Spotting an extensively modified Toyota Innova is a tough job. We, however, came across one on the internet.
Toyota Innova is the uncrowned king of the Indian MPV space. It is widely loved by the Indian families and the cab aggregators as well. The space and comfort Innova offers along with the bulletproof diesel engine capable enough to survive a world war are the reason for Innova’s success. The car has been in the market for quite a long time now and has been recently updated with new BS-6 compliant engines. However, the Innova has never been a modifier’s delight. But today we came across a video uploaded by Wild Wheels Customs of a heavily modified Toyota Innova.
The red and black paint scheme helps the Innova gain loads of street presence and eyeballs.
The Toyota Innova in the video has been modified by 360 Motoring. It is a modification house based out of Kerala and is famous among the Indian car enthusiasts. The Innova here is finished in a shade of candy red, making it an attention magnet. Apart from the paint job, the car has been thoroughly de-chromed to paint those elements in black. This red and black contrasting paint scheme helps the car with a sporty and dynamic appeal.
Talking of the other changes on the car, the stock grille on the front is replaced by a spindle-shaped grille, as seen on the Lexus cars, and is also finished in piano black. The bumper is also a redesigned unit to accommodate the grille and new fog lamp housings with LED lights around them. There’s also a lip spoiler below the front bumper to complete the overall sporty attire of the car. To support the bling and drama, the stock headlamps are replaced with aftermarket units, which get projector setup and bi-functional LED DRLs. A lightbar is also mounted on the car’s roof to further accentuate the visibility at night.
On the sides, the OEM alloy wheels are replaced with aftermarket multi-spoke units and to give the car some stance, the skirts have also been used. The wheel arches are also flared to accommodate the wide tyres. The rear is done in a similar fashion like the front with a Lexus inspired body kit with redesigned bumper. The aftermarket tail lamps have a different glow pattern and for some extra bling at the rear, some extra LED lights have been placed in the bumper and the diffuser.
Any mechanical change made to extract more performance out of the car is not revealed in the video. We expect the owner would’ve kept the reliability of the engine intact by choosing not to fiddle around it. The Innova in the video was sold with a 2.5L 4-cylinder D-4D turbo-diesel engine, which produced 100 Bhp and 200 Nm as its peak power output. But on the whole, Kudos to 360 Motoring for coming up with a great mod job for a plain-jane MPV.
