You're not ignorant. The Diesel Innova is superior to the DICOR technically and being a Toyota it would be superior in design and mechanics as well.

4. I cant see myself driving a van, however perfect it may be.

5. 3 litre engine, 30 kgnm of torque. There is no substitute for Cubic Capacity.

Being a Tata vehicle I suppose its a lot easier to modify in future, too - cant see anyone fooling around with the state of perfection in the Toyotas.

and then maybe I like taking chances?

Default Buy Innova: Get 1200 lts of gas free.

Looks like Toyota is all out to arrest the drop in sales of the Innova. Autocar says Innova sales dropped from 3670 units in August, to 2783 in September and 2348 in October. And their target was 4000 units monthly.

Unlike earlier, the current discounts is not on the E variant, but for the G1 and G2 variants. Rs. 60,000 worth is something.

Wonder if there is something really going wrong or is it just an year end problem.

Saajan, you might find this thread really useful: Shan2nu's 1000km report on Toyota Innova Petrol (Toyota Innova 1000km report.)

Here is the sibling that drinks the cheaper stuff: Revvmaster's Innova D-4D Review (Toyota Innova D4D test driven)

Perhaps this will free some production capacity for the new SUV.

Actually Toyota is cutting back production by 40% to clear the huge backlog. While the diesel has been a great seller, the petrol version is gathering dust in the warehouses
