Default Toyota Innova 2015 vs Toyota Innova 2016

Actually the wheelbase has remained same and the overall length has increased from 4585mm to 4765. Thereby increasing front and rear overhangs. Autocar review says that this has freed up more space in the third row as well as the boot space which is quite visible from photos too.

Thanks for the info. Are these seats set to your initial driving position? If that is the case, then the knee room has certainly reduced. I've traveled in the old one as a passenger several times and never complained about the leg room in general (I'm 5'11").

Would be interesting to see if the TBHP review finds this to be a problem too.

Thank you very much, the information was very valuable coming from someone who owns the best Innova going out and the new Innova coming in

Toyota should not have compromised on interior space, I don't know if they are going to retain the same price for the new Innova and that might be the reason they have compromised on a few things here and there

Please take a test drive of the new Innova and update if possible

Wow, even in Qatar innova does not get side airbags.

Also looking at the brochure I noticed a statement:

"energy absorbing structure in pillar and roof **** create a head impact protective structure"

Seriously toyota without a side airbags you think the soft dampening material in the pillar/ is good enough. Cmon.

Yes, the car is bigger than my model in terms of height, width and length but it didn't helped in increasing the interior length. You can look at the brochure images, the new models interior dimension is - Length 260cm x width 149cm x height 124.5 cm but the old models interior dimension stands at Length 288cm x width 149cm x height 127.5 cm. So new model is 28 cm short in interior length which has reduced the legroom.

I think there is a typo in the brochure you have uploaded, just check out the pictorial above the brochure, it states internal length as 2800mm.

Images 5 and 7 are for the old innova (look at the rear glass shape). Indeed looks like the new Innova Crysta as lesser interior space (length to be precise) than the outgoing one.

Also, if I compare the boot pic in this post above and the boot pic as show in the ACI review of the Innova crysta, the space difference is a lot. Definitely needs further investigation.

You were correct. As said images 5 & 7 is for old innova.

When i first saw the boot space without setting the first and second row leg room for my height, i was also satisfied. But once it was set, i found the difference. I will upload the other two images which shows bigger boot space with lesser third row leg room.

Its confirmed, I too had taken a visit to the Dubai showroom. Fortunately they had an old model in there, they are clearing out the stock on a reduced price. Majo is absolutely right, interior space is down. Tried checking out sitting in different positions. Overall dimensions are considerably bigger, but interior is down, couldn't really make out where they lost the extra space. The freshness and the overall new interior look creating an illusion of a bigger car. The weight is also up. But the new engines will definitely help improve the mileage but don't believe it will be a big difference because of the added weight.

There is this new thread started comparing the 2015 Innova to the new one

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=175153 (Toyota Innova 2015 vs Toyota Innova 2016)

The major (& extremely counterintuitive) finding is that the new one is 28 cm SHORTER on the Inside.

At least for me, that is a show stopper.

As per the interview of Innova chief engineer by Autocar India -The increase in length of Innova was to meet future pedestrian crash regulations than to increase interior space. But he claimed they have improved second row roominess while the overall interior dimensions remain roughly same as the outgoing Innova.
