Bigger and more advanced than ever before, the all-new 2023 Toyota Innova which made its global debut in Indonesia six months ago will be launching in Thailand as early as the middle of July according to a report by Headlight Mag.

The TNGA-based Innova has been spotted in the Kingdom back in March and sources close to the Thai automotive publication revealed that Toyota Motor Thailand is preparing to launch the third-gen 7-seater by July 2023.

Just like the Veloz, the Thai-spec Innova is expected to be fully imported from Indonesia. In the archipelago, it is offered with two Dynamic Force engines – a 2.0-litre M20A-FKS petrol engine (174 PS/205 Nm) and a 2.0-litre M20A-FXS petrol-hybrid unit that combines the petrol engine (152 PS/187 Nm) with an electric motor (113 PS/206 Nm).

Built on the TNGA-C platform like the Toyota Voxy and Toyota Corolla Cross, the all-new Innova is built on a monocoque chassis which is a far cry from its predecessors which were built on the ladder-frame IMV platform just like the Hilux and Fortuner.

Hence, the all-new Innova is also front-wheel drive (FWD) as opposed to rear-wheel drive (RWD) like its predecessors. The Innova also has roots that trace back all the way to the Toyota Kijang which was considered Indonesia’s national car.

Besides a new platform and the addition of a hybrid, the all-new Innova also extends its premium feel by offering a panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument cluster, an electric parking brake (EPB), and the Toyota Safety Sense suite of ADAS on higher variants, at least in Indonesia.

As for Malaysia, the all-new Innova has been recently spotted on a car transporter lightly disguised. Unlike the outgoing Innova which was locally assembled (CKD), these units could be fully imported CBUs

However, you can expect the all-new Innova to be significantly more expensive than the outgoing generation. We expect prices for the all-new Innova to hover around the RM 150,000 mark. Meanwhile, the outgoing Innova is still on sale in Malaysia with two variants offered:

  • 2.0 G AT – RM 133,880
  • 2.0 X AT – RM 141,880
