Toyota introduced the Innova in 2005 in India and got a facelift in 2008. So as our intent say, most of the affected models in this recall are from its first generation. The recent update that Innova got was last year, however, was nothing more than a disappointment as it didn't get any major upgrade except the revised front and rear-end.

In addition, the driver's airbag may get deactivated. Toyota is currently working on obtaining the necessary replacement parts.
