Al-Futtaim Motors has launched the all-new 2016 Toyota Innova, which combines the essence of a Multi-purpose-vehicle (MPV) with the tough, emotional elements of an SUV and seating for up to eight passengers.
Designed with the concept of being a multi-performance vehicle thanks to the tough and sophisticated exterior, the enhanced interior and the new powerful and efficient powertrain for improved driving dynamics, the all-new Innova proudly stands out within the MPV segment. Aside from the redesigned exterior, the new Innova makes use of an improved and fortified frame, resulting in better handling and a more comfortable ride. With its strengthened frame and SUV-inspired styling, the Innova delivers a spacious and comfortable journey regardless of the road or weather conditions.
Saud Abbasi, Managing Director of Toyota at Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “The Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) market is one of great importance to Al-Futtaim Motors, driving a substantial part of our business. Last year, the Toyota LCV line-up recorded an average of 8 per cent growth, while the LCV segment itself saw growth of 4 per cent average.
This performance is influenced to a great extent by cars like the Innova, which has traditionally been extremely popular among Taxi operators and SMEs, as well as by individuals looking for a reliable and versatile vehicle that, like all other Toyota vehicles, delivers complete peace of mind. With the new generation, we are offering even more grades that will cater to an even wider audience, fulfilling any need or requirement.”
The new Toyota Innova is available either as a 7-seat model (with captain seats for the second row) or with an 8-seat (60/40 split, fold-down seats for the second row) configuration options. Ergonomic shapes and materials coupled with optimal seat firmness, provide second-row seat passengers with enhanced ride comfort.
The new Innova is available with a 2.7-litre 4-cylinder engine which produces 164 hp and 25.0 Kg-m of torque, mated to a 6-speed Super-intelligent Electronically Controlled Transmission that delivers enhanced fuel economy and driving performance. For added convenience and comfort, the Innova comes with a cruise control function and an all-new air-conditioning unit that helps maintain a cool interior – even in traffic on a hot day at maximum occupancy.
The all-new Innova is available in 6 exterior colours across all Al-Futtaim Motors showrooms, with prices starting conveniently at AED 92,900 for the SE grade, AED 98,900 for the SE+ grade, and AED 102,900 for the top of the line Limited grade.
