    New name 

    The generation update adds a new suffix to the MPV’s name; it is now called the ‘ Kijang Innova Zenix’ in Indonesia. According to the automaker, the revamped model reflects its position which has “grown together with the Indonesian automotive industry and consumers for 45 years until now entering the electrification era.”

    On the contrary, the MPV will be called ‘Innova Hycross’ in India, where it will be making its debut later this week.

    New underpinnings

    The new Innova also underpins a new platform. It ditched the IMV ladder frame chassis (on which the Fortuner and Hilux are also based) in favour of the TNGA: GA-C monocoque platform. With the new architecture, the longitudinal-mounted engine RWD system is replaced by a transversely-mounted drivetrain and FWD setup.

    Along with that, the new underpinnings also led to the extension of the wheelbase. Here‘s a comparison of the old and new Toyota Innova dimensions -

    New powertrains

    Moving to the next big upgrade, which is a hybrid powertrain, adding electrification to this Japanese people-hauler for the first time in its history all thanks to the new platform.

    The hybrid setup comprises a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine churning out a maximum power output of 152 PS at 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 187 Nm from 4,400 to 5,200 rpm. It is coupled with an electric motor which is good for making 113 PS and 205 Nm. The combined system output is rated at 186 PS. Also part of the kit is a Ni-MH battery pack, placed under the front seats.

    Besides the hybrid mill, Toyota offers one more engine option with the new Innova. That’s a pure ICE 2.0-litre four-popper generating 174 PS and 205 Nm. Unfortunately, the MPV is no longer available with a diesel engine.

    As for transmitting power to the front wheels, the strong hybrid mill is paired with an e-CVT while the petrol engine comes with a CVT gearbox.

    New styling 

    Coming to the Innova Zenix styling, the new MPV features an evolved design with an upright nose featuring a trapezoidal grille and angular LED headlights, exuding an SUV-like vibe. The bumper is also restyled with a new full-width element connecting the fog light housings. On the sides, we can find sharp creases and beefy wheel arches housing large 18-inch alloys, and at the rear, a new pair of LED combination tail lights complete the look.
