Japanese car maker Toyota is finally set to pull the plug on the current generation Innova to make way for its new gen 2016 model, suggest the emerging reports.
The folks at Team BHP who have managed to get their hands on to the future plans of Toyota reveal that the current gen Innova, which had a successful run in the Indian market, will be taken off the production line in the next three months time so as to start the production of the new gen Innova. Going by the report, the GX trim of current gen Innova, which mainly caters to the taxi segment in India, will continue to be in production for a year; however all other variants of the model will be stopped.
Next gen Innova, which is expected to get a global unveiling later this year, will be built on a new platform and is likely to be lighter than the current generation. Under the hood, 2016 Innova is likely to include 2.4-litre or 2.5-litre diesel engine with six-speed automatic and manual transmission.
The model is expected to get features like dual-tone donned interior with big multi-info touchscreen and 3-spoke steering wheel. The new Innova is likely to be shown at Auto expo, 2016 and in India the next gen MPV is rumoured to get a price tag higher than the current model.
