The facelift Toyota Innova was just launched with prices starting from RM111,622 for the base 2.0E variant. As for the 2.0G, it’s priced at RM121,483 while the range-topping 2.0X is priced at RM129,677.

All three variants are powered by a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine with 139 hp and 183 Nm. It’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission to drive the rear wheels.

Changes on the exterior include a redesigned front grille which is now in full black without the chrome from before, along with a separate positions for the signal and fog light. Previously the signal and fog light were clustered together.

No changes were made to the 17-inch wheels, but additional body cladding has been added at the bottom of the doors for a more rugged look. At the rear, the lower rear bumper is now black with a chrome strip added between the tailights.

Climb on board the facelift Innova and you’d immediately be greeted by two captain seats with arm rests, and cupholders placed in between. Up ahead is a collapsible table, along with air con vents and fan speed controls. That horse shoe illumination never gets old; adding a touch of luxury to the Innova.

There are a couple of USB ports on the centre console, along with one in the 3rd row. However, the second row only comes with a 12V socket.

In the driver seat, several things should catch your attention and these include the Optitron instrument cluster with a 4.2-inch multi information display. As for entertainment, owners can rely on the massive 9-inch touchscreen display with 6 speakers, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Safety wise, the facelift Innova 2.0X comes with seven airbags, and more notably a blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert. It’s also equipped with Toyota’s Vehicle Telematics System that’s able to track the vehicle’s movement and location.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
