Default diesel v/s gasoline Innova

Dear All,
This is my first post in TeamBHP.
After having gone through all the posts about Innova..

I am putting following questions in front of you.

1) Which dealer in Bangalore is best for Toyota Innova
2) What is the maximum discount I can get on G1 model.
3) I wanted to buy Gasoline Innova. How far Gasoline is better than Diesel. I prefer Gasoline only for its fuel economy and nothing else.

Please help me to decide ASAP.

Cheers
Prakash

In terms of performance, the petrol Innova is way ahead but, the diesel variant beats it in terms of FE.

Our Petrol version gives us around 12-13kmpl on the highway. The diesel versions they say, is capable of giving upto 17kmpl.

Infact Petrol Innova Rocks..It apparently has the same engine as the camry with a different gearing..Does a top whack of about 170..

And it is very good VFM..unless you are a tourist operator doing more than 200K kms..

The petrol is around 60k cheaper than the diesel.
Going by blore rates, the petrol would be around Rs 4.8 per km, the diesel around 2.9 per km, a difference of 1.9 rs.
60,000/2.9 : 21,000kms

after the first 21,00kms, u will be paying around 1.9 rs extra per km. But if you are looking at a performance UV, look no further

We had both first we both a petrol(v sold now) and then we got two deisel(G1 and v) ones ]

The only thing i felt good about the petrol one was that it was a good performer but the diesel is not that bad it has good performace and you can take it upto 140


if you going for the G1 i wouldsuggest to check out the limited addition one it has a power window which are absent on normal G1

Petrol cant match the in-gear acceleration and to me for higher load applications Diesel engine is a better bet and the engine in Innova is an awesome one. I drove a fully loaded Innova (8 people on board) with the A/C on, was at 40 kph in 4th while climbing a flyover and it still accelerated without even a murmur or protest from the engine. Its a no brainer for me.... has to be diesel.

P.S The 2.0 petrol in Innova is NOT the same as the engine in Camry. As far as I know Camry always came with a 2.4, although both of them have toyota's much acclaimed VVTi.

The Diesel variant is better for stop and go traffic and climbing up slopes with full load.
Petrol Innova for flat-out peformance, but can be a little wanting lower down the rev range.

Ravindu and Nandi both are good, I know guys in Ravindu If you need any assistance do let me know. I am not sure about discount because from last few months Innova sales improved
because people realized its good car. Petrol comes with more discounts may be around 50k and Diesel comes with 30k discount I feel. That makes Petrol 1 lac cheaper than Diesel.


Go with Diesel Innova If you travel a lot and your priority is FE.

I own G3 Petrol Innova and I get 8kmpl in Bangalore with 40% AC on and 10.5kmpl on highway with 70% AC on. My driver averages speed of 80kmph. Top speed is not more than 120km.

I really liked Petrol Innova for good flat performance super silky smooth ride with less noice. Diesel Innova sounds like Truck (Its common with few of the Diesel cars..) once we touch 100kmph.

When I use shell I get 1km less as FE. for me BP regular petrol worked best and Toyota guy who is my relative told me regular fuel is more than enough for Innova.

I do agree in stop go traffic Diesel is better than Petrol but even with AC on I don't have any problem with Petrol

If you don't give importance to FE, Resale value, don't do much travelling ( less than 1500km per month ) go with Petrol.

It will take 30,000 km to reach same price for Petrol and Diesel Innova and from there Diesel will be economical for FE but for indian bad Diesel quality I feel Diesel engine need more maintainence... sometimes based on our luck where we fill fuel.

Regards,

Ravi.
