i saw the innova,the interiors are best ive seen in sub 10lac car,exteriors are generations ahead of the qualis,the engine options are exciting especially rhe vvti version,but please dont expect the car to havce the street presence of a suv its a muv designed to carry people in comfort but overall the innova feels very upmarket,i m a sure GM has started to have sleepless nights.

Just went to look at it in the showroom. Was quite impressed with the package. The base model rexine seats look almost like leather. However the showroom vehicle was showing signs of fiddle fatigue - heater knobs falling off.

What impressed me was the flexibility of the seats, back ones slide forward and backward , fold etc. Doors close with a nice thud- unless the Corolla. Put some nice alloys and it will look cool! Now for a drive!

whewwww the time has finaly come....its been about time...those japanese giving us toastor like qualis(which actually did well) ...it makes the innova look innovative. i think the car is value for money and may i see it being the carr of the yyear. apparently toyota india received 9000 oders within the launch of the innova...now now...we do have a happy indians touching perfection....and wanting it too...congrats toyota for being not just india no1 but the world no1.....( ya i did buy a camry recently....)
