Let’s kick off with the Innova 2.0X, an added variant in the Innova line-up. Toyota’s compact MPV has a crossover styling and comes with a spacious interior and plenty of amenities. With the Innova 2.0X, UMWT is upgrading the MPV to an even more premium image with added features.
In a nutshell, the equipment and features of the Innova 2.0X are comparable to those of the Innova 2.0G but there are also additional exclusive items to distinguish it as the top variant. The exclusive items include LED lights, premium combination leather package, 6-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat, Captain’s seats for the second row, and larger wheels.
The Innova line-up is recognized with a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating for these safety features: 7 SRS airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), as well as ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist.
Fortune smiles on the 2017 Fortuner range
The Toyota Fortuner range has been expanded with the addition of two new diesel variants, the Fortuner 2.4 VRZ 4×4 and Fortuner 2.4 VRZ 4×2. Both variants offer customers more choices and target a wider spectrum of customers. The two new variants are positioned between the top-of-the-line Fortuner 2.7 SRZ 4×4 and the Fortuner 2.4 4×4. Meantime, the new Fortuner variants continue to carry the 2.4-liter turbo-diesel engine.
In looks, the 2017 Fortuner variants maintain the design theme of ‘Luxury & Prestigious’ which combines a tough image with refined and more refined styling, highlighted by Bi-LED projector headlights and LED-type foglights. Inside, the SUV offers comfortable accommodation in the 3-row, 7-seater cabin. Like the Fortuner 2.7 SRZ 4×4, the two new Fortuner VRZ variants come with additional equipment, including Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), 7 SRS Airbags, Automatic air-conditioning, Leather seats, and a Power tailgate.
As for new 4×4 features, the Fortuner 2.7 SRZ 4×4 and Fortuner 2.4 VRZ 4×4 variants now come with Downhill Assist Control (DAC). All variants are now updated with rear disc brakes.
The Toyota Hilux receives a host enhancements to better occupants’ convenience and comfort. Among the added items are cruise control, automatic air-conditioning, USB charging ports and an additional rear vent.
In the Hilux 2.8G and 2.4G AT variants, the equipment list comprise Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) and Active Traction Control (A-TRC). VSC has now also been added to the Hilux 2.4G with manual transmission, along with HAC and A-TRC. The Hilux 2.8G also comes with Downhill Assist Control (DAC) to make driving down a steep slope easier and safer. Safety has been stepped up further by expanding the availability of 7 airbags to the 2.4G AT variant as well.
