Here is my prediction>>

It won't affect Honda CRV sales (Not much anyways)

CRV is all about style, ergonomics and car like feel and I don't think you get that in Fortuner

Its a classic case of Toyota being able to command a price that it wants.

If you are going to compare it to an Innova and cry foul over the large price differential, the Captiva has the Optra`s Engine and tranny too.

Compared to the Captiva, I`d anyday go in for a Fortuner.

Its irritating that they didnt price it cheaper! But its true that its a not a pathetically expensive price either.

As usual Toyota will get away with it.

@ Vasu

I`m hoping that used Captiva prices come down, a 2 year old Captiva for 10 Lakh would be better than a new Fortuner with 1 Lakh off!

CRV is hardly selling after the price increase. So even if Fortuner takes awy 100 units from it. It will still make a difference.

There is no way the Fortuner can affect the sale of the CRV because the CRV has not sold anything at all in the last few months.

The Fortuner, on the other hand, has already picked up over 2000 bookings.

Have decided not to go for Fortuner - price though is listed as reason no. 3 but must be the serious cause as had it been a bit more cheaper ( e.g. 14-15 on road) may have still bought it.

1. Delivery schedule - too delayed ( dealer quoted 4 months- better then book in 2010).
2. Manual tranny- ready to wait for delayed delivery if I had an option for AT.
3. No VFM- as a bit disappointed with interiors & features list- will keep Safari for few more months till I compare it a Fortuner AT with Endeavour AT (4WD).
