The Toyota Innova (Japanese: トヨタ・イノーバ, Toyota Inōba) is a compact MPV manufactured by the Japanese automaker Toyota. It is first produced in Indonesia under supervision by Toyota Astra Motor since 2004 and has been manufactured in other countries as well. As with the Kijang, which it replaced, the Innova is produced and first marketed in 2004 in Indonesia. The Innova has a body-on-frame chassis constructed from Toyota’s IMV platform together with the Hilux pickup truck and the Fortuner SUV. Its official name in Indonesia is Toyota Kijang Innova, while for other countries it is called “Innova” or “Innova Crysta”. The name “Innova” comes from the English word innovation.
The Innova was also introduced as a replacement for both the Kijang as well as its rebadged derivatives in foreign markets, including the Qualis in India, the Unser in Malaysia, the Revo in the Philippines, and the Zace in Vietnam. The Innova is also available in Thailand, Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Jamaica and Argentina.
