2021 Toyota Innova arriving soon in Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR: Happy New Year to all our readers! The year 2021 has started with a bang for the Malaysian Automobile market with Toyota Malaysia confirming the arrival of two of its most popular models update - the 2021 Innova MPV and 2021 Fortuner SUV. For both the models, Toyota Malaysia has opened the registration of interest page on its official website that when filled will provide exclusive updates on the new Innova and Fortuner.
Toyota Malaysia in a way is teasing us with the new models, keeping all the details to itself at the moment. However, we can get the clues on the refreshed MPV from Indonesia market where the new Innova arrived last October. Also, we get to see the front design partially assuring styling changes.
Taking about design changes, the 2021 Innova gets a brand-new trapezoidal-shaped grille unit with a thick chrome frame along the sides and lower edges. The grille also gets dark grey finished horizontal slats inserts that seem to be connected to the MPVs now sleeker headlamps. Also noticeable is the MPVs new fog lamp vertical casing and new front bumper.
Also visible in the teaser is a dark, five-spoke wheel which in the Toyota Indonesia Innova lineup is part of the MPVs Venturer variant. The said trim benefits from additional bold design elements like front bumper with a shroud at the base and chrome trimming, grille with darkened chrome trims.
The rear-end of the refreshed MPV looks more or less the same as before with the same L-shaped tail lights as before, however this time with darkened edges.
The new Innova carries forward the dashboard from the pre-facelift model, with improvements on the equipment front.
The Indonesian-spec Innova is offered in two engine options - 2.0-litre 4-cyl petrol and a 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit. On the transmission front, both the engines can be paired to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox.
We still aren't sure what 2021 Toyota Innova package holds for the Malaysian market, however, the initial picture sure looks promising.
