Since it’s a soft launch without any ceremony, the Innova facelift will be available at all Toyota dealerships across India with immediate effect from today itself.
Owing to the brand’s luxury & premium positioning, the all-new Innova is a defining pinnacle of luxury and elegance. The Innova facelift is likely to be made will be available in a total of 14 variants (11 diesel and 3 petrol), with prices beginning from Rs. 9.77 lakh for the base trim to an all-time high of Rs. 15.06 lakh for the top-end Z-variant (both prices are of ex-showroom Delhi). Surprisingly, the Innova’s base model ‘E’ variant comes without an AC option although priced at Rs. 9.77 lakh, can’t imagine 🙂 .
The new added luxury features are as follows:

- Innova has two engine options, one each of petrol and diesel. Both engines are a carryover from Innova’s outgoing-model.
