Innova XE retails for PHP 1.375M

In case you're wondering, the Toyota Innova continues to exist in the local TMP lineup despite the introduction of the newer Zenix earlier in the year. The model continues to be offered to customers who still prefer a 7 or 8-seater MPV with ladder-frame construction and most importantly, a turbodiesel engine.

While Toyota Motor Philippines has not done any updates on the diesel-powered Innova, they have quietly added a new entry-level automatic transmission variant called the Innova XE.

Specs-wise, the XE variant follows the amount of features present on the base Innova J that comes with a 5-speed manual. Outside, the Innova XE comes with 16-inch steel wheels with full rim covers, and unlike the Innova E, the XE does not come with LED fog lights as standard.

Other features of the Innova XE include 3 airbags, a reverse camera, ABS with EBD, VSC, and Hill Start Assist.
