With improvements in the exterior, the Toyota Innova has become more beautiful, combined with the pragmatism that customers have used for more than 10 years in the Vietnamese market to regain the MPV throne that has been lost to cheap competitors. .
Referring to the MPV segment of less than 1 billion VND in Vietnam, the Toyota Innova is still the most iconic car with a long time dominating the segment since its launch in 2007. This model appears in every corner. big cities such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, … and become familiar with many generations of customers, especially the transport service business.
In the first 10 months of 2020, Toyota Innova has a consumption of 3,843 cars, and is lower than the king of MPV sales in Vietnam, Mitsubishi Xpander. Facing the rise of the opponent, the “big man” from Japan changed almost 180 degrees. The company chose Vietnam as the first country to introduce the Toyota Innova 2021, before big markets such as India, Thailand or Indonesia, which has never been seen in the Vietnamese car market.
Toyota Innova 2020 is an upgraded version of the life cycle. Therefore, the upgrades of this model focus on design and comfort. And whether these changes are worth the money to customers, any questions will be addressed in this article.
Less popular design
Toyota car design is always associated with the phrase “neutral”, “boring”, especially cars with a pragmatic orientation like Innova. The appearance of the Toyota Innova is difficult to conquer at first glance, but that has been fixed in the 2020 version.
It can be realized that the design of the Toyota Innova 2020 becomes more aggressive with a collapsed grille, inspired by the “brother” Hilux and Highlander. The headlights are connected to the grille via chrome plates, while the turn signal lights below are neatly trimmed, covered in a black plastic trim. The rear end is no different, except that the middle part of the taillights is painted glossy black.
The new tray is more beautiful
In addition, the 3 versions 2.0E, 2.0G and Venturer are equipped with new 2-tone wheels that are quite beautiful, but still keep the size of 16-inch wheels, not really balanced with the large design of the car. as 17-inch wheels on the 2.0V version. However, the Innova 2.0V’s wheel set retains the old design, one color tone, so it’s not as impressive as the wheels of the other 3 versions.
The first advantage, the key that makes many people choose the Toyota Innova is the spacious interior. Toyota Innova has a length x width x height of 4,735 x 1,830 x 1,795 mm, a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, so the interior is very spacious, from the legs, shoulders and head in all 3 rows. chair.
Comfort also comes from the wide and recessed seat back design, the occupants are supported by the back and shoulders, less movement when cornering.
Nice watch cluster with blue light and floating design. The center has a 4.2-inch TFT screen.
Toyota Innova is an MPV registered with 8 seats with a position in the middle of the third row. Even, this seating position has headrests. However, the 2.0V version I use has only 7 seats due to the business layout for the second row. The person in the third row of seats does not feel as cramped as the Mitsubishi Xpander, even though it’s 1m7 tall. Head to ceiling is wide thanks to the boxy cabin design.
Business seats are much more comfortable than the familiar 3-seater. The occupants will feel more private, especially when meeting a partner, or can turn around to talk to the person sitting in the next seat or 3rd row.
Many people think that the Toyota Innova is floating, but for me, the car is quite quiet, suitable for the need to regularly move in the city or go long distances.
Toyota has always been known for its deep cooling, and you’d be hard pressed to complain about it on the Innova 2021. All 3 rows of seats have their own air vents.
Sound insulation around and undercarriage Toyota Innova 2021 is good, not uncomfortable whether going in the city or at high speed.
Similar to other Toyota models, Innova protects passengers with 7 airbags, which is superior to many cars on the market.
Toyota Innova 2020 will be more perfect if you own a turbocharged or larger capacity engine, to reduce noise when you need to decisively accelerate. However, that will mean an increase in fuel consumption. That may be the reason why the Japanese automaker chooses the 2.0L engine for the current generation.
As mentioned above, the interior of the Toyota Innova 2.0V is quite shimmering when the interior lights are turned on at night, but it will be more perfect when the Japanese automaker adds a sunroof for the second row.
The A-pillar of the Toyota Innova is quite thick, limiting the ability to see even though there is a small glass window.
Although there are 3 driving modes, including Normal, Eco and Power, in reality there is not much difference between the modes.
The car does not have the function of turning off the mechanical headlights, so the driver cannot actively turn off the headlights in particular cases.
