The launch of the Toyota Innova facelift is just around the corner, with a rumoured date of tomorrow October 5th. The company hasn’t taken much time to bring the Innova facelift in India just last-month, Toyota introduced the Innova facelift in Indonesia. In India, Toyota has already dispatched the first batch of Innova facelift to the dealerships. Bookings are currently underway and some lucky customers have already had the chance to see the new car.

We have already posted the Innova facelift spotted couple of times in the dealership. Now an unidentified BharathAutos reader from Mangalore has sent us snaps of the upcoming Toyota Innova facelift spotted at a dealer yard, indicating that the launch is very near. Seen here is the ‘VX’ variant of the Innova, which is not the top-end variant anymore with the addition of new top-end model of the Innova called ‘Z’. The top-end ‘Z’ variant is nothing but the ‘VX’ variant with a more expensive price tag.

The ‘Z’ variant features steering mounted audio controls, a comprehensive entertainment system, ABS and dual front airbags that are already present on the ‘VX’ grade, however, to add value for additional 53,000 bucks faux-wood used on the door trim has changed from a lighter brown to a darker shade of the same color and leatherette fabric seats are added on the inside. While on the exterior, the ‘Z’ variant gets the body graphics and a chrome side guard. We also expect features such as a DVD player and headrest mounted LCD screens to make into the ‘Z’ variant.

Under the hood, the engine will remain the same, which means the Toyota Innova facelift will be powered by a 2.5-litre D4D diesel engine that puts out 102bhp and a 2.0-litre VVT petrol engine that puts out 130bhp. Both these engines are mated to 5-speed manual gearbox. The company is selling the current Toyota Innova at a discount of INR 40,000 to get rid of existing stocks prior to the launch of the facelift model.
