Toyota Innova facelift launched in Malaysia image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has just released its facelifted version of the Innova in Malaysia, originally presented at this year’s Indonesia International Motor Show in July.

According to Toyota, the “new” Innova will be offered in three variants and the entry-level version, the 2.0 E with manual transmission, has been priced at RM 97.500, the 2.0 E with automatic transmission its customers will have to pay RM 102.500 and the top-of-the-line 2.0 G automatic costs RM 110.600.

Toyota says that the facelifted Innova’s engine remains the same in the form of the 1TR-FE 2.0 liter inline four-cylinder, which is developing a total output of 136 HP at 5.600 rpm and has a peak torque of 182 Nm at 4.000 rpm, mated to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.

Don’t expect much when talking about safety because the facelifted Toyota Innova is offering only one SRS airbag as standard while the 2.0 G will get two airbags and ABS, which isn’t available on the other versions.

There’s no word yet on when the Innova will hit the Malaysian showrooms or if the people carrier will make it out of Asia and onto other markets but one thing is for sure, Toyota will have to work on the vehicle’s safety before we can see it on the roads near us.
