Currently, the MPV is offered in seven as well as eight seat layout and packs in plethora of features such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice commands, TFT screen for MID, ambient lighting etc. On the safety front, the new Innova gets prominent bits such as multiple airbags, ABS, EBD, VSC (Vehicle stability Control) and HAC (Hill-Assist Control) etc. Also Read – Toyota Fortuner 2018 – All Details
