@Duttan,
Ride quality is very good. Even in speed breakers(3 in a row ones) it is good. Default speed is 100kmph. Even at 120 car seems to like its doing 60.

If you are going for gx better go for hexa . If z is your choice go for 2.8. It is the perfect package. It is fully loaded unlike hexa and vfm compared to fortuner which sadly doesnt has captain seats in 2nd row. Below 40 lacs segment this is the best 7 seater package.

Some areas of improvement in 2.8 z are paddle shifters, proper 'S' mode in auto box, memory seats.
Since i am a Toyota Customer , i will always prefer the Toyota because of their reliability for the longer use . i cannot extended the to z because that was out of my budget . Also in the case of hexa i think it will take some time in the market so how the vehicle performs .

Also most of the vehicles has been upgraded to electric vehicles within a few years as per the current market trend . I am waiting about the hybrid of Toyota early 2018.

Also the government is deciding the ban the vehicles after 15 years . That makes me little concern regarding this matter since SIAM asked government to do so . Hexa is a better package but their reliability cant be tell now that was the main issue regarding the Hexa

Innova Crysta ground clearance.

In my new car buying process, we are considering Innova Crysta, but ground clearance was no where mentioned in the browser.

Today I visited Toyota showroom in Pune and saw underbody. I found that rear differential was the lowest part of the car. Then I asked SA about ground clearance. Reluctantly he told me that it is 170mm.

Again 170mm is unladen ground clearance. It will lower further under full capacity of the car. My question is whether this car is suitable for Leh Laddak terrain? Will rear differential take hit on uneven road?

Re: Innova Crysta ground clearance.

Tough to say, Ive had my CRV rear differential hit bottom on a tall unassuming rock once and it was not pretty

But Ive seen older Innovas with bigger tyres and jacked up suspensions in NE states like Sikkim so it should be fine

I suggest seeing ownership reports where the said car has gone to Leh Ladakh

@ISO,
GC is more than 170mm. What teambhp says,

Everything looks & feels incredibly robust - built for abuse. Engine doesn't get a full underbody plate, yet there is adequate protection here. Official ground clearance rating is merely 167 mm, but don't be misled by that. Toyota has artificially kept it low just as Mahindra did with the XUV500 @ 160 mm. Reason? They save 3% excise duty (27% vs 30% for big UVs with 170 mm of GC). 3% on a 15 lakh car is Rs. 45,000! I put the Innova Crysta through some mild offroading and she didn't scrape anywhere:

New Crysta updates!

Now,Crysta GX gets the following updates:

Cruise control ( AT only)
Speed-Sensing lock
Impact Sensing Door Unlock
Sunvisor w mirror/ lid
ORVM w/ Retract & Welcome light
Steering Switch MID, Audio Control, Telephone
Display Audio, Touch Screen, DVD, BT, Mic & Amplifier ( For Bluetooth Phone)

New features in Innova Crysta and Innova Touring Sport
• Anti-Theft Alarm with Glass Break and Ultrasonic Sensor
• Emergency Brake Signal
• Rear Fog Lamp
• Front LED Fog Lamp

Now,after seeing this,thinking to buy a Crysta GX AT as it costs Rs.6L than Z AT and compared to my 2011 Innova VX and other versions of Crysta,I will be missing front fog lamps,auto climate control,bigger MID(VX and Z),extra 4 airbags(Z) and 17 inch alloys(Z).But,if I buy GX AT,I would be getting fog lamps installed at showroom itself and get 17 inch aftermarket alloys and upgrade the interior to look like Z AT version.These cost me close to Rs.2L and would be saving around Rs.3-4L over Z AT.

Returning late from my trip on 30th Mar 2019, i was very much impressed by the way an Innova drove (not a Taxi).

By the time i left A2B Petrol Pump (near Thoppur Toll Plaza in Salem - Dharmapuri - Krishnagiri road), it was well past 11:00 night and i wanted to reach my Home early, good 180 odd kilometers away at B'lore North. My habit is to join a "traffic-free road" and gradually pick up speed. As i waited, i spotted an MUV with fancy blue-white lights go past; the lights caught my attention. After every halt, it always takes about 3-4 minutes, for me to reach my desired speeds. Soon, i breezed past the MUV with same fancy lights, doing about 120-130 kph; noticed that it was an Innova.

The Innova started racing me. i don't like to be a sweeper car to others, so i out-accelerated the Innova and disappeared. In this section of the 2+2 Lane NH44, no matter what speeds you do, you end up behind a "group of trucks blocking you completely" once every few kilometers. The Innova caught up with me, when i was blocked. Again i out-accelerated, disappeared and settled at stupid speed...but the Innova was back. This went on for about 50 odd kilometers BUT every single time the Innova was back behind me and matched whatever speed i was doing.

For an MUV with high Center of Gravity, the Innova did pretty well to race a low slung Sedan. The Driver was the only occupant and THAT could be reason he was pushing the Innova; i have to give it to him, he properly slowed down at Curves. Kudos to the Driver & Innova for that enjoyable race [clap] ... This composure at speeds and Toyota's reliability could be the reasons why Innova sells in such high numbers [cheers]

Footnote: i lost the Innova at Krishnagiri, as i turned towards B'lore ... he could have stopped at K'giri or headed towards Chennai.
