hi
I need to buy new toyota innova petrol 2.0 on diwali, but local dealer nanavati Toyota in Surat refuses to take order with in full payment in advance & 2 months delivery time with no discounts.
How that can be possible?
1. Is there anyother dealer can deliver car in surat?
2. Is there any discounts available in petrol version right now?
3. Is new petrol version is more refine for CNG then older petrol?
4. Is there any warranty issues with petrol as i m least customer compare to diesel?
5. Maintanace will be lower or higher than diesel in entire life?
6. As i am driving more than 20000km to 25000/ Yr in city with 4 or 5 time out of city, is Cng innova a good idea? As cng available easly in surat & entire gujarat.
7. Is petrol has more pickup than diesel?
8. Can i force surat dealer to take my order as normal order?

I own rightnow 5 cars (honda city and 2007 accord,maruti baleno,hyundai accent viva and santro) all in Cng which is great hit for me.

kindly advice

@ neo_trace: Petrol Innovas are typically made to order & thus have 2/3 months waiting period. Dealer would ask for 2/2.5 L as booking amount.

Why not look at diesel Innova with such usage? It would be easily available as well.

about ownership experience of Patrol Innova, read ownership review by 'ravibhat'.

but it comes with 86000 rs excess in price which is very expensive for common burner type cng kit and i can buy advanced direct injection cng kit at 65000 from lovato which performs same as petrol.

With a running total of 25000 kms a year, why would you want to buy the Innova petrol? Go for the diesel with your eyes shut. You will enjoy the superior torque (especially when travelling with 5 - 6 people onboard), the respectable fuel efficiency, robustness, ability to take any kind of diesel (IMP on the highway) and way superior resale value.

Some Innova petrol reviews:
