Default got the answer!

Thanks again for all your input. Took a test drive of both the Innova Vti and D-4D, back to back and even drove them on the busy city roads. It really has loads of space inside and rode quite o.k . So have finally decided on the D-4D (the V variant). Hope we don't regret it. Will have to wait for at least a month for delivery.

Congrats rheman!
Hey by the way, since u test drove both the vti as well as d4d... can u let us know wot were ur impressions on both and how they compared against one another? I dont think anyone has posted a comparison between the petrol and diesel variants of innova...

Cheers

I'm not sure whether this is correct, but my friend back home tells me that the standard models have a shorter waiting period - 40 odd days. Apparantly the top end models have a 2-2.5 month waiting period, even for the petrol.....

Is that because Toyota has consciously decided to produce less petrol variants?

Default oops, sorry.

Sorry GTO, But I'm not allowed to post in other sections. In fact not even allowed to reply in the thread started by me. Won't happen again.

Thanks for all your good wishes.

Steeroid, over here, according to the dealer,there is no demand for the petrol variant,especially in the lower segments. In fact there is almost no waiting for the petrol in all the segments. That maybe because we are at a smaller place. I'll have to wait a little longer for the D-4D because I want it in red. A contact in a car financing company offered to get one in golden beige from Dehradun, but we refused. I don't know what the situation is in bigger cities.
The dealer said they had not been expecting so many bookings in the upper segment , thereby leading to the long waiting.

I can give you a very amateurish attempt at comparing both the Vti and the D4D, so I had better not try !
