The new Innova Hybrid not only gets a new exterior design and updated powertrain options but also gets new underpinnings and a more premium cabin

The Toyota Innova is currently one of the most reliable and comfortable MPVs in the market and is now soon due for a major generation update. The Japanese carmaker has started the bookings of the upcoming 2023 Toyota Innova Hybrid ahead of the launch in November in Indonesia.

The new Innova Hybrid will get a new platform, new powertrain options, and a long list of other updates that will make it a worthy upgrade for buyers looking for a comfortable and well-built MPV in India.

For starters, the bookings for the new Toyota Hybrid are open in Indonesia for an amount of Rp. 15 million (approx INR 80,000). If reports are to be believed, the new Toyota Innova Hybrid is expected to be priced from Rp. 400 million (ex-showroom, Delhi) (approx INR 21.33 lakh) for the base variant in the Indonesian market. Three variants of the new Toyota Innova Hybrid will be on sale – G, V, and Venturer.

The new Innova is based on a new monocoque platform with a front-wheel drive setup and has a 2860 mm long wheelbase while the dimensions too are larger than before. Needless to say, the exterior styling has been heavily revised and now looks more sophisticated and premium.

Toyota’s new 2.0L hybrid petrol option is likely to be offered with the new Toyota Innova while we may also see a 1.8L hybrid setup being offered with this new MPV. This motor is likely to utilise the localised version of the THS II (Toyota Hybrid System II). This system consists of a twin-motor setup for strong “step-off” torque and fuel economy figures. We might also get standard petrol and diesel powertrain options being offered with the new Innova.

On the safety front, the new Innova will get Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) Suite with ADAS and features like ​​automatic emergency brakes, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, pre-collision system, dynamic radar cruise control, road sign assist and automatic high beams.
