Petrol-powered versions of the facelifted Innova are offered in five trim levels – G, G Luxury, V, V Luxury and Venturer, while the diesel powertrain is offered in three trim levels, G, V and Venturer. For Indonesia, all trim levels are offered with both manual and automatic transmission choices.

Key visual changes are led by the trapezoidal grille in front, which is framed on its sides and lower edge in chrome, while it has its slats finished in dark gray instead of the pre-facelift’s arrangement of dual chrome slats that bridged the headlamps. On the V and V Luxury variants, these are LED projector units.

The rear end gets a hexagonal license plate garnish finished in black, and the tail lamp assemblies also get darkened edges around the main lamp sections. Wheels are 16-inch two-tone alloys across the board, shod in 205/65 tyres.

Unique to the Venturer variant are a darkened chrome trim on the trapezoidal front grille, along with a bumper spoiler treatment. At the back, a spoiler is mounted at the top of the tailgate, while rolling stock is a set of 17-inch two-tone alloys.

The second row continues to get captain seats, with V and V Luxury variants also receiving a centre console-mounted display for media playback.

Further cabin comforts include an integrated air purifier with ioniser in the Luxury variants, and ambient lighting also features in V and V Luxury variants. Safety equipment on the 2021 Innova includes dual front airbags and driver’s knee airbag, as well as Isofix child seat anchors, stability control, hill start assist, ABS and EBD on all variants; the Venturer gains side and curtain airbags.

The Venturer cabin is distinguished by darker wooden trim pieces, adding black leatherette upholstery with red contrast stitching on the captain seats. In here, the nine-inch infotainment unit adds near-field communication NFC to the feature set available on V and V Luxury variants.

    Hope that Malaysia will have the diesel turbo option as well, 2.0 petrol just too weak for this size, many other regions get 2.7 petrol engine instead.

    Hope that Malaysia can get the 2.4 turbo diesel version as well, the 2.0 petrol seems too weak to pull this body size. Other regions market get 2.7 petrol which fit to this size, but road tax will be costly.

    Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, please! And to those complained about it’s “sampanness”, it is expected, bcoz it is built on ladder frame. This MPV is not meant to be driven fast. This is supposed to be Toyota’s answer to KIA Grand Carnival. And they should have diesel as commented by others too.

    The question is, why does umw toyota dont want the diesel version saleable in malaysia???… Especially both manual and auto transmission must give way for option. Right?…. Not everybody in malaysia are afford to buy the fortuner though. Since the innova is exist, just give us choices to choose the best for our budget to buy… Anybody agree?…
