Default Re: Replacement for a 10-year old Toyota Innova

We've decided to get replace our 2010 Innova 2.5 GX with a Crysta GX petrol AT. I thought it would happen after a while but considering the wait time, we'll be booking it within the next week. We're probably getting the new "Sparkling Black Crystal Shine".

I was wondering if it would be prudent to get the 17 inch wheels which come with the Z and V trims replacing the 16 inch ones that come with the G trim. If yo geys have any suggestions about accessorizing, please let me know.

Thanks!

Planning to put the MG Hector into the consideration list as well after reading the reviews stating that the Hector also has good comfort along with the good ride quality.

Despite being Chinese, the Hector seemed to be a good option.

Utility, comfort, reliability, etc etc: Only an Innova can replace an Innova. It's a no brainer and does it even need a poll?? May be you've missed the upcoming Alcazar.

I have Innova VX bought in January 2009. It has run 180K kilometres. Have travelled long distance and gives me an average of 14.7kmpl even today on highways with AC. It can easily last for 200k kilometres without huge maintenance bills. If one has to replace an innova, go for another innova.

Buying a new car will NOT save you money vs. keeping your old Innova.
It will however provide you with a superior, and more comfortable vehicle.

Have done a quick back-of-hand calculation for you. Have attached the excel, so you may change the assumptions I have made.
Thanks, great spreadsheet. I recently sold my 2013 Innova VX (2nd owner) due to a move. It had done ~1.5 lakh km and I got 6.5 lakhs for it in Mumbai. The buyer took it for personal use, but also had a taxi company. He said they routinely run Innovas for 5 to 6 lakh km, some even more. No replacement for an Innova..

In 2019, I was exactly in the same position. My 2007 Innova had run almost 160K and still as reliable as ever with pristine interiors; sold it because I've a max-12 year rule and my weekend drives started clocking 700km every week. Mileage of 13.5kmpl was pinching a bit and needed an automatic for weekday commute to work. Picked Seltos AT because I liked Diesel+AT much better than Petrol+DCT; good looks, mileage of approx 20kmpl on highways and much better NVH; also that was the only BS6 option available then. Car is still good though due to covid, much lesser run. Though it just can't give you that comfort and solid feeling you get in a Crysta. All said, if I was doing this decision today, will definitely go for Crysta G AT (Z AT is good, but very costly and doesn't have the middle row bench seats - family loves that much more than captain seats), now that it is available in BS6. Road noise is still a bit higher than Seltos, but the ride quality is miles ahead. All the bling and bells and whistles you get in Seltos wears off after few months - the assurance you get from a Toyota won't.

Thanks for the suggestion sir!

Glad to see that you had the Innova before and replaced it with Seltos!

What made you to purchase the Seltos by replacing the Innova and instead of purchasing the Crysta as you had an Innova right?

Did you feel any difference between the Innova and Seltos, in terms of drivability and comfort?

If possible look in Delhi. Prices for crysta are much lower there. May work out a lakh or two cheaper after accounting for re-registration fees.
