Yeah 'Passionnova' and Toyota has stopped Black color option altogether.

The Innova's shape has something so very mesmerizing. Except from a few boring angles most of the angles reveal the out of the box styling keeping in mind the aerodynamics. The surface area of the car is stupendous, so much so that I find it hard to get people to wash the car when I'm travelling. The best thing I like is to sit in the rear most seat and dine or watch a movie on my laptop with the audio hooked to the car ICE. I may Love Cars just as others but I also Live inside my Cars.

Not just mine. When I see other Innovas on the road I get a real crush on them as well, especially in situations when 2 or 3 are driving in formation. I actually slipstream them. Its a wonderful feeling. I like the rear axle just wobble up and down due to road undulations. Sometimes If I see a old santro on the road from a distance I mistake it for an Innova.

Thanks for contributing you vehicle photos. Need more.

Just travelling in any other vehicle on a long distance will make u feel the worth of what you have chosen. Lets not get into the details, cause there are many.

Thanks Again! It was great meeting you that day. I meant almost everyday back home, I actually lounge entire evenings in the vehicle starting with late afternoon coffee, snacks, music, talks, movie ending with dinner and then home.

The car is also an effective hide to shoot birds at the edge of water.

Well in fact any car acts as an effective hide. This was in T G Halli, near Bangalore.

Birds are best snapped early in the morning. They fly away when the sound of a vehicle approach them.

But, if the vehicle is already present in the scenery since long, they tend to ignore and just go about their normal life. Then you can easily snap them.

The Innova bit here is that, you can position the car at night, since you have the option of living in it. Then "sit in the rear most seat and dine or watch a movie on your laptop with the audio hooked to the car ICE."

As dawn approaches switch off the ICE, roll down the window, take the snap and just be on your way.

Cool 60 Innova Collage

Hyderabad has quite a number of Innovas.

So here is a collection of 60 Innovas spotted in my recent trip early this year.

Many have started flaunting TG numberplates as well.
