About Toyota Innova

The Toyota Innova in its latest avatar gets cosmetic enhancements to keep up with the times. The Innova has gone on to be a success like no other Toyota product with the primary reason being its versatile nature and its immense practicality. The exterior monoform design might not appeal to everyone at first, however it does free up a lot of interior space. Once inside, you feel as though you have come to a different world. The quality of fit and finish cannot be questioned. Ride comfort is good and performance is adequate.

Toyota Innova Overview


Toyota’s longest selling model till date, the Innova was introduced in 2005 and has pulled on for a full decade. It will be replaced by end of this year or early next year however. Despite such a long run, the Innova continues to sell in high numbers due to its durability, comfort and Toyota’s service quality. The Innova competes against the likes of the Renault Lodgy, Honda Mobilio and Nissan Evalia in the MPV segment but is positioned price-wise a segment above. Prices of the Toyota Innova range from Rs.12.29 to 15.81 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi)

The Innova is one of the largest MPVs in the market and the only one on a ladder frame chassis. The Innova has received a few major facelifts on the inside and outside to look like the MPV it does today. Toyota’s attempt to keep with the times seems to have worked as despite the very Chinese grille and dated looks, the Innova sells very well. The Innova now sports a sharper front end and a slightly reworked rear, which is its last update till the new Innova is introduced.

On the inside, the Innova is spacious and comfortable. Even the third row of seats that is generally not usable over long journeys in most MPVs is also a comfortable place in the Innova. Toyota offers the Innova with two seating options- eight seater with the middle row bench or a more luxurious seven seater with captain seats in the middle row.

The Innova used to have a petrol and a diesel motor earlier but considering the specifications required for an MPV, there was no demand for the petrol. The diesel Innova is powered by a 2.5-litre engine developing just 102PS of power and 200Nm of torque. Performance levels on the Innova are a bit wanting considering its 1.7-tonne kerb weight. The weight also affects its mileage, which at 11.2kmpl is considerably lower than its competition.

The base Innova is bare bones basic but move up the variants and the top end Innova will offer you leather seats, automatic climate control, touch screen entertainment system and a reverse parking camera. On the safety front, Driver and passenger airbags are standard on all variants while ABS is offered on all variants except the bottom two.

The Innova is an excellent MPV for long distance journeys as the levels of comfort and space are unparalleled. But it is a bit long in the tooth now and the performance and mileage do not justify the premium you pay for it.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Innova

Q. What is the difference between old Innova and Innova Crysta?
  • Dimensions: The Innova Crysta is based on an all-new platform – the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which according to the carmaker – is lighter and stiffer than the existing model’s platform. Also, it is longer, wider and taller measuring 4735mm in length, 1830mm in width and 1795mm in height. However, the wheelbase remains identical at 2750mm. Design: Toyota has managed well to differentiate the Crysta MPV and the outgoing Innova. It gets a new front fascia, featuring a large dual-slat chrome grille, reworked bumper, projectors, and LED daytime running lights. At a singular glance, the side profile might look familiar, but a closer look reveals some important tweaks such as a sharp cut on the last row windows and larger alloy wheels that provides the side profile a mature appeal. The rear has received a touch-up with revised bumper, modern tail lights and a new tailgate design. Interiors: The dash layout is aesthetically appealing and the dual-tone interiors with wood accents come as an icing on the cake. Leather upholstery, Smart Entry and touchscreen infotainment unit with voice command support, and Bluetooth, USB as well as AUX connectivity also makes its way to the Crysta’s cabin (in the upper variants of course). Mechanicals: The Innova Crysta comes with a choice of three engines, a 2.7-litre petrol and a 2.4-litre and a 2.8-litre diesel engines. The petrol engine makes 166PS of max power and 245Nm of peak torque while the 2.4-litre diesel makes 150PS and 343Nm and lastly the largest engine, the 2.8-litre diesel makes 174PS of max power and 360Nm of peak torque.

  • Toyota Innova Crysta is not exactly a replacement for the ever popular Innova. Think of it as the new and much more premium Innova that sits well above the old MPV. The Innova Crysta is truly in a segment of its own and has one of the widest price ranges in the entire Indian automobile industry. Toyota takes the MPV game to the next level with the brand new Innova Crysta. In terms of design, Innova Crysta is longer, wider and taller than before. The Innova has more road presence now and makes a stronger statement. One of the biggest improvement has to be the 1-touch-tumble second row which is just so easy to use. The Crysta is larger than the Innova, but the wheelbase hasn’t changed. So, the cabin space is pretty much the same as before. Inspired by aeroplane seats, Toyota has used new-age foam which is sleeker, offers good support and carves out more room in the cabin. Which can be seen in the third row.For more information, please click on the following link: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/new-toyota-innova-crysta-india-review/25365/

Q. What is the mileage of XUV 300? Is it comfortable for long drive as compared to Innova?
  • As the car is just launched in the market on 14th February 2019, so the mileage is not yet shared by the brand. Moreover talking about the ride comfortability, It manages to walk the tightrope between being acceptably comfortable for the city, steady for the highway and fun when you’re in the mood to hoon. We’re certain you’ll look back one last time once you’ve parked it in for the day. Mahindra’s XUV300 gets a whole lot right. You get a bucketful of features, the quality of materials is positively refreshing and to top it off, it's comfortable to drive daily and hoon on weekends. As its, a compact SUV and Innova on other hand is a Utility vehicle so there is no direct comparison in both the cars as the offerings and the engine capacity in both the cars is also different.Although to churn more details on its ride quality may check the following link: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/mahindra-xuv300-review-first-drive/32937/
  • Super....if u drive at 80-90 km/hr u wl get 20-21 kmpl
Q. Is Hexa seats are more comfortable than Innova
  • Between these two cars, Hexa offers much more comfortable as compare to Innova Crysta. Tata claims for the Hexa is its ability to seat 6-7 people with ease in the car. The fact that it is 4788mm long, 1903mm wide and 1791mm high, makes the claim even more realistic. Features like dual-zone A/c for second and third-row passengers with separate vents just show how much attention Tata has paid towards occupants inside the car. In essence, the Hexa is comfortable for long rides for families that have more than four members. Do take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.

Q. Is Toyota Innova good for daily 300 KMS running with family of 7 occupied?
  • It is absolutely good to do 300plus kms everyday. However it will only be good if you have to face relatively less traffic and drives are long enough. Daily city driving with tight roads & congestion with frequent short hauls may drop your mileges very low.
  • It is a comfortable car but for 6 feet or above people find it a bit cramped in driver seat as the adjustments for driver seat are not as good as it used to be in the older innova ,if you don't mind about the plastics in the car and your priority is comfort ,I personally think Xuv500 seems to have a bit more room and the engine is also a bit smoother
  • It is the most comfortable car. 300 is too less in judging Innova capabilities.
