On Thursday, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) launched a new, sporty variant of its multi-purpose vehicle Innova. Called the Innova Touring Sport, it is priced Rs 17.79 lakh for petrol manual, Rs 18.91 lakh for diesel manual, Rs 20.84 lakh for petrol automatic and Rs 22.15 lakh for diesel automatic. “For the first time on the brand Innova, we are offering a dynamic and sporty avatar. As an MPV with a SUV-like styling, the new Innova Touring Sport is a blend of dynamic exterior design, sporty interiors along with superior safety and performance features,” the company said in a statement.
The new car gets an all-black front grille, giving it a distinct appearance, and with the smoked chrome headlamps and front bumper spoiler, it adds to the style quotient of the car. There are red stitches on the seats and console box, red-illumination combimeter, and a red wood pattern on the instrument panel. The Innova Touring Sport will be available in two colours—the new wildfire red which is exclusive, and the existing white pearl crystal shine. The engines—2.8-litre diesel, 2.4-litre diesel and 2.7-litre petrol—remain the same.
