I guess the car had done 22000kms on stock tyres which were worn now.

The AC is very good though.

I think he meant that it does not have adjustable lumbar support (like, for example, the Safari does)

Pardon me but a 102bhp engine and 20kgm torque on a 2300 kilo vehicle is far from powerful. The power:weight is 44bhp/tonne which is absolutely laughable . I'm guessing that to reach the ton, it'll need more than 20 seconds.

we have both the abs and non abs versions
Giving rear drums brakes on such a heavy vehicle is stupid as well as dangerous. Atleast the top end model of the Innova which is well north of 10 lacs should have had discs in front and rear.

^^ I think 150 is probably the top speed of the vehicle. Though I dont trust auto car much, here are a few figures.... Looks like it does the ton in ~18 seconds. I must add I've never driven one myself so all this is 2nd hand info.


Petrol/Diesel
Engine Displacement (in cc) 1998/2494
Number of Cylinders 4
Power (in bhp) 136/102
Torque (in kgm) 18.6/20.4
Number of Gears 5
Manual / Automatic Transmission Manual
Mileage City (in kpl) 7.7/10.3
Mileage Highway (in kpl) 11.3/12.7
Acceleration 0-60kph (in seconds) 5.14/6.6
Acceleration 0-100kph (in seconds) 12.63/17.5
Top Speed (in kph) 179/146
20-80 in 3rd Gear (in seconds) 13.42/14.39
40-100 in 4th Gear (in seconds) 18.79/19.50

You are right manikjeet about vibration of Innova, even my Petrol Innova vibrates I have noticed this well before I decided it to buy.

I felt thats how it is with heavy engines with MUV/SUV..

Innova isnot underpowered but there are more faster SUV/MUV in India comapred with Innova
I feel however don't know. According to me Safari is faster than Innova or let me word it Safari is more powerfull than Innova I think.

Top speed I saw with Diesel Innova is 160km and my Petrol Innova's top speed is 125km. One guy who works in reputed company said he touched 170km on the way to Tirupati from Bangalore in early morning in his Petrol Innova.

More powerful engine more vibration and noice I feel.

The reason when I upgraded from Santro to Swift I felt Swift makes more vibration and noice, Now from Swift to Innova I felt I am seeing/sitting in truck/bus, but I choose Petrol because vibration/noice was less at least inside the cabin and I am not bothered about resale value since I would
like to use it for at least 6 years. Person who works toyota factory told me Petrol Innova spare parts might be 5% costlier than Diesel but If I am not particular about FE/Resale go with Petrol since I can use it with peace of mind for at least 2 lacs km I am sure my running is not more than 15000km per year.

Regards,

Ravi.

Petrol Innova gives around 7 to 11km thats right. I get same figures also and heard from people who own Petrol.

My freind is suggesting me to try with LPG on my Petrol Innova but I am not interested. When i asked senior guys @Toyota told me they came acorss one Petrol Innova with LPG which had too many problems.

2 years later If I gettempted to buy other cars may be I will play around with my Innova by fitting LPG.

Rates he said it would cost 19k with 50+ltr tabk I gues BRC original kit since he knows the guy who fit LPG very well

Regards,

Ravi.

BUSA u need to teast drive it again. Its one of the most comfortable of all the MUV / SUV and its vibrations are same as any other SUV/ MUV.. It can do 3 digits quiet good and i agree torque is less for a bigger vehicle like this. But this MUV performs as good as mid size sedan on highway and u wont feel it sluggish.

Overall its very nice car (i say car because it handling is like one and doesnt feel like you are driving something very uncomfortably big) IMHO
