Toyota created the IMV platform to serve its budget-oriented lineup, and one of the products of this venture is the Innova. The IMV platform consists of a body-on-chassis setup, offering more refinement in its larger vehicles. The Innova received its second facelift for the 2012 model-year. The minivan attempts to resemble a 4WD in height, with a high waistline and four forward-opening doors, but it ends up looking like a van. The only engine is a 2.7-litre four-cylinder straight from the Fortuner, offered with a 4-speed automatic in the UAE, but a 5-speed manual is offered as a base model in Saudi Arabia and other GCC markets. All versions are well-equipped, seat eight people and get a rear seat slide mechanism to improve legroom, along with infinitely-configurable seats. Standard features include new CD/MP3 stereo with 4 speakers and USB port, dual-zone manual a/c, power & tilt steering, power windows, keyless entry, central locking, multi-information display, fabric seats, fake wood trim, 15-inch steel wheels, fog lamps, airbags for driver and front passenger, and ABS brakes. The top trim gets rear parking sensors, auto-dimming mirror, 15-inch alloys, 6-speaker stereo, auto a/c, leatherette steering wheel, chrome door handles and faux wood. Incidentally, the Innova is considered a luxury vehicle in third-world markets.
