Car Innova
Company Toyota
Class Multi Utility Vehicle(MUV)


The best part about the new Innova is that it looks nothing like a van unlike before. It is leaner and gets contemporary treatment. The front-end in particular steals the limelight as it gets the frame-less grille followed by multiple slats. At the back-end there is a prominent integrated spoiler atop and boomerang shaped wrap around tail lamp. Good part is that despite the lean look, the MUV gets key elements that retain the muscularity.
