UMW Toyota Motor has officially announced the new Toyota Innova 2.0X. The 2.0X is the top variant of the MPV range and is priced at RM132,800 on the road without insurance.

For that, you get one less seat than the regular Innova, but more comfortable ones with “Business Class” level of comfort in the second row. The two captain chairs in the middle row (with retractable cup holders, a seatback table and individual armrests) transforms the 2.0X into a seven-seater (2-2-3), instead of eight.

It’s also the only Innova to get leather upholstery. On the topic of seats, the driver’s chair has eight-way power adjustment.

The rest of the equipment list is shared with the 2.0G, which means that one gets a wood trim, front/rear auto air con, Optitron instrument panel with a 4.2-inch colour multi-info display, foldable seatback tables, ambient lighting, reverse camera, leather-wrapped steering with wood trim, easy closer tailgate, keyless entry with push start, and an eight-inch DVD-AVX infotainment system.

Compared to the 2.0G, the previous top variant, the 2.0X adopts a “crossover concept”. Styling add-ons include chrome trim on the front and front rear under spoilers with chrome accents. Overfenders on the wheel arches and chrome black moulding along the window sills are the other changes, along with a unique lower back and back door garnish.

The 2.0X comes with LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights and LED foglamps – they’re all LEDs at the front. Also exclusive to the X are 17-inch black alloys with 215/55 rubber, an inch up from the other trim levels.

For safety, seven airbags, ABS, EBD, BA, VSC and hill start assist are standard across the Innova range, which has five stars in the ASEAN NCAP crash test. The MPV is powered by a 2.0 litre Dual VVT-i engine with 139 PS and 183 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Power from the 1TR-FE goes to the rear axle via a six-speed automatic transmission and there are Eco and Power drive modes.

Now available as an accessory for the Innova is a “Panoramic View Monitor” which gives the driver a 360-degree bird’s eye view around the vehicle. Four cameras around the vehicle combine images on the DVD-AVX screen to aid parking. The Digital Video Recorder (DVR) a.k.a. dashcam is also an option, along with security/solar film. Full specs on
