Go for Innova. Toyota cars are highly reliable and the tyres are also 1500 kms old. Insurance is valid till 2010. They also have good service backup.

Innova is a mouth watering option.

However, if you look at the ownership for the vehicle for a long term, do look at continuing with the option of Xylo. Its new model and is an excellent Value for Money vehicle.

Do continue with Xylo and just concentrate on your goal

Ineed Innova is a the option with closed eyes. You cannot simply compare a Jap product with a Indian or American product.

With 30K odo Innova is still young, to keep the young feeling go pete's way.

why should you buy a second hand vehicle when you can go for a new one? a second hand car will never have the charm of a new one.

forget the tavera, go for the xylo, its a great MUV.

Innova is in a class of its own. It's nice to drive, handles well, comfortable seating and loads of space.

If i can get 15kmpl from a Petrol, im sure the diesel version can get close to 20kmpl with the right driving style.

I would any day go with Innova. However, as everyone suggested, please check the service record and also get it inspected (if possible) and then make a choice.

Not sure aboyt Xylo, but Tavera ride quality is not that great compared to Innova. So, I would suggest you take these out for a spin and decide for yourself.

Also, give it a shot at Sume Grande. I like it's build.

Mind tells me Innova. Heart goes to Xylo.
I suspect something wrong with the Innova you mentioned.

The car has done 30k and tyres are 1500 kms old.I don't think a well maintained Innova should need a change of tyres in just 28.5 k kms.

Also the price looks a little steep to me.

If I were you,I'll look at a few more used Innovas(the V especially) before deciding

innova diesel will not give 20 kmpl, even when driven without AC.

mine gives 13 kmpl on highways with AC, if driven at speeds of 70-80 kmph.

I suggest look out more for preowned Innovas, I am sure you can find good one.

About Innova Diesel FE it can give around 19kmpl If driven with best driving skills and during night time, max 60kmph, less gear shift, less braking.

Best FE I noticed in my Petrol Innova was 13kmpl.

Regards,

Ravi.

An old car is an old car, no matter how nicely (errr...tire change at 28K) it is maintained. On the other hand Xylo is a an equally (though lags behind in refinement) competent and hot selling MUV, which is more rugged, more powerful, has better 3rd row space and equally reliable....If I were you I would go for Xylo.

Cheers,
Deepak

why would you say that? depends on how its driven and on what roads its driven.

You do not have Grande on your list but take my words and do a test drive of it, you will go gaga over the engine it and the comfort you get.

With the innova you will

1> save on depreciation when you drive off the lot.
2> have a much more refined ride
3> be more comfortable at high speeds on the highway
4> have virtually no maintenance

Xylo will give you the new car smell and feel.
But so far i feel the long term ownership is still untested. It took a few iterations for the scorpio to get a refined ride quality

In the end it will come down to: "Do I want to have a new car or am I mentally comfortable with a second hand car." and you have your answer.
