Toyota has launched a limited edition of the Innova called the Innova Aero priced at Rs. 12.25 lakh and Rs. 12.30 lakh ex-showroom Delhi for two variants respectively – a seven-seater and an eight seater. Only 1,200 units of this limited-edition Toyota Innova Aero will be made and will be on sale till December, to make the most of the festive season.
The Toyota Innova Aero does not have any mechanical changes compared to the regular Innova, but it has a few cosmetic add ons that make it exclusive, and give it a sporty appeal. The Innova Aero is based on the Innova GX variant with a body kit.
The Toyota Innova GX is priced at Rs. 11.71 lakh and Rs. 11.76 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi for the seven-seater and eight seater respectively. Here’s what makes the Innova Aero different from the regular Innova GX:
The Innova Aero comes with a dual-toned front bumper spoiler, giving it a sporty, aerodynamic look. At the rear too the Aero gets a bumper spoiler, which differentiates it from the regular Innovas. There is a side skirt as well, which extends from below the door sills. It is also fitted with a roof-mounted spoiler at the rear and an exclusive “Aero” badge to add to the snob appeal.
There are no changes to the engine or drive train. The Innova is powered by a 2.5 litre diesel engine that puts out 101 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque with a five-speed manual transmission. The GX variant comes with ABS, but no airbags – and this limited edition Aero has the same features. The only difference between the two is the cosmetic add-ons.
But is it worth paying nearly Rs. 50,000 more than the regular Innova GX for these cosmetic add ons? Not really, unless you want that exclusivity. Toyota keeps launching limited edition variants to attract buyers from time to time, and keep the vehicle fresh in buyer’s minds, especially since competition has increased from the Mahindra XUV500 and the Maruti Ertiga.
