Toyota Innova Touring Sport is an attempt by the company to make sure it replies to the very popular Tata Hexa that has emerged as its competitor
Toyota is at it again. The Japanese manufacturer last year launched the Innova Crysta in the country in petrol and diesel variants and is already a huge success. The sales charts are climbing, the number of vehicles on the roads are increasing and this makes manufacturer quite happy and wants repetitive success every year. The manufacturer will know be focusing on the premium car buyer as it does with the new Innova, but as we know, the MPV already has gone in the fleet market. This new variant will be for the premium buyer as this will be limited to an top-spec variant and will have more bells and whistles to make sure it goes against the likes of its competition which still offers more in terms of features. Details are out and let’s have a look at them.
