Normally, this would have been a bit of a challenge and was a big one here as we had to look at the Touring Sport in a different light. That’s because this car is a people mover. That means you get all the door storage, cup/bottle holders and useful spaces that one would expect in normal cars and some more.
Take, for example, cup holders. In a normal car you get maybe four or five depending on which part of the market the car is in. But because this Innova Touring Sport has three rows- you get nine and of these two are present on the rear tray tables while the ones attached to the dashboard double up as cooling units.
The boot with the third row folded offers you 983-litres which might not seem like a lot but thanks to the high roofline, it is easy to stack cargo at the back. This high roofline plays a big role even when the third row is down as you still get sufficient storage space to stack up your luggage despite the puny 300-litre capacity.
But what set the Touring Sport/Crysta aside are the little touches. Take for example the fact that most of these cup holders are wide enough to accommodate bottles of various sizes thus taking their total numbers to 22! The second row seats have a one touch tumble function and you can even move the front passenger seat from there thanks to latch on its right shoulder.
However, the ones that really caught my attention was the angle in which the climate control switches have been placed as well as little clips for holding the second rows seats belts when the seats are folded up. In the case of the former, it looks odd but once you start using the system, its spot-on ergonomics are quite visible.
