Toyota launched the all-new Innova Hycross in the Indian market earlier this month. The MPV is entirely different from the previous generation of Innova that was available to us. It uses a new platform, offers more features, and also comes with a more fuel-efficient strong hybrid petrol engine. However, there are still a large number of people who like the older version and are still using it without any issues. One of the common type of modification that we have been seeing in older Innova MPVs in installing aftermarket kits. Here we have one such video where a type 2 Innova has been modified to look like type 4 with an imported Lexus kit.
The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. In this video, the owner of a type 2 Innova drops the car at the workshop for modification work. The exterior and the interior of the MPV was looking decent but, it had minor dents and scratches on some of the panels. The dashboard of the Innova was not aligned and the seats were starting to look old. The owner opted for a type to type 4 conversion job with a Lexus body kit. Usually, Autorounders uses a custom-made Lexus kit that they have developed inhouse.

They also use imported kits as per customer’s requirements. In this case, the owner was confused between these two kits and finally went with the imported one. The kit used on this Innova is actually different from the other imported units that we have seen so far. The team started working on the conversion job and removed the front grille, headlamps, bonnet, fenders, front and rear bumpers. Once this was done, they marked all the dents and fixed them before removing the original paint completely.
Once the dents were all fixed, a thin coat of putty was applied and excess putty was removed using a sander. The original paint was completely sanded off. The new fender and bonnet were also installed on the car.
After a quick wash and clean-up, a coat of primer was applied on the whole car. Then the car was taken to the paint booth where premium quality paint was applied on the car. The owner opted for deep black shade which was looking extremely good on it. The new set of bumpers were all painted in the same shade. A clear coat was also applied to achieve the glossy finish.
The headlamps on this Innova are now aftermarket LED projectors with integrated LED DRLs in it. The car also comes with a new bumper with another set of dual-function DRLs and LED fog lamps in it. The car gets aftermarket alloy wheels and the tail lamps are now all LEDs.
The interior on this Innova has also been customised. It is now finished in all black theme with red inserts for a sporty look. The car gets reverse parking sensors, parking camera, Seude material on the custom seat covers, black roof liner, aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system and so on. The Innova was looks premium and sporty after modification.
