The Innova is a compact multi-purpose vehicle or MPV manufactured by Toyota Motors in Indonesia. It was first put out in the market in 2004 in Indonesia with the name Toyora Kijang Innova; the name ‘Innova’ was adapted by other countries. It is sold in various countries in Asia such as India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Brunei, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE and of course, the Philippines. It is also available in South Africa and Australia.
It was first released in the Philippines in 2005 as a replacement for the Toyota Revo, with the goal of making it visible to the international market. Local variants include the J, E, G, and V. In the recent years, the Toyota Innova is being used as metered taxicabs in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and as patrol cars for the Philippine National Police. Moreover, it has become a family favorite because it’s the ideal vehicle for long drives and out-of-town trips.
The Toyota Innova has undergone a number of facelifts over the years. It went through its first major overhaul in 2009 in Indonesia, when the front and rear bumpers, front grilles and rear tail lamps were redesigned. Parking sensors and an in-dash CD changer were also added. This model was first made available in Far East Asia and the Middle East.
In 2012, the first facelift for the Philippine version of the Innova took place. This design boasted a redesigned bumper, headlights and taillights. In 2014, the Innova went through another makeover—this time, a front bumper and tailgate was added. A new color was also introduced for the E, G, and V variants—dark metallic brown. GPS navigation was added to the V model’s features.
If you’re looking for a car that offers comfort and stability in one package, then the Toyota Innova is for you! Its redesigned rear tailgate spices things up even more, and the one that makes this car the ultimate deal is its improved interior and exterior features. It’s a 5-seater car with enough leg room that manages to keep passengers comfortable even while driving on bumpy roads. The front grille is what also makes the Innova truly stand out—it makes a bold statement and adds to the car’s unique style.
The Toyota Innova is an MPV like no other. It is very versatile and is built for everyday driving and out-of-town adventures. You can be sure of the quality of its engine, as well as its performance on the road. It has passed the world-renowned standards that are set by Toyota in terms of safety and engine efficiency, plus it is also economical. Its 2.5-liter D-4D common rail turbo diesel engine pulls remarkably well. And hey, who wouldn’t want a vehicle with a good fuel efficiency system? The Toyota Innova works like a well-oiled machine—you don’t have to worry about glitches while you’re out on the road!
Both models have enough power to sustain drivers for those bad traffic situations and enough power to get them to their destination fast. And the ride itself would be so smooth that they won't even feel the rough, unpaved road or potholes along the way.
