How much does it cost to own a Toyota Innova?

If you plan to buy a Toyota Innova for you and your family, the costs don’t stop at just buying it in a dealership. Car ownership also includes the maintenance costs from preventive maintenance services (PMS) to keep your Innova in good condition at all times.

TMP offers the 2021 Innova with one engine option only. Unlike before, TMP decided to offer the 2021 Innova with a 2.8-liter diesel engine across all variants. Pricing for the entry-level J variant is at Php 1,168,000 and goes up to Php 1,739,000 for the top-spec V trim.

Maintenance costs for Parts and Labor

Generally, cars with a diesel engine are cheaper to maintain than those with a gasoline engine due to lesser components such as spark plugs. As such, you could potentially save more on maintenance costs if you opt for the diesel variants of the Innova. 

However, just be more mindful on the road as repair due to huge damages from accidents is generally more expensive in a diesel engine than a gasoline engine. A diesel engine is made up of stronger and heavier materials that give it its powerful low-end torque, hence the parts are generally more expensive.

The Innova remains to be a top choice among Filipino families

For the first 1,000-km and 5,000-km, the PMS costs range from Php 1,900 to Php 2,300 each mileage. The costs are relatively light in the first months of ownership as minor maintenance services will be conducted such as oil replacement.

Once you reach the 10,000-km mileage, expect to pay around Php 3,800 to Php 5,500, almost twice as compared to the first two maintenance costs. Both the 15,000 and 25,000 km marks will require you to prepare from Php 3,000 to Php 6,200.

The peak cost for your first year of owning a Toyota Innova is at the 20,000-km mark with a price that ranges from Php 7,000 to Php 8,700. Overall, the first year of owning a daily drive Innova will cost you around Php 20,600 to Php 31,200, depending on the condition of your unit.
