Toyota was "famous" for drum brakes on its high end Fortuner as well. This doesn't surprise me at all. Typical Toyota.

The interiors look really classy and tempting! Might have considered it an alternative had it been launched slightly earlier, but am very happy with my new-age XUV for now. Those rear tail-lamps do look obnoxious compared to the striking front-end.

Just enquired about the new Innova, they are asking for 1 lakhs as booking amount which they will collect officially from Monday.

The sales executive told the on road price will be from 16 to 22 lakhs and 25 lakhs for the ZX automatic. That is his estimate and he specifically told they haven't got any official price list yet.

Asked whether he felt any reduction in interior dimension, but told me that he felt the interior to be as spacious as the old one, I wasn't expecting him to confess even if the new one is short of interior space.

These guys are well mannered, they treat you well and have addressed to all my doubts. The dealer I'm talking about is Nippon Thrissur, Kerala.

We will be going for the VX variant, the outgoing model is priced 19.68 lakhs on-road Thrissur.

Its a bit frustrating if they're not launching the A/Ts with an 8 seater option. This is the customer paying the top most dollar for your flagship variant. Let him choose how many people he wants to seat in your car.

On a separate note, does anyone know when South Mumbai dealers (Shinrai etc) are getting an actual demo car that one can see?

PS: When is the official T-BHP review for the Innova coming out? Can't wait to read that.

Ok guys. I got to experience the new Innova but couldn't drive it.

Here is what I feel:

1) Is the new Innova Crysta more spacious than my current Innova - NO

2) Did the new Innova Crysta feel less spacious than my current Innova - NO

3) All parameters (except driving experience) considered which car would I prefer from a driver seat perspective: Current Innova

4) All parameters (except ride and AC efficacy) considered which car would I prefer from a middle seat perspective: Innova Crysta

5) All parameters considered (except ride and AC efficacy) which car would I prefer from a third row perspective - 50-50 but I'd prefer the INNOVA CRYSTA!

If the new car is short on space - I didn't feel it. The seats are much better, the ambiance light years ahead.

Am I going to exchange it with my current Innova - Absolutely NO!
The Fortuner gets the boot!

PS: this was all experienced on a stationary vehicle. My views may get changed on a moving one. I do realize my views could be clouded by the enthusiasm of getting to experience one, but I did try to evaluate from a perspective buyer's viewpoint.

PPS: I am almost 6ft and proudly wear a nice high turban

I've heard the GX AT will come with 8 seats. If not then that's a real bummer and I'll probably have to rethink my booking as I am very clear I only want an 8 seater. I can wait to buy a manual few years down but the primary motivation is AT. Cannot compromise on 8 seats however.

It will be really awesome if they launch a ZX AT with 8 seats. I wonder if we can get the middle row seats retrofitted from the dealer itself on the ZX. It didn't matter in the current generation that the ZX didn't have 8 seats but it does matter a lot on this one. Hope someone at Toyota is listening!

If you don't mind Sir, could you please elaborate why? Any specific parameters where the Innova Crysta loses out?

Can the position of the middle row seat be adjusted?

Thanks

GX- AT is with both options

I don't think there will be the demand of 8 seaters in higher Z version by my personal experience & then manufacturer has to draw a line somewhere on number of variants which already may be highest for any one model in case of Innova .

Overdrive review is out.

Excerpts:

Quote:
The 2.4-litre 2GD-FTV is a lot more refined compared to its 2.5-litre predecessor and power delivery is more linear thanks to reduced turbo lag. There is a strong surge after 2,500rpm and power is produced all the way until 4,000rpm. While we couldnít test if the Crysta is quicker but it definitely felt like it. The 5-speed manual transmission has well-spaced ratios and makes good use of the torque on offer. Gearshifts however could have been smoother. The throws are much shorter and more car like now, a solid improvement. Gear lever vibration has reduced but it very much exists.

The 2.8-litre 1GD-FTV meanwhile felt slightly more refined and displayed lower NVH levels. This engine gets added power and torque but didnít feel noticeably quicker. One of the reasons being the 6-speed automatic. It isnít as responsive as the 5-speed manual transmission. Roll-on performance, however, felt quicker but we can only confirm this after a road test. The automatic even gets sequential manual shifts but paddle shifters are not going to be offered. The transmission also gets an S mode that basically moves shift points to much higher up the rev range.

Saw more Innovas being delivered at the Nandi Toyota - Garvebpalaya. All were version "Z". They had 17" tyres on them. They were taken directly to the respective warehouse. They were in a hurry to complete the task before the office opened up.

The front looks good, back looks similar to one of the iterations of Highlander. Two in my circle of friends booked already. Looks like Toyota got another winner here with a refreshing interior and less noisy car

I'm miffed by this statement in ACI review. There is hardly any turbolag in the outgoing Innova!

So true. These reporters are not telling the true story. The previous Innova didn't have any turbo lag, the delivery is so linear that many people were shocked to find that it had a turbo.
I found the dashboard plastic to be hard at some places which overdrive reported to be excellent.
He didn't share a single negative point. That's what miffed me the most.
