Nowadays being on the road means either of two things: You’re stuck in traffic in your daily commute or you’re on a long road trip for a weekend getaway. Either way, you’d want to be productive or luxuriating in space and comfort. Or both.

Which means an interior that gives you the best of both words is absolutely heaven-sent. And this is precisely the design brief of the Foton Toano Limousine.

A fresh and pimped out mover

Foton’s XL-sized Toano van has served as hotel shuttles, airport transport services, and even Sunday cars for big families. But how about as a high-end executive limousine? That seems to have been the idea which prompted Foton to turn the standard 15-seat Toano van into a 10-seater with more space, luxury, and convenience features.

Height is might

Powered by Foton Blue Energy technology, the Toano Limousine delivers impressive performance from its 160hp Euro 4-compliant 2.8-liter Cummins diesel engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission.

Being one of the tallest in its class, the Toano Limousine stands nearly six feet in interior height from floor to ceiling. It showcases generous dimensions, measuring 5,990mm in length, 2,000mm in width, and 2,415mm in height—ideal for sports teams, top executives, VIPs, and even extended families.

Getting in—and feeling out (of this world)

The interior is where things get really cool. It has been updated with more tech, more convenience features, and a fresher look. The blue LED pinlights around the nautically themed interiors add plentiful lighting options depending on the mood of the passengers. It boasts of laminated wood flooring, sunshade van curtains, plus an automatic electronic footboard for easier ingress and egress. It is also equipped with a heater, a clock and comfort meter, additional accessory power outlets, cup holders, and an electronic kettle.

The Toano Limousine’s seating arrangements has a ten-passenger setup with three seats in front (including the driver), two captain chairs each for both second and third rows, and a back row with a bench-type seat for three. These seats are covered in leather and can be reclined, having power adjustment features for height, back, and seat angle for both driver and passengers.

Safe and secure travels

The Toano Limousine adds a litany of high-tech safety and security gear including head lamp levelizers, adjustable meter gauge backlight illumination, power sideview mirrors, remote control power windows, front and rear fog lamps, LED side mirror, signal lights, dual front airbags, and ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. A 4-probe reverse sensor and camera come standard for easier reversing.

Also a big refresh for the Toano Limousine is its innovative infotainment system. Aside from the standard radio, CD player, and audio inputs, the Toano Limo is also pimped up with a sound system that features a surrounding amplifier along with a dedicated subwoofer, all of which is balanced out with specialized interior wall noise reduction insulation. Just imagine how thrilling your ride can be with your cabin resonating in high-fidelity audio while watching your favorite flick on a premium 23-inch LED TV.

The Toano Limousine delivers all the hallmarks of the modern pimped-up van: a powerful drivetrain, spacious and luxurious interiors, advanced active safety features, full entertainment system, and, of course, home-like comfort.

The Toano Limousine comes in Phantom Black, Aurora White, Metallic Silver, and Amber Bronze. It retails for P2,580,000.
