Before buying a new Innova Crysta , do check with Tata Hexa (Automatic ) . I personally prefer that than crysta , which is way expensive , and also the comfort Hexa Provides is more than crysta (I have driven Innova Gen1, Gen2, and the crysta ) , and I vouch for it . Do test drive it .
Don't want to touch Tata cars as dad loves Innova more than anything else.I myself told him to get a Fortuner but he found Fortuner uncomfortable,expensive and too big compared to Innova.He always find Innova is more comfortable compared to Fortuner.

Just test drive Hexa bro , its his opinion in final . Innova Crysta has safety rating just 2 star , while Tata is coming up globally in safety regard too . I agree , Innova is a benchmark in its segment , especially with maintenance free engine (Munching miles ) , but do check in Hexa for ride quality .

But but he prefers Innova only.Had told him to consider the Fortuner too but new one costs dangerously close to Rs.42L(4X4 AT) while 4X2 MT costs around Rs.37L and he doesn't like Fortuner due to lack of comfort and too big compared to the Innova.But saw a 2017-end 23000 Kms run Fortuner 2WD MT going for Rs.30L and it belongs to a top pharma company of Hyderabad.So,we are considering Crysta(new/used),Creta(new/used)or a Fortuner(used only as new one costs around Rs.40L).

Anyways,our Innova has crossed 1.5L Kms and gave it for service today and got a bill of Rs.19600 including replacement of timing belt.And,recently,my Innova had met with a minor accident in which I need to replace front bumper and upper grille only.

Fortuner is a pure SUV , which isnt for comfort , if for comfort look into Endeavour (they have retuned the suspension again for luxury standards from stiff to soft ) , but for the price bracket , Hexa is a benchmark , don't underwstimate it being a TATA (There's a notion in people's mind that Tata is for those who prefer Indica ) , Tata , is gonna be a new league soon .

My family did 1400 Kms trip to Kanchipuram again on Jan 5th 2020.What a good way to start 2020.The odo was 1,51,000 Kms when they started and when they returned,the odo was around 1,52,400 Kms and did 4000 Kms in a month with the Innova without any issues.Now,the odo reading has crossed 1,55,000 Kms.In 40 days after 1.5L Kms service,we did around 5000 Kms which we always do the same running in 2 months.And,recently,I got Hella Chrome trumpets for the Innova before they went to the trip and got rear bumper guard installed too.
