So remember, this is just the Innova Touring Sport and not Innova Crysta Touring Sport. There is no ‘Crysta’ here, because Toyota wants to distinguish this from the Crysta. In Toyota’s words, it is “Designed to Distinguish”. Launched at Rs 17.79 lakh ex-Delhi.
A similar one is called the ‘Venturer’ in the Indonesian market. As the name suggests, the Touring Sport is all about making the Innova look sporty. To begin with, there are two new colors, Wildfire Red and White Pearl Crystal Shine. We’re looking at the Wildfire Red, which is a glossy metallic red. The grille has been made gloss black and the headlamps have been smoked. The vehicle gets body cladding throughout, including the bumpers, with a touch of chrome. In fact, i personally think the chrome is a bit too much on the front fascia.
The 16-inch alloy wheels get a matte black finish. The new Innova was originally launched with 17-inch wheels, but due to the complaints of ride quality and tire damage from the customers, Toyota has downsized them to 16-inch ones shod with chunkier tires.
Interiors are all-black and gets a red contrast stitching on the seats, steering wheel and on the console box. The dashboard gets a red wood pattern, which goes really well with the wildfire red color. Front doors get a piano black inserts.
For the rear doors, you get a gloss black wood with alcantara combination. Rest of the equipments are the same, you get ambient lighting, touchscreen infotainment system and a big list of features that Innova Crysta carries. Last but not the least, the gauges are red illuminated.
The Touring Sport comes only as a 7-Seater, with captain seats for the second row. There are no mechanical changes, you have 2.7 litre petrol in manual and AT, 2.4 litre diesel in manual and a 2.8 litre diesel automatic options to choose from.
