Do keep in mind that it is the same Toyota that makes both these cars and they have a very similar architecture and many common parts. If it was me, I would go for the Crysta and save the 8-9 lacs . If you aren't comfortable buying a 20L car from them, i suggest dont buy a 30L one either.

If you are going to use the car as much as the City, The hexa would be a good choice( for 7-8 yrs). If you think of selling early, within 5 years just go with a Toyota. Before buying a car, do try all alternatives, and I mean all, even the MU-X , and Hexa and whichever 7 seater I maybe missing out on.

I thought the other way around.....If you want to clock more kms & keep the vehicle for 7-8 years, buy Toyota...I believe their engines are rock solid & can easily do more kms (2-6 Lakhs) without any major trouble.

Heard that reliability will be the a major concern for mahindra/Tata etc once the vehicle clock 1L-1.5L kms

This is just one of the aspects to buy a SUV rather than renting it. My father travels a lot due to our business. A Delhi-Jaipur-Delhi run once or twice every two weeks, A visit to the Natives in Amritsar every two - three months (Whole family) and a drive in the Summer Holidays(again all 6 of us). All of this was done on City, Hence the need here, according to me is justified.

I must say you have a very valid point here. Indeed both the cars have similar architecture, but then I did not come across any major problems on the Fortuner reported by BHPians (Do link a thread If you find some). I dont want to take a chance with the safety of my family (It is not about the safety features but reliability). And moreover, existing Innova Crysta Niggles thread is sufficient to scare me and keep me away from buying it, but then it is my perspective. Hope you understand the point here
