Toyota Innova is one of the most popular MPVs in India. It is popular among buyers for its reliability, comfortable ride and low cost of maintenance. Toyota replaced Innova with much more premium looking Innova Crysta but, several examples of type 1 Innovas are still available in India. There are several first generation Toyota Innova MPVs that have lakh km on odometer and are working without any major problems. Many first generation Innova owners who do not wish to scrap the vehicle are now customising the exterior and interior to give the car a fresh look. Here we have one such Innova MPV that has been painted in a very unique Green paint job.
The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about the customisations that have been made to the Innova. The video does not show how the car looked when it had arrived at the workshop. The video also skips the part where they are seen working on the car. The finished product is what is seen in the video. The exterior of the Innova was restored and repainted and was given a makeover. The front grille, headlamps and bumper were removed.

The Innova was given a Type 4 makeover and that meant the front grille and the bumper were replaced. The headlamps are of the same shape but they are aftermarket projector LED units. There are LED fog lamps installed on the bumper too. The main attraction on this Toyota Innova is of course the paint job. It is a very different type of paint job. The vlogger mentions that it is a shade that is normally seen in Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback. They have used a premium quality paint and repainted the car in paint booth for a factory finish.
Coming to the side profile, the stock wheels on the Innova have been replaced with an aftermarket dual tone aftermarket alloy wheels. No other changes or modifications have been done on the side profile. As we move to the rear, the Innova gets type 4 style halogen tail lamps with chrome garnish on the boot with reflectors. There is a roof mounted spoiler installed on the car as well. Overall, the paint job and the conversion work done on this Innova looks very neat and unique. Along with the exteriors, interior on this Innova has also been modified. The car now comes with Ice Grey and Deep Green dual tone interiors. The owner of this Innova loves nature and the green colour and that is why he requested for a Green shade for the exterior and the interior.
The layout of the dashboard remains the same as stock. The upper portion of the dashboard is wrapped in Deep Green shade and the old seat covers have been replaced with custom fit green colour leatherette seat covers. The steering wheel is also wrapped in similar colour material. 7D floor mats have been installed and an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system that shows feed from the reverse parking camera can also be seen.
