Everything You Need to Know About the 2021 Toyota Innova
As we reported yesterday, UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) will indeed be launching the 2021 Toyota Innova range very soon, with updated styling as well as additional safety features as standard.
With effect from today, customers can place bookings for the new Innova which is available in three variants. The three variants available and the following prices are:
- Toyota Innova 2.0X – from RM129,677.00
- Toyota Innova 2.0G – from RM121,483.00
- Toyota Innova 2.0 E – from RM111,622.00
There are six exterior colour choices – Medium Silver Metallic, Attitude Black Mica, Phantom Brown, Silver Metallic, Super White II and Bronze Mica Metallic (new). For the Innova 2.0X, there is an additional choice of colour called Crimson Spark Red Metallic.
As mentioned earlier, the 2021 Innova comes with many cosmetic changes on the exterior.
A chrome and black theme is used for the grille with the door mirrors having chrome housings and integrated turn signals (Innova 2.0X and Innova 2.0G).
The foglamps and foglamp bezels have also been redesigned and contribute to a bolder appearance.
The Innova 2.0X also comes with new wheel arch mouldings, new bodyside mouldings and redesigned side skirts that add a sporty touch. While the lightweight 17-inch alloy rims of the Innova 2.0X are now in Dark Mica Metallic instead of black, those on the Innova 2.0G get a more dynamic new design.
At the rear, the garnish on the back door has been restyled, while the roof spoiler (only for the Innova 2.0X) has been reprofiled for aerodynamic improvements.
Inside, the 9-inch capacitive touchscreen for the infotainment system also serves as a display for the Panoramic View Monitor (PVM) which is now standard for the Innova 2.0X and Innova 2.0G.
The PVM display has been changed from a 2D view to a 3D view to provide the driver with a better perspective of the vehicle and its surroundings for more precise manoeuvring in tight spaces.
Responding to customer feedback, more charging ports have also been added. The front 2 USB ports have been repositioned in the dashboard from the centre console and an additional USB port has been provided for those in the third row of seats.
All the ports have Fast Charging capability for compatible smartphones and other portable devices. Additionally, a wireless charging pad located in the centre console is also available as an option which can be included at the time of booking.
The Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) systems which can help prevent collisions with other vehicles are now standard for the Innova 20X and Innova 2.0G.
Besides the standard electronic security system, to provide greater peace of mind to owners, UMWT is now installing a Toyota Vehicle Telematics System (VTS) which can track the vehicle’s movements using GPS and GSM technology. In the event that the vehicle is stolen, the VTS Command Centre can determine its location and inform relevant authorities to make recovery faster.
As with most of the models offered by UMWT, there is a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage, subject to terms and conditions stated in the Owner’s Handbook. This will be welcome by owners who clock high mileage each year as they can enjoy peace of mind for the full 5-year period.
