Previa and Sienna are the most common minivans of Toyota, than can be easily recognized by the signature of Toyota designers. And talking about Innova we can only guess that this car has something related to the Japanese automaker because of the brand name label. Turnes out, the car is not sold in Japan, and it is not even produced there. Toyota Innova is made in India, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, as it was created or the markets of these countries.
Toyota Innova has appeared in January 2005. Minivan with transformable saloon (7 or 8 passengers depending on the version) has been designed as part of IMV (International Multipurpose Vehicle) with the elements of the platform Fortuner SUV and pickup truck Hilux.
Innova has a streamlined shape with sharpened corners at the rear. Stretched headlights give it an inexplicable charm. Powerful bumper covers front of the car almost touching the ground. Perhaps because of this fact driver can face some problems, but only in the case of careless actions.
In the spacious and comfortable lounge you will find all the necessary equipment. Driver's seat is comfortable with adjustable steering column and seat by itself (manually). Instrument panel has a standard set of scales which are simple and clear. Climate control unit and radio are located on the center console. Driver should not get used to the dimensions, visibility is good - except wide pillars (even with triangular "loopholes") that can interfere visibility. Steering wheel is light and informative. Maneuverability is excellent; it seems that the wheels are turning almost ninety degrees. Landing is tall and vertical, although legroom for passengers could have been bigger. The average sofa can be easily folded (in a ratio of ½). But as for minivan the car has not enough options of transformation of the interior. Between the front seats we can find a high transmission tunnel with automatic transmission lever, cup holders and box armrest.
The base engine for the Innova is the 1TR-FE engine volume of 2, 0 l. R4 16V (136 hp, 162 Nm), but the 2KD-FTV diesel engine with volume of 2.5 liters is also R4 16V (102 hp, 200 Nm). The front suspension is independent, on double wishbone; rear is dependent 4-lever. The equipment includes ABS, four PB, central locking, electric mirrors, power, air conditioning, alloy wheels.
