Update: Got Delivery of my Toyota Innova V - 8 Seater
Finally Finally I have booked Innova VX- 8 seater today at Galaxy Moti Nagar Delhi.
I am relax today, as it all started last year in April, when I sold my Honda GXi 2005 model. Got Bang from everyone at home why I sold when its running without problems. But due to 8 seater requirement for big family I decided to sell that off and look for (1) Pajero 2nd Hand or (2) Innova Second Hand. I started my search for good second hand SUV/MUV for me. But its hard luck searching around in all nearby areas and went to other corner of the city for good vechicle, but Pajero for 2nd hand its too much costly, as I was ready max for 12L for this beauty, but hard luck. Then after few month hard luck I gave up for Pajero.
Now its search for Innova, or I would say good Innova. But I guess people think if someone is guying 8 seater innova in second hand he might be going for Taxi not for personal use. So I was getting all cream polished Innovas from dealers. If its good they are charging like rate for new one, just few peti discounts. Then you won't get color of your choice. Then in Nov last year I gave up for second hand innova too.
Now decided to go for new one only. Then thought of saving some bucks and decided to look for G4, in 08 was getting good discounts but not getting Red color, which I was keen to get in Innova. So no choice other then waiting for New model.
In the meanwhile Xylo got launched, its a tempting offer as 8.5L I am getting everything. I liked it with some hick-ups and took test drive, man I was thinking in mind I am not made for this bull. I can't drive this. Too take second opinion I took my father other day. First immpression he liked it, and took drive too. Now I decided to take him to Innova dealer and ask him to take TD for Innova. First word he utter why were you looking for that truck when we have such vechicles in market. So Xylo cancelled.
Now on 28th new Innova is lauched and I was waiting to see what changed they have done in G4, so that I can book it right away, but after looking at it from front, there is no crom grill in G4 model so its not attracting at all. Then Looked at V, grea Mica Metallic, fall in love with that and decided to go for V irrespective for cost diff. So Booked it that's it.
I got finance from HDFC at 11.50%, didn't have time to look around. As I am dealing with them from last 6 years so want to stay with them. But 8 seater Greay Mica is not is stock, so I guess I have to wait for next lot which will take max 10 days.

Top end Innova interior is much better now, they did lot of tuning. 12 lac on road in Delhi and 13.3 lacs in Bangalore (because of more tax in Karnataka) makes it very good buy. Its loaded with features!
About tyre I suggest you go with Michellin MXV8 225/60 R15 (its only few thousands costly but worth it) right away once you take delivery of the vehicle. You can still mount that tyre on Stock alloys and don't change alloys. This tyre would give you best comfort you can feel with Innova. If you want to stick to stock size then go for MXV8 or XM1+ stock size. But change your tyre for sure to Michellin, you will love your vehicle.
Innova still come with goodyear GT3 and Bridgestone tyres which are not good enough for the vehicle quality. So Michellin would add extra excellant comfort.
Only cheap part I could spot in Innova is GT3 tyre which is not good at all.

Congrats Sam on your fantastic purchase. Color you have chosen is good & additional parking sensors at the same price is lucrative too.
