The Toyota Innova has been the best-selling model for the Japanese car maker in India. Toyota gave the Innova a facelift last year and now the next gen Innova has been spotted again.
The next generation models of the Toyota Innova and Toyota Fortuner will be based on a new platform called Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA). This was confirmed by Naomi Ishii, Toyota India’s new boss. The Toyota New Global Architecture is similar to the MQB platform from Volkswagen and will spawn a range of cars based on common parts.
The front of the next gen Innova takes design cues from Toyota’s latest design language which is also seen on its other global offerings. The rectangular grille gets three big slats on top and three smaller ones at the bottom and is wider and taller. The headlamps on the test mule are projector units.
