Value for Money
I purchased Innova Crysta Silver GX (8) about 40 days ago and travelled around 1700 kms.
Lookwise the Car is excellent, On one sight it attracts all people. Front bold looks and dashing rear is superb.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
Very good comfortable seats, even I drove with 10 persons on board (My family and my sister family) for about 350 kms and everybody was feeling so comfortable.
All required features like Cooled glove box, Tilt and telescopic steering, MIS for driver, AC vents for all rows, driver arm rest, head rest for all passengers are avaiable.
Few features which are required but not there are music system (Can buy from open market), speed sensing auto door lock, charging port in 3rd row and reverse camera (Can buy from open market).
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
It has three modes of driving Eco, Normal and Power, I didn't see any huge millege difference in each mode but pick up difference is huge, Normal mode is the best way of driving as it never lacks for sudden power and also gives good fuel efficiency, during overtaking and on hills driving, Power mode can be used. I am getting fuel economy of 16 km/litre on highway and 10 ~ 11 in city driving, overall it comes to 15 + .
Gear changing is very smooth, howerver, Gear changing ratio is too short as you would be needing to change the gears even in change of speed of 20km/hr to get good fuel economy, 1st gear : upto 20 km/hr, 2nd gear : upto 40 km/ hr, 3rd gear : upto 50~60 km/hr, 4th gear upto 80 km/hr and 5th onwards.
Ride Quality & Handling
Suspension is also very good, minor pot holes never pass on inside the car.
Nice car with good comfort with high level quality and safety
Areas of improvement
Toyota could have been added 2 speakers for 3rd row (it is already having 4 speakers in GX), a charging port and speed sensing auto lock in GX variant.
Good Road visibility, Fuel Economy, Seating Comfort and Safety featuresMusic System not provided in GX and speakers and charging ports not there in 3rd row
