This, as you've seen in our review earlier, is the "all-new" Innova, according to Toyota. Only, it's not an all-new Toyota Innova. What it is, is a refresh. And as is the rule with refreshes, all it gets is a nip here and a tuck there.

There's a new, rather conspicuous front grille, a redesigned front bumper with chrome-encased foglamps, a creased bonnet, a chunk of chrome running from one end of the tailgate to the other, below which rest a couple of reflectors. If you talk about the new range-topping 'Z' variant, you also get two-tone leather seats, fake wood on the dash and door panels, some new body graphics, a chrome-finished exhaust muffler and a rear spoiler.

Mechanically, it's the same car, so it still uses the 2.5-litre diesel motor, which puts out 101bhp and 200Nm of torque. The five-speed manual gearbox stays right where it is.

Toyota's only revealed prices for the diesel version as of now. The base GX 7 Seater costs Rs. 12.45 lakh, the GX 8 Seater costs Rs. 12.50 lakh, and you pay Rs. 14.53 lakh for the VX 7 Seater, Rs. 14.57 lakh for the VX 8 Seater, and Rs. 15.06 lakh for the top-of-the-line Z variant (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
