Facelifted Toyota Innova by December 2011

Toyota is all set to launch a refreshed Innova in India and as per our sources the launch looks very close, even before the auto expo.

The Innova facelift was unveiled at the Indonesian Motor Show this year and has already hit the roads in most countries.

The front fascia gets a slight makeover with new headlamps and a tweaked bumper. At the back you get fresh tail lamps with added reflectors on the rear bumper. The interiors have been updated too, with an added infotainment system and a new steering wheel.

Overall, the facelift is more of a nose job and is essentially a lame excuse to hike the prices. The facelift was supposed to be launched around Diwali in India, but it seems Toyota is trying to clear out the stocks of the current model before the launch.

We doubt there are any mechanical upgrades on the car, as it will continue using the 2.5 D-4D turbo intercooled unit. However, there are rumours of an automatic variant finding its way through the market too.

We only hope the prices are not increased by big margins with the launch of the facelifted Innova.
