Following the successful introduction of the Toyota Hilux and Fortuner, the forthcoming all-new Innova is the final step in completing the renewal of Toyota’s trio of IMV (Innovative International Multi-Purpose Vehicle) platform models in Malaysia.
Recently launched in Thailand in October, the second generation Innova (if you ignore the earlier Indonesian market Kijang models from which the Innova traces its lineage back to) represents a major step forward in safety and refinement – attributes which were lacking in the previous generation model.
The all-new Innova is expected to make its local debut in early December, and UMW Toyota Motor have since announced an indicative pricing that ranges between RM109k and RM126k.
Meanwhile, here’s a quick look at the Thailand market Innova, which is on display now at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2016. It’s slightly different from the model that we are getting in Malaysia – with the ‘captain seats’ in the middle row and the 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine under the bonnet being the most obvious differences.
