The refreshed 2021 Toyota Innova has officially made its debut. The first sightings of the vehicle were through online leaked images. At the time these weren’t confirmed and some even thought it was just a custom body kit. Now, however, with the MPV being officially launched in Vietnam, and in Indonesia, we can confirm that this is the facelifted Innova. The popular MPV is now on sale in Vietnam and in Indonesia with other ASEAN markets to follow soon. It brings with it a new refreshed face along with minor changes to keep it updated with the times.
On the outside, its shape of the vehicle is the same as the pre-facelifted mode. Where the real changes that can be seen are in the front of the vehicle. The Toyota MPV now gets a restyled face that features a bigger grille along with a new lower bumper. New projector headlights can also be seen on the facelifted MPV. Its park lights as well as its signal lights now come in a new layout. In the pre-facelifted model, these were horizontal, while in the updated model these are now vertical. Along with the change in layout new garnishes can also be seen added to the vehicle. Lower variants will get silver plastic accents around the grille, while higher trim-levels get chrome. The facelifted model also now comes with a new set of two-tone alloy wheels that help give the vehicle a sportier look.
On the inside, the facelifted 2021 Toyota Innova hasn’t changed much as far as the dashboard is concerned. A new infotainment system is present in the refreshed vehicle, however, we cannot confirm if it will come to the Philippine spec unit. Aside from this, the seating layout is the same along with the fabric seat material.
It has yet to be confirmed if the refreshed Toyota Innova once it arrives in the Philippines will be getting a power upgrade. In the markets that the refreshed MPV is currently on sale, it does not have any similar variants to what is locally available. Thus we cannot confirm if the 2.8-liter turbo-diesel Toyota Innova sold by Toyota Philippines will in fact come with more power. There is also no word yet as to when the Japanese brand plans to refresh the local Innova model. However, we expect Toyota to launch the refreshed Innova sometime within the first half of 2021.
