Earlier in the day, we confirmed that Toyota has stopped production of the current generation Innova. Now, our sources have confirmed that majority of the Toyota dealerships have already run out of stocks of the top-end ZX and VX trims.
The dealer sources confirm that the supply of the ZX trim stopped a while ago and few weeks back even the VX trim stopped reaching the dealerships. Only the G and GX variants are available at the moment, in seven-seat and eight-seat configuration.
All the variants of the Toyota Innova get the same engine 2.5-litre diesel engine producing 101bhp and 200Nm of torque, coupled with the five-speed manual powering the rear wheels. The main difference in the variants is based on the features. The top-end ZX variants and the one below, the VX, had the most number of features. In G and GX trim in comparison get less equipment.
The GX only has a driver airbag and misses out on things like rear parking sensor and camera, driver armrest, fog lamps, alloy wheels, touch-screen display music system and steering mounted audio control. Many of these, however, can be fitted as aftermarket accessories at the dealership.
The G and GX variants have been preferred by the fleet market, which is why the sales have continued for the longest time compared to the higher-spec versions. People looking to buy the seven-seater MUV for personal use, might want to wait for the next-generation Innova Crysta which was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016.
