The bi-fuel, petrol-CNG powertrain of the Innova will most likely be a derivative of the 2TR-FE 2.7L Dual VVT-i petrol unit. It may have slightly lower output figures and will likely come with only a 5-speed MT option.

On Thursday, HT Auto also reported that the arrival of the Toyota's version of Vitara Brezza compact SUV has been delayed by a few months. While it was slated to be launched sometime in August this year, it may now arrive around festive season 2020. (Full details here)
