The all-new Toyota Innova will be among the four introductions from UMW Toyota this year, and thanks to paultan.org reader Daran, we now have our first initial sighting of the MPV in Malaysia. Wearing a trade plate and completely devoid of any camouflage, badges or emblems, the Innova was spotted driving along a local highway.

Design cues that indicate that this is indeed the new Innova can be seen at the front, where the prominent front grille with two chrome slats can be seen, flanked by what appears to be halogen headlamps. However, a clear shot of the MPV’s rear reveals the Innova’s revised rear-end and the new tail lamp design that encroaches towards the centre of the lift gate.

First revealed in Indonesia back in November, the Innova is offered there with either a slightly uprated 2.0 litre Dual VVT-i 1TR-FE four-cylinder petrol engine (139 PS at 5,600 rpm and 183 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm) or a 2.4 litre 2GD-FTV four-cylinder turbodiesel that debuted on the Hilux (149 PS at 3,400 rpm and 359 Nm of torque from 1,200 to 2,600 rpm).

Three variants are offered for the Indonesian market – G Type, V Type and the range-topping Q-Type. The latter, in its diesel guise, gets all the goodies, including LED projector headlights with LED DRLs (the G and V gets reflector halogens), eight-inch touchscreen entertainment system, seven airbags and VSC electronic stability control.

Currently in Malaysia, the Innova is offered in three 2.0L versions – E (MT), E (AT) and G (AT), with prices starting from RM103,980 (on-the-road with insurance).

For now, these spyshots don’t really provide a lot of information about what equipment will be available when the all-new Innova is launched here. Based on the Indonesian-spec Innova, which you can read about, here, what kit are you expecting for our local-spec Innova.
