well... interestingly innova/corolla/fortuner are all built on the same platform, but the price that toyota is gonna put for the SUV is 4-5L more than corrola... dont think very different engines or features in it either...

corolla is the only all new vehicle in this however.

Looks better than the present version.
I had also read in some earlier posts about the possible launch of a new MPV code named NVX, this is supposed to be similar to Avanza. Would this facelift be the same as launch of NVX or is that expected to be a separate release later on (if at all)?

I wonder what market Toyota is targeting by supposedly pricing the new Corolla in the 1.3 to 1.5 million rupee segment?.The Corolla is an economy car , built to a price and sold as one, world over. I always wonder about Toyota's strategy in the Indian car market. They sell more than 36,000 Corollas in neighboring Pakistan in a calender automotive year.That means they offer cheaper variants. And they also offer an economy box from the Daihatsu stable too for consumers there.What gives over here?.

Nope, what that means is that Pakistan barely has local car production, most of those Corollas are imported and due to both these factors, there isn't the import tax structure you see in India.

Talking about the new corolla a local showroom salesperson mentioned that it would be priced upwards of 14 Lacs since they would not be introducing the low end variants but only H2 and above

Why 14 lakhs. Do they want to compete with Accord. I am not sure if Toyota would be crazy to price it at that. Perhaps a 5-10% increase over existing models would be good enough. On the other hand, Toyota is getting volumes from Innova, and the luxury car market is still hot (unlike the compact segment).
