Toyota launches Innova Touring Sport in India

Toyota is riding on the success of extremely popular Innova Crysta in India. Toyota has introduced new, higher-end variants of the Innova Crysta known as Touring Sport. The new variants are launched to celebrate the first anniversary of the vehicle and are available with both petrol and diesel variants. The Crysta Touring Sport is much more premium than the regular Crysta and is only available in the 7-seat variant.

The price starts from Rs. 17.79 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs. 18.91 lakh for the diesel version (ex-showroom, Delhi prices.). The MPV gets major cosmetic updates with the new launch. There is an eye-catchy sporty red shade on offer with the new variants. The grille at the front gets black garnish instead of the chrome. Same happens with the tailgate garnish.

The MPV also gets a body kit and wheel arch accents making it look more rugged. The body cladding accents now get chrome garnish making it look little more premium. The chrome is also seen on the parts on the front bumper. At the rear, the Touring Sport gets a larger roof-mounted spoiler.

The Touring Sport also gets the same 17-inch alloy wheels. Earlier, Toyota launched the top-end of Innova Crysta with 17-inch alloy wheels but it lacked comfort and a lot of people complained about the ride quality. Toyota switched back to the 16-inch wheels. The alloys get a black matte finish that looks contrasting to the red shade. On the inside, the dashboard of the Innova gets a red accent. Everything else remains the same.
