Toyota MPV match: Avanza vs. Innova

Toyota MPV match: Avanza vs. Innova

If you think a sedan is too small for your family and an SUV is out of your price range, an MPV may be the best option for your needs. Because of the functional space that it provides, a multi-purpose vehicle is frequently used as a family car.

Toyota’s top contender in the MPV segment is the Innova, which is proudly made at Toyota Motor Philippines’ manufacturing facility in Santa Rosa, Laguna. Since its Philippine debut in 2005, the Innova has undergone a lot of development and modification.

Under the Innova’s hood is a 2.8-liter diesel engine that churns out a maximum power output of 174ps at 3,400 rpm and a maximum torque of 360Nm from 1,200 to 3,400rpm. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. You can choose between two drive modes: Eco and Power.

If the Innova is too pricey for your budget, an alternative for this is the Toyota Avanza, which is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power output of 104ps at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 136Nm at 4,200rpm. The Avanza gets a four-speed automatic transmission.

Both MPVs have spacious interiors, making them excellent choices for family transportation. Fabric seats are standard on the Innova and the Avanza. The rear seats of both vehicles are adjustable to increase the cargo capacity, as MPVs generally provide vast luggage space.

For a bolder and sportier appearance, Toyota has revised the Innova’s exterior look with a new dynamic front grille and striking side turn signal lamps. The Innova also comes with LED headlamps, LED front fog lamps, and daytime running lights for improved visibility. Meanwhile, the Avanza is designed with a Smoke Chrome front grille and LED projector type headlamps.

The Innova is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, while the Avanza gets 15-inch alloy wheels.

When it comes to safety features, the Avanza is equipped with supplemental restraint system (SRS) airbags for the driver and the front passenger, while the Innova has SRS airbags for the driver, the driver’s knees, front passenger, and on the side and curtain. Both MPVs come with three-point emergency locking retractor (ELR) seatbelts and anti-lock brake system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD). The Innova is also equipped with additional safety features such as vehicle stability control (VSC), hill-start assist control, reverse camera, and clearance and back sonars.

Both MPVs maintain their family-friendly reputation by including child restraint system features like Isofix and tether anchors. The Innova and the Avanza also use the Toyota Vehicle Security System (TVSS) to keep the vehicles safe from burglars.

We listed down the specifications of the two Toyota MPVs on the chart below so you can see for yourself which one better fits your needs and lifestyle.
