Innovative interiors: What’s inside the new Toyota Innova


Toyota recently gave the Innova MPV a facelift which includes a new front grille design, new bumpers, lowered front fog lamps, and black plastic moldings on the front turn signals.

Overall, the new Toyota Innova looks more chiseled than its predecessor and, with an abundance of chrome trims, appears to be more luxurious even in lower variants.

Amid these minor exterior updates, many ask if Toyota even bothered updating the Innova’s cabin. Interested to find out? Join us to see just how innovative Toyota’s new Innova is on the inside.

1. From simple to noble

The Toyota Innova is known not only for its large capacity but also for the breadth of its variety. Lower variants come with simple materials like the typical black fabric seats, a urethane steering wheel, and plenty of hard plastics.


Upper trims, on the other hand, get a more luxurious finish. We’re talking about Noble Brown fabric seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood accents, and chrome-finished door handles.

The console box for the range-topping variant also comes with a soft-lid and wood accents.

2. Captain seats

Still on the range-topping variant. The Toyota Innova features second-row captain seats so passengers get enough room and they don’t rub elbows with each other. Not only does it give each person enough room, but also features aimed to make both short and long trips convenient and comfortable.

The second-row captain seats are equipped with slide, recline, and one-touch tumble features.


At the front of the captain seats are rear seat pockets and a folding tray table that can hold a decent amount of weight and has a slot for your favorite cup of joe.


3. Updated infotainment

While the touchscreen infotainment head from both the facelifted and pre-facelift versions kind of look identical, Toyota added a few new updates to the multi-functional audio head unit.


The lower trims get a 6.7-inch display while the upper trims get a seven-inch unit. Across the board, Toyota made both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard.

In the same way, all variants equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system get six speakers while the sole variant left with a 2DIN audio unit gets four speakers.

4. Improved safety

While it’s not exactly an interior amenity, the safety features of the new Toyota Innova are better than its predecessor.

Stability control and hill-start assist are now made standard across the board. However, the full suite of airbags, as well as the reverse camera with clearance back sonar, is still reserved for the range-topping variant.


The Toyota Innova is currently offered in six variants. Prices range from P1,186,000 (base model) to P1,754,000 (for the top-spec variant).
