The famous Japanese automaker Toyota manufactured the best design of compact MPV named as Toyota Innova. Many other countries also had Toyota Innova. Innova was first produced and marketed in Indonesia in the year 2004 under the supervision of Toyota Astra Motor. However, the construction of the vehicle body frame was the same as Fortuner SUV and Hilux pickup truck. Toyota launched the car in the Indonesian market, and it officially launched as Toyota Kijang Innova. 

Furthermore, the Indonesian market is fond of the ever-green Toyota Innova Diesel. This Multi-purpose vehicle is the best reliable family car ever. Toyota Innova has continuously best-selling cars every year — the best vehicle in the Indonesia Market so far. Let’s have a look at the salient features of this MPV.


The exterior design of Toyota Innova Diesel upgraded this year with some fascinating looks. There are no overall changes in the shape of the exterior body. Toyota Innova’s exterior design is not showy. The outer of the vehicle has a glossy shine. You can enjoy the crystal led tail lights. The front grill had slight changes as compared to the older model. Overall, there is no significant change in the basic design of this multi-purpose vehicle.


The interior of the Toyota Innova Diesel is not made for the soft touch and feel. The built of the cabin is for durability and reliability for long-term use. The cabin has hard plastic. The seats have the standard fabric upholstery on them. The cabin couldn’t win the award in terms of a premium look. The interior has numerous storage boxes found all in the cabin. The pockets on the doors are also spacy. 


Toyota Innova can take eight people with a 3rd-row option at the rear. The design of the MPV is for a comfortable journey. The third row has more space than other SUVs offered by the company. The trunk has a spacious area. The design of Innova’s ride with coil springs all over the four tires makes it more comfortable. It is much better than any SUV offered by the company. Innova has no noise isolation or sound-deadening on the tight roads. The driver can quickly feel the jerks, vibrations, and harshness from the engine area. Overall, the comfort of the ride is slightly quandary. But, one can tolerate this on long-drives. The air condition is much better than other models. The doors have got elbow rest with better cushioning to ease your drive. 


Toyota Innova has not got the best technology. Innova does not provide the speed-sensor locking system for doors. The automatic headlights, cruise control, rain sensors, and the reverse camera are not available in Innova E. Although the remarkable features are the powered windows and some decent audio system controls on the steering wheel.

Additionally, one can never expect some high-spec technology. The all-new Innova 2.8 Diesel with Automatic transmission is available in the market. You can take into the Innova Diesel’s pricing.

The main reason behind the success of the Toyota Innova is the safety of these MPVs. The Innova Diesel 2.8 AT has the ABS with EBD along with curtain airbags for driver and passengers. It also has the hill assist control and brake assist. Toyota Innova was rated with four stars under the stability control in ASEAN NCAP. 

Driving & Handling

Innova delivers the same power found in Fortuner because it has shared the same 2.8L 1GD-FTV diesel engine. The MPV is not too quick because it is designed to pull enormous load easily. Plus, the jerk movements coming through the steering wheel is felt easily.  

In terms of handling, the Innova provides decent ground clearance and feedback. It feels very nice and wide while driving. However, driving through tight spaces has always been a challenge.
