    Overview

    One of the cars from Toyota which is arguably very legendary and often the choice of many families is the Toyota Innova. This is the development of the more premium Toyota Innova and also the more features that are embedded in the car. And of course with all these developments make this car even more interesting.

    History

    Toyota Innova Launched in 2005. Produced as a replacement for the Toyota Revo, the first batch of Innovas had the 2.5 diesel engine and boasts an unparalleled ease of maintenance feature. It shared a resemblance with the prior established Toyota MPVs and minivans, namely the 2004-2009 Toyota Sienna and Wish.

    The automobile industry encountered a surprise when it replaced the best-selling Revo but since then, it has become a favorite of Filipino families. Its utility seats made for efficient space and the comfort it provided for both driver and passengers. The Innova is a long-aided testament to style and mobility, and it has become the affordable package that fits every Pinoy lifestyle. The interior was an upgrade from the Revo with more curves and amenities than the previous model.

    Considered as the country’s best-selling commercial vehicle, its success because of its multipurpose features have captured the heart of consumers and it has since then been critically acclaimed. Its value for money and reliable functionality is the reason why it has been the go-to vehicle for everyman here in the country.

    New generation

    Toyota Innova 2022 is a 8 Seater MPV available between a price range of ₱1.186 - ₱1.739 Million in the Philippines. It is available in 5 colors, 6 variants, 1 engine, and 2 transmissions option: Manual and Automatic in the Philippines. The Toyota Innova's competitors in the local market includes the Mitsubishi Xpander, Suzuki Ertiga, GAC GN6, and the Maxus G50. 

    Price

    The Toyota Innova is one of the best-sellers from the leading automotive brand in the country, Toyota Motor Philippines. It is a compact MPV that can accommodate seven occupants while other variants have a seating capacity of eight. The Toyota Innova's prices in the Philippines ranges from PHP 1,186,000 to PHP 1,739,000. It has six variants in the market starting with the Innova J, up to the top-spec Innova V.

  • Exterior

     01

    Eksterior

    Talking about the exterior, in terms of dimensions, the Innova 2022 has a width of 1,830 mm, a height of 1,795 mm, and a length of 4,735 mm. While the wheelbase or wheelbase is about 2,750 mm, using two-toned alloy wheels 16 inches that are tough and stylish (type G, V, & Luxury). You can choose some classic colors with calm and soft nuances that seem masculine.

    Upfront, the Toyota Innova features a multi-reflector halogen headlight except for the V variant that comes with LED projector-type headlamps with clearance lamps. This MPV comes with a colored-keyed bumper with a rear reflector. The grille, however, varies from one variant to another.

    Dimensions

    Height 1,795 mm
    Wheelbase 2,750 mm

     02

    Lighting

    For illumination, the 2.0E and 2.0G variants come equipped with automatic halogen multi-reflector headlamps, bulb daytime running light and manual leveling. 2.0G comes with a rear fog lamp, while 2.0E doesn't.

    The top-spec 2.0X comes with an automatic LED projector, LED daytime running light and automatic leveling headlamps, including rear LED fog lamps.

    All variant comes with Follow Me Home functions.

    Wheels

     03

    Both 2.0E and 2.0G variant shares similar 16-inch alloy wheels shod in 205/65/16 rubber. The 2.0X wears one size bigger, 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/55/17 rubber.

  • Interior

     01

    Dashboard

    A modern, curvaceous dashboard layout is the first thing that greets you here, and the monotone scheme used in the past has been abandoned. While it is devoid of any soft-touch material, the material quality in the Innova is of a high standard.

    The 2.0X and 2.0G model features faux wood trim bits running across the dash for a touch of elegant, while the lower-spec 2.0E comes with a silver-painted trim.

    Space and Practicality

    As a practical people mover, space is aplenty. The 2.0E and 2.0G offer seating of up to eight people with its 2-3-3 layout, while the 2.0X seats seven due to the Captain Seat arrangement in the second row. For rear passenger easiness, all variants feature one-touch tumble, sliding & reclining mechanism for the second-row seat. The cupholder is a must-have item and these come standard as well in all variants.

    Boot

    300 litres of boot space comes standard with all the seats up, but in the case of needing more space, the second and third-row seats can be folded for more storage room, standard across all variants. In comparison, the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid has only 280 litres of boot space with all the seats up, and only the second-row seat can be folded, although the boot opening offers dual-opening options, where the rear windscreen is accessible without having to open the entire boot. Certainly a plus point for the Serena.

    Safety Features

    All variants come with seven airbags (including one for the driver’s knee), ABS with EBD and brake assist, Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), reverse camera and ISOFIX rear child seat anchors. Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is optional, although we think this should have come standard as well.

    Comfort Features

     

     02

    Captain chair seating style in 2.0X is roomy and comfortable, but if you have more people on board, the 2.0E and 2.0G are able to do that just fine without sacrificing legroom. Provided you don’t slide the second-row seats all the way back, legroom for those at the far back quite good, with a fairly sizeable seat design.

    Another cool feature is the Roof Ambient Lighting (only for 2.0X and 2.0G) that mimics the one available in the higher end Toyota Alphard and Vellfire, which create a relaxing and classy atmosphere with the cabin illumination located on the front and ceiling of the vehicle.

    The 2.0X and 2.0G variant comes with front and rear automatic air conditioning, but you have to do it manually in the 2.0E variant.

    Infotainment

    Both 2.0X and 2.0G features 9” touchscreen, and the system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support with wi-fi, voice recognition, USB, Bluetooth and reverse camera, while the sound is channeled through 6-speakers as standard.

    The design of the touchscreen looks classy as well and certainly does not look aftermarket and cheap as compared to the one in Toyota C-HR.

    The lowest spec 2.0E makes do with a conventional CD player with tuner. Thankfully there is AUX-Jack, USB and Bluetooth function which is a necessity in this current era.

  • Powertrain

    Engine

     01

    The facelifted 2nd-gen Innova only has one engine choice, a 2.8-liter inline-4 turbodiesel. On the six-speed automatic variants, the said engine can make up to 171 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque. On the five-speed manual variants, it can churn out up to 167 horsepower and 343 Nm of torque.

    Transmission

     02

    6-speed torque converter automatic with ‘Sequential Shifter’ is standard across the variants.

    Drivetrain

    The Toyota Innova is a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive MPV.

  • Driving Performance

    Acceleration

    The Toyota Innova did 0-100kmh in a less than stellar time of 16.44 seconds. Its rival, the Nissan Serena did it in 13.5 seconds. Needs more grunt, for sure.

    Engine Performance

    As the Innova is quite the heavyweight, the 1TR-FE is not the most responsive powertrain all around despite the improvement. It will cruise around comfortably, but if you want to rush, then the Nissan Serena S-Hybrid provides better acceleration.

    Unlike the Indonesian model, there is no diesel option offered here. It will surely help to propel the Innova better than the petrol engine.

    Transmission Performance

    The 6-speed torque converter is smooth and is a far cry from the old 4-speed from its predecessor. To compensate for the weight, the kick-down response is shorter, and the ratio has been fine-tuned for optimum fuel consumption and less engine noise.

    Steering and Handling

    As a people mover, the steering feel is adequate and nicely weighted for a car this size, although it is not as agile nor as light as the one in Nissan Serena S-Hybrid.

    Due to its weight and increased height, the Innova response is slow and a little clunky, but that as to be expected.

  • Ride Comfort

    Sound Proofing

    Toyota claims the Toyota Innova is up to 2.1 dB quieter than its predecessor while traveling between 60-80 km/h.

    Passenger Comfort

    Soundproofing of the Toyota Innova is good, with the usage of good sound insulation material and expansion foam. It certainly adds to the premium feel surrounding the cabin.

     01

  • Fuel Economy

     01

    Fuel Consumption

    Fuel consumption is claimed to be 9.1-litre/100 km (from 11.2-litre/100 km in its predecessor). The Serena, with its hybrid powertrain, consumes 7.04-litre/100km.

  • Conclusion

    Toyota spends a dime on making the Toyota Innova feel and look more premium compared to its predecessor, and we dare say it’s a job well done. It addressed a lot of the previous model weaknesses and brought it up to a level where it deserves some respect.

    Space is aplenty, the seats are comfortable, good sound system, what more would you want? More power and torque, please. The current four-cylinder is lethargic and it requires more effort to push the heavy body around.

    The Nissan Serena feels more lively and engaging to drive. However, for the non-enthusiast drivers, they will certainly appreciate the calm feeling and smoothness of the Toyota Innova.
