New features aboard the new new Innova include dark grey dual tone alloys, wood finish steering wheel, new design for leather seats, and oak interior colour. Apart from this, airbags now come as standard across all variants.
Toyota India says, the price hike is not only due to the addition of new features. It is also because of the roll-back of cut in excise duty for MPVs. The new price is inclusive of the hike in excise duty. Basically, what Toyota is calling the 2015 Innova, is the same as last year, only with a higher price tag.
