The car automotive industry witnessed its first launch of the year 2015 when Toyota Kirloskar motors launched an updated version of its MPV Innova on 5th January 2015 with a new price range between 10.51 lakh to 15.80 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Toyota launched ‘Innova’ limited edition in order to celebrate the successful 10 years journey of its MPV Innova brand in India. Innova received last update in October 2013 in both petrol and diesel engines at the price between 9.77-15.06 lakhs.
But this time updated Innova will be available only with diesel engine which produces 100bhp power and 200Nm torque paired to a manual transmission with 13.3L mileage. 2015 Innova is almost similar to the 2013 Innova except the few additions and off course with higher price. Toyota raised the price not due to new features but because of the rollback of excise duties by the government.
2015 Innova boards with some new features like smoked headlamps with chrome garnish, body graphics at the side profile, new front grille with silver bezel fog lamps, rear-combi tail lights with chrome accents, new dark grey 17 inch alloy wheels and new exclusive body paint option- Bronze MICA metallic and Silver MICA metallic.
