Toyota has added extra features like automatic climate control, stereo-mounted audio controls and a multi-information display which help impart a luxury feel to the already comfortable MPV. The white-lit Optitron gauges which get illumination control look very attractive as well. Apart from these additions, the interiors remain largely unchanged. You get the same top-quality materials and excellent fit-and-finish that are typically up to Toyota’s high standards and a class apart from the others. You also immediately notice the width — it’s as wide as an E-class inside! To add to this legroom, seat height and the seats themselves are top-class, better than even the Safari. These limited edition variants also have ABS and driver airbag,which further adds to its safety quotient. The main highlight of this MPV is its roomy internal cabin, which can host seating between seven to eight passengers depending upon the seating arrangement.

There is ample leg shoulder and head space available inside along with a huge 300 liter boot storage capacity. This vehicle is integrated with several important comfort features like an air conditioning system, rear parking assist including camera with display on infotainment screen along with a multi functional steering wheel. In the year 2013, a facelifted version of Innova was launched with major cosmetic overhaul to its exteriors. Now the car maker has introduced limited edition variants in its series, which is equipped with several additional features. These variants are based on the ‘GX’ platform with a diesel engine as standard under its hood. It has exclusive features like dual tone fabric seat upholstery, touchscreen infotainment system, stylish body graphics and chrome lining for head and tail light clusters.Even the tallest drivers can get comfortable behind the wheel, and this seems to have little effect on rear seat comfort. The seats are supportive, well padded and bolstered, and the placement and design of cubby holes and bottle holders is great.

The Innova also has the most useable and comfortable rear seats in the class, and the split seat reclines individually. Here, you sit low and legroom is tight, but it’s comfortable, even on long drives. Top-end versions also get air-conditioning vents for all three rows. What sets the limited edition apart from the regular GX are an array of changes like limited edition emblem at the rear, chrome-line headlamps, new body graphics and rear combination lamps. The cabin gets a dual-tone fabric seats, color-coordinated door handles and a touch-screen display with DVD, CD. USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth functionality. The limited edition also gets two new color options – Silver Mica Metallic and Bronze Mica Metallic. Talking about the safety features, the Innova Limited Edition comes with driver side airbag and anti-lock braking system (ABS) along with other standard ones.

The face-lifted Innova with an all-new grille and a new bumper as well that sport Corolla and Camry styling elements. These changes are minor but they dramatically improve the looks of this MPV. Built on a ‘C-in-C’ ladder frame, the Innova clearly has van proportions which even the sloping roof, curved D-pillar and mildly flared wheel arches can’t disguise. This vehicle has a stylish appearance owing to its large radiator grille and a set of trendy alloy wheels. At the same time, its also has an expressively designed tailgate that is beautifully decorated with chrome inserts.

The car maker has also focused on its safety aspects for which, it has developed GOA body structure that absorbs the impact of a collision and improves protection to the passengers inside.The Innova has coil springs on all four wheels, independent wishbones up front and a non-independent four-link rear setup along with a low centre of gravity, all of which point to good ride and handling. Large bushes have also been used to damp additional vibrations. Build quality in the Innova is superb and a generation ahead of the others in its class.

Handling

The Innova’s brakes work well to bring the car to a halt while cruising through city streets as well as when zipping along on the highway. Out on the highway where most MPVs don’t fare too well, the Innova is superb. Body roll is well contained. What’s truly impressive is the Innova’s flat and consistent poise with none of the heaving and pitching which makes travelling in it all that more comfortable. The Innova’s low stance and low weight give it an advantage even before it turns a wheel. Toyota’s engineering expertise has ensured that it drives as well as many saloons. The steering is well-weighted and gives superb feedback. You don’t have to tiptoe through corners or slow down for them, like you would in other cars in this class. And the decent grip and handling aren’t at the expense of ride quality. Low speed ride is quite cushioned and is not very jarring.

Performance

Toyota Innova Picture of Engine

The  Innova is powered by the tried-and-tested D4-D 2.5-litre turbo-diesel generating 102bhp. Off the line, the Innova is very responsive with little turbo-lag and tugs you forward from as low as 1200rpm. In terms of refinement, the D-4D engine isn’t a quantum leap ahead of its rivals. There is that unmistakable clatter of diesel in the cabin, but it is well damped and muted. Its petrol variants are equipped with a BSIV compliant 2.0-litre engine that produces a maximum power of 130.1bhp along with a 181Nm of peak torque. While the diesel variants are available with both BSIV and BSIII compliant 2.5-litre engines, which are mated with five speed manual transmission gearbox.

The long-throw gearbox is light and direct and the gear ratios are perfectly matched to the engine’s power and torque characteristics to complement the Innova’s superb driveability. As a result, ambling in city traffic is a breeze, you rarely feel a lack of power or the need to downshift. The relatively short gear ratios are perfectly matched to the engine’s power and torque characteristics, and complement the superb driveability. What the Innova lacks, however, is the top-end punch of the Scorpio. It’s comfortable, but not a vehicle to really push in.
