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

Default Sell Eritiga and Buy ????

Hi All

I own a Ertiga which has just touched 80k kms, now i am confused as to whether i should hold it for another 1 year and sell or sell it now and buy something else.

Since 80k km is done i foresee , Steering Box change & Suspension change, also if i sell now i may get better value as market value changes after 1L km.

So here are the questions.
1. Should i sell or keep it for another year or so
2. What is the value i can expect for 2013 ZDI 80k km - all service on time and on interval.
3. What spacious SUV can i get for upto 12L (used)
4. Can we get decent 1L km done Fortuner or is it a good option
5 or should i look for XUV / Rexton / Pajero - Which is better - 1 am 6.1 and priority is leg space for me
6 Innova was not comfortable in the driver seat

Hello Sir,

Let me leave the first two questions to the Gurus here and try answering the last four:

3) For upto 12 Lakh INR, you can get yourself a used Toyota Fortuner, an Endeavour or a XUV 5oo.

4) Used fortuners are abundant in the used car market. You can easily get a well maintained Fortuner for well under 12 Lakhs. Toyota Body On Frame diesels are known to be very reliable, you can easily use it for another Lakh km or so.

5) Within these 3 options, a used XUV is the best choice. The rexton isn't known to be a reliable car to live with. Link to Rexton engine trouble thread :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/technical-stuff/135000-engine-trouble-mahindra-ssangyong-rexton-edit-turbo-replaced-under-warranty-13.html

A used Pajero is a very good option except for the fact that Mitsubishi's after sales and service network isn't great. The XUV offers plenty of legroom, trust me, we own one and my father is 6 foot too, and the people sitting right behind him have loads of legroom to stretch their legs.

6) Between the Fortuner And the XUV, if space and ride quality is your main priority, go in for the XUV (the previous gen Fortuner is known to have a very bumpy ride). The XUV's ride quality is superior to the Fortuner and also comes loaded with features.

Bhpian Ace F355 Sir purchased a used fortuner in 2016. Link to ownership thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...-crunched.html

Link to D- Bhpian @ParagSachania Sir's Ertiga ownership thread in case you want to know more about the 80k service and whether to retain the Ertiga or not.

last month we exchanged our 2012 Ertiga Zdi with a new XUV 500 AWD AT. got 5.5 lakhs for 81000 kms used ertiga without alloys.
if you are going for Fortuner, expect a poor ride comfort compared to ertiga.

Thank you for the update . Mine is ZDi without alloys as well.

How much was XUV on road cost and is the autobox good enough ?

costed 22lakhs on road in trivandrum for w10 at awd, with december discounts applied and insurance directly from royal sundaram.
At has a slight lag, but manageable. I found at far superior to mt for obvious reasons.
btw we felt Hexa at transmission superior to xuv's.
