Launched in 2005, the Toyota Innova immediately became a really popular vehicle among customers around the world thanks to its attributes like powerful engine options, bold and yet attractive exterior design, and more than luxurious cabin. Now, Toyota is working on the next generation of Innova that is scheduled to be released in the second half of the 2015. The vehicle has undergone many changes but for the 2016 model year, the company prepares something even greater. At the very first sight, it will be easy to conclude that it has a new design, rather being evolution than revolution though, but yet significantly improved. Since it has been significantly changed exterior wise, can you imagine what kind of changes took place under the bonnet or inside of the cabin? Let’s take a look at the 2016 Toyota Innova.
2016 Toyota Innova Exterior
The new Innova boasts many new, exterior upgrades that improve its overall look. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Innova has more aggressive front fascia because of several treatments including a newly designed grille, new headlights and fog lights. The new grille hits strongly at the one of the current model, but it looks better and fits perfectly with other vehicle’s lines and curves.
As always, a large Toyota logo is placed on the top of the grille which now looks more masculine. Thanks to the features like a massive grille, large windshield and pretty high seating, the vehicle has more SUV-like stance. You have probably noticed that the new Innova looks much alike the Corolla and you are not wrong. The two are based on the same TNGA platform.
