Toyota Motor Philippines sets the stage for the new Year 2010 as they introduce a tougher version of the country's best-selling commercial vehicle, the Innova Sport Runner. All the passenger car-like comfort offered by the Toyota Innova is packed inside this new variant, with an improved sportier exterior.

The Innova SR features new overfenders, side skirts, rear spoiler, new front fog lamp design, 15" alloy wheels in a wider 225 / 55 R15 tires, Sport Runner badge and exclusive black and bronze exterior colors. It will be available in 2.5-liter diesel automatic and manual transmissions at Php 1,064,000 and Php 999,000 respectively.

"The Sport Runner is a fresh addition to the Innova line-up" says Mr. Raymond Rodriguez, Toyota Motors Philippines First Vice President for Vehicle Sales. "While the Innova has been consistently performing very well since its 2005 introduction, averaging 900 units per month in sales, we understand that there are customers who are also looking for a tougher or sportier look that will compliment the Innova's driving performance and riding comfort. We are confident that this new variant will further solidify the Innova's position as the best-selling MPV, and will contribute to TMP's overall sales leadership."

The Innova Sport Runner will be available in any of Toyota 27 outlets nationwide this month.
