The next generation Toyota Innova has been spied testing yet again, entirely camouflaged, on the Indian roads near company's production plant in Bidadi, Karnataka. It has been almost 4 months since Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has been testing the MPV in the country, with a tentative launch around early 2016. It is also being speculated that it will be globally unveiled at one of the upcoming Asian Motor Show next year.

Going by the spy-shots we have, the Toyota Innova facelift appears similar to a full-fledged SUV with headlamps being sourced directly from company's Corolla saloon. The next gen Innova would have an all-new ladder frame chassis with an striking front fascia, featuring a horizontal arrangement for the grille. However, the overall profile seems pretty identical to the ongoing model, albeit the larger size gives an indication that length and breadth have been increased. It would result in an ideal inner cabin as it would provide ample space to the rear seat occupants.

Mechanically, the company has decided to introduce an all new diesel engine in place of the current 2.5L powertrain as the company believes that it would bring a better combination of power, performance and fuel efficiency. In addition, it would be tuned in a prolific manner for lower NVH levels. Apart from the manual gearbox, the engine could also be offered with an automatic transmission. The Innova, in Indian market, competes with the likes of Honda Mobilio, Maruti Ertiga, Tata Aria, Chevrolet Enjoy and Nissan Evalia. It is expected to be launched in price domain of Rs. 9-15 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) in the first quarter of 2016. Apparently, the 2016 Indian Auto Expo might witness the launch of next generation Innova MPV in India.
