Radiating a more rugged and modern appeal, the all-new Toyota Innova Zenix, officially launched in Malaysia.

The third-gen MPV sports a new GA-C version of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, bestowing a new front-wheel drive system and monocoque body.

Fully-imported (CBU), the two variants (2.0 V - petrol, 2.0 HEV - hybrid) hailing from Indonesia tags at MYR 165,000 and MYR 202,000, respectively.

Prices (OTR, w/o insurance) include a standard five-year, unlimited mileage warranty, and a separate eight-year, unlimited mileage warranty for the hybrid’s battery pack.

Five exterior colours. Grey Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, Attitude Black Mica, Silver Metallic, and Avantgarde Bronze Metallic.

Note: Zenix in the moniker is to distinguish it as a separate model, an addition to the current local Innova range instead of a replacement.

Now denoted as Innova CG, the existing model still remains on sale with no change in pricings for the two variants offered (2.0 G, 2.0 X).

Rear View

Also with a shorter overhang (25 MM), the rear-end is neat and angular, exuding the most SUV-like appeal compared to the rest of the exterior.

Simple with straight contours, it sees a sportily-sculpted roof-edge spoiler, paired to a black lower bumper cladding. Matching the front are the chrome trim details.
