The Innova is a slow-seller in Malaysia because of its frame and ladder chassis, poor weight to power ratio, and absence of a diesel variant unlike the preceding Toyota Zace. Diesels are often favoured in this segment because of improved fuel economy and high low-rpm torque. Moreover, the rise of reconditioned imported cars such as the Toyota Wish and Toyota Estima further slows down its sales. Nissan Grand Livina, Proton Exora and Perodua Alza have had better sales because of their monocoque body, which leads to better handling and lower asking price.
