This SUV'fication of innova clearly says that toyota will be moving it to an upper segment, and a smaller muv will come below the current model.

I just bought a new Innova, two days ago. To replace my 5 yrs old innova.

Looking forward to this one as well. Just hope we get a more powerful engine / 6 gears & better NVH, as beyond 110 kmph, its boomy & one really needs to push the noisy engine to get it moving.

And I sincerely hope Toyota Reads this: Please improve on the interiors. Even the Fabric design pattern is same on the new Innova , as was on my 5 yrs old one.

I hope the change is also made under the hood. 2.5 liter engine doesn't make any sense. They should bring in latest modern engines like Honda and Ford are getting.

Was planning to buy either Innova or XUV. Thinking of postponing it as the new Innova may be in showrooms before 2015 ?. Is there any chance that the current one will be continued.

Massive scoop that one! Thanks for sharing.

Hope this doesn't run under those wrapping for long. The wheels are looking quite puny. Is it 15" or 16"? Maybe because the camouflage is adding a lot of bulk to the side profile.

Is that Ertiga there by coincidence?

As an existing owner, I hope Toyota fits the new Innova:
1) with a more powerful but also a more efficient engine
2) equips it with rear disc brakes
3) curtain airbags
4) roof rails - (atleast an option)

I am quite sure with the new model, Toyota managers are waiting with bated breath to breach the 20 lac mark. Request - please hear the side of reason.

Eagerly waiting for the launch! Our current Innova is getting old and looking for replacement. Nothing else in market meets our need other than Innova.

I would like to see below in all new Innova:
1.More Frugal,refined Engine,gearbox.
2.More GC.
3.A version which has ABS,Dual airbags,AC,PS,Power Window,Remote locking,Dual AC,Rear Wiper.
4.Oh Yes all these with no increase in current price. Innova is already expensive definitely not worth if the all new Innova would cost more than current one.

BTW will wait and watch how would Mobilio perform. Looks good on paper!

Awesome scoop! I'll guess the safety kit right away - two airbags and ABS!

Excellent Scoop! Team-BHP Exclusive, Great Job tharian.

It's pointless to have a wish-list that superceeds the Fortuner. Things like:

- Auto-folding mirrors
- Electric Seats
- More powerful engine + a 6-speeder
- Rear-disc brakes
- Addditional safety equipment [Toyota's brilliant policy of India doesn't need more than 2 airbags (Camry) and VSC is something that us commoners don't understand so theres no reason to fit it. (New Altis/Fortuner 2WD variants)]

Although these upgrades will make the Innova the most well rounded and perfect MPV to have ever graced the Indian market (if it isn't already considered to be one) but this could seriously hamper the numbers the fortuner generates. It would be like Toyota deciding to shoot itself in one leg. Quite a lot of practical people have given the fortuner a miss owing to its value proposition as against the Innova (and also the fact that the latter has a muchh better ride.) Add to that additional equipment as above which is available for almost 10L cheaper? It'll be a no-brainer.

I don't see such equipment coming to the Innova atleast not until the facelifted/all-new Fortuner comes around.

Things that can be reasonable to expect could be
- A power bump by not more than 10-15bhp.
- Improved refinement and NVH levels.
- Maybe perhaps a redesigned interior.
- Heavier price tag for sure. This is one chicken that will hatch golden eggs and they will make sure it ages as slowly as possible! The Innova has never really been through a major facelift/new gen model ever since it has launched!!

Looks like the Innova is going to retain some of the current design elements or atleast resemble them.

The new design seems to be less-radical in the 3/4 profile. Here is a mask'ed edit to understand it. I may be wrong.

Resembles the current innova + Mistu + Fortuner boot

Here is the outline sketch, traced out of the current photo. Hope this gives better idea.

I thought the current engine already had a VNT with intercooler? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I would love the new Innova to come in 2 states of tune - perhaps the current tune they could retain for the taxi market and launch a bumped up model for the private buyer. That way, they can keep both parties happy.

BTW, was the Ertiga parked there for reference? Because, I see the new quarter glass shaped liked the Ertiga's!

And this is a glimpse of how the FRONT RIGHT could look like

SCOOP! 2016 Toyota Innova spotted testing in Bangalore. More pics on page 7-innova2015.jpg

Expect a CRV'ish inspiration, combined with the fortuner's butch feel.

3. Taller 5th gear or best option is to add a 6th gear
4. For gods sake please remove the casio calculator MID and add a proper display in centre console!

Features wise the top end Innova already has ABS/airbags, climate control, reversing camera with parking sensors,
Just adding a 5-speed auto box to the list.

Intercooler, yes but VNT no. The funny thing is when they added the intercooler to gen2 Innova, power output remained the same. In other countries just intercooler is 118BHP and intercooler plus VNT is 142BHP.
