Autocar India is informing that Toyota plans to launch the next generation model of India’s most preferred MUV – Innova. The new generation model will carry an entirely new design, which will weed out the current flaws the car has, based upon customer’s feedback. I’m quoting an excerpt from ACI:

Customer feedback has indicated that owners are extremely satisfied with the existing Innova and want very little change. Toyota too is struggling to find ways to improve and hone its highly successful MPV. According to company sources, the next Innova will have some major styling tweaks and certain body panels will be reskinned. Engineers are working on ways to provide a more flexible seating configuration and to improve space in the third row. Making the Innova longer has been ruled out because customer feedback has indicated that owners do not want an MPV with larger dimensions. There is talk of an automatic option in the next Innova as well as a marginally more powerful engine

Needless to mention, i am happy with this news. Being a die hard Innova fan, i was pretty disappointed with the rumours which said that Innova will be phased out next year, but thanks to Toyota, Innova will have a new look in the near future.

don't tell me they are going to release with same size like yeti .
No, nothing like that is going to happen. Basically, It will be a makeover.

The Innova is doing exceptionally good in the Indian market, and Toyota will probably not perform any alteration, which may hamper its ever-increasing sales. I am assuming significant changes in the front as well as rear, along with interiors, while retaining the current body design in the new model.

I dont think Toyota will do anything of that sort.
As Jayadev said, soft body(i dont think it is the right word) is a safety feature and used intentionally by most of the foreign brands.

if they will shorten the length then how will they improve interiors flexibility / space?? [confused] toyota better doesnt touch anything except light facelift or else they can have sales going upside down..or hope they bring avanza and place it below innova!!

ya that safety hit innova owner very hard and company gets some non-stop money . good thing i never went for innova
Huh!!!
Softer body panels, steel rods inside - is it just be or does anyone understand how the two are linked to vehicle safety in the same sentence.

What? When did softer body panels become a safety feature?
Exactly, I don't quite understand where this is going guys :(

Read it carefully Umang, Toyota has said that it will NOT alter the length. Basically they have said that they wont increase the length to increase the legroom in the third row. That doesnt mean they will shorten the length.
