The Toyota Innova offered in Malaysia has been updated to the latest facelifted version which made its world debut at the Indonesia International Motor Show in July this year.

Three variants of the facelifted Innova are available in Malaysia – the 2.0E with manual transmission at RM97,500, the 2.0E automatic at RM102,500 and the top of the line 2.0G automatic at RM110,600, all prices quoted for private registration in Peninsular Malaysia with metallic paint.

The most obvious change is at the front where you get a new grille and bumper that reminds you of the Toyota Camry facelift and helps widen the appearance of the Innova. The photo above was snapped at the Indonesian International Motor Show (read our July story which has a huge photo gallery).

The side features revised side protection moldings and a wider chrome trip running beneath teh center line of the Innova. Toyota also says there are more prominent creases on the wheel arches and more distinctive character lines on the fenders, which help the Innova look more dynamic. There’s a new 15 inch alloy wheel design, wrapped with 205/65R15 tyres. At the rear, the biggest change are the new tail lamps.

On the interior, the dashboard has been revised to have a more “horizontal” orientation which separates the center console into an upper and lower zone. The 2.0E model has its control dials redesigned to offer easier operation. There’s also a new 4-spoke steering wheel for all models, and there’s also steering leather wrapping and dark wood trimming for the 2.0G version.

The instrument panel cluster has been redesigned with a black face for higher contrast to improve visibility in all lighting conditions. The Optitron meters have a silver-finished trim ring with turquoise blue highlights in the meter face design. For analog meters on the lower end models, there is a glossy black trim ring. Only the 2.0G gets a multi-info display which offers various info such as average fuel consumption; real-time fuel consumption; average speed on a journey; the length of time that the engine has been running; the range available on the amount of fuel in the tank; the direction the vehicle is headed in (compass), and the temperature outside the vehicle.

The engine remains the same – the 1TR-FE 2.0 litre inline-4 engine putting out 136 PS at 5,600rpm and 182Nm of torque at 4,000rpm, mated to either a 5-speed manual for the 2.0E MT model or a 4-speed automatic for the 2.0E AT and 2.0G AT.

In terms of safety, only the top of the line 2.0G model gets 2 SRS airbags for the front passengers while the two 2.0E models only have one driver airbag, which is pretty sad as there are cars like the Perodua Myvi which now have dual SRS airbags as standard for all models. All models have ABS brakes.
