Please note that India as always hasnt got what the rest of the world got in 2005 - the 2.5L 134hp engine - we still have the comparatively anaemic 102hp engine.

Wouldn't all innova owners want 33% more power - what say Tirthankar moshay? Then it'll be volvos bye bye

phamilyman, not only anemic engines by specs add the exorbitant costs they sell these machines to us. This has been my sore point always with most of the manufacturers. They fleece us like MAD!!

One cant squarely put the blame only on the manufacturers. What about Government taxes. According to the Indian Government, cars are a luxury & the bigger they get the bigger should be tax that should be levied on them.
The clear apathy of the government can be seen from the fact that even electric cars are not spared of the tax burden. I am sure the Nano is also not going to be spared in this regards.
Imports like the HiLux will be sneered upon by the Govt.

Then the fuel efficiency of the Innova would have gone down.

I agree, they are not very economical as it is.

Maybe the new one will have the 139BHP engines?

spotted the same red hilux in november opposite boat club getting some ICE.
Didnt look that good in red and In my opinion fortuner looks far better than the cab version.
(the rear seats are more like bench class).

I like that red Hilux. Change the tail lights, and make it most any other color, and it'd be perfect. It's optioned out well for off roading.
