Innova Zenix comes with non hybrid, hybrid variants
After a relatively quiet first half of the year, Toyota Motor Philippines has finally launched the all-new Innova Zenix – the brand's first new model in the country for 2023.
The Innova Zenix has been fully redesigned and reengineered from the ground up, transitioning from a body-on-frame structure to the new TNGA-C unibody platform. It is joining the Toyota PH lineup as a separate model, as TMP will continue to sell the second-generation Innova.
With the switch from a ladder frame to unibody construction, the all-new Innova Zenix also gets a front-wheel-drive layout, which opens up more interior space inside for both passengers and cargo.
Under the hood, the all-new Innova Zenix comes with two Dynamic Force engine options - a 2.0-liter non-hybrid with 174 PS at 6600 rpm and 205 Nm of torque from 4,500 to 4,900 rpm plus a 2.0-liter hybrid powerplant that generates a combined 186 PS and 206 Nm of torque from the electric motor. Both engines are paired to a CVT transmission, while the hybrid has an additional Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) battery under the front seats.
Inside, the all-new Innova Zenix has seating for seven – two in front, two in the second row, and three in the third row. There's a second-row captain seat for the base V variant, and a slide, power recline, and power ottoman seats for the top-spec Innova Zenix Q.
It has a 10.1-inch infotainment display that has both Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity and is paired with a 6-speaker sound system. Also, it has a reverse camera for the V variant and a Panoramic View Monitor for the top-spec Q hybrid.
In terms of safety, the all-new Innova Zenix has ABS w/ EBD, Stability Control, and Hill Start Assist Control. It's also equipped with as many as 6 airbags for the Q Hybrid, and features Toyota Safety Sense w/ Pre-Collision System, Auto High Beam, Lane Tracing Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
Toyota says the all-new Innova Zenix comes in six colors: Dark Steel Mica (Q Hybrid CVT), Blackish Brown Mica (Q Hybrid CVT), Attitude Black Mica (V CVT), Gray Metallic (V CVT), Silver Metallic (V CVT) and Platinum White Pearl Mica (Q Hybrid CVT and V CVT for additional PHP 15,000).
Pricing of the all-new Innova Zenix is as follows:
2024 Toyota Innova Zenix 2.0 V CVT – PHP 1,670,000
2024 Innova Zenix 2.0 Q Hybrid CVT – PHP 1,953,000
