The touring sport variant

The Toyota Innova 2.8 Touring Sport variant, comes with 215/65-R16 tires mounted on 10-spoke black alloy wheels with gloss black front grilles and rear tail light garnish plus a body kit to complete the exterior sporty look. It is a new level for school carpool, family outings, special events, for official business, law enforcement duties and as a daily commuter vehicle; this is what the Toyota Innova 2.8 Touring Sport 6AT can offer its seven passengers.
When inside, the well designed stow compartments kept the clutter clear with seat hooks mounted from the rear portion, of the front seats and 12-volt outlets, in the center of the dashboard and behind the center console box all came standard, while the seat comfort from leg, to head and elbow room on all seat row with seven headrests, are above average from vehicles, in its class. For added cargo space the third-row seat could be folded sideways on each side and the second row could recline, slide forward plus tumble for easy entry and exit to the third-row seats. The new black fabric interior during summer, cools faster compared to leather and the shade it was in, well it was, easy to maintain. Still inside the cabin, the instrument cluster besides the fuel gauge, engine temperature gauge, tachometer, speedometer, trip meters, warning and reminder lights, now has a gear indicator. The steering wheel with airbag, has control buttons for the tuner and phone connections. The dual air-conditioning with rotary type and rear slide switches, controls the cooling power manually, that can do its job well with air vents for all seat rows, while the 2-DIN CD / Tuner / MP3 / NAVI with remote control and aux input audio system wired to 6-speakers, could add to the patience of the passengers during traffic.
The rear wheel drive Toyota Innova 2.8 Touring Sport, was pushed by a 1GD-FTV 2755cc 4-inline DOHC (double overhead cam) 16 valve (direct injection four-stroke common rail) Turbo-charged with intercooler diesel engine, that could produce a maximum power of 171ps/3600rpm and a maximum torque of 360nm/1200-3400rpm, matched to a 6-speed gate type automatic transmission with sequential control. A drive mode select could be set in 3 ways, the normal, eco and this writer’s preferred setting, the power mode. To put the Toyota Innova 2.8 Touring Sport to a halt, front ventilated disc brakes and rear drum brakes with ABS (antilock brake system) could certainly do the job. You will have no worries driving the Toyota Innova 2.8 Touring Sport at extra-legal speeds, it was stable and handled well in corners, although it would lean, on tighter corners and Traction Control for this variant, was not available. Riding comfort was improved, that if you missed to stop before the hump, just go over and bouncing was decreased. During night driving, the halogen multi-reflector headlamps, plus the front fog lamps beamed the road ahead and provided good density.
Due to its popularity at any given time, you will see Toyota Innova vehicles on the road, in any day and nationwide.
