Behind the wheel of the Innova
The Bruneian team had a chance to test out the full performance and capability of the vehicle.
During our journey from the Toyota Showroom at Beribi to Temburongf, the Innova provides a raw performance and solid drive throughout the journey.
Moreover, along with the twist and turns of the tight roads from the city to Temburong, the responsive steering and handling are good and there was minimal body roll.
The eight-seater also boasts optimal road performance and road-holding capabilities throughout the drive. It was perfectly stable and planted to the ground which inspired confidence from behind the wheel.
Adding to that, the MPV also maintains its confidence and control over potholes and puddles around Kg Batang Duri.
However, it was on the long winding road of Jln Residency that we got to test out the true prowess of the engine.
Other than that, the wide range of advanced driver assistance and safety features on the Innova was a great help and certainly made our driving easier and safer.
Moreover, the cabin was also exceptionally quiet and tranquil with the muted road, wind, and traffic noise.
No matter where you sit, the eight-seater boasts premium comfort for both driver and passenger.
Nonetheless, the MPV is no doubt a good choice for long-distance traveling.
Overall, combining spaciousness, comfort and dynamic driving the Toyota Innova ticks all the right boxes for the ultimate family-friendly MPV.
