People would go for it considering it is a Toyota!
TATA would know that they need to price the indicruz less than or identical to the Innova with much more features. Else they are making a major pricing error.

Right Now? Better go with the Innova.
The wait may be too long with this one also, given its a Toyota

Auto expo is in January. So if you can wait then wait 3 more months.
BS IV is is applicable from March 2010. So Toyota have to launch Innova with euro 4 compliant engine at least if no other change. I feel they will bring some more changes along with the BS IV thing.

OT: As Hyundai is launching Santa Fe in this auto expo. Although Innova and Santa Fe are in different league but if they launch Santa Fe as 7S and priced it less 15L, then it would be interesting.

But when you consider the quantum leap from the Qualis to the Innova, they certainly "upped" the game then!

And more recently, when the Land Cruiser landed here at Rs 90 odd Lacs, man, that was some serious "upping" the game!

Some things that will always be in their favour is their quality, fit, finish, service and reliability. I greatly appreciate that about Toyota - these things never vary and are considered pretty much "hygiene level" requirements.
Totally Agree with you.
In the case of Qualis they surely upped the game in the Indian market scene but current model of picnic is not much superior to Innova so IMO if they launch the old model picnic then Toyota is not upping the game. But I feel Toyota always likes to be ahead of the competitors at least in the Indian market so they may launch something before Indicruz or Yeti or any other MUV will come.
Toyota is used to leadership position in the MUV market and they are not going to let it go. They get maximum numbers from this segment only.

This is the Toyota Avensis. This model is currently sold in Australia. Was there a few months back, saw a lot of these on the roads.

So in the end it may just be a benchmarking (read engine and suspension test) evaluation for something in the Avensis that could be added to the Innova without the avensis ever coming to India.

Some related news on a possible 2012 launch-

Toyota mulls an MPV between Etios and Innova

BANGALORE: Japanese carmaker Toyota today said it may consider bringing in a new multi purpose vehicle, which is likely to be positioned between its latest offering Etios and Innova.

"There is a room for another model between Etios and Innova. We are seriously considering it and a study is going on for this," Toyota Motor Asia Pacific Senior Vice President (Area Operations Division) Vonce S Socco told reporters here.

He, however, declined to share any time-frame for launching the vehicle, saying the company's priority is to strengthen its position on the back of Etios.

"If anything like that (launching the model) happens, it will be in 2012 or after that," Socco said.

When asked what kind of vehicles will it be, he said, "Nothing has been finalised yet, but our inclination is towards a multi purpose vehicle."

The company, which is present in India through a joint venture with the Kirloskar Group, today launched its much- anticipated entry-level sedan Etios in India, priced at Rs 4.96 lakh-Rs 6.86 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The Innova is offered between Rs 8.35 lakh and Rs 12.21 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

I was hoping that Toyota might bring the Avanza to India.I read on the internet that its selling like hot cakes in Pakistand and Bangladesh.
I wonder why Toyota wouldnt want to bring that to India?

Default A diesel Tarago please, TKML!

Although I am not as much of an auto buff like many others here, I too have been eagerly waiting to see what's next in the evolution of 'Qualis-Innova-?' species. Somehow I was thinking that TKML would bring in the 'Tarago' with a diesel motor as the natural successor to the Innova.

Nice car and I would love to have a car some thing like that. But be aware that this car has a bumpy ride. I had already experienced that.

Most of the modern " international cars " cannot handle our roads. We cant change roads at the beck and call of their cars. They have to adapt.
