One of the successful vehicles to run on the Indian road is the Toyota Innova. It’s been a while that it is among the favourite cars or rather MPVs for Indian customers. Why not, it is not a surprise as the Toyota Innova offers the perfect ride comfort. Also, it is the prime choice of weapon for someone going on long tours.
So, for you to know Toyota Innova Crysta with its potent engine and driving dynamics is in its 2nd generation here in India. But, now comes a piece of sad news from Toyota as they have withdrawn the Touring Sport variant of India’s beloved MPV line-up.
Toyota Innova Touring Sport | What the MPV Had on Offer?
The Touring Sport Innova sat on the very top of the variant list and was based on the ZX variant. Touring Sport was available with two colours options, Red and White. Well, it was the Red that had a stunning appeal.
- The Toyota Innova Touring Sport used to cost approx 70,000 over the conventional variant. Fun Fact: There were no changes under the hood.
- That said, the changes included a re-designed front and rear bumper, some updates on the inside and that’s about it. But be it anything, the Touring Sport variant of the Innova Crysta was a head-turner.
- On the inside, Toyota Innova Touring Sport boasted of faux wood trim on the dash and Red stitching on the steering wheel.
- The instrument cluster also had Red backlit dials.

Under the hood, the Toyota Innova Crysta boasted of the same engine as its regular variants. The petrol one is a 2.7-litre naturally aspirated motor that produces 163hp of max power and 245Nm of peak torque. It was mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed AT was also an option.
