Pros : Looks, performance and comfort

Cons : Low ground clearance

Looks: One biggest reason for me to buy the car was because of its looks as I find it a perfect blend of tough yet subtle looks.  Comfort: Seating and driving comfort is good. The controls are placed sensibly and make the drive simple and smooth. Pickup : Very smooth and noise free pick up. Mileage: I get a mileage of 10 kmpl in city areas and around 14kmpl on highways. Best Features: One area that the car excels at is that of comfort as the car offers extremely comfortable seating and handling. Most of the time that we have travelled its always with loads of luggage and the car has always been enough. Needs to improve: The only advice I have for Toyota motors is that the ground clearance could have been a bit more as on hilly areas that can be an issue. Overall Experience: We have a family of 5 members and all share a common love for travelling. We plan for at least 1 trip every 2 months and always travel by our own vehicle. The decision to buy an MUV was mutually decided amongst all of us and the obvious choice was Innova as the looks of the car are simply killing. The car offers enough of seating space for 8 people and the carrying of luggage becomes all the more simpler. Toyota seems to have paid a lot of attention on the boot space capacity of the car as the space is enough to carry luggage for a 7 day travel. The first time I took the car on the highways, I was reluctant to raise the speed bar too much, but it easily drove to a speed of 160 kmph, without any vibrations and rattles.  In terms of performance I have not faced any issues as of now. Indeed my kids call it the great Panther. Its powerful, the performance on road is commendable and I am absolutely in love with the looks of the car. The interior quality is top notch and so are the fittings and trims. The gearshift is smooth like butter and engine isn't noisy enough. I do love the oodles of space this car has and perfect place car for a 5+ people family, be it  a shopping spree or a weekend break.

    Recently in July 2010 I have bought a Toyota Innova VX model from Trichy TKM Distributor. One biggest reason for me to choose this car was because I have gone through all the owners Car Review article published in Cardekho and finally had selected this vehicle to buy despite my son's ambition to have Scarpio AT. After using last three months heavily and having a marriage fuction in our house and the honey moon trips by my son and daughter-in law and my daughter and son-in law, we all are proud and admit, we have taken correct decision to buy this car on all aspects. Let it be - comfort, space, luxury, safety, child enjoyment, caring old people, good looking, there is match in front of Innova. After riding the Scarpio from my cousin's house, my son also admitted that our Innova is the best than Scarpio in all aspect. Although we have Prado and Camrys in Dubai, It is proud to have Innova at home. I got comfort equal to the Prado in Innova. Thank God, our correct selection make our life easy.
