The test production of Fortuner has indeed started. The prototypes would be on roads soon for testing. Keep your eyes wide open is what I would say to Bangalore Bhpians for the time being.

Thumbs down New Innova looks cheap!!!

I hope they come up with better refined Diesel engine also more fuel efficient (less powered is fine) Petrol Engine (just 1-2 km more FE is more than enough to draw attention of many buyers).

Anyway this is too much of expectation from me because I am looking forward to buy new Innova in coming months.

Regards,

Ravi.

I had been to the Abudhabi intl Autoshow 08 yesterday and saw the new facelifted Innova . In my point of view, it would be the worst facelift ever done on any Toyota till date. It looks cheap and chinese !!! The rear looks like an aftermarket chinese rearlight. I would rather buy an old Innova and modify it then buy this ugly duckling. The snap which i have taken might look good,but in reality its the opposite.

Toyota is determined to give their worst looking MUVs to the Indian market!
The problem is there is never a problem with these uglies!

That looks like full of chrome and white... you will get better aftermarket chrome attachments.

If this is the facelifted innova, I see no reason why not to buy the current one at a discount. The chrome looks horrible anyway.


In today's scenario. GO WITH CASH, and watch the price of cars slide. Yesterday I negotiated a BMW 320d at 5 lacs off sticker price. Cash down.

NOBODY wants to hold inventory especially of this being December. Theprice I am getting for the 5 series....let's not even talk about it.



Cheers

There is a massive cut in the production and the workers have been given compulsory leave for x days in a week.
please excuse my knowledge on the abbreviations of auto industry, mind telling what is CKD?
price sounds ok to me, I was actually surprised when it was rumored to be around 10 Lakhs earlier.
A launch in 6 months is exactly in my plans, thanks for sharing the information.

[quote=Avin;1102519]what is CKD?
quote]
CKD = Completely Knocked Down
CBU = Completely Built Up

If vehicles manufactured outside India are brought in as CBU, they attract higher taxes whereas, the ones brought in via CKD route are subject to lower tax rates since they provide employment to local resources.

Essentially, via CKD route, all components for the vehicle are brought in pieces and then assembled.

Is it just me or is it the photos which makes the new model Innova look better? Apart from the puny wheels, I don't there's anything bad about the Innova.
