The next generation Toyota Innova has been caught on camera once again in the country while undergoing test.
Expected to make its debut in 2015 and hit the roads in early 2016, the next generation Toyota Innova looks almost identical to the current generation Innova. In the latest spy shot snapped by Autocar India folks, the vehicle is seen heavily disguised; however, we can make out the few updates received for the new car.
The 2016 Innova is likely to get a new front fascia with rectangular grille, which has three slats on top and three smaller slats at the bottom. The front design of the car fall in line with the company's global offering and the car will be based on a new platform called Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA).
In terms of its mechanical specifications, the MPV is likely to carry on with the same motor of the current Innova. However, Toyota may offer a tuned version of the same to deliver a better performance. There are also rumours that the new Innova would get power from a new Toyota diesel engine coupled to an automatic transmission.
Once it hits the market, the new generation Innova will be pinned to rival the newly launched Honda Mobilio, Chevrolet Enjoy and Nissan Evalia.
