates for the year 2018. Although still fresh, it has been announced that this minivan is ready to hit the roads soon as a redesigned 2019 Toyota Innova model. This model has been hugely popular in the Indian market as well as in Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
The 2019 Toyota Innova will still appear as a large and functional MPV. It will represent an excellent choice whether you need to travel with your colleagues or your big family. When it comes to exterior, we have been informed that the new Innova will mostly resemble the outgoing model and that no major changes should be expected in terms of styling. We have already mentioned that this model has made some serious updates and refreshments recently so it will leave most of them unchanged. It will still ride on the same new platform that the second generation has got. The front fascia will wear its large distinctive grille with lots of chrome details that make the front end stylish and elegant. You will also find its massive bumper and its set of LED headlamps. The new Innova will also show its large fenders and 16-inch alloy wheels as standard, although this will depend on the trim level you choose.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Innova will reveal a spacious and modern cabin with three rows of seats that will perfectly accommodate up to eight passengers. The seats will be comfortable and covered in premium leather. Besides leather, Toyota will also use wood for some details that will give the overall impression of elegance and luxury. Its LED ambient lighting will only add up to overall pleasure during the ride. The Japanese carmaker will also upgrade its high-tech section. Features such as navigation, CD player, an audio system, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity will be provided thanks to a larger touch-screen center console with the infotainment system. When it comes to safety systems and driver assist features, the new Innova will include seven airbags, anti-lock braking system, hill-start assist, stability control and others.
You shouldn’t expect any major changes under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Innova. Instead, it will still be available with petrol and diesel choices. When it comes to petrol, this model will come with a 2.7-liter inline-four that delivers the output of 160 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. It will be paired with either a five-speed or a six-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, the diesel version should be offered with a 2.4-liter inline-four mated to a five-speed manual and a 2.8-liter inline-four turbo mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The new Innova will get the rear-wheel drive system as standard.
