I hope they do give the same interiors and dont slash them as part of cost-cutting. This new interior could be the icing on the cake as far as the new GV is concerned!

now the question remains, will it be able to sustain the blow of the mighty Fortuner??!!

Spot on - for most ppl it should be a straight fight between the Fortuner and GV - IMO the target audience for CRV is more urban, Ford Endeavour would also be there in the mix - however personally speaking Im not impressed with the facelift at all.

Would like to see if anyone is planning to test drive the new GV yet.

Why the hell are they putting "new front grill" in the advertisement? Is it seriously a selling point? Are we going to be bowled over by it? I found this very lame.

Car looks good from outside, will go check interior quality and fit and finish soon.

It would be great if one of the existing GV owners (samurai, sudev) can comment on the quality of interiors of new GV.

I haven't seen the new one, and probably won't have a chance for a long time since I live away from the cities.

Are you sure it was beige interiors? Pics on the website show black/dark gray interiors. Even the story in the ACI reports that the interior is unchanged.
